RTW—Living in another world
Today’s RTW topic is……drumroll…….
If you could live in the story world of one book, what would it be?
Yeah, the answer is Harry Potter. I mean, duh. Show me one person who wouldn’t want to enroll in Hogwarts or take a stroll through Diagon Alley, and I’ll show you a LIAR. But that answer was a wee too easy to come up with, so let me pick a first runner-up in the event that Hogsmeade should be unable to perform its escapist duties.
When I was a kid, my sister and I would pretend that we were BFFs living next door to each other in these fabulous and amazing houses. I always imagined I was living in the house from the movie Clue.
My sister, ever the laid-back
California Florida girl, opted to pretend she lived in the house from The Parent Trap (Hayley Mills version, not Lindsay Lohan).
Putting aside the fact that it would take some pretty lax HOA regulations to allow these two houses to be built next door to each other, these are movies, not books. But how funny that my tastes from when I was 9 aren’t much different than they are today? Opulence and architecture? Yes, please!
That established, I choose to live in the world of Pride and Prejudice. One word:
What about you? What story world would you live in?
