Ooooh, I don’t think I’ve ever participated in a meme before, but I simply couldn’t resist the one I found on Sara Donati’s website.
You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?
I had to think about this for a second, and then it hit me: The Jungle Book. Actually, both Jungle Books, if possible. Those books had it all: adventure, comedy, pathos, social commentary, really cool characters, poetry. I have read and re-read those books a million times and I still get goosebumps when I read “Now Chil the Kite brings home the night that Mang the Bat sets free…”
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Heh, going back to the Jungle Books: as a little girl, definitely Mowgli. And, oooooh this is embarrassing, but also
Asterix. Yes, as a little girl I had a crush on a diminutive cartoon Gaul sporting a winged helmet and a walrus mustache. AndandAND, I’m not done humiliating myself yet: the second-in-command elf in Elfquest. Can’t remember his name. Silver hair, was the astrologer/astronomer guy.
I haven’t had any crushes on fictional book characters as an adult, but a few years ago I discovered Cowboy Bebop and promptly fell in love with Spike Spiegel. Don’t worry, I haven’t sunk to the level of doing shit like typing “LOL SO KAWAIIIII!!!11 ^_^ “… YET.
The last book you bought is?
I bought three books at the same time from Amazon.com: The Pirate Next Door by Jennifer Ashley, Duchess In Love by Eloisa James and Worlds Enough and Time by Dan Simmons. God knows when I’m going to get to them. I mean, y’all seen those pictures of my TBR shelves, right??
Five books you would take to a deserted island:
I HATE THESE KINDS OF QUESTIONS. Expand the list to about 50 and we’ll talk. And yes, the Jungle Books will be among them.
