Oh, I have so many favorites on this subject! I have specific favorites from specific books, and then I have a general idea of a setting from many books! Here are ten of my many, many favorite book settings that I would love to visit!

The Wizarding World (from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling) – Can you imagine actually getting to attend Hogwarts or living your life in the magical world Rowling created? That would be a dream come true!

Narnia (from The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis) – I honestly think I would keel over from happiness if I stepped through a wardrobe and landed in Narnia. To be able to explore a world where I can talk to animals and to Aslan would be amazing!

Scotland (specifically from The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan) – I literally want to step into the pages of this book, steal Nina’s book-van and live her life in Scotland. Why is this not an option in life?

England (from so many books) – “You should read this book,” she said. “Oh, no thanks. It doesn’t seem like it’s for me,” I replied. “It’s set in England,” she told me. “Hand it over, son!” I yelled.

Cabot Cove, Maine (from the Murder, She Wrote series by Donald Bain) – Besides the fact that people keep dying off at that place, it seems quite peaceful!

Storyton Hall (from the Book Retreat Mystery series by Ellery Adams) – This place is literally designed with bookworms in mind. Multiple libraries, tons of nooks and crannies to read in, events tailored for bibliophiles. Can we make this a thing, please?

Ketterdam (from Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo) – Yes, it seems to be a bit of a rough place, but I want to be a part of Kaz Brekker’s crew so, so bad!!!

Creepy, mythical places (from many books) – Give me a creepy, Edgar Allan Poe type setting and I will be the happiest reader on earth. I love when things are misty and grey and mysterious. Ohhh, it gives me the shivers just thinking about all the good stories!

The Shire (from The Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R. Tolkien) – Now, I didn’t include all of Middle Earth in this one simply because no one could pay me enough to travel to Mordor. I like creepy, but goodness that place is flat-out frightening!

Westeros (from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin) – Just as long as Joffrey isn’t reigning, then I would love to visit Westeros. Oh, also maybe if there weren’t white walkers threatening to invade. Also, it seems a bit dirty. Hmmm…maybe I should think this one through a bit more.
