Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Today we're thinking about book settings we'd love to visit - how fun!
But I wouldn't want to live there.
3. West Egg, 1920s
I like a good party, and 20s fashion.
4. 19th century Russia
I've been to Russia, but man it's different now!
5. Lyra's Oxford
I just want a daemon, to be honest.
6. The small English villages where Helen Simonson's books take place.
They're so cozy and filled with people I'd love to spend time with.
7. Manningsport, NY
From the Kristin Higgins Blue Heron series, and I don't just want to visit, I want to live there.
I know that's more than one place, but I can't remember which books take place in which settings, I just like the cold climates. Again, I wouldn't want to actually live there.
9. The far future world of The Power where women are in charge
I know it's still oppressive, but as a woman it would be a refreshing change
This was hard, because so many of the settings I read about - especially the ones that play such an important part in a story - tend to be either dystopias or set in wartime, and those are places I definitely don't want to ever go to.
