Top Ten Tuesday (68)

Top Ten Settings I Want to see More of
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Historical Russia
I find this setting fascinating, but have yet to find the book that pulls it off. Any suggestions?

2. France
Je veux voyager actuellment a la France, mais, pour maintenent, j'ai les livres. (I want to actually travel to France but, for now, I have books.)

3. Europe in general, actually.
Something a la 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson would be nice.

4. Japan
My brother went to Japan a few years back, and ever since I've found the culture really interesting.

5. Boarding School
One can never have too many boarding school books.

6. The Wizarding World
Hey, J.K. Rowling hasn't vetoed writing another HP book. A girl can dream, right?

7. *Amazing* fantasy worlds
I'm talking flawless, in depth world-building with unique twists and turns.

8. New York City
"New York, New York! It's a wonderful town."

9. Romantic Gothic settings
By that I mean, settings like that in Sarah Rees Brennan's Unspoken.

10. Ancient Greece
I've had a distinct lack of Greek mythology in my reading diet lately. This has to be amended!

What settings would you like to see more of?


  1. Love your list!! Wizarding World?! Uh, amazing! And I totally agree with Ancient Greece! Would love to see more of that! I'm a huge geek for fantasy worlds, too so I hands down want more of this as well. Also love boarding school and historical Russia! Just awesome. dGREAT list!!

  2. Awesome list! What period of historical Russia are you looking for re: a recommendation? I notice the trend right now is 19th century Russia; I mentioned in my list this week that I'd love to see a novel set in pre-19th century Russia--haven't quite found one yet =P

    Awesome list! Here's my 10 places for this week's TTT =)

  3. Greece, I should have thought of that.

    I love Russia as well. :) Russia, Europe, and Hogwarts made my list. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I would love to see more books in Europe & NYC! I just followed your blog via email! :) My TTT list: http://aliceinreaderland.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/settings/

  5. I totally agree with Europe in general, though it would be nice if the setting was more realistic and less idealised and exaggerated. Or maybe that's just me :)

    Oh, and btw, you've been nominated for the Liebster Award by me and Inx from

  6. Good list, I'd love to read more stories set in Japan, at boarding schools and amazing fantasy worlds.

  7. I'd love to read more books in a European setting. I have 13 Little Blue Envelopes on my tbr pile, but that's about it in terms of Europe (that isn't France or the UK.) Boarding school books are fantastic too, I love reading them.

  8. New Follower! Congrats on being nominated for the Liebster Award. :)

  9. I totally agree on 7. I want AMAZING fantasy worlds, not just rehashes. And I kinda put #9 if you think English Moors are a romantic gothic setting. :)

  10. oooh France and Greece (modern for me) sound like terrific settings. Japan sounds fantastic too. Great list!


Your comments brighten my day. :)
