Hello everyone! Quickly before I delve too deeply into the post, I’m doing a little self promotion…The Cosy Book Shoppe will be opening up for business soon offering a twist on “blind date with a book”, custom tea blends and some other tea and book related goods. I will be doing a giveaway right before the Grand Opening on Facebook and Instagram (there will be two, one on each) so if you aren’t following The Cosy Book Shoppe on Facebook or Instagram (or both haha!), you’ll miss out on some yummy goodies (as well as more book and tea related posts). Not too mention, if you haven’t subscribed to this blog/site, you’ll miss out on the Grand Opening of the shoppe! So stay tuned and with that, shameless self promotion over.
Today I am coming at you with a tag post! This is the Epic Reads Tag. I originally saw this Tag on (Over)Analysing Literature and you can view her answers HERE. So, without further ado…
1) If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to lunch, who would you invite and what would you serve them?
Hmmmm…I would probably have to go with either JK Rowling or Diana Gabaldon because let’s face it, I can’t pick one of anything. For fictional characters, for JK Rowling I would want Ginny Weasley because she kicks ass and if it was Diana Gabaldon, I would want to invite Claire Fraser just to talk to her about the past. I love history and she has been through a lot of it and some of my favorite time periods and places!
2) What book do you wish the author would write a prequel for?
Oh gosh, I would love to say Harry Potter, but I am not going to use that for every answer (although c’mob JK, we all have a good feeling it will happen, so please just write it!). Other than that, I would like to see a prequel for…yea I’ve got nothing right now. I feel like a lot of the books that I read and enjoy have a pretty well written storyline that is well developed. I guess it might be nice to see Claire from Outlander and her experiences in the same way that Diana has done Jamie’s. Other than that I’m not really sure.
3) Which two characters (not from the same book) would make a good couple?
Good question! I have to admit I’m not a big “shipper” so this will be interesting. I think that Kelsea from The Queen of the Tearling) would be a good match with Mikael Blomkvist from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series if he was about 20 years younger. She is a strong and intelligent individual and while he has both of those traits as well, he also has the political and socio economic knowledge to help her. ***** I have not finished the second book in The Queen of the Tearling series and I am fully aware of the huge disturbing age gap between the two characters, that is why I said if he was 20 years younger.
4) If you ran into your favorite author on the subway and only could say one sentence to them, who is it and what would it be?
Thank you for creating something so magical that truly changed my life.
5) What book made you a reader and why?
Heidi, the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, and of course Harry Potter. I loved the way that these authors really took their story and brought the reader directly into it. You felt that you were really in the story and right along with the characters. It cemented my love of reading.
6)Your bookshelf just caught fire. Show the book you’d save.
I can’t. I just can’t. No, really guys I cannot name just one book that I would save. It would be multiple books as there are too many. Although in the same answer, there are other things that are more important (obviously) and books are replaceable if this was a real world situation.
7) Which dystopian world would you want to live in if you had to choose one? Why?
The Hunger Games in District 4 because I love the water 🙂
8)What is your most epic read of all time?
Oh gosh. I feel like this whole tag has only been about basically two books/authors, but oh well. My most epic read would have to be Outlander. Easily.
So that is it for this Tag. I don’t have anyone to tag in this, because I tag everyone! If you want to do it, I encourage you to do it. I will have another post coming for you guys soon!
