Thursday's Dirt Little Secret

Dirty Little Secret is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely ladies of Under the Covers. Get ready to discover the deep dark and dirty secrets of book bloggers everywhere. To play along, answer the question on your own blog or if you don't have one, answer in the comments! This week's question is...

If you could travel back in time, what era would you like to find yourself in and why?

I would love to live in France in the time of Louis XIV. I have always loved the gorgeous imagery you get when you read a novel set back then. The sumptuous gowns and beauty of Versailles. Of course hopefully I would be lucky enough to be a courtier at least or else I would be miserable, and there is always that issue with poor health care. I like to think I would end up a roguish femme musketeer as The Three Musketeers  by Alexander Dumas inspired me to dream about sword fighting, large feathered hats, and billowy linen shirts. I wouldn't want to be the damsel in distress, but the mysterious cloaked figure that ends up being a capable female in disguise. :-) *sigh* Kinda like Claire from Claymore, except without the half yoma part..

haha. France was never my thing I guess, though everything was so beautiful back then. I liked how you mentioned Claire. I wonder if they ever made more of that series. I really enjoyed the anime despite how gruesome it was.

Love that you went with kick ass instead of the dress wearing girl ;)
