Today’s tag is inspired by a post I saw while reading Kat’s Life and Other Disasters blog. While I wasn’t explicitly tagged to do this post, I am a 90’s kid, and as such I feel uniquely qualified to participate.
Interested to see what adventures I seek? Keep on reading to find out my thoughts and opinions.

Which character would you love to go on an adventure with?
Samwise Gamgee from the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Besides him being, at least in my opinion, the one hero to rule them all I would love to go on an adventure with Sam because I can guarantee that I would both be fed incredibly well, supplies permitting, and protected at all cost.
If you could be any character for the day, who would you be and why?
Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Now if you know me you would have probably guessed that my answer would have been Hermione Granger, but here me out. Luna is an embodiment of the whimsy that makes magic, well, magical. She doesn’t apologize to anyone for being herself, even though she sometimes comes across as downright batty. Also, she is not a part of the Golden Trio and therefore she isn’t expected to go looking for dangerous situations.
What book is on your TBR bucket list?
Lethal White (Cormoran Strike #4) by Robert Galbraith (Pseudonym for J.K. Rowling). This book was published on Tuesday and ever since I was able to pick it up it has been calling to me to be read. However, as it boasts 656 pages, I definitely need to find the right time with the most amount of time in order to enjoy it properly.
Which book has a contemporary setting you would love to go to?
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab. Ever since I finished reading City of Ghosts I’ve been contemplating planning a trip back to the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. I loved the city, rich in history, and felt that my previous trip just wasn’t sufficient in regards to experiencing it all.
Which book has a fantasy/fictional setting you would love to go to?
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Whether it be buying school supplies in Diagon Alley, or studying magic at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry, or grabbing a bit of butterbeer with friends in Hogsmede, the pages of Harry Potter will always be the places in which I want to visit the most.
What book or book edition would you do anything to get our hands on?
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Deluxe Illustrated Slipcase Edition by J.K. Rowling. Owning any of the deluxe illustrated editions would be a dream for a Harry Potter fan such as myself and yet because Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite it is on the top of my list. Of course, the one thing stopping me is the rather hefty price tag of $180 CAD.
Name a character who is very adventurous and daring.
Celaena Sardothien from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Originally a character who was very adventurous and daring just because she could be, Celaena has become more particular as to what danger she finds herself in as the series has grown. Once an assassin, Celaena is now adventurous and daring only if it means protecting Rowan, her friends, and her people from danger.
Name the craziest or weirdest place you’ve ever read a book.
I’m pretty mundane when it comes to reading locations, on a couch, chair, bed, etcetera. But, if I had to really think about it given I have a poor memory, I’m fairly certain I’ve brought a book into a pub and read it before. Does that count?
