Top Ten Settings I’d Like to Visit More Through Books

Posted July 22, 2019 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 20 Comments

Sorry I’m late! I had kittens on me!

I love visiting new (or beloved) places through books, and this week’s topic allows me to share some of my favorites with you! I tend to gravitate towards books set in the following places/kinds of places, so if you have any recommendations for books you think I’d love based on my picks this week, please leave them in the comments below!

Creepy Hotels/Apartment Buildings (Like in Lock Every Door by Riley Sager)
Alaska (I love the scenery and the Northern Lights)
Ships/Yachts/Boats (Bonus points if people are visiting cool places.)
Outdoor/Wilderness (Camping, survival stories, etc.)
Secluded Resorts (Like the Snow Crystal Ski Resort in Sarah Morgan’s O’Neil Brothers series)
Venice, Italy (Really, any place in Italy.)
New York City (I SO heart New York, especially at Christmas.)
Castles (Like in Say Yes to the Marquess by Tessa Dare)
Any place with snow!! (I love cabins, fireplaces, Christmas, blizzards, etc.)
Cute, quaint, picturesque small towns (Like Kristan Higgins’s Gideon’s Cove)

Which settings do you love and would like to see more of?

  1. I love stories set on ships or boats. A yacht would be cool too, I think I’ve only read one or two books with yachts but they make for good thrillers/ mysteries!

  2. I’M FROM ALASKA! <3
    You should read Sweet Home Alaska by Carole Estby Dagg! It's a really cute and sweet middle grade about the pioneers that founded the valley I live in during the Great Depression. It's supposed to be like Little House on the Prairie but in Alaska. The main character loves those books and she follows instructions from Farmer Boy on growing giant pumpkins and she basically single-handedly starts the first library and it's just so adorable and makes my heart SO HAPPY. I just could relate to her so much and it was just so cool to read a historical fiction about how my town was founded because I don't see many books like that about up here. (At least not in MG or YA) But of course I'm very biased. XD
    Also recently I listened to the audiobook of Not if I Save You First by Ally Carter which was pretty good. I didn't like how it painted Alaska in kind of a negative light though, but I understand how it was important to the plot and character development. But again I'm obviously biased cuz I have so much pride for my state. XD It's not that the things they mentioned were untrue exactly, because it mostly was true, but I just felt like it was full of cliches and I just know anyone who reads it will think that's all the ENTIRE state is which is a little annoying to me. XD
