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!

Harry Potter is always on the top of all my lists too!
It is crazy that is works for every topic!
I totally agree with Hogwarts, Narnia and the chocolate factory!! Now I wanna read Narnia again lol
Me too! It has been ages since I read it!
the emerald city would be so cool to visit!!! 🙂 great list, makes me want to read some of the books haha!
The settings of these books are amazing. Such great world building and imagery!
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!
Yes that is for sure!! Would not want to come face to face with her!
I love your choices! I thought about adding Red London, and I definitely should have considered Avonlea!
Thank you! I have seen some people putting all of the London’s on their lists as well. Makes me want to finish the series!
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!
Hahaha I could see why he creeps you out! The Slytherin Common Room is a great pick!
OMG THESE ARE ALL AMAZING CHOICES wow all my favorite settings on here i love it
Thank you Emma!
Great choices. I think I would love to visit Narnia but Wonderland made my list of places I DON’T want to visit because Alice would drive me NUTS!
Haha Wonderland without Alice would be great!
I think we can expect Hogwarts on almost everyone’s TTT this week 🙂 I know it’s definitely in my list!
That is for sure!
Red London was on my list too! I think it would be so amazing!
I would love to visit the Night Market!
Harry Potter – ‘ALWAYS’ on everyone’s list…
Wonderland would be an amazing place to visit. And Avonlea is simply a dream destination along with Green Gables.
So true. Both places are dreamy in their own way!
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!
That is so true! That would be awful!
You have got so many good ideas for your list this week! 🙂 I would like to visit a few of these!
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.
I could totally live forever in Narnia! Oompa Loompas weren’t my favourite things as a kid either!
I love all of these settings! Great list! Harry Potter/ Hogwarts is definitely my number one fictional destination.
Thank you! It is mine as well!
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 😂
Omg can you imagine diving in to the chocolate river! What a dream come true!
Yes the teachers were sketchy! I did not think of that!
Yes to Red London! I’m coming!!!!
It would be so fun!
Great list! I would love to visit Narnia too! It really has a beautiful setting! 🙂
Thank you! Narnia is gorgeous!
I have to say I totally agree with you Kristin! Willy Wonka is one I totally forgot but love! And Narnia… all utopia places!! And I LOVE your wonderland pic!!
I love top 10 Tuesday… Here is my post if you’re interested in my choices <3 https://perspectiveofawriter.wordpress.com/2017/12/05/top-10-tuesday-bookish-settings-to-visit-as-a-tourist/
Thank you Dani! Can’t wait to see your choices!
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 🙂
Are there any books set on Mars that are not dystopian? I would like to read a book like that!
Hmm I don’t know.. I’d have to do some research on that but I’d like to read that too!
Visiting PEI is a huge dream of mine too! It would be so much fun to get to experience Wonderland and the Night Circus for a bit.
I would love to rent an RV one day and drive across Canada! I would have to visit PEI first of course!
So many cool places…hogwarts, the chocolate factory, and narnia, I’d love to go to all of them!!
Wouldn’t they all be amazing?
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!
Thank you Olivia. I was looking up pictures of PEI and it looks pretty close to how I imagined Avonlea!
I love chocolate, so I’m totally ready for a trip to the chocolate factory. Great list!
Hogwarts, The Night Circus and Red London were all on my list this week too!
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2017/12/05/top-ten-tuesday-136/
They are great choices!
Fantastic list!! I literally agree with every single one of them!! And yeah I have a sweet tooth too 😉 And of course I’d want to visit the Night Market!
Thank you! I actually had a dream about being at the Chocolate Factory last night!!
You’re welcome! hahaha that sounds like fun 😉
I love that you accompanied each place with a photo!! I didn’t even think of Avonlea or Wonderland. Definitely, fun places to visit.
I loved looking for the photos!
