Top Ten Tuesday

top ten tuesdayOctober 14: Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit (whether fictional or real)

1) The United Kingdom, England, London, Hogwarts – Harry Potter series, books by Jane Austen: Who doesn’t want to visit a land of magic, love, and tradition? Modern day or Georgian era, I’d be happy with either, as long as a Hogwarts tour happens.

2) New Orleans – The Dark Hunter series, Chronicles of Nick: A festive city with people and daemons and really hot guys who kill supernatural entities, yes please. Colorful place with great food, art, and history, sounds just up my alley.

3) Alagaesia – The Inheritance Cycle (Eragon): A land of dragons, elves, magic, and mayhem. It might not always be a ton of fun to be in that world but it will definitely be interesting.

4) Kaeleer – The Black Jewels Trilogy: While the books contain three realms (Terrielle and Hell are the other two), Kaeleer sounds like the most interesting (and safest). Not to mention it has unicorns and large cats who also possess badass magic.

5) Narnia – The Chronicles of Narnia: A lion who rules the world and talking animals fighting for it? Definitely a war that I could be a part of. Plus they have a shimmering ocean and magic that can be harnessed. Oh and learning to duel with a sword with centaurs? Awesome.

6) Montana and Oregon – Mercy Thompson series and Alpha and Omega series: Mountains, werewolves, and magic, that’s my kind of place. Montana is the refuge and Oregon is the place you run away to. Both have mountains and forests and men with protective instincts.

7) Ancient Greece – Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Gods, demi-gods, mythology. All these elements roll into one big party that could come crashing down any time. Friends and enemies at the same camp, and quests to make your toes curl.

8) Ireland – The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy: So this one is a bit of a “throwback” considering I’ve already been to Ireland but come one, that country is so fascinating. It has magic and myth everywhere and I would love to go back.

9) Erilea – Throne of Glass series: Swordfights, dead magic, and an evil king? Doesn’t sound like a fun place to be but the women wear dresses and the men are soldiers. I’d like to drop in for a spell.

10) The Seven Realms – The Seven Realms series: Definitely one of the most interesting realms I’ve ever discovered in a book. Chima combines “natives” with haughty locals and gives them a princess born a both, a thief to annoy her, and a kingdom falling apart. Take me there so I can attend school with all these people.
