Top Ten Tuesday: Book Settings I Would Love to Visit

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly book blog meme hosted by the lovely girls over at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's Top Ten Tuesday theme is: "bookish settings we'd love to visit."
Alright, so for this one I'm leaning heavily on the "visit" part. People usually always ask, "what book setting would you want to live in?" and usually that answer is really hard to come up with because so many fantasy/etc. stories have worlds that I'm just not so sure I'd like to live in. With "visit," I can just go, get  glimpse, and leave, so it opens up the door to so many more options! (Also, just a note: I think it's already established that I would love to live in Middle Earth and visit Hogwarts, so I'm not including those in this list.) 


Who wouldn't want to spend a day or two in this crazy, wonderful, insane land? But... probably only a day or two.
Heartless: Review

Shades of Grey
I would love to visit this weird somewhat-dystopian colorless world. Each person has a unique color perception that lets them see a certain amount of color. I will not, under any circumstance, give up my return ticket, though. I have learned from the mistakes of those made in this book. 

A Face Like Glass
This underground world of people wearing masks would be a very magical place to visit. I definitely don't think it's somewhere that I would want to stay, but until then

I love this world and think it'd be so interesting to see how the magic and the land are in person. It might be too cold for me, though.
Crooked Kingdom: Review

from Peter Pan by J.M. Barry
A world where you never have to grow up... it might be nice to not have any adult responsibilities for a while.

The Land of Stories
The Wishing Spell (The Land of Stories, #1)Image result for he land of stories map
This land has all the classic fairy tales in one huge world and I just think it'd be amazing to explore. 

Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)
I would love to see this mysterious, somewhat magical city with my own eyes. Everything in this book is described with such detail and beauty that it makes me so intrigued. 

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (Fairyland, #1)
I would have no idea what to expect from a visit to Fairyland, but I know it would be one exciting adventures. 

Anywhere in the Cosmere
The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive, #1)
This world is insane, and I have nothing much else to say. 

Red/Grey/White/(Maybe Black?) London
A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)
from the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab
All the different London would be so weird and exciting at the same time.

What book settings would you love to visit?


  1. I totally forgot about Neverland but YOU'RE SO RIGHT! It is by far one of the best bookish settings ever imagined. Fantastic choice.

  2. Ooh The Land of Stories would be fun- so much variety- and Neverland is a great one. Would be awesome to explore. Narnia too, and yeah maybe Wonderland (but yes only briefly!)

  3. I included Red London and Ketterdam on my list this week! Great picks. :)

  4. I've yet to read Strange the Dreamer, but I'd love to visit Ravka and the four Londons too!
