The Impossible Bucket List

          After my car wrecked I decided I needed a bucket list. . .

           Joking. But really, The Book Chewers are having their weekly link-up. And this week's prompt is the Impossible Bucket list. The best idea ever!

The Book Chewers
Prompt: It's been said that a reader lives a thousand lives, and it's true. We have an advantage over the rest of the population. We sit on our beds, crack open a book, and we're whisked away to far-off lands where we meet fascinating characters and go on the finest adventures words can write. But this comes with disadvantages. Real life disappoints us. Other people just want to go on a cruise or ride in a hot-air-balloon. We'll always be looking for something slightly more ... magical. A reader's bucket list is an impossible bucket list. What's on your impossible list?


1. Sail on the Trophy Chase along side Smith Delaney

2. Travel to Rivendell

3. Storm the Castle with Wesley, Fezzik, and Inigo Montoya

4. Join Robin Hood and trick the Sheriff of Nottingham

5. Watch Dustfinger play with fire

6. Throw knives with Tris and Four

  1. Ooh, I like this one. Particularly 15, 17, and 20. I'm always so happy when I meet someone who knows Emily. She's massively overlooked and underrated, in comparison to Anne.

    Thanks for linking up! =)

    1. Exactly! Emily is so much fun. I think I actually like her better than Anne most times. No matter what she does, she always puts all of herself into it.

  2. Good luck throwing knives with Tris and Four (I can see that probably going badly for you...let's hope Four is in a good mood, eh? ;P) JUST KIDDING. I'd like to meet the Cheshire Cat too! Awesome list!!

    1. Ha. :) I said 'throwing knives' not 'being a target.' I do know how to throw a knife. Now am I any good? Eh, there's not much to say on that. :P
      I like the Cheshire Cat. Whenever I see a thin slice of moon in the sky, I think of him. Or Treasure Planet. The Montressor Spaceport! Flying through the stars. Hm, something's missing on my bucket list.

  3. Great list! (Also, so glad to hear you're okay after your wreck! God was certainly watching out for you!)

    Now I want to tag along with you on your bucket list. *Grin*
