Top Ten Tuesday – Books Set In a Place I’d Like to Visit

I love a good book I can fall into.
Sometimes I wish I could literally fall into a book and experience the lives of the characters. Here are ten books that are like that for me.
Do you have any books you’d like to dive right into?

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë book cover

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Gothic romance on the windswept moors? Yes please.

In reality, toxic relationship in a damp and drafty house, I realize, still would be interested in a visit.

Neon Gods (Dark Olympus #1) by Katee Robert book cover

Neon Gods (Dark Olympus #1) by Katee Robert

Glittering city on one side of the river, seemingly run-down city on the other. Not going to lie – I’d be drawn to the underworld.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen book cover

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Country estate with cute soldiers and rich men to interact with. Oh, you’re heartbroken – go stay with your cousins for a couple months. Feeling poorly – go tour the lake district.

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes book cover

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes

It’s 17th Century London, with color magic.

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1) by Gail Carriger book cover

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1) by Gail Carriger

Steampunk Victorian London with vampires and werewolves.

(SK Note: I only recommend the first book and number 5 – the middle three are a slog)

The Glasswright's Apprentice by Mindy Klasky book cover

Glasswrights Series by Mindy Klasky

Morenia is a kingdom with a caste-based society based on your trade/your guild. It’s a fun read, none the less.

Snowspelled (The Harwood Spellbook #1) by Stephanie Burgis book cover

Snowspelled (The Harwood Spellbook #1) by Stephanie Burgis

19th century Angland where men are the magical individuals and women run the government and politics. It would be interesting to experience at any rate.

SK Book Review - Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom

Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo

Ketterdam is clearly based on Amsterdam. Either way, it seems like an interesting place to visit.

Second Star to the Left by Megan Van Dyke book cover

Second Star to the Left by Megan Van Dyke

Neverland!

The Fairy Godmother (Five Hundred Kingdoms #1) by Mercedes Lackey book cover

The Fairy Godmother (Five Hundred Kingdoms #1) by Mercedes Lackey

The Five Hundred Kingdoms are home to our fairy tales come to life. I prefer this book to the others I’ve read in the series, but the location still seems like a nice place to visit – avoiding the evil wizards and creatures who wish harm upon everyone.

  1. I love the idea of escaping real life and retreating to a country estate in a beautiful, peaceful landscape to be waited on hand and foot. Sounds sooooo relaxing!

    Happy TTT!
