  1. Jackaby has been a novel I've long since intended to read yet it remains on my shelf marked "unread." Still, someday I'll get to it.

    The Institute from the Shadowhutner would could indeed be fun to visit... only I'd just want a day trip, and preferable a day when there's no fighting going on. ;D

    Fun list, Lauren!

    1. The series is awesome! I'm putting off book four because I just don't want the series to end... I hope you'll love it when you get there!

  2. The Shire was on my short list. It was hard to decide, but I did cut it, though I would love to visit. I had Idris on my list, because the architecture sounds incredible.

  3. Ooo the Burrow! That would be interesting because the movie version was a lot different from how I imagined.

  4. We picked three of the same books to choose settings from (but different spots)! Awesome list. Here's mine if you want to check it out: https://clockworkbibliotheca.blogspot.com/2017/12/ten-bookish-settings-id-love-to-visit.html

  6. The Shire for sure! Minas Tirith as well- so many awesome Middle- earth locations. Valhalla sounds pretty good too.

  7. I somehow left Ketterdam off of my list which makes no sense whatsoever. The Shire is such a great pick for this list as well.

    1. I really had to cut a lot of places off myself- so many fictional places I'd love to visit!
