Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. You don’t have to do all ten. Instead you can do three, five, fifteen, whatever you want. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
This week’s theme is Ten Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit. Every so often you read and a book and think, “Wow, I would love to go there!” Sometimes it is for a relaxing moment, other times for adventure, but either way I find myself longing to visit a setting. Here are some of my favorites.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (trilogy) – I would love to see the three London’s and travel between worlds. Studying the differences etc would be fascinating and potentially dangerous.
Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) by Laini Taylor – Now, I am not quite finished this this book but every bit of imagery thrown the reader’s way has gripped my imagination.
Golden Son by Pierce Brown – Holy cow. Epic space battles, drama, fights to the death? I’m in. Boy am I in. Out of my way folks, I have my battleship and I am coming in hot.
With these three I went with a general theme, historical fiction. Each story is an era of place from the past that I would love to visit. I believe I have made well known at this point that I have an undying love of Ancient Egypt hence the Michelle Moran pick. The other two are in or around the Victorian era which was a time of great change in Great Britain. It would be interesting to see that up close.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – My last pick this week is one of my all time favorite locals. This traveling, magical circus has held my interest for years and to be able to walk it’s paths, smell the scents coming from the food carts, and being able to experience the circus in general would be a dream come true. Such a captivating book.
