Blog Tag! What book would you live in?

I have been tagged by Mackenzie Evans to name 8 books I would like to live in for a week, and then tag 8 more people.  There are a lot of books I'd love to live in, so it'll be difficult narrowing it down to eight...  Note: I don't have them in order of importance or anything, just how I think of them :P

1. The Chronicles of Narnia.
I've always thought it would be fun to live there, to be friends with unicorns and horses that can talk, and serve the great and kind Aslan.  I'd love to meet Trumpkin, Jewel, Mr. Tumnus, and so many others - maybe even Prince Cor and Lady Aravis!  Oh the things I could do if I were in Narnia.

2. Dragons in our Midst and Oracles of Fire.
Right, dragons and people with dragon traits?  Prophets and Oracles ablaze with fire?  When do we leave?  =D  I'd especially like to meet Sapphira, Bonnie, and Dikaios...

3. The Myst Trilogy (The Book of Atrus, The Book of Ti'ana, The Book of D'ni)
This trilogy was based off of the series of Myst computer games and is such a fun series.  I'd love to live in the world of the D'ni, a people who have the special talent of creating books that, at a touch of the hand, can bring you to a different world full of wonders beyond imagining.  It would be great to see their superior craftmanship using a special material they themselves created that is virtually indestructible.  And being a near peaceful race it would be a joy to spend time with them.

4. Earth Light
Earth Light is a book written by Tracy Pierce, and is a world full of dragons, unicorns, pegasis, talking animals, friendly spiders, creatures that can shift between animal and a humanoid anthro-like form, and much much more - and they all serve the Lord Jesus Christ.  This was a fun read and it's a shame the book is out of print.

5. Redwall
I would love to visit Redwall Abbey and have a feast with the good creatures who live there.  They make such delicious foods, I'm always hungry when reading these books (not to mention I've actually made some of them before).  Although many of the plot lines are similar, I still enjoy each book as much as the others, for they are full of fun characters who stand up for what's right, and good always wins over evil.

6. The Neverending Story
This was my favorite movie as a child, and the book is pretty good, too.  Though, I kept wanting to strangle Bastian up until the end.  But I'd love to go to Fantasia and see Falkor and Artax, and meet the Gnomes, the Rock-Biter, and the Childlike Empress, and Atreyu and just about everyone else.  That would be so so awesome.

7. The Secret of Dragonhome
This book was written by my friend John Peel.  It's about a world where good dragons still exist, but they're being protected by a lonely king in secret because everyone else believes dragons to be evil and would kill them without a thought. There are people with special abilities called Talents, and they are hunted by those without these abilities, or kidnapped to be used on the front lines in war.  For the dragons alone, and the possibility of being one of the Talents, it would be neat to spend a week in this book, even if I didn't survive till the end of that week. 

8. Codebearers
The Codebearers series is SO fun!  I'd love to travel to the world beyond the veil and fight along with the Codebearers for the Author.  Meeting Hunter Brown would be pretty cool, too.
