Today’s Topic: Bookish Time Travel
Created By: The Library Wizard
1. What is your favorite historical setting for a book?
This is a really hard question for me since I love historical fiction of all periods, but I’d have to say the Jazz Age (1920’s) and 1930’s as well.
2. What writer/s would you like to travel back in time to meet?
There are a ton! To name a few Zora Neale Hurston, William Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Toni Cade Bambara. The list would go on and on!
3. What book/s would you travel back in time and give to your younger self?
Probably the Harry Potter series and more of the classics that are geared to younger readers.
4. What book/s would you travel forward in time and give to your older self? (What book do you want to remind your older self of because it was really important to you?)
One book that I read that I thought was excellent growing up and that I would give to my older self is A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith. I really like it’s theme about the determination to rise above difficult circumstances.
5. What is your favorite futuristic setting from a book? E.g. Panem from The Hunger Games
(said no one ever)
Futuristic? I can’t really name any off of the top of my head right now.
6. What is your favorite book that is set in a different time period (can be historical or futuristic)?
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, The Color Purple by Alice Walker, Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson, to name a few. Since I read so much historical fiction it’s hard for me to pick only one book!
7. Spoiler Time: Do you ever skip ahead to the end of a book just to see what happens?
Yes, I do. But I think I’m not the only reader guilty of this habit.
8. If you had a Time Turner, where would you go and what would
I would go to the age of the Harlem Renaissance, meet with the famous Jazz musicians of the time, and dance the night away.
9. Favorite book (if you have one) that includes time travel or takes place in multiple time periods?
My most recent read that would be my favorite is The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig.
10. What book/series do you wish you could go back and read again for the first time?
Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine, Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon, Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler, Blonde Roots by Bernadine Evaristo (You can clearly see that I’m having a hard time picking one book for each question, lol)
