Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and involves making a lists about a certain topic. And who doesn’t like making lists, right?
Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit
Whenever I read a book, I always wish I could visit the place it’s set in so this is a perfect topic for me. My only problem is that there are two many options! What I did find was that most of the places on this list are, sadly, fictional. This is because a) I read a lot of fantasy, and b) most contemporary stuff is set in America and I’m not fussed about going there. Anyway, on with the list.
1. Prague – Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Right from the start of reading this book, I realised that I really wanted to visit Prague. It sounds amazing, and looks so so pretty!
2. Paris – Anna and the French Kiss
I’ve actually been to Paris a few times, but reading Anna brought back all the beauty of the city. I’d love to visit again and take it all in properly.
3. Italy – The Roman Mysteries
Again, I’ve been to Rome, Pompeii and Herculaneum but I would love to see more of Italy. Reading The Roman Mysteries when I was about ten really made me want to visit and that desire has never left me.
4. Victorian London – The Infernal Devices
And this is where my choices start getting a little more impossible. Obviously, the only way I’m going to visit Victorian London is if I end up meeting the Doctor and travelling in the TARDIS. (very unlikely). Still, I love the era and it sounds fascinating.
5. The Night Circus – The Night Circus
It’s such a beautiful book, and the way the circus is described just makes me want to be there.
6. Inkworld – Inkheart
The world of Inkheart has always fascinated me, mainly because it involves people going into books, and the series is just enchanting. Definitely a world I’d visit if it existed.
7. Middle Earth – Lord of the Rings
The world in these books is AMAZING! I want to go visit because it’s so beautiful. I guess I could always go to New Zealand instead.
8. Narnia – The Chronicles of Narnia
Who doesn’t want to go to Narnia? It’s awesome.
9. Camp Half-Blood – Percy Jackson and the Olympians
There was no way I could make list without this having just finished Blood of Olympus. Camp Half-Blood is such an amazing place in the books and I want to spend a summer there.
10. Hogwarts – Harry Potter
I feel like this is going to be on a lot of lists this week. Hogwarts feels like a home every time I go to reread one of the books, and I wish I could be part of that world sometimes.
