Hi! Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday @thatartsyreadergirl. This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana will post a prompt, and we readers will write our list. We also have the option to do our own thing. This week, our topic is favorite bookish locations. As you can see, I went to places I want to visit, places I enjoy, or fantasy locations I enjoy. Enjoy!
1- New York City
I’ve read several books set in New York City and I love how the authors use the city to tell the story.
I’ve read A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey and One Day in December by Josie Silver. I loved seeing London through the eyes of the characters.
I’ve never been to Paris, but I want to go. I’ve read Enchantée (All that Glitters is the new title) by Gita Trelease and Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. I loved seeing and exploring Paris in these books.
4- The Night Court from A Court of Thorns and Roses series
While there are other courts in this series, I would want to visit this one. I just love the mood of this court and the characters that live there.
5- The Night Circus from The Night Circus
I feel like everyone who has read this book will put this location on their list. I loved the description of the circus and I would want to visit it.
I’ve never been to Miami, but I want to visit it. A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow also had Miami as a location and I just loved it. I’ve also read books by Chanel Cleeton set in Miami for some parts of the novel.
This is where the Chanel Cleeton books come into play more. I’ve never been, but I loved this setting and to want to visit it one day.
8- New Jersey
I’m from here, I grew up here, and I still live here. While it might not be as close to New York City as I would like, I still love my state. My favorite books set in New Jersey are The Chance to Fly by Ali Stroker and Stacy Davidowitz and Love In English by Maria E. Andreu.
9- Ravka from The Grisha Verse
I loved the setting of Ravka in The Grisha Verse. I would want to visit that country and then some of the smaller locations throughout the series.
10- Camp Half-Blood
I really love the Percy Jackson series and I would love to visit Camp Half-Blood.
