Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish! And this week the theme is….. Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit!
I feel like I’ve travelled all over the world, throughout time and space and even to fantasy lands. Then I realise that actually I barely leave my room except to go to work. Books can take us anywhere.
There are a lot of places books have made me want to visit, some real, some fantasy. This is less of a top ten and more like a random Ten;
–Lord of the Rings? Uh yes please. I want to walk the Shire and visit the Elves and Dwarves. I would even like a trip into Mordor. I think this would be my number one place to live if I could live in a fictional world, its so gorgeous!
— Not sure about the set of the film, but Dauntless headquarters how I imagined it was like perrrrrfect. In fact the entire Chicago area, I loved the imagery I got reading those books. YAY. (Plus I just kinda wanna be cool and Dauntless.)
The Night Circus
— If you’ve read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern then you’ll know why this is in my top ten. Guys, if you haven’t read it just trust me, best circus ever. The smells the food, the layout the fancy clock at the entrance. Not to mention all the magical acts and wow just wow. WHY ISN’T IT REAL?!
— I realise I only live like a couple of hours from London on the train but I’ve never really visited properly. I’ve been down a couple of time but never looked round much, get in get out. Its too busy and everyones trushing about too much. But so many books centre in London and I’d love to go around and see all the landmarks (and bookshops).
City of Masks
— technically its like 16th century Venice. But I want to go and meet the characters of this book. I loved this book when I was younger (which actually wasn’t that long ago). Goodreads page here.
— this is a book by Michelle Paver, and they live in an ancent forest and they’re all so at one with nature. They live in their little Clans and respect the earth and animals and it’s just so great to read. Really would love to live there, without all the scary stuff going on!
So that’s my random Ten Places Books made me want to visit, what are yours? Would you visit any of my Ten? Which is your favourite? x x
