Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Settings

There are so many great book settings to choose from, and some of the settings I like depend on the genre. However, there are some settings in which books take place that I always love. These include:

  1. Bookstores. Come on, who doesn’t like a story that takes place in a bookstore?
  2. Libraries. This is another one of my favorite settings, and there have been some great fantasy stories set in libraries.
  3. Seasides. These are usually either spooky or romantic, and either way, I’m here for it.
  4. Schools. As in dark academia, since I don’t seem to be able to pass up a fantasy set in a school.
  5. On vacation. When books are set in vacation spots, it makes me kind of feel like I’m on vacation with them.
  6. In the UK. I’ve always wanted to go to the UK, and I absolutely love reading books set there. It fulfills a tiny bit of my wanderlust.
  7. Snowy settings. There’s just something that draws my attention to a book set in the snow, and makes me want to curl up under a blanket with a mug of hot chocolate, tea, or coffee while reading. 
  8. Fantasy worlds. Learning the ins and outs of a new world is irresistible to me.
  9. Kingdoms. Since the likelihood of me getting into a royal court is slim to none, I always jump at the chance of reading a book set in the inner circle of a kingdom. 
  10. New York City. While I live near this location, I love reading books set here. I’m familiar with some of the sites, but books that are written like a love letter to NYC often teach me about new spots to visit in the city.
