Welcome back, it’s Tuesday, which mean’s it’s also Top 10 Tuesdays, which is now hosted by Jana @ThatArtsyReaderGirl, make sure to check her blog out!
Anyways, here’s the list:
1. Frell | Ella Enchanted
I think of all the places I’d like to go is the Kingdom of Frell. I love Ella Enchanted so much and I think that Frell sounds like the perfect fantasy place to go where I’d be in the least amount of danger. There’s magic, but it’s mostly not directed at anyone in a dangerous way. Plus, I’d get to meet all kinds of magical races, including artistic gnomes!
2. Camelot | Arthurian Legend
I don’t have a particular book in mind for this, I’ve just always liked the idea of visiting Camelot. It’s been one of the focal points of my love of fantasy literature. I recognize that visiting Camelot can be a dangerous prospect (magic is kind of haywire, no matter which book you read about it!), but I love the idea of a medieval city built around a castle and the potential to see magic and/or dragons. Oh, and battles between knights!
3. The Shire | The Lord of the Rings
Who doesn’t want to hang out in the countryside with a bunch of hobbits?! I’ve always thought of the Shire as a quaint English countryside village atmosphere. I really want to go live in a house with a round door built into a hillside. I also feel like this is the least likely place for anything bad to happen in the LoTR universe.
4. Scotland | The Outlander Series
I’ve been to Scotland and I absolutely love it! I love the world of Outlander, too, though I wouldn’t relish being sent back that far in time! Though I know that the cold would probably get to me, I’d still love to go to Scotland and live there for a little bit. Not to mention visit all the cool places mentioned in the Outlander series.
5. Pemberly | Pride & Prejudice
Really, any of the places mentioned in Jane Austen’s books would be fun to visit, but Pemberly sounds like it would be so beautiful! I know the English country is green and vibrant, and I’m sure that Darcy’s mansion and surrounding lands would be amazing to visit (any fans of the Kiera Knightly version out there know what I’m talking about!).
6. Camp Half-Blood | Percy Jackson Series
I’ll admit that being a demi-god sounds pretty cool when you’re reading the Percy Jackson series. Camp Half-Blood seems like the summer camp experience I never really got, only even more awesome because it’s populated with the children of Greek Gods. I would totally just want to hang out with Annabeth.
7. Mr. Lemoncello’s Library | Mr. Lemoncello’s Library
I’m a total nerd, so obviously I’d want to hang out in library, even in the book world. I’d want to visit Mr. Lemoncello’s library because it’s full of futuristic exhibits and technologies. It would also be cool to participate in one of his break-out games, though I’m nowhere near as knowledgeable as the kids in the books!
8. The Reptile Room | A Series of Unfortunate Events
This is a rare instance of actually wanting to visit just a single place, in this case a room, in a world and want nothing to do with the rest. Anyone who has read A Series of Unfortunate Events knows that this world is super scary and depressing. But! I love reptiles, and Uncle Monty’s Reptile Room was the coolest place in the series, hands down. I’d hang out with the Incredibly Deadly Viper any day!
9. The Island | The Wild Robot
Though I have absolutely no outdoor survival skills, I’d really like to visit the island from The Wild Robot. I’d hope, in this scenario, that, like Roz, I’d be able to understand and talk to the other animals. It just feels like a really beautiful, peaceful place and I’d love to connect with the animals that live there.
10. The Grand Hotel | A Castle in the Clouds
I know I’m not the only one who loves books set in fancy, old hotels set in remote locations! This book is a lot of fun because the hotel sounds so cool! If I had the money, I’d definitely want to be one of those return-every-year patrons. I’ve never been to Switzerland, but it sounds very beautiful, if super, suuuper cold.
How about you?
