Top Ten Tuesday- Jan. 22

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they will post a topic and then participants will make their top ten according to the topic. Feel free to go to their site and join in.

Top Ten Settings I'd Like to See More Of
  1. Fantasy Worlds: I just love a good fantasy world. I'm especially thinking of this now as I'm reading poison study, reminding me of how much I love medieval-fantasy worlds. 
  2. The United Kingdom: Because I've always wanted to go to the UK and you can never have enough books set there. X) 
  3. Anywhere cold and wintery: I love adventure novels or any novel really set in a really cold climate. Because I love snow. And winter (no, I'm not crazy).
  4. Another Realm: I really like books that have 'realms' of sorts. Almost like an alternate reality or dimension that connects to our world. Often involving portals. 
  5. Paris or London: I've never been to either of these places but they're at the top of my list of places I want to go. I read Wish You Were Eyre, which gave me a taste of Paris. For London, I know I've already said the UK, but this is a more specific place that has a lot of history that I would love to live through a book. 
  6. Jungles: I would love to see some more books that take place in a rainforest or jungle landscape. I can't think of any books off the top of my head but I feel like I've read one. 
  7. Ocean: Whether it's literally an underwater society, or just set on the beach, I LOVE books that take place near water. One of my all-time favourites is the Ingo series by Helen Dunmore. 
  8. Villages: I love olden-dayish kind of places where there is a bunch of little stores and such. Some good examples are Plain Kate and the Magyk series that I enjoyed when I was younger. I really like it when the village is a woodland or village in a meadow. That's always fun.
  9. The Sky: So, I've read one book that took place in a spaceship, though I'm not going to answer what book because that would kind of be spoiling it, and it was quite enjoyable, however, I think it would be really cool if there was a society in the sky, not space. Hey, there are books underground and underwater, why not above land and water?
  10. Hogwarts: Oh c'mon. You knew this was coming... J.K. Rowling MUST write some backstories or stories about Harry's parents or kids!!! Or even just from another angle, like Draco's son. I actually am really desperate. 
What are your top ten? Go to the Broke and the Bookish to find out how to join. :)

  2. Yes we do need more Hogwarts! And I love your sky idea. That is really quite interesting and I wonder why often skip over the sky and go straight to space. Here's my list

  4. You really can not have too many books set in the UK. Well for Paris either for that matter. I hadn't thought about jungles, but I am intrigued at the idea.

  5. If you love snow, you should move to CNY - particularly Syracuse, or the Tug Hill reason. We get tons of snow!
