Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Places mentioned in books which I’d like to visit
I adore the village of Sticklepond! I just want to run away and live there.
2. Extra Virgin
Liguria sounds heavenly, and I definitely hope to get there someday.
3. Harry Potter
I have a feeling Harry Potter is going to feature heavily on many of our lists this week… But I think we’re all just waiting for our owl at this point!
4. The Hobbit
Oh, The Shire… It just sounds so beautiful. I’d holiday there, for sure.
I love Sue Grafton’s Santa Teresa of the 1980s. I’ve heard it’s based on Santa Barbara, so maybe that’s where I need to go?
An alternative Victorian London with magic? Yes. Please. Fetch my zeppelin!
Bascom sounds absolutely magical. I love the whole idea of the Southern architecture, and the food with its magical qualities, the different families all with their own magical “thing”.
Ledwardine sounds so picturesque… I think I’d want to visit it in the early books though. Or the first book, when Lucy is still alive.
9. The Invisible Library series
A giant, magical library, connected to worlds filled with fae and dragons? Yes.
10. His Dark Materials trilogy
I love all the places in the His Dark Materials trilogy, but I’ve always been particularly taken by Cittigazze and Lyra’s Oxford.
Have you like to join me on a jaunt to any of these? Which other places would you particularly like to visit from books?
