I happily got through a few books too so there will be reviews up as soon as I’ve gathered my post-holiday thoughts 🙂 A little bit of fantasy, a little bit of humour and a little bit of history so a bit of mixture coming up!
I thought that seeing as I was all rejuvinated from my time away, I’d take part in the Book Blogger Hop for this weekend! It’s been a while since I took part, mainly because this is the first Friday I’m not at work in a while.
This week’s question: If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and where would that place be?
My first reaction to this post was the site of Kingsbridge Cathedral in twelfth-century England as beautifully crafted by Ken Follett in Pillars of the Earth. My head is filled with images of all the stunning Italian cathedrals and churches I have seen over the past couple of weeks and I can only imagine how inspirational and awe-inspiring it must be to see the vision and expertise it must take to turn a bunch of rocks into such a sight. Plus, I love the thought of experiencing medieval England in all its grim reality!
Although I teetered for a second towards The Seven Kingdoms of Kristin Cashore’s Graceling because I’d be curious to find out what my ‘Grace’ would be, if I had one, I’m sticking with my gut reaction in Kingsbridge, even though I know that a day wouldn’t give me long to explore!
