One Book to rule them all, One Book to find them, One Book to bring them all and in the darkness bind them, or something like that. Today I was intrigued by this tag that I found one on Enthralling Umbrella Books Blog and I knew I had to do it. If I was the ruler of books these would be my decrees.
What book would you make everyone read?
To kill a Mockingbird is a classic that I think everyone should read. This feels especially true now with the status of civil rights in our county.
What would you abolish in book construction?
Cover changes halfway through a series. I don’t care how bad the cover is. Can we just keep the same cover until all of the books are out?
What author would you commission to write you any book?
I think I would choose Tahereh Mafi. She has a talent that can take her from a dark YA novel to a fantastical middle grade. So, I know no matter what I wanted she could deliver.
What book would you demote to the library basement to make room for new books?
The heart is a Lonely Hunter. I had to read it for high school and I hated every moment of it. That may be because it was assigned reading. But, I was not happy.
What cover artist would you commission to make a mural?
I would have to choose the cover artist of the original covers for Harry Potter. How could would it be to have a complete HP mural done in that style?!
What characters face would you put on a coin?
Can we put the Darkling’s face on a coin. I think he would get a thrill from that idea.
What book would you award the “Ruler of Books” 2017 Prize to?
Eliza and Her Monsters was a book that really surprised me. I loved this book. It had wonderful characters, a intriguing plot line, and a beautiful writing style. You can check out my full review for it here.
