Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is Bookish Worlds I’d Want To/ Never Want to Live In, but I've narrowed my list down to placed I'd want to live. Here we go, in no particular order:
The Wizarding World - Just anywhere, please. Maybe someday I'll get to go to the closed thing we have in Florida...
Red London, Arnes - If you've read the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab, you understand exactly what I mean. If I were visiting I'd also like to be an Antari so I could travel between worlds, but I'd still love to be free to explore more of Arnes and their world.
The Shire, Middle-Earth - Hobbits really know how to live and I'd love to visit one of their homes. Not to mention have a meal with them, or go to one of their parties!
Long Island, New York - Specifically, I'd like to see Camp Half-Blood from Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I'd love to see the Big House, the cabins, maybe take part in some of the activities while I'm at it.
Henrietta, Virginia - There are so many places I'd love to visit in and near this town where The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater is set from 300 Fox Way, The Barns, Monmouth Manufacturing, Aglionby Academy, to Cabeswater.
Night Vale - I'm not exactly sure if I'd like to live in this Twilight Zone-esque Southwestern town, but I'd at least like to visit if only to meet Cecil and see his radio studio - and maybe visit Khoshekh. Both the podcast and the novel adaptation are some of my favorites.
Corfu, Greece - I love the setting of Gerald Durrell's Corfu Trilogy (plus both the 2005 tv movie and the new series are pretty great too). The flora and the fauna sound beautiful in his memoirs.
Manhattan, New York - Particularly the NYC of The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Who wouldn't like to visit the New York Institute? (Either the book or tv adaptation version actually.)
Alexandria, Egypt - I mean, the Great Library of Alexandria still stands - of course, I'd want to live in the city where it's headquartered. As a librarian, I don't think I could resist
New Fiddleham, New England - This series is so much fun - think Sherlock Holmes meets Doctor Who - and Jackaby's small town and his house are practically inviting characters themselves.
What bookish worlds would you love to have to opportunity to visit or live? What ones would you rather stay away from? What are some books on your list this week? As usual, thanks for visiting my and perhaps even commenting down below!
