Here's this week's question:

If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

Fascinating question!  The one big problem I see with it is picking a book, since there are several that I love to the point that I wish I could live in them...

Those who have been reading my blog on a regular basis know how much I love The Twilight Saga and Jane Eyre, as well as the Harry Potter series and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.  Since I have emphasized the first two in previous posts, I'll pick one of the other two.  Okay...I'm still undecided... Well, what the heck!  I'm going to pick both series -- HP and LOTR!!!

I'll start with the Harry Potter series.  Since my high school years weren't very memorable, I was totally enchanted when I first encountered Hogwarts!  How I wish I could go to such a school!  If I were to write myself into the series, I would definitely be a friend of Hermione's, or perhaps a cousin of hers.  I would be her age, too, so we could discuss boys together, and engage in other  "girl talk", although of course we would also cover more intellectual topics; after all, Hermione is the star pupil of her class! 

I think I would be the daughter of a Muggle couple, too, so that I would be on an equal footing with Hermione.  We would do research projects together, bouncing ideas off each other.  We could even plan spells together.  I would join in all of her adventures with Harry and Ron, too, naturally! 

One more thing -- I would be the one to snag Harry in the end!! 

As for LOTR, I think I would love to be an elf, like Legolas, except that I would be an unusual type of elf -- one sharing a special bond with horses.  I would be a skilled equestrian.  However, since I've always been awed by wizards, I would apprentice myself to Gandalf, who would teach me the magic of the forests and the rivers.  Thus, I would be part of the Fellowship of the Ring, riding my magnificent, snow-white stallion along with Frodo, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn, and Boromir. 

Normally, a female elf would never be allowed to go into battle with the men.  But then, I would not be a 'typical' female elf.  The thing is, my talent with horses would enable me to 'charm' the enemies' horses right from under them...a very convenient skill indeed, in the heat of battle! 


  1. Hi, Maria! :) I actually haven't read the Harry Potter books yet (though I've heard they're insanely good!), but I think that being a wizard would be so cool. Plus, I'm a big fan of academy stories and a school full of wizards would be an awesome place to live!

    Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have an awesome weekend! :)

  2. High school in the Harry Potter world would have been SO much interesting :D
    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend!

  3. Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog, you put a big smile on my face. I love your answer, I'm always so happy to see other people who love Harry Potter as much as I do. I'd love to be friends with Hermione too, and hang out with the boys. If you end up with Harry in the end, then I want to end up with Ron. Sorry Hermione! lol New follower - have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Thank you for stopping by my blog! You're such a sweetie. ^_^ Happy Follow Friday!!!

  5. Hey!
    I love your answer, being part of the HP or the LOTR world would be great! An elf, what a beautiful thought.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog, and putting up a link to it in your great sidebar! I wish you'd have a button so I could put it up on my blog too...

    See you soon!
