Blog Hop | Follow Friday and Blog Hop

Book Blogger Hop

Welcome to Drying Ink, blog hoppers! I review an eclectic mix of fantasy and science fiction, with my favourite authors including Robin Hobb, Steven Erikson, and Patrick Rothfuss. I also include a number of articles and toplists. Comment and say hello!

"If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"
Certainly not an easy question! Although I love Erikson's world, I doubt I'd actually survive in it (what with all of those ascendants running around), and as for Martin... Well, let's not go there. I'd start jumping every time I heard The Rains of Castamere! So instead, I'm going to opt for either Chalion in Lois McMaster Bujold's books, or T'Telir from Brandon Sanderson's Warbreaker: who could turn down such an incredible city with a really rather intriguing magic system - Awakening?

What was your reply? Comment and say hello below! 


  1. I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

    Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected –

  2. Hopping through. I really want to read the Bujold books someday.

  3. Jacob, just hopping through. Great to see another science fiction/fantasy site up. I'm not familiar with Steven Erikson's work, but now I will have to check it out.

  4. great hop question! I recently read Edelman's Infoquake, and I remember thinking "great world, but I sure don't want to live in it!". . . so maybe China Mieville's Bas Lag universe? Still kinda scary, but oh so awesome!

  5. Hm, Bas Lag... Tempting, indeed awesome, but I don't think I'd ever really want to live on Armada. :P And as for anybody near that crisis energy engine...
