Q: What is the first thing you would do if you woke up to find yourself in your favorite book?


jeremysadler.net
Recently my favorite books have been The Song of Fire and Ice series, and I've made no secret of the fact that Arya is my favorite character. I love her because she's independent and really intelligent. She can out-smart just about everyone, even adults (she's only twelve) and people that are technically much smarter than her. I don't want to give too many spoilers, but let's just say the one thing she totally isn't getting is the feelings a certain armorer's apprentice might have for her. Sometimes I just want to smack her over the head so she gets it. If I suddenly found myself in that world--well, first I'd find myself a short sword and a decent horse. Then I'd go find Arya, give her a swift kick in the pants, and make sure she understood the whole Gendry situation. ;D

After that, I'd probably high-tail it to the Wall and see if Jon Snow would be interested in a make-out session. ;D

How about you? What would you do in your favorite book?

  10. Some people just need a good swift kick up the butt. Any Star Wars book so I can use a light saber. That and Cyrano.
