I’ve I don’t really participate in this particular meme but today’s question from G at GReads! really made me a giggly girl so I thought I’d participate today!
Today’s question is: If you could gather up a handful of book blogger friends to spend a weekend away talking books, where would you go?
First off, I NEED A VACATION! Secondly, I think it would be kinda awesome to take a book blogger retreat! Most places I’ve seen today suggest the beach, or the mountains… but c’mon. Wouldn’t it be so much more fun to go somewhere fun? (not that the beach or mountains aren’t fun…)
I’m thinking if I wanted to plan a book blogger retreat, I’d pick some places that were literary relevant. Like pick a book and visit the setting (if real) or go to a place that inspired the book. Here are some random ideas of places that would be so much fun for a literary-themed book blogging retreat:
Really, did you think this WOULDN’T be a suggestion? For book bloggers who loved the Twilight series, this would be such a fun place to go for a retreat. We could pretend we were starting our first day at Forks High School, go down to the Indian reservation and the beach where Bella first learned about the vampires, we could find a rusty orange truck and a swoony, pale guy and re-enact the scene where Edward saves Bella. Don’t act like this wouldn’t be awesome!
Harry Potter World, Orlando, FL
The ULTIMATE literary nerd retreat! I’d love to gather my fellow Harry Potter lovers and take a weekend trip to Harry Potter World, grab a butterbeer and talk about how great the books were!
Alice’s Tea Cup, NYC
I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before, but I have a slight obsession with Alice in Wonderland. A friend of mine who lives in New York mentioned Alice’s Tea Cup, a tea room that is Alice in Wonderland themed. After getting over my hyperventilating and demanding to know why we didn’t visit here when I visited her last year, I told her we would be having my 30th birthday party here AND would be dressing up as characters from the book. You’re all invited, BTW!
Maaaaaaybe this is a stretch for a book bloggers retreat, but I’m thinking it would be fun just the same! Especially if we’ve all read Anna and the French Kiss. I feel like I’ve already visited Paris after reading this book, but I would love to go to the same places Anna and St. Clair did. While we’re not talking about book blogging, we can all go see old movies, eat French goodies, find French boys to kiss (well, for us single ladies anyway!). It’ll be an awesome retreat!
So, all my bloggy friends, are you ready? Let’s go!
