Meme: Just Another Book Meme

Posted 24 May, 2009 by Li in Meme / 0 Comments

First off, just wanted to comment that I changed the layout here on WordPress…felt like changing it and this one’s pretty clean and organized. 🙂

But moving on…meme time! Got it from the book_memes community at livejournal 🙂

 

1. Name the book that has most made you want to visit a particular location.
Reading Carols Ruiz Zafon’s The Shadow of the Wind makes me want to visit Barcelona now. in the past, Spain wasn’t exactly at the top of my list of places to visit but after reading it (and The Spanish Bow by Andromeda Romano-Lax just reinforced the notion), I want to visit Spain, there’s a lot more history and culture in that country than I’ve always thought.

 

2. Which author’s fictional world would you most like to live in?
Middle Earth! 😀 Walk in the streets of Minas Tirith, ride with the Rohirrim, try to catch a glimpse of the elves, hang out with the hobbits…it’d be awesome 😀

 

3. If you were off on an adventure, which five literary characters would you want to take with you?
Good question…
– Aragorn from LOTR (for protection, hehe; he knows what to do in the country, after all)
– Eomer from LOTR (also from protection…plus Arwen’s already claimed Aragorn and I need some eye candy in this group *loves Eomer anyways*)
– JonMarc Vahanian from Chronicles of the Necromancer (for his resourceful and a dose wise ass-ness, lol)
– Fermín Romero de Torres from The Shadow of the Wind (because he’d make a great sidekick and has the best lines—he and Vahanian would probably clash a bit, but whatever)
– Azhure from The Axis trilogy (because she’s tough and level-headed. Not to mention I need a girl in the group so it’s not too lonely xD)

 

4. Name three books that you would take with you if you were suddenly uprooted from all your stuff.
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (counts as one, lol)
Persuasion by Jane Austen
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

 

5. You find yourself alone in a strange, potentially hostile place. Pick a literary character who would fill the ‘?’ in ‘WW?D’.
Okay, after scratching my head and wondering what this question meant, I finally understand it: “What would Aragorn do?” 😀
