Q. If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be?

Well, I’ve recently caught up with The Vampire Diaries TV show. Yes, it has taken me this long. Why? I was worried it was just another Twilight. I couldn’t bring myself to do that. However, I was pleasantly surprised. It is basically everything I had hoped Twilight would be and more. I haven’t read the books yet, though I don’t doubt that the TV show is probably better (for me, at least).

So, I would have to say Elena Gilbert. She has a pretty tough life, sure, but she is so loved and I have had several dreams about Damon by now. Mmm…

Q. To-Be-Read’s:
How big is your pile? Which book keeps getting pushed down the stack, but you keep meaning to read it?

Have you ever seen my Goodreads ‘to read’ list? Basically, that. I know I’m nearing about 200 by now so there is a lot that keeps being pushed down the stack! I have picked up a lot of books in charity shops and such over the years so my bookshelf is a pretty mad place.

As for which books, I’m going to go with Wicked by Gregory Maguire which I bought from Borders (when we still had a Borders) about.. 5 years ago? And I keep meaning to read it because I love The Wizard of Oz movie, tried to read the book and the lack of advectives threw me off, and it looks so fantastic but I just end up not getting around to it. There is also The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, the last two Robin Hobb books in the Fool trilogy, Clash of Kings by George RR Martin, all of my Pratchetts, I really could go on for a while here.

Stick around because next week Discovering Steampunk starts at Once Upon A Time and it is going to be awesome! There will be giveaways, author interviews, book reviews and guest posts. See? Awesome!
