Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.
I love being transported to another world. It’s one of my favourite parts of reading. However, the downside is that once I finish the book, I have to accept the fact that I can’t just magically transport my physical body to these locations. If I had the chance, these are the 10 book settings I would love to visit.
1. Khorasan, The Wrath and the Dawn: I would visit this place after the events of the books when Khorasan has rebuilt itself. The vivid descriptions in this duology hit all 5 senses. I kept getting sucked into this world, it’s magic and culture and for that reason I would like to visit the location.
2. Red London, Shades of Magic Series: I will jump at any chance to possibly run into a certain black-eyed prince and his oh so charming brother. 😉 On top of that Red London just sounds so magical. The atmosphere of the world sounds so exciting and inviting and I’d love to wander around the Night Market.
3. Faelene, Storm Siren Trilogy: Another setting that completely captivated me with it’s magic. The terrain and just the general atmosphere of this location just draws me in.
4. Henrietta, Virginia/Cabeswater, The Raven Cycle: Magic seems to be my calling card for a lot of these locations. But who would be enticed by the wonder and mysteries that captures this town. On top of that I could get a reading from the ladies of 300 Fox Way and hike with some Raven Boys. 😉
5. Camp Half-Blood, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Who wouldn’t want the opportunity to stay at Camp-Half Blood. Talk about the ultimate adventure. You would never get bored here and the camaraderie between the campers sounds like so much fun.
6. Stony Bay, Connecticut, My Life Next Door: I love the vibe I got from this town. It sounds like a nice, peaceful yet adventurous place to visit. It helps that one of my favourite book boyfriends lives here and I’d love the opportunity to meet the Garretts.
7. Prague, Daughter of Smoke and Bone: A city of character, culture and history. Prague just keeps calling me. Laini Taylor did an amazing job at capturing the essence of this city and if given the chance I’d hop on the first flight I could get to this city.
8. Lewis Creek, Play On: What can I say, I have a thing for small towns. Lewis Creek reminds me a lot of my own town and there’s something charming about immersing yourself in a close community. Plus with baseball being such a hit, I’ll be able to actually watch a game and see what the fuss is all about.
9. Stanwich Connecticut, Since You’ve Been Gone: What is it about Connecticut? Seriously this is like the go-to state for a lot of my favourite contemporaries. I absolutely love the fact that all of the characters in Morgan Matsons book find their way to Stanwitch. I definitely see the appeal and I’d love to go to the orchard. On top of that the guys in this town seem pretty decent and there’s a good chance I’d meet some of my favourite characters.
10. Middle-Earth, The Lord of the Rings: The ultimate fantasy destination. From the Shire, to Rivendell, Rohan and Minas Tirith, there is an abundance of stunning places to visit and a lot of charming characters to meet.
Those are the book settings I’d love to visit.
If you could chose a setting to visit, where would you go?
