The Book Life Tag

The Book Life Tag

This is a post I saw on Izzy's new blog, The Reading Izzy, and I simply love the idea of it. Its practically a little bio of yourself if you were able to pick your own family and life from your favourite books.

 Although I wasn't tagged in it I decided I wanted to do it anyway. There were so many hard decision to make! I have too many favourite characters and fictional worlds I want to visit. If you had asked me these questions yesterday I probably would have given different answers, but anyway, here are what I was able to decide on.
Who would be your father?

Remus Lupin - the lovable teacher and father figure in the Harry Potter series was easily my first pick. He is smart, understanding, and kind. I love his loyalty, his strength, and his perseverance; the way he love with all his heart, the way he doesn't ever give up despite his condition, and the way he appreciates logical thought despite having magic at his disposal. I think he would be an amazing father.

Who would be your mother?

Charlotte Brantwell - this is the gorgeous, lovely, beautiful, amazing woman from the Infernal Devices series. Charlotte would an amazing mother. She is fiercely loyal and protective. She is smart and kickass. She doesn't have to go with the flow, she stands up for herself and what she believes in. She was a feminist icon!
Who would be your bookish brother?

Aubrey Fitzwilliam - this hilariously witty, handsome, genius protagonist from the Laws of Magic series would make a hell of a twin brother. He is one of the smartest characters I have ever read about, and definitely has the bets one-liners.  He is always getting into trouble and I can only imagine what sort of adventures we would get up to! I think he would  make a great brother - twin or older obviously, not younger!
Who would be your pet?
I am having a tough time deciding this one. I am stuck between Saphira the dragon from Eragon, Marley the dog from Marley & Me, Enzo from The Art of Racing in the Rain, and Hedwig, Harry Potter's owl. The more I think about it, Saphira doesn't really count as a "pet" in that sense. She is more of a best friend... just in dragon form! It would have to be either Marley, Enzo or Hedwig. I really cannot decide!

Where would you live?

Alagaesia - the world that Eragon and the rest of the Inheritance series is based in. This has to one of my absolute favourite fantasy worlds, if not my very favourite. I loved the landscape and the diversity of the land. There is everything from forests to dry-as-Satan's-tongue deserts, mountain ranges so tall they disappear into the heavens to the beautiful oceans. There are islands, hidden caves, and forests made of stone trees. There are little villages and big villages. Plains, lakes, and so much more. Its such a gorgeous place! I also love that it is inhabited by a lot of different species and there is magic there!
Where would you go to school?

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry - is there really any other place people would consider? I am not going to bother listing my reasons for choices this place. My list would be practically endless.

Who would be your significant other?

William Herondale or Cole St Clair - I love both of these characters for completely different reasons and wouldn't be able to choose. They both have their different perks but I love them equally. Is polygamy allowed in Alagesia? *chuckles*


Well, that's my fictional life. What's yours? Tell me below or leave you links. I won't tag anyone in particular since I wasn't tagged myself, but if you are reading this and want to do the post consider yourself tagged! I would love a link back if you do.
