Tell me something Tuesday #2


Tell me something Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Cambria Hebert, in which she asks us something, and we post our answer. And the question of the week is:

If you could travel into any book to the setting and meet the characters which book would it be and why?


How can I answer this question? I've read so many books, thought "I want to go there right now" so many times, it's impossible not to feel torn between, say, 150 stories and such. One of the things I observe most in books is the setting itself. If I'm not comfortable with it, it's hard to get a hold of the character's point of view and feel whatever he's feeling. That said, I don't often read a book whose setting doesn't please me. 

There are, possibly, a hundred different answers and books that I wish I could visit, characters I dreamed so much of meeting... but there is one, in special, that I always think about. You know when you love a book and a character so much you dream of living there, of participating in the adventures they went, or simply talking to someone? 

Halfway to the Grave, by Jeaniene Frost, is this kind of book for me. I love Jeaniene's writing style, the world she created, how vampires are the real thing, bloodthirsty and all, but they can still choose a different life. If you were good when you were human, this aspect will only get heightened if you get turned into a vampire. Same thing with evilness. And I adore that. Frost can create good vampires without turning them into Edward. 

The characters I would wish to meet are Cat and Bones, simple as that. Cat is one of my favorite main characters (if not the favorite), and I'd love to talk to her, train with her, get to know her. She's a girl I'd love to be friends with. Bones... is a different story. Throughout the series, I fell for him (seriously, who didn't?!) but just talking and training with him would be fantastic. 

So, there it is. Halfway to the Grave. It wasn't so bad or hard to answer this question, after all... =D

What about you? If you could travel straight to a book's setting, and meet its characters, what would be your destination?
