Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
This week’s topic is: Top Ten Settings I’d Like To See More Of (Or At All)
I love books set in far off places that I’ve never been to. Reading books set in places often makes me want to visit. After reading twenty something Dark hunter books (by Sherrilyn Kenyon) I had the strongest desire to go to New Orleans.
I’ve taken to understand this list as settings that I loved reading about so much that I can’t wait to read more books set in those locations.
New York City (City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1))
New Orleans [or just any where in Louisiana] (Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles, #1), Immortals After Dark series)
Alaska (Naked Werewolf series)
Seattle (Georgina Kincaid series)…. the list of places in the US that I love to read about just goes on and on and on….
In fact I think I want to go to and read more about every single state. So I’ll just post this gorgeous map I found on Epic Reads
Paris, France (Anna and the French Kiss)
Prague, Czech Republic – I’m currently reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1) by Laini Taylor and love the Eastern European setting. It’s gorgeous. I’d love to read more books set in this corner of the world.
Spain – After reading a memoir last year about a young woman who ran away to Spain to learn Flamenco dancing (Only in Spain: In Search of My Heart’s Desire
by Nellie Bennett), I’d love to visit this country. And the next best thing to being there is reading more books set there.
Australia – I love books set in my home country. Most of what I read by Aussie authors is paranormal/fantasy set in a world different from here but I’d love to read more books set in my homeland. It’s a beautiful place.
United Kingdom – I’ve always loved books set here. From Jane Austen to Harry Potter, I love the setting and love to read books set in this beautiful corner of the world.
Fantasy worlds – I love the unique worlds that supernatural authors come up with. They’re all different and have their own quirks that set them apart. I know that I’m always going to want to read more books set in their own unique settings.
There is my list for this week. Perhaps less than ten (or more considering all the places in the US I want to read about) but given the chance I could go on all day so I think I’ll stop now 🙂
Thanks for reading.
Australia is on my list too, and every place on your list sounds so fun and interesting! 🙂
