Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Settings I’d Like to Visit

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post curated by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s prompt is to name ten bookish settings you’d like to visit.

  1. Hogwarts (Harry Potter series)
    This is the most original answer you’ll find for this prompt. Just kidding. Who doesn’t want to go to Hogwarts?
  2. Hogsmeade (Harry Potter series)
    Reading about the trio’s wintry trips to Hogsmeade makes you want to spend Christmas there. In fact, I could go for a butterbeer and some magical shopping right now.
  3. Camp Half-Blood (Percy Jackson & the Olympians)
    I’m coming to understand why people compare the Percy Jackson books to Harry Potter, and the desire to attend Camp Half-Blood falls just slightly beneath the desire to attend Hogwarts. I suppose one could spend the school year at Hogwarts & do summer camp around a half-blood campfire. That’s definitely the dream.
  4. The Los Angeles Institute (The Dark Artifices)
    Apart from wanting to hang out with the Blackthorns, the LA Institute just seems fun. It’s right on the beach. The Shadowhunters actually use technology. There’s a Shadow Market nearby.
  5. Dorne (A Song of Ice and Fire)
    I cannot possibly exclude Westeros from this list, and Dorne seems like the place to vacation. Plus, I’ll have to attend a Dornish wine tasting.
  6. The Little Palace (The Grisha Trilogy)
    Let’s be honest, I just want to be a grisha. And maybe have lunch with Nikolai Lantsov.
  7. The London Institute (The Infernal Devices)
    In particular, I’d like to visit here in the late 1800s…maybe run into a Carstairs or a Herondale. You know how it is.
  8. Middle Earth (Lord of the Rings)
    There’s no way I can pick one specific place in Tolkien’s world, so let’s do it right and travel the whole thing.
  9. Casterly Rock (A Song of Ice and Fire)
    Can I truly be a Lannister if this isn’t on the list? I think not.
  10. London Below (Neverwhere)
    Okay, this is probably not a place I should want to go. But it’s so dark and disturbing, I feel like I need to add it.

That’s it! What are some of your favorite places from books? Let’s compare in the comments.
