Top Ten Settings I'd Like to See More Of

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

Although books are filled with amazing worlds, there are some that I wouldn't want to actually be (or see more of).  For instance, the Nevernever from Julia Kagawa's Iron Fey series is quite dangerous.  Any dystopian world from books like The Hunger Games, Blood Red Road, Divergent, Wither, and Insurgent are not places that I particularly care to learn more of, if you know what I mean. In this category would also fall some fantasy worlds, like the one from Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and other paranormal worlds filled with vampires, werewolves and the like.  Anyway, here's my list :) 

1.  Paris - I went to Paris many years ago, but I went with a tour. You know, the one that stops at the Louvre and Versailles and the important touristy spots.  However, we had one free day to do whatever we wanted, that day we went on the metro, to the Eiffel Tower, eat crepes... I loved that day.  Anyway, I love the Paris in Anna and the French Kiss and Die for Me and I would love to see more.  

2.  The Beach - I know there is a ton of summer reads about the beach and I really enjoy them.  My favorites are Jenny Han's Summer series and Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen.

3.  Joya d'Arena - This is the setting of the Girl of Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson which I'm a big fan off, I love how diverse it is. 

4.  Hogwarts - No explanation needed, right? 

5.  Abalon - This is the setting of the Wings series by Aprilynne Pike, this fairy world seems like the safest one to visit (others are quite dangerous!)

6.  Regency England - I love historical romances and I would love to see England back then (or around Austen's time).  Favorites are Edenbrooke and the Bridgerton's series by Julia Quinn.

7.  The World of Leviathan - This is not a real world, but Europe as imagined by Scott Westerfeld in his steampunk Leviathan series. What I wouldn't do to seen the message lizards, the walkers, and Bovril.  

8.  New York City - I've been to New York before, but I always feel like I don't get to know it as it's portrait in so many awesome books, like Dash & Lily's Book of Dares or the Blue Blood series by Melissa de la Cruz.

9.  Olympus - It doesn't matter what book about Greek mythology I read, Olympus looks like a great place to explore. Favorites are the Goddess Test series by Aimée Carter and the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. 

That's it, I can't think of any more.  What's in your Top Ten this week?


  1. Agree with you there on NYC. Awesome list! :D

  2. Paris is on my list too. :) I forgot about Regency England - I love to read books set there! Have a great week. :)

  3. I'm with you on NYC and Paris. I've never been to Paris, but all the books I've read that are set there amaze me, so I'm good with that. Maybe London, too ... I've been there once and would love to read some books centered there.

  4. Leviathan is on my to read list, and I may get to it this year...:D
    The beach was on my list as well, but I encompased both the beach and the ocean in it.

    Nice list!

  5. Good list! I really wish JK would come out with more books set at Hogwarts, even if they aren't about Harry (how great would a marauders' series be?)

    My Top 10

  6. Regency England would be great! I'll have to check out the suggestions that you've listed. And I'd love for more books set in Hogwarts - I don't care who they're about so long as they're set in The Wizarding World!
