Book Blogger Hop Day: March 25-27

This week on Denim-Jacket Librarian Dishes:

"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Goddess Test
A Question for my Wonderful Readers

Book Blogger Hop

As Crazy For Books says:

Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTis an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!

This week's question is:

If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?

My Answer: Wow, these are always such tough questions because there's so many to pick from. In the way of series, I'd have to say I would want to be in the fantasy realms of Ixia and Sitia from Maria V. Snyder's Study Trilogy and Glass Trilogy or Tortall from Tamora Pierce's Lioness Quartet. I cannot resist realms that involve horseback riding as the main mode of transportation and learning magic and fighting skills.

For books, it would be a choice between three books for me: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden because the setting is so gorgeous (I've always wanted to visit Japan in one of it's golden ages) not to mention the beautiful kimono; The Princess's Dragon by Susan Trombley because it is a fantasy realm with dragons and an unconventional princess (which are both awesome traits in my opinion); and I have to have a werewolf book in here so it would be Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause has werewolves in it!  But only if I could be one of the pack and a friend of Vivian's.

Which book or series would you want to put yourself into? ^_^


  1. Great choices! I could barely decide between The Enchanted Forrest Chronicles and the Tortall universe but EFC has a bit more humor in it! You know how much I like to laugh!

  2. I have not heard of any of these series! I am going to check them out! My answer can be found here

  3. I'm a huge fantasy fan, too. Just love all the magic and dragons and other super awesome geeky stuff :D
    I'd like to enter Memoirs of Geisha and Blood and Chocolate, too :)

  4. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

  5. Memoirs of a Geisha sounds like a good book to be in, but it would be scary too.

    Hope everyone has a fun hope.

    My answer has three choices - stop by if you like.

  6. Hopping by :) I loved the world Maria V. Snyder created! I'm not sure I'd want to live there, but it was fascinating to read about.

  7. Great book selections, DJL! I loved Memoirs of a Geisha... that would be such an amazing environment to join in for a day or so :)

  8. Follower stopping by on the Hop. You made some great choices! I love books with settings like Poison Study and the like. I hope you have a great weekend. Happy reading!
