Happy it's Friday!!!

I don't know about y'all, but this week seemed to slow down about halfway through... and it seemed like it was taking forever by Thursday afternoon.   But now, it's Friday!   Which means a few things: first, even though I'm working today, I'm not working this weekend (yay!) and second, it's time for the Book Blogger Hop!

yeah, yeah... we'll hop when we're good and ready

I'm always grateful to Jennifer over at Crazy for Books for hosting this, although I can easily spend way too much time online as a result of it.   This week's question is:   "If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"   I'm expecting to see lots of answers this Hop that say Hogwarts, or Narnia, and frankly, those came to mind (I mean, magic is cool.  And talking animals could be cool).  But, I wanted to expand my boundaries just a bit.

So, I'm choosing someplace different..... I think I would be interesting to live in Wonderland.  You know, like Alice in Wonderland Wonderland --- where the flowers might speak to you, and rabbits wear waistcoats?   I've always liked the illustrations by John Tenniel, and as a child, wondered what such a place would be like.   Scary at times, certainly, but also could be quite fun.

Happy Friday, everyone -- and have a great weekend!!!!

What a great answer! I didn't even think of Wonderland. But, it would be fun to experience it. I also think it would be fun to experience Willy Wonka's chocolate factory with all the yummy sweets and cool inventions.

Good one! Not sure I'd want to meet the queen -- she might chop my head off, but some other parts might be good.

Happy Reading!

Awesome choice! It would be fascinating but I always remember being a tad freaked out by Wonderland as a perhaps on a day I'm feeling brave!

Also, did you have a great time in Italy? I loved it and hopefully will get to see more of it one day. It seems from your Wordless Wednesday post that we at least both went to Pisa! :-)

Wonderland would be great to visit, I agree. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Have a great weekend!

BUNNIES! I think you are very brave to choose Wonderland. A little too wild for me haha.

That's a fine idea, Jo! I chose not to do this one because I already answered the same question for another hop a few months ago. I said I'd like to travel to Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Macondo... Perhaps the world of Watership Down would be another interesting 'talking animal' kingdom to visit, no?
See you on Sunday (or Saturday - I opened up the poetry hop for the whole weekend to make it more relaxed for everyone).

Oh great answer :) I've seen a lot of Hogwartses and Lord of the Ringses but this is the first Wonderland. I bet you'll never guess what I chose.

Wonderland is a great choice!! I'd have to take the opportunity to meet the Mad Hatter.

Ooh Wonderland is a great choice, especially for a day trip.

Hi, Jo. Thanks for the visit. Nice pick. You're the first one I've seen to pick Wonderland. It would certainly make for an interesting place to spend the day.

I just became a follower. Love your blog design, as well. :)

That is what a lot of my facebook friends said! I've never read the book and unfortunately haven't found a wonderland movie I liked. I'll have to look up the illustrations you talk about.

By the way, your blog is gorgeous! I'm addicted to all the details in the image!
