Friday Memes 10/24

Book Blogger Hop

The Question:
You accidentally unleashed ghouls from a novel and they are now running amok. What fictional hero (book or film) would you like to help you defeat the ghouls?

My Answer:
My first thoughts were all television heroes due to the fact that I watch a lot of paranormal shows but don't really read paranormal books. So I was just going to go with one of them but since this is a book blog I wanted to have a book hero too, which had me scouring my shelves. For my book hero I ended up picking Luca Forelli from The River of Time Series (Shocker, I know) because not only is he a skilled fighter he's also funny, and in a situation like that I know I could use a little humor! As for TV I'd pick either the Tenth Doctor or Buffy Summers, I really don't think either of them need  an explanation!

My Thoughts
That first question really makes you think if you do stop to think about it. I've heard and been a part of several discussions on the matter and it is really hard to come down hard on either side of the matter!

That's a great opening. I'd keep reading to find out why she was contemplating that question. Had she lied about something or was she considering lying?

Aaah Buffy! How could I forget her? I created a whole female Ghost Buster squad and somehow forgot about Buffy... I'm a terrible person! You sound like you got those ghouls under control! I understand your hesitance to give an answer to the book's question because sometimes a white lie is a good thing! It sounds like it'll be an intriguing book! Thanks for sharing :) hope you have a great weekend!

I haven't heard of any of these characters/ghouls. :)

I am not a reader of scary things.

THANKS for sharing, and have a good weekend.

Happy Hopping!!

Sandra-It definitely piques your interest!

Juli-I'm still have a few episodes of Buffy left to watch so it's pretty easy to remember her when I've been watching lots of that show! The book was rather good!

Elizabeth-Me either but I don't mind watching it!

Billy-Haha I guess that's to be expected!

Nyze-Glad you liked it!
