Q. It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?
Wow, for once the FF question didn't stump me--hands down I would pick the world of any of Sarah Addison Allen's books (Garden Spells, The Sugar Queen, The Girl Who Chased the Moon, The Peach Keeper). They all take place in the South (North Carolina, maybe?), in friendly small towns where magic is a part of life. But it's not like Harry Potter magic. It's more subtle. Like books that always turn up when you need them, and wallpaper that reflects your mood, and coffee choices that reveal your personality, and food that changes how you're feeling, and a sweet-sense that always lets you know when there's sugar nearby. It's magic that's a part of normal life--it's the magic of the everyday variety. And I love it so, so much. I would definitely pick that world to be real out of any others that I can think of.
