Q: What is the first thing you would do if you woke up to find yourself in your favorite book?
Recently my favorite books have been The Song of Fire and Ice series, and I've made no secret of the fact that Arya is my favorite character. I love her because she's independent and really intelligent. She can out-smart just about everyone, even adults (she's only twelve) and people that are technically much smarter than her. I don't want to give too many spoilers, but let's just say the one thing she totally isn't getting is the feelings a certain armorer's apprentice might have for her. Sometimes I just want to smack her over the head so she gets it. If I suddenly found myself in that world--well, first I'd find myself a short sword and a decent horse. Then I'd go find Arya, give her a swift kick in the pants, and make sure she understood the whole Gendry situation. ;D

After that, I'd probably high-tail it to the Wall and see if Jon Snow would be interested in a make-out session. ;D

How about you? What would you do in your favorite book?


  1. Lol, great answer. I really really need to start reading that series already. Been putting off for sooo long.

  2. haha awesome...thanks for stopping by.

  3. I haven't heard of this series. Sounds pretty interesting!

    New follower, hope you can stop by as well!

  4. Jon Snow = bamf hottie. I thought about Westoros, but figured it'd be too dangerous for a single woman like me to really enjoy myself. I love Arya too!

  5. Just looking at the pic I say NO WAY LOL thanks so much for the follow Old follower GFC and NW Blogs so I follow Linky too know! Thanks

  6. I really love independent and intelligent characters. Throw in the need to kick them in the shins for something that is glaringly obvious to everyone else and you have a winner. Sounds like a great plan if you found yourself there ;) Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  7. old follower....Liesel, your answer is just priceless!! after hogwarts, I might want to visit Interchron! I loved your book!
    Happy reading and writing!

  8. I'm not familiar with this book. Sounds like an interesting read.

    Thanks for stopping by :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I've followed you back :) And happy friday to you, too!

  16. I've been wanting to start that series for a while now! Great choice! Thanks for stopping by this week. Old follower :)

  17. cool picks!

    old follower

  18. AWESOME choice! I'm surprised more people haven't had the same one. I was torn between SoFAI and my pick. I couldn't agree more about Arya — a favorite who needed a kick about the whole Gendry situation. And of course, one has to make out with Jon Snow. *sigh*

  19. I have never read the Ice or Fire series yet. I heard that it was quite violent, but maybe they are being too strict? Either way, new follower.:)

  20. Just blogging by.

  21. Haven't heard of this book before! Great answer though!

  22. Thanks for following Imagine a World! I totally agree. Arya is awesome and I would totally hang out with her if I could :)

    Follower via GFC

  23. Hi Liesel, I love the Fire and Ice series and Arya is one of my fave's as well.

    Old Follower!

    Thanks for stopping by My FF

  26. This is definitely a good series. Arya is one brilliant girl.

    Thanks for stopping by at

  27. New Follower! Thanks for following my blog!

  28. I'm only in Clash of Kings right now (up to date in the tv adaption though) and I ship Arya and Gendry so hard! Which makes me feel kind of weird cause she's 10/11 right now but I don't care!! They're my OTP and I'm hoping Martin with his notorious reputation doesn't kill one or both of them off :(

    Thanks for following us! I returned the favour :D

  29. Never heard of this series but it sounds amazing, since you have such a strong emotion towards Arya, will check it out!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
