Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
Countries I’ve been to are England, Scotland and Thailand. But books have taken me to MANY more.
So here are some of the books that have led me to awesome places I’d love to visit one day. Some of them are…um, not real, but I’m going to put them here anyway.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling – the Wizarding World
Except maaaaybe not when Harry’s there. Seriously you have NO idea how much I want to go to Hogwarts. FUN FACT. You might know that my Twitter handle is @theloonytuney – the “loony” part is because of my fave character Luna, but the “tuney” part is because of Petunia…as in, Harry’s aunt. I feel so sorry for her, that she couldn’t go to Hogwarts. She’s my second favourite Harry Potter character 🙂
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – France
FRANCE. SERIOUSLY JUST FRANCE. I’m going with my grandparents next year for an early 18th (because I am the LUCKIEST person in the world) and I cannot wait. The food, the history, the buildings, the food….
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis – Narnia
Narnia sounds like the absolute coolest place ever. It’s got talking animals – I mean, come on, that’s awesome. Plus, you know…Aslan.
His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman – ALL the worlds
There are so many worlds in here, reached with the assistance of The Subtle Knife. Seriously, the world-building in this series is amazing and I’ll never get sick of talking about it. I seriously need to experience this worlds (and see my daemon! Wouldn’t that be cool?).
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll – Wonderland
I’d love to meet the Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts; the Mad Hatter and the March Hare and even the Gnat. Such a wonderful world of madness, is Wonderland.
Eragon by Christopher Paolini – Alagaesia
I don’t care that so many people hate this series – I really love it, and Alagaesia sounds like SUCH a cool place to visit. Ellesmera, mostly, where the Elves live.
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson – London
And a boarding school, no less. The Ripper murders here were so INTERESTING. Probably the wrong word, but I loved the setting of this novel.
The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl by Melissa Keil – Eden Valley
I’d love to visit Eden Valley. It seems like a lovely quiet place to visit, with friendly people and peacefulness.
Ingo by Helen Dunmore – Ingo
This is one of my childhood favourites – mermaids like you’ve never known them. I’d love to go underwater and see Ingo.
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green – Amsterdam
I SO NEED TO GO TO AMSTERDAM. It sounds amazing. The Anne Frank House and the canals and yep yep yep, seriously need to visit. Though I’ll probably start sobbing.
So in the end I chose more fictional places than real ones.
SUE ME. I want to go to these places, okay??
What about you?
