Top Ten Tuesday – Book Settings

TTT #6

This weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week’s theme is book settings I’d like to visit.

 

Hogwarts – Harry Potter series
download (1)

Who wouldn’t want to visit Hogwarts?

 

 

 

 

Scotland – Outlander series
download (2)
I do hope to visit Scotland someday, but I bet it was even more beautiful in the 1700s.  I wouldn’t want to live then with all of the hardships, but maybe I’d consider staying if I lived with Jamie.

 

 

 

Space station Heimdall – Gemina

Would I want to live on a space station?  Probably not, but I would definitely want to visit for awhile, just not while maniacs are raging around with guns.  Click on the picture to go to the art credit.

 

 

 

 

Biltmore House – Serafina and the Black Cloak

I’ve visited the Biltmore House before, but I’d love to live there like Seraphina and have free run of the house!

 

 

 

The Archives – The Name of the Wind

I was so mad when Kvothe couldn’t access the Archives and when he finally makes it in I wish I could be there too!  Hidden rooms, mysterious doors, and so many books.  Click the picture to find where I found the fan art.

 

The Shire – Lord of the Rings series
download (3)
Like Hogwarts, who wouldn’t want to visit this place?  Click the picture for credit.

 

Rivendell – Lord of the Rings
download

If I lived in Middle Earth I would be an elf and I’d live in Rivendell.

 

 

 
Wolverine River Alaska – To the Bright Edge of the World

I hope to visit here someday as well.  The descriptions in the book pulled me in and made me want to visit so badly.  Click the picture for credit.

 
The island – Island of the Blue Dolphins

Apparently the book was based on a true story and the real island of San Nicolas.  I was fascinated by this book when I was young and while I wouldn’t want to be stranded there alone, I would love to visit the island and see what Karana saw.

 

 

Pern – Dragonriders of Pern series

This isn’t one of my favorite series, but I was intrigued by the world when I read these and always imagined myself living there.  Click the picture for art credit.

 

 

Where would you like to visit?  If you have a TTT link, leave it in the comments!

  1. Definitely the shire and Rivendell- those would be at the top of my Middle earth itinerary. Pern is a great pick too! Space station Heimdall as well- loved that book.

    Funny about Island of the Blue Dolphins- I wanted to read that as a kid and never did, but it always sounded good. Cool that it’s based on a true story.

    1. You should read Island of the Blue Dolphins now! I keep meaning to re-read it as an adult but haven’t. I wonder if it will hold the same appeal now.

    1. I’ve been to Biltmore twice, but not for the holidays. It’s my goal to go one year to see it all decorated. I keep hinting to my husband that it would be a great present for my late November birthday. 😛
