Hi everyone! Welcome to the Alaskan Book Cafe! I am Cristi.  Today is Follow My Book Blog Friday, (or FF). FF is hosted by 2 wonderfully awesome blogs, and Every Friday they feature 2 new blog and today I am one of the featured blogs, the other is Alaiel at! *The crowd roars!*  I am so excited!!  For those new to my blog I read a wide variety of genres so you probably never really know what you are going to find here. I also have my grandson, who lives with me and is on the autism spectrum, on here sometimes doing children's book reviews. You can see him by clicking on One Face of Autism in my tabs. I also have pictures of Alaska both on a tab and also on posts. Right now I am hosting a giveaway for Ghost on Black Mountain by Ann Hite so I hope you will all enter that. It is an awesome book and there will be 2 winners. So I hope you look around and like watch you see. Have a super awesome weekend!
As you all know there is a question each week. Today's question is:    It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?

Omgosh! There are so many! I want to live in Storyland. A magical place where you move from one book world into another much the way we travel city to city. That's not too much to ask is it? 
My first pick would have to be the world of Anne of Green Gables. I have loved that book since childhood. Others I would like to visit are the world of the Midnight Breed series. I would so love to be one of the women living in that world. A bit dangerous yes but I am sure I would be kept safe.  I would love to walk into the world of the book I review below, Pirates of Savannah. Also dangerous but who has not dreamed of being a pirate? The world of Sookie Stackhouse would be another awesome place to go. All the different breeds coming out, vampires, shifters, the fae. It makes me dizzy from excitement. Really I think there should be a Book World to rival Disney World. I know you all would join me for a vacation there.

Please visit my fellow bloggers in the hop!

I agree with you one-hundred percent! There are way too many books to choose from -- I want them all to become a reality! :)

But you're right about the other thing too: I've always wanted to be a pirate! I'm not sure if I can speak for everybody else, but almost every single pirate book I've read just drives my desire to be one even more!

Here's my Follow Friday! And you can still enter my 300 Followers Giveaway if you haven't already! :)

Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Lol, I like the Book World idea! And you sure had many options. I have plenty awesome worlds in books, but I have a harder time choosing what I'd like as a reality, lol.

Congratulations on being featured! I'm a follower. :) Have a great weekend! My answer can be found here!

Raine said...

Congrats on being featured! Wow, I like this idea of yours where there is a place called Storyland and all the places from the books are in different zip codes. Fascinating idea! Swashbuckling there matey!Hehe. Yes, it's fun to be a pirate (if dangerous too) but it all needs to be at least five steps ahead from the arm of the law. :) New follower. My FF answer:

Hi! (returning follower) Congrats on being featured!!!!

LOVE the Storyland idea!!!--sign me up!!! also, gotta love Anne!--I used to be glued to the television whenever PBS would run their telethons--They always seemed to have an Anne marathon!!!

There are so many good books, I had a tough time picking just one--but my top 3 are Hogwarts, Tamora Pierce's Tortall, and TLC's Thalassinia--magic, magic, and mermaids!!! :D

Have a great weekend!!!

Happy FF I'm a new follower. Congratulations on being this weeks feature. I would love to go into Sookie's world and meet Eric.

Here is my answer if you fancy a hopping over

Happy Reading.

Pawing Through Books said...

A storyland would be great! Moving to new worlds whenever we wanted! Sookie's world would also be fascinating, but without all of the violence that comes with it! :)

Have a great weekend!
