Reader Question: Living in a book

If you were to live in any book universe, which ‘verse & character would you choose and why?

I found this tricky, because while I have many books I adore, most of them would be rather stressful/unpleasant to live in. 🙂 That’s what makes them so entertaining, of course!

I think if I had to choose one, I’d probably go with Sophie from HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE. Because there’s a lot of fun as well as conflict in her life, and who wouldn’t want to hang out with the Wizard Howl in a castle that can take you into different worlds? I could even stop by Earth now and then if I wanted!

Your turn, readers: what book would you choose to live in?

  1. My friend started a (short-lived) forum for discussing literature where everyone had to take on the persona of someone from a book, and I chose to be Sophie, too! =] I love that book (and the anime, though Christian Bale sounds like he was a bit bored when he was doing the dub XD)!

    As an aside, it’s (somehow) been several months now since I read Give up the Ghost, but I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. I’ve read a number of new YA novels since then (not naming names), and I think yours stands up really well in comparison. The writing was consistently good, there was never a point where the story was unbelievable (in the world within the book), and you did a great job of creating memorable characters and addressing issues that are relevant to teens (and adults).

    I hope it’s doing really well for you, and I look forward to your future novels!
