Time Traveller's Book Tag

I was tagged by the Caro, at Just Another Bookish Blog to do this! Thank you so much!

I really do love the idea of time travel. Which is why I was super pumped to do this tag! 
(Anyone with me with the Harry Potter Time Turner?)

You can click on the covers at the bottom to read more about these books :)

1. What is your favourite time period to read about?

Hmm. That's a hard one. Maybe the Medieval-ish ages, because then there are tons of mythical creatures/magic/swords to make things exciting. Plus, in YA, you get a princess who gets to prove to the world that she does NOT need saving :) Examples include Kiss of DeceptionEragonThe Girl of Fire and Thorns and many more.

2. Name a character from a classic novel and a character from a recent novel who would make great friends. Why?

I'm going to pick Scout from Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird and pair her up with Meira from Sara Raasch's Snow Like Ashes. Both are rebellious, and both hate being lady-like.

3. Which author now passed would you like to travel back in time to meet?

Lewis Carroll, C. S. Lewis, and William Shakespeare. Translation: I"m a sucker for Alice in Wonderland, Narnia, and Shakespeare.

5. Name a novel set in the present day, and imagine it set in another time period. What would that time period be, and how would it affect the story?

Can you image what it would be like if Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins was set a hundred years back? The plot would be very different. How would the Nephilim work in the old days, trying to get humans to sin? How would good-girl Anna do it? And seeing that they travel the world quite often on planes, how would that work? Answer: it wouldn't. Anna would have to be a lot more creative!

6. Which book's version of the future would you most want to live in?

Oh god. My mind is instantly going to every dystopian book I've ever read, in which Earth's future is not good. At all. The most peaceful dystopian world would have to be The Selection by Kiera Cass, because I wouldn't die as easily.

7. If you could time travel, which character would you most want to time travel with?

Probably Puck, from Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series. He's seen all, so he'd be the perfect tour guide. Plus it would be fun to play pranks in these time eras. And, if things got really bad, Puck could glamor us invisible :)

8. If you were stuck in a time-loop (aka Groundhog Day), which book would you not mind reading over and over?

Easy answer: The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa. I can read that book a million times, and still it will never get old.

9. What is your favourite book or series that has time-traveling as a key plot point?

Probably Ransom Rigg's Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series. Time loops, peculiar children with powers, secret organizations, it's all super cool. It's also becoming a movie, which I'm super excited to see!

10. If given the chance, would you a) time travel b) if so, when/where would you visit first c) what book/book series would you bring along with you?

I would totally time travel! My first stop probably would be to visit myself a few years ago. I would chuck a load of books at my past self and tell her to start reading them, because I'll have less time to read when I get older. This counts as answering the question, right?

11. Who do you tag?

I'm tagging:
1. Cody, from Literary-ly Obsessed
2. Anna, from Enchanted by YA
3. Carrie, from The Book Goddess


  1. Yay! Great answers! :D Oh the Selection would be a good future version to live in! Kind of an unfair system, but interesting all the same!
    Also, isn't Eragon great?! :D

    1. Eragon is fantastic! I mean, who wouldn't want to be a dragon rider and save the world? I would totally be one if I could!!!

  2. I totally agree with you about Alice in Wonderland! Thanks for tagging Erika! This tag is going to hard and so much fun!

    1. Haha, no problem! When in doubt, pass along a chance to exert your bookish nerdy-ness! :D

  3. Thank you so much for my nomination!!! This looks like soo much fun, I really do love the H-potz gif <3 I totally agree with your choices especially the Iron Queen, I feel that series is the answer to so many questions it's just THAT GOOD! Count me in that the Selection future with you, it would be amazing! Great Post :D

    1. Haha, yes! The Iron Queen is literally my textbook to life. I don't know what I would do without it! We would totally be future Selection buddies, no? :D

  4. This looks like a really fun tag, I can't wait to do it! Right now I'm picturing Sweet Evil in medieval times and I'd definitely want to read that book :D very true about the dystopians also, I would die very quickly in most if not all ahah. Love your answer to 10 by the way <3

    Most recent post on Enchanted by YA:

    1. Thank you! Sweet Evil in the medieval period would for sure be a really neat read. Just image all the plot changes!

  5. As a person who likes Alice in Wonderland you should read this book series, well unless you have..? The Looking Glass War Series by Frank Beddor! :D

    1. I haven't heard of it! But I just added it to my t0-be-read list, as it sounds quite good! Thanks for the suggestion, and thanks for dropping by! :)
