Have you ever read a book and thought that it would be fun to do one thing that was the characters hobby. To jump into the book and follow your favourite literary characters around for one day as if they were your best friends. What would you do?
Unfortunately, I have so many, but here are a few to get your bookish minds racing.
- An ultimate dream of mine is to go to Middle Earth and hand around in some of the choice places, The Shire and Rivendell being just two of them. I would love to meet some hobbits and elves, how incredible would that be.
- The next would probably be to attend a ball with the popular Bennett sisters from Jane Austins novel. They seem to be like women in the know of where the best parties are and who are the most eligible bachelors at all of them.
- Recently, I have been reading the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, and I just love the connection between the protagonist Celeana Sardothien and the Captain of the Guard Chaol Westfall, to join them on one of their training days I think would be fun… (I would be soooo far behind them and dead in the first five minutes.)
- When I was 12 I watched as a young girl from my favourite children’s book walked into a wardrobe and my entire childhood came to life. I would love to be able to walk through the wardrobe, through the fur coats and come out in Narnia. What an absolute dream.
- I have been called many things in my life… Mad being one of them, and where do the mad people go… Well the Hatters Tea Party that’s where. I have a little secret… I always wanted to stumble on a rabbit and follow him down a hole into Wonderland. Even though, it did get a little weird, I like weird.
- What a treat would it be to have a writing session with literature’s favourite authoress, Jo March from Little Women would have a thing or two to say about my writing and I would love to hear every single one.
- Having a shopping trip with the fashionista of the modern fiction world. Lou Clarke would help me make my wardrobe go from plain and simple clothes to colourful, budgeted and different pieces of art. That would be quite something.
- Any person who grew up reading Harry Potter would most likely have this down on their fictional bucket list. I would love to go to Hogwarts, even for one day and attend classes with the brightest witch of their age… Hermionie Granger.
- F. Scott Fitzgerald brought us the colourful and exciting world of J. Gatsby, to be at just one of the extravagant parties that he would throw to catch the eye of the one he loves would just be an experience beyond them all.
- My inner child would feel completed if the boy who never grows up turned up at my window… Neverland is my ultimate travel destination. Sadly, Peter Pan would probably think i’m a little old at the moment to share his adventures.
- Lastly, (because I could go on forever) I would love to have a different type of magic lesson, this time with the amazing Merlin and his student Wart. To even be included in the legend would be incredible.
11 items on my fictional bucket list, and all of them I would do in a heartbeat if I had the option. I love that books can do this to us, they can take us away from our seemingly mundane life and give us a purpose even if it is only for a couple of hours a day. That’s why I read. To experience the impossible.
