TTT- Ten Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created over at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is about bookish settings that I would love to visit. I thought there would be so many but I really had to think about this one! I read a lot of contemporary and historical fiction so the settings are not that exciting! I noticed that a lot of the settings that I chose are from children’s books and that is probably because they are more whimsical and just plain fun!

Hogwarts (Harry Potter)

What a surprise! Somehow Harry Potter always finds a way on to my Top Ten Tuesday Lists but how could I not say Hogwarts for this week’s topic.  I think that the majority of us have had dreams about receiving our Hogwarts acceptance letters in the mail.  Everything about Hogwarts is magical and brilliant- I want to experience it all.

Red London (Shade of Magic)

I have only read the first book in the series so I am not sure what happens to Red London in the other books but I would love to go there! I took a ‘Which London Do You Belong In?’ and got Red London! I love the idea of visiting a city that looks like our London with an added touch of magic.  Who wouldn’t want to visit the Night Market?

Wonderland (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland)

Wonderland is so dreamy and whimsical. It is the kind of place that I couldn’t even dream up! I would want to experience everything that Wonderland has to offer. It is somewhere I would visit but probably not somewhere I would want to live!

Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)

I am a kid at heart and have a huge sweet tooth! Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory really is my idea of heaven. I want to eat it all!

Avonlea (Anne of Green Gables)

I would love to visit PEI one day! Even if Avonlea is a fictional place I am sure that much of PEI looks like what I imagine Avonlea to be.  There is an abundance of nature there and the way that L.M. Montgomery describes it makes a place I would love to visit.

Narnia (The Chronicles of Narnia)

I would love to experience Narnia.  There is so much to see and do there.  I would love to swim with the river nymphs and try all of the food! They obviously have the best Turkish delights…

The Night Circus (The Night Circus)

I have always been a fan of the circus and the magic element of The Night Circus greatly appeals to me. I would try all of the circus food (apparently food is a big factor in whether or not I would want to visit a place) and I would visit every single tent.  I am not sure that I would want to have my future told though!

The Emerald City (The Wizard of Oz)

It is just so beautiful and magical there! That said, the main draw for me would be the characters. I want the cowardly lion and the tinman to be my new best friends!

OASIS (Ready Player One)

I just love the whole idea of virtual reality! I would not want to live in it permanently but it would be a fun place to visit every once in awhile.  I have read a few books centered around virtual reality but it is OASIS that appeals to me the most.

Mars (Red Rising)

It would be so interesting to visit Mars- especially if humans lived and developed there.  I am not sure that the exact Mars in Red Rising appeals to me but I love the idea of it. It would be great if it weren’t for all the political strife.

I loved this week’s topic and I can not wait to read everyone’s TTTs! Would you want to visit the places that I talked about? Why or why not? I would love to know!

  1. Great list! Narnia and The Night Circus would be at the top of my lists, too! Definitely Narnia after the White Witch is defeated, though!

  2. Willy Wonka’s Factory creeps me out haha I love chocolate but I think I’ll go for a cake factory 😛 My Hogwarts choice of place was the Slytherin Common Room! I don’t know how I could forget adding Wonderland to my own list! Ahh!

  3. Hogwarts is always a great go-to place – but I wouldn’t want to visit if I were a Muggle. I’d probably find it too depressing being left out!

  4. Narnia is awesome, would love to go there. Probably wouldn’t want to leave. 🙂

    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is such a great choice, although as a kid I wasn’t too sure of those Oompa Loompas lol.

  5. How did I miss a chocolate factory from my list? Although I’d probably get in trouble for diving into the chocolate river.

    I’m not so sure about Hogwarts school. The meals sound pretty good but some of the teachers were a bit dodgy 😂

  6. I feel the same way about Red Rising Mars. Like Mars would be cool in general, especially if I somehow didn’t have to wear any type of suit. Red Rising Mars on the other hand seemed dangerous– but I guess that could be exciting! Great picks 🙂

  7. Yesss, I agree with you so much! Of course Hogwarts (that’s a given 😉 ), but also Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory and Avonlea. I’d like to go to Prince Edward’s Island someday, too. I wish Avonlea actually existed, but at least it is based very closely to truth. Great post!
