10 Difficult Would-You-Rather Questions for Readers

Today on the blog, we’re going to have a little fun. It’s time to make some difficult choices about hypothetical scenarios that will likely never happen. (And sometimes that’s a good thing.)

Let us know in the comments which way you’re leaning on these ten rounds. Then, feel free to share with your friends on social media and see what they’d say to all of these. I’m interested to hear the answers!

Would you rather go on a road trip to a top vacation spot with your favorite fictional character or go on a road trip to the setting of your favorite book?

Bonus if you tell us where you’re going!

Win a free home makeover to theme one room of your house after a favorite children’s book or win a year’s supply of a food mentioned in the last book you read?

Be sure to share what design or food you’d pick. (I’m choosing between a Hobbit-themed guest room and a year of Parisian croissants—so tricky!)

Would you rather forget the ending of every book shortly after reading it or not be able to re-read a book ever again?

We know, we know. Cruel.

Would you rather time travel to save all of the books from the Library of Alexandria before it burnt down or time travel to bring a cure to Jane Austen so she could live longer and write more books?

For the moment, we’re just skipping past difficulties like whether this would impact other things in the space-time continuum. We’ll save that for sci-fi authors.

Would you rather have a favorite book turned into a T.V. miniseries or have a favorite book used as the inspiration for a local restaurant?

No specification on whether either the miniseries or the restaurant is actually good. Use your imagination!

Would you rather be banned from all libraries for the rest of your life OR Be banned from all bookstores for the rest of your life?

Not sure how they’d do this, but I’m imagining Wanted posters of your face posted all over, Wild West style.

Would you rather find out the villain of the last thriller/fantasy novel you read is trying to kill you for some reason or learn that your favorite author is never writing more books.

Given that I wouldn’t last five seconds against my last villain, and also that my favorite author is deceased…this one is pretty easy for me.

Would you rather suddenly gain an ability/skill possessed by the main character from the last novel you read or suddenly have the job of the main character from the last novel you read?

Can’t wait to hear what you’d be choosing for this!

Would you rather own Belle’s library from Beauty and the Beast or have a cozy bookstore and coffee shop within walking distance of your house?

Hmm, the library wouldn’t really fit in with my home style, but I’d go broke if a bookstore was that close…

Would you rather have bookshelves that randomly re-sort all of your books in a different order every night or be forced to dog-ear the page to mark it every time you stop reading a book?

It feels like my bookshelves randomly re-sort anyway. 😊

All right, readers! Feel free to share a few of your favorite answers below.

  1. Ok, here we go

    1. Go on a road trip to a top vacation spot
    2. Win a free home makeover
    3. Never be able to re-read a book
    4. Time travel to bring a cure to Jane Austen
    5. Have a favorite book inspire a local restaurant
    6. Be banned from all book stores (libraries will get the same books hahaha)
    7. Learn my favorite author is no longer writing… I kinda like living and I don’t know if I’d be able to outsmart the last villain
    8. EXCEPT (in regards to above) when I answer this one because I’m currently reading The Paris Betrayal and if I could have the ability and skills of Ben Calix, I’d be able to take on the villain from question 7.
    9. I want a cozy bookstore and coffee shop near me
    10. Have bookshelves that randomly re-sort all of my books. I can’t undo a dog ear, but I undo my shelves

  2. 1. The setting–The Enchanted Forest from Patricia C Wrede’s Dealing With Dragons series would be a blast. And hopefully I wouldn’t die or be turned into a flower.
    2. A one-room makeover, probably inspired by Ronia the Robber’s Daughter. An old castle and cave in an enchanted wood!
    3. Forget the ending after reading–I love rereading books anyway, and this would make it even better!
    4. Realistically, I doubt I could read most (if any) of the books in the Library of Alexandria, so I will rescue Jane Austen instead, whose books I have read and liked.
    5. Book used as inspiration for a local restaurant! How cool would it be to have a Lord of the Rings restaurant!?
    6. Banned from bookstores, as 1. I can still use the library to read new books; 2. I can get people to buy me books for gifts; and 3. I can cheat by ordering online, under an alias if I must.
    7. If I chose the villain I’d be dead and it wouldn’t matter if my favorite author was still writing or not (as I also just read The Paris Betrayal by James Hannibal), so I guess we go with my favorite author never writing a new book again.
    8. Absolutely gain and ability/skill from the last book I read. Especially if it changed every time I read a book. At present that would probably be swimming along the bottom of a frozen lake without panicking or dying (though it’s the wrong season for it).
    9. Own Belle’s library, because I’m a homebody, and then I wouldn’t have to go down the street.
    10. This is awful. I guess suffer through the re-sorting bookshelves, since that’s the sort of thing my husband might do to me anyway.

  3. 1. Go on a road trip to hope harbor.
    2. Win a years supply of charlies taco’s. Hmm, that does sound heavenly.
    3. Forget the ending of every book. I definitely would rather re-read a book, than remember the ending.
    4. Time travel to save the book from the library of Alexandria. I mean, can you imagine how much information is in there?
    5. Have my favorite book turned into a miniseries. (As long as they don’t leave out any details)
    6. Be banned from all bookstores for the rest of my life.
    7. Learn that my favorite author will never be writing new books again. This was a hard choice by the way.
    8. Suddenly gain an ability/skill possessed by the main character of the last novel I read, since I could use that to get myself a job anyway.
    9. Own belle’s library.
    10. Have bookshelves that randomly re-sort all of my books. I mean, they do it anyway.

  4. 1.Road trip setting.

    5.Mini series
