A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is… Ten Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit
This week I picked five places I actually have a chance to go to. And I picked five that, unfortunately, are fictional, which means it will never happen. 😦 Let’s get to it!
1. Darkfever (Fever #1) by Karen Marie Moning – Dublin, Ireland. This is one of the top places I want to visit in my life. It looks like an amazing place to see!
2. Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta – Sydney, Australia. I am dying to visit Australia! But just thinking about the 22 hour flight makes me sick. Why isn’t teleportation real yet?
3. The Diviners (The Diviners #1) by Libba Bray – New York City, New York. I’ve actually been to NYC, but I was like 12 so I don’t remember much. But what I love about the setting in this series isn’t that it’s set in NYC but in the 1920s.
4. Infini (Aerial Ethereal #2) by Krista & Becca Ritchie – Las Vegas, Nevada. The way this book describes the shows in Vegas makes it sound so magical!
5. Roman Crazy (Broads Abroad #1) by Alice Clayton – Rome, Italy. Every since I saw the Lizzie McGuire movie when I was 8 I’ve wanted to visit Rome lol. I realize this might not be the best reason for wanting to visit but oh well.
6. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Harry Potter #1) by J.K. Rowling – Hogwarts. I know I’m not the only one who has been waiting and wishing for my letter to get here. And while I’ve been to the Universal Hogwarts multiple times, it’s obviously not the same as the real thing.
7. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie Bucket #1) by Roald Dahl – Willy Wonka’s factory. I’ve never actually read this book, but I would love to visit the factory! Everything is made of chocalate, I approve.
8. Seraphina (Seraphina #1) by Rachel Hartman – “mathematical dragons in an alternative-medieval world” I was there for it. This was filled with dragons, my favorite mythical creature. If you’re a fan of high fantasy book, you should check this out!
9. Jurassic Park (Jurassic Park #1) by Michael Crichton – Jurassic Park. Dinosaurs are real here, that’s all I need to know.
10. Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie – Neverland. Peter Pan is my all time favorite Disney story. If I could make any fictional place real, this would be my pick.
