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’s so many places that I want to visit, and this week’s topic allows me to talk about all the books that are set in places that I want to travel to! Here’s some of the books that are set in locations I want to visit:
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland, and after reading this book, I wouldn’t mind meeting a Jamie of my own. Minus the life-threatening adventures, of course.
- The Wolf Den by Elodie Harper. Although I know it wouldn’t be the same as when it was an active city, I would love to visit Pompeii.
- Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. Mexico is another place I think would be amazing to visit.
- Once More with Chutzpah by Haley Neil. I’ve been to Israel before, but I’m always down for another trip.
- The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi. India is a country that has always been on a list of places I’ve wanted to visit.
- She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan. Although the book is set a long time ago, I think it would be amazing to visit China.
- These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong. Shanghai sounds like an amazing place to see as well.
- Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco. Who wouldn’t want to go to Italy? I know I do.
- Violeta by Isabel Allende. South America is another place I’ve always wanted to visit.
- The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith. This one is fictional, but who wouldn’t want to visit the libraries of Hell?
What are some books set in places you want to visit?
