Top 10 Tuesday: Places Mentioned In Books That I’d Like to Visit 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Top 10 Tuesday Topic:  Places Mentioned In Books That I’d Like to Visit 

 

 

Mystic Bayou
How to Date Your Dragon by Molly Harper

I like to say that the small town in which How to Date Your Dragon takes place is like a supernatural Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girl. It’s if Stars Hollow was full of quirky mystical creatures instead of humans. And when I say mystical creatures, I mean all of them. Including dragon and alligator shifters, witches, and even unicorns.

 

The Bodleian Library
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

I have never wanted to visit the Bodleian more than when I read A Discovery of Witches. It made me want to become a historian so that my job was to work out of a library all day. Oh, and, one caveat – I’ll need it to be within the All Souls universe complete with vampires, daemons, and witches.

 

The Lair
With Visions of Red by Trisha Wolfe

What I wouldn’t give to go to Colton’s club and watch him do Shibari… seriously.

 

Caraval
Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Let me be clear here, I would not play, but I would definitely like to observe the games!

 

Joshua Templeman’s Couch
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne

If you’ve read The Hating Game, you know how glorious Sally Thorne makes Josh’s couch sound. What I wouldn’t give to sit on his couch, watching crappy medical dramas, while holding his hand. Just sayin’.

 

Emerald City Books
Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead

Am I allowed to go back to an exact place and time? Emerald City Books is essentially like a Barnes and Noble where the main character, Georgina Kincaid works. If I could, I’d go to that bookstore, drink her signature drink from the cafe (white chocolate mocha), and be there during Seth’s book signing.

 

I’m going to be complete trash for the last few and choose places all from the A Court of Thorns and Roses universe. (PS – this is super spoiler-y so proceed with caution.)

 

The Summer Court
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

While I wouldn’t want to stay there for an extended period of time because, as a Floridian, I feel like I live in a version of the Summer Court, the way it is described in this novel makes it sound so beautiful. I’d love to take a boat ride on the ocean and tour Tarquin’s home (and his treasures!).

 

The Spring Court
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

As much as Feyre suffers in The Spring Court, it’s hard to deny the fact that it still sounds beautiful – and that weather? Yes, please. I would love to go swimming in that starlight lake where Tamlin takes Feyre swimming.

 

The Court of Nightmares 
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

Ok, hear me out, I know The Court of Nightmares is full if hideous beings, but it also sounds like a really badass party – just sayin’. Also, what I wouldn’t give to take a bath in water that never gets cold, up in the mountains in Rhys’s house there.

 

Velaris
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

To anyone who has read ACOMAF… you know why. You. Know.

I want to visit every shop on The Rainbow, I want to see shows there and eat at all the delicious restaurants, I want to celebrate at the House of Wind on Starfall, I want to look at that beautiful night sky.
