Top Ten Places Books Have Made Us Want To Visit


For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!

 

Daisy's Picks


1. HOGWARTS: Because seriously, who wouldn't? And a real place that's linked to it is The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park and The Harry Potter Studio Tour. It would just be epic to be able to wander through all the places that exist in my head and in the movies.

2. London: I did actually visit London a couple of years ago, but all the stories about the Tudors and all the historical romances I love very much made me want to visit this city. And it was awesome. I want to go back there!

3. Nantucket: I've read a couple of books in which the story takes place on this island and it sounds pretty magical, so it's on the WANT list.

Julia's Picks

4. London and England: I am stealing Daisy's answer, because London and pretty much the whole of England has been on my to do list for ages primarily because of awesome steampunk books and all those historical romance novels. I actually popped over for a quick visit this summer and one of the things I had to do was Hyde Park because of how often the leads in historicals take a strole through it. I took a bike.

5. Middle Earth: Oh, if only I could go there! I had a hardcore Tolkien phase in high school and I would have given just about anything to take a stroll through Middle Earth. I loved all things elves so Rivendell would have been my ideal destination. So to tie this to the real world, I'd love to go to New Zealand and visit all of that amazing scenery that was shone in those movies.

6. Russia: For some reason I have always been drawn to Russia. I don't know why that is, but I seek out Russian fictional literature and would love to go visit St. Petersburg or Moscow. I don't know if I will ever get the chance at least in the near future. So I will have to be content reading lots and lots of fiction.

Jamie's Picks


7. Italy: I've been to Italy before but Kristin Rae's Wish You Were Italian made me LONG to go back and also to explore an area I didn't go to. Great descriptions and she nailed the setting.

8. Space: I WANNA GO TO SPACE & These Broken Stars by Megan Spooner & Amie Kaufman made me want to make sure I do it in style...on a luxury spaceliner. I just can't even imagine that view.

9. Lucky Harbor: Lucky Harbor is a fictional place and is a romance series by Jill Shalvis but I SO WANT IT TO BE REAL. It's this fictional small town in Washington state and I don't know...the way she wrote it I just wanted to BE THERE.

10. Wyoming: I have a friend from college who always used to show me pics from her hometown in Wyoming and it looked gorgeous. Then I read Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series -- a kickass paranormal angel book -- and I just HAVE to go there.


Tell us the places books have made YOU want to visit!

  3. Hogwarts and Middle Earth - Yes! Space... no way too vast and daunting, plus I'd imagine the scenario from Across the Universe series :)

  7. HOGWARTS. I'm guessing it'll be on everyone's list. I've been to England/London and Russia/St Petersburg/Moscow, but would always love to go back. There's something so magical about a place with vast amounts of history. Americans don't have such archaic remnants to see everyday.

  13. Hogwarts, of course! Middle Earth, definitely. And space - yes, I could go for that. I'd also love to get back to England, Scotland, and Wales.

  14. Space? *shudders* You are braver than me. I have nightmares about being trapped in space. I'll settle for looking at it's beauty from here, thanks :)

  15. I agree with space! I just read #starshine by G.S. Jennsen and it was the best space book I've ever read. However, I can't agree with Wyoming. Well, there are some pretty epic places there, but for the most part, it's just really flat and high plains. My family owns a cabin outside of Jackson, and I grew up in Idaho, so I guess it's not as "exciting" unless you're by the mountains.

    Or like cowboys :)

  16. When I told my husband about my answers to this Top Ten Tuesday, he looked at me like I was crazy for putting Hogwarts as one of my options. He clearly needs to be replaced.

  20. I'm with Jamie. Wyoming is somewhere I'd love to see... but for the sexy cowboys. Western ranching life never held any appeal for me until I discovered Lorelei James' Blacktop Cowboys series which is now much beloved. Well -- that's not entirely true. As an 80s movie connoisseur, I can't forget about Urban Cowboy.

  21. my name is Marisa James,i am From GERMANY I never knew I could be happy again cause my life turned in a mess by my ex boy friend named James, cause the love I had for him was incomparable, I loved him with all my heart but he dumped me just because of any other girl, ever since then I have never been my self cause I love James and think of him every seconds of my life so I cant just let him go like that cause I think he is the love of my life, so I decided to go on research on net on how to get lost lover back. At hot mail blog that was how I saw a lady who testified the great things which Dr.AYO did for her after reading I was convinced to give a try to Dr. AYO to see if he can help me also. So that was how I contacted him greatayosolutiontemple@gmail.com and told him my problem. So when I told him my problem he just told me not to worry that I will have James back within 48hours, I was so surprised, I he call me and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened,. I was so surprised and was short of words cause I could not believe what I was hearing. So that was how James came to me and now we are living happily than ever before.
