Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Locals.

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week they ask us to share lists on the following:

 December 5: Ten Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit

I’m pretty sure we’ve done this topic before or at least one similar.  So this week’s list is simply going to be me scouring my Goodread’s read list looking for books set in locations I’d like to visit not necessarily books I loved the most.

Ten book location I’d like to visit.

  1. Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires, #1) Chicago: I’ve been to this city many times but I still haven’t done a Chicagoland Vampires tour of the city which is something I truly want to do.  Hmm.. Maybe during our December 2017 trip.
  2. Twilight (Twilight, #1) Washington State: This book and the next kind of go hand in hand as I would love to visit the Pacific NorthWest.
  3. Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1) Oregon State: See all the trees….  I love forests and the Pacific NW just sounds like a heavenly place to visit.
  4. Night Play (Dark-Hunter #5, Were-Hunter #1) New Orleans: So many vampire books are set here but the main reason I still want to visit this city is that my favorite series is set there.
  5. Bared to You (Crossfire, #1) New York:  I would love to visit this city but it intimidates me quite a bit.  I love how Chicago is set up like spokes on a wheel, it is easy for me to navigate.  New York and all its burrows just seem so confusing.
  6. Inferno (Robert Langdon, #4) Italy:  I almost had the opportunity to visit this country when I was in college but couldn’t find a way to afford it.  I would still like to visit someday and the husband and I are considering either a cruise or guided tour.
  7. The Rosie Project (Don Tillman, #1)  Australia:  I would also love to see Australia someday not necessarily because of this book, though.  This was definitely a case of hey I want to go here what books have I read that were set there.
  8. First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson, #1) New Mexico:  Arizona is out of the question in terms of visiting for our family as I don’t agree with some of the choices the state has made politically but New Mexico might be a good choice for a state to visit in the South West.  Kind of just grasping at straws here for the remaining of the list…
  9. Shadow of Night (All Souls Trilogy, #2) England, France, & Prague:  Not necessarily during the 1500’s like the book was set in but it would be fun to visit all these locations.
  10. Time for Yesterday (Star Trek: The Yesterday Saga, #2) USS Enterprise:  This is the fun or silly pick for this week’s list.  I’m such a huge Trekkie that of course, I would love to visit the Star Ship Enterprise.  Not sure which one, and I’d even be up for a visit on Voyager, but I would love it if it were possible to visit one of these ships and their crews.

Well, there you go, folks, my list for this week.  What bookish locations would you like to visit?  Leave a comment with either the local or a link to your own TTT list.

    • They don’t have tours per se, but I would like to visit many of the locations mentioned in the book. If you visit the website for Chicagoland Vampires series the author describes some of the properties and settings she used as inspiration for the books. I also was able to interview her for the release of the last book and she recommended some spots the characters liked to frequent.
