This is My Truth Now
1. You’re on your way to a birthday dinner that your friends have thrown for you. When you arrive, your favorite author is having dinner by himself or herself and asks you to sit with them, before you even see your friends or they see you. You have two choices: (1) You can sit with the author, but can’t tell your friends that you’ve abandoned them for three hours, or (2) Meet your friends and lose the only chance you’ll ever have to talk with the author. Pick one or the other — no exceptions or communication to your friends to tell them about the author — and explain why：
I would definitely take the chance to spend time with my favorite author. My friends know me, and would understand how important that would be to me. Sounds like the best birthday present ever to me!
2. You’ve got an opportunity to spend a few hours alone “in your bedroom” with a character from any book you’ve previously read. The character tells you that (s)he would like to lock the door and spend some alone time with you. What book and character is it, and do you decide to enter the room and lock the door, or tell them you aren’t interested?
Jamie Fraser from Outlander, and absolutely.
3. If you could turn any male character from one of your favorite books into a female character (or change a female into a male) in the book or book series, which one and why?
Kvothe from Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I just think it would be really cool and bad-ass for that character to be a woman, and I would like to see how it would influence the circumstances of the series.
4. What blogger currently on your follower’s list (meaning they follow you too) do you admire the most and why?
The Orangutan Librarian. This monkey has posts that are very insightful, but also hilarious. I always look forward to reading their stuff. There is always a comment back and I admire the involvement in the bookish community.
5. If you could change any one decision your favorite book character made, what would it be and why?
Harry going after Sirius in Order of the Phoenix. I get it, but I really don’t think he had to die, and if Harry had just listened for once it probably could have been avoided.
6. If you could pick 1 character from a book and 1 character from a TV show you watch (that is NOT based on a book) to be in a relationship together, who would you choose, and why?
Buffy Summers and Eric Northman (Book Eric, not TV Eric). I feel like Eric is a perfect mix of Angel and Spike, and he would be perfect for Buffy.
7. It’s your last day on Earth. As you are about to cross that final finish line, a mysterious shadow appears, giving you a choice: (1) You can go move forward to whatever comes next for you [based on your own spiritual or religious beliefs], or (2) you can become a character in a book series and exist permanently doing whatever that author chooses to do with you in the book. Which do you choose, and if it’s option 2, reveal the book and author.
I would go into the Harry Potter universe and let Ms. Rowling do with me as she pleases.
8. If you could steal a pet from someone in any book you’ve read but had to replace it with a friend’s pet (meaning they wouldn’t ever see their pet again), would you do it? If so, explain the who and why.
I don’t really feel that strong of a connection with literary pets, and I know my friends would be ugly crying without their pets, so I wouldn’t do it.
9. If you could turn someone from your real life into a character from a book, who from your life, who in the book and why?
I am fortunate enough to have so many amazing people in my life, and I really value all of my relationships, so I wouldn’t replace anyone.
10. Post a picture of the cover of a book you read in 2000 and the book you are currently reading now. (Note: if you weren’t alive in 2000, pick the first book you ever read and tell everyone what year it was from).
11. Your favorite character (under 18) needs a place to stay for 3 months and asks you if (s)he could stay in your spare room (yes, you have one for the sake of this question). Who is it and what is the reason (s)he needs to stay with you?
Harry Potter is hunting horcruxes and needs a safe house. I got you.
12. What is one superpower/magic skill that a favorite character of your has that you wish you had as well? What character, what power/skill and why?(you can change this question when added to your blog, but please let me know your answer to this question in the comments below)
Besides just wanting to be a Wizard, I think having Nanny from Glass Sword’s power to change her physical form would be so cool and useful.
If you choose not to accept the tag, you have to follow through on whatever dare the person who tags you chooses.
You must finish a series you are in the middle of before you can start anything else. If you’re not currently in a series, you must start and finish a trilogy before reading anything else.
