Not Enough Bookshelves: BTT – Other Worlds

BTT – Other Worlds

Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?

Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?

What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?

(This came to me when reviewing a Jonathan Carroll book – I’m not sure I’d like to live in the worlds of his books.)

Lately I seem to always answer these questions with the same book! If I could live in any world it would be Lyra’s world from Philip Pullman’s His Dark materials because I would love to know what my daemon looked like.


As for the story of my life I think I’d go for Sarah Dessen (not Philip Pullman – yeah!), even though I’ve only read one of her books it touched such a nerve I think I’d trust her to get me.

For more answers go here


  1. Ah, you’re an adventurous one!


  2. I haven’t read Pullman’s Dark materials, but my daughter is addicted to them. She’d probably live there too ;0)


  3. I’ve seen a few references to His Dark Materials so I’m really gonna have to give this series a read!
    Sarah Dessen seems a great choice – she has such a knack for conveying honest emotions with her words.


  4. Yeah, meeting your daemon would be interesting!


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour 😀
