Top Ten Tuesday

TTT – Favorite Book Settings

Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.

There are so many great book settings to choose from, and some of the settings I like depend on the genre. However, there are some settings in which books take place that I always love. These include:

  1. Bookstores. Come on, who doesn’t like a story that takes place in a bookstore?
  2. Libraries. This is another one of my favorite settings, and there have been some great fantasy stories set in libraries.
  3. Seasides. These are usually either spooky or romantic, and either way, I’m here for it.
  4. Schools. As in dark academia, since I don’t seem to be able to pass up a fantasy set in a school.
  5. On vacation. When books are set in vacation spots, it makes me kind of feel like I’m on vacation with them.
  6. In the UK. I’ve always wanted to go to the UK, and I absolutely love reading books set there. It fulfills a tiny bit of my wanderlust.
  7. Snowy settings. There’s just something that draws my attention to a book set in the snow, and makes me want to curl up under a blanket with a mug of hot chocolate, tea, or coffee while reading. 
  8. Fantasy worlds. Learning the ins and outs of a new world is irresistible to me.
  9. Kingdoms. Since the likelihood of me getting into a royal court is slim to none, I always jump at the chance of reading a book set in the inner circle of a kingdom. 
  10. New York City. While I live near this location, I love reading books set here. I’m familiar with some of the sites, but books that are written like a love letter to NYC often teach me about new spots to visit in the city.

What are your favorite book settings?

  1. Yes to all of these! I especially love books set in New York City since I was finally able to visit a few years ago. It makes the the books come alive even more. ❤

    • Even though I’ve lived just outside of NYC for most of my life, there’s literally ALWAYS something new to discover. It’s such an awesome city to visit, I never get tired of it. I’m so glad that you got to visit it!
