Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

Hello there, all! Today I’m linking up with The Broke and The Bookish for their Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s prompt is,

Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

I’m really excited about this prompt, because books! And book’s settings, which is almost as good. So, without further ado, here is my list!

1. Narnia

…Seriously, who wouldn’t want to go to Narnia? Talking animals, living trees, beautiful enchanted places. I’d also love to go back to the beginning of Narnia, where if you threw a lamppost into the ground, it would grow a baby lamppost, and toffees make a toffee tree, and the air is buzzing with magic.

2. Middle Earth

Another classic bookish destination. Especially since I love the elves, I’d want to go to Rivendell, but most of all I’d love to visit Lothlorien.

3. Tronjheim

Here we’ve got a place from the Inheritance series. Not my favourite books, but the scenery was amazing, especially Tronjheim, the home of the dwarves, and Ellesmera, the elves’ capital city.

4. India

This one mostly comes from the book The Savage Fortress by Sarwat Chadda, which not only educated me on Indian mythology but inspired me to go there.

5. Hogwarts

A familiar name to just about everyone, the wizarding school would be ideal to go to, though I’m quite partial to Hogsmeade, too.

6. Ember

From a not-too-well-known series, beginning with The City of Ember. Ember is a city powered by electricity, deep underground.

7. Russia

I’ve always wanted to go to Russia, but even more so after reading The Wolf Princess. Gorgeous, snowy winter days!

8. Space

Especially the Pleiades and the Crab Nebula.

9. The School For Good and Evil

Though admittedly both schools sound somewhat repulsive, it would be fun to visit there at least.

10. Redwall

The place just sounds so nice and cosy, even if it is inhabited solely by mice, voles, etc.

Enjoy, and feel free to link up yourself!

Top Ten Tuesday

Hello, there! Today I’m linking up with The Broke and The Bookish to do my first ever Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s prompt is:

Top Ten Books People Have Been Telling You You Must Read.

Without further ado, here we go!

1. Insurgent by Veronica Roth. People say it’s very good, but I read Divergent and liked it, but hated the ending. I just didn’t like the way she ended the book. 

2. Allegiant by Veronica Roth. Basically I haven’t read it for the same reasons I haven’t read Insurgent. Also I accidentally read the major spoiler for the ending, so there’s not much point in reading it now.

3. The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens. My friend keeps telling me to read this. It’s a good book from what I’ve read, I just didn’t finish it. Hopefully I will this time around!

4. The Enchantress Returns by Chris Colfer. I read the first one, and now my other friend wants me to read this one! Maybe if I have time.

5. The Giver by Lois Lowry. One of my friends on Goodreads (Nevillegirl, if you were wondering) recommended this book to me, if not directly.

6. A World Without Princes by Soman Chainani. Does it count if I’ve been telling myself to read this one? I was simultaneously thrilled and disappointed with the first book, and I’m hoping this one will solely thrill me.

7. Ash Mistry and the City of Death by Sarwat Chadda. I’m sorry, I’m really not good at these. It’s just devolved into books I want to read. Oops. I read the first book in this series and really enjoyed it, and I’m hopeful the next book will be just as good.

8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I’m pretty sure Nevillegirl recommended this one to me, as well! It’ll be a while before I can read it, but it sounds interesting!

9. The Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien. My sister keeps bugging me to read this, and I’ve been working on it. It’s just so hard to get through!

10. The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien. Both my siblings want me to read this! I’ll get to it eventually, I suppose..
