#FF: Groundhog Day

feature-and-follow

Once again, I’m joining in again with Feature & Follow hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week they post a prompt, which you respond to, and then spend some time visiting and following other blogs (the following is an important part). Feel free to join in – it’s fun and a great way to meet other bloggers.

This week, the prompt is…

Groundhog Day! What book or scene from a book could you live in and have it on “repeat?”

This is a difficult one as I don’t re-read many books so I’m going to have to go back to my childhood, when I read books again and again, and used to go to bed dreaming of the worlds I could live in and the characters I could be friends with.  For me, then, there are two choices…

…first up I would join the Famous Five (making us the Famous Six!), which is where I think my love of crime fiction started.  As a child I was a real tomboy and really, really, wanted to be George – my favourite character – and have the freedom to disappear in caravans and boats and live on islands without my parents.

…next would be Swallows and Amazons, another world of adventure I wished I could live.  I could just picture myself sailing boats around the lakes, pretending to be pirates and fighting my enemies.

The funny thing is that, as an adult, I don’t like camping, fishing or the great outdoors and would probably be much better picking a world with Egyptian cotton sheets and five star hotels but I don’t read many books like those!

What about you – what world could you live in on repeat?
