Blog Tag! What book would you live in?

I have been tagged by araken to name 8 books I would like to live in for a week, and then tag 8 more people. This is a bit of a challenging one for me, since I really like my own world! lol! But here we go. :)

1. The Chronicles of Narnia.
Narnia has played such a huge role in my life. A production of the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe when I was 6 years old sparked my desire to do theatre, and helped my understand Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. I'd love to live in Narnia becuase it is a land filled with wonderful, good creatures living under the protection and love of Aslan. And he wouldn't want a talking beaver as a neighbor?

2. The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings
I've always wanted to live in the Shire. So nice and friendly with lovely green hills. And If I wanted to travel, lots of interesting places around Middle Earth, but then back home to the beautiful Shire. Wow, I really am a homebody, aren't I?

3. The Christy Miller Series.
This is probably a cheat, since this is basically the world I do live in. MY life has had so many elements and places from this series, it's incredibly funny. But I would also like to meet and hang with the characters. They are such Godly young people, I'd love to talk with them. :)

4. The Door Within
Fighting for truth and justice in a fantasy world with interesting places and people? Sign me up!

5. Anne of Green Gables
I've always thought it would be fun to live in Avonlea. The people are pleasant, and so is the culture. Beware of gossipy neighbors though. ;)

6. Lemony Snickett's Series of Unfortunate Events
Yes, this selection is asking for a strange morbid death if you live in this world. But it would just be so fun! Until you die in a unusual fashion that is.

7. Black Beauty
From my horse riding days, I had always wanted to be in this world where connections between horse and rider were so natural and almost surreal.

8. The Generation Series
This is not a published book series, yet, it's written by a friend of mine., I would like to spend a week in that world becuase it's set 20 years in the future, and highly resembles the way I believe America is headed. I'd want to spend time there to learn about how I should prepare for the hard times coming.

From the Beginning of Time... (LOST 6x9 "Ab Aeterno")

What's your worldview? Do you believe in God? Do you not? Which God? Are we products of chance or by design? The most important decision anyone can make in this life is what they believe. As storytellers, the most important decision we can also make for creating characters is deciding what they believe, because all their actions in life will derive from their ideals or faith.

A look at the mythological and belief driven episode of LOST, "Ab Aeterno", after the jump.

A Rose by any Other Name… (LOST 6x8 “Recon”)

…would have just as many thorns. Hello readers! I’ve found time to write again, (without having to detonate a nuclear bomb, thankfully!) and I’m catching up on my LOST analysis. A look at the different sides of Sawyer/James Ford in the two LOST realities after the jump!
