Literary Vacations: If you could take a trip this summer to any place within a fictional book, where would you go? Tell us about your summer dream vacation!All I want to do is sit around thinking about The Scorpio Races, so I really want to go see the races and the water horses. However, it's not November, so I guess I have to choose a different answer.
Is it a cop out to say that I want to go to Hogwarts? Yes... so let's go with Prague from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Prague is the perfect setting for a girl with blue hair who belongs to another world or an art heist or a mystery involving secret societies. I think it's a good vacation in general. And, hey, maybe I can drop in at Hogwarts on my way back to the States.
Q: What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?
I've never been good with favorites. At all. So, if we assume that The Scorpio Races is currently my favorite book, we can assume that Maggie Stiefvater is my favorite author, but I'm going to a signing in less than two weeks and already freaking out about what I am going to say to her. So..... let's go with someone else.
I often say that John Green is my favorite author, but I went to a signing and said something to him and then felt stupid, so I'm not going to go with him. I'm going to go with Maureen Johnson, because I know that I can say something to her that will make her smile instead of making her look at me funny. What I am going to say is: I have snacks.
