These are my top ten favorite places to read about!I try to keep it as spoiler free as possible.
The world of Goblins, where nothing is as it seems. It's beautiful but treacherous, and one wrong step could cause your death.
9. The United States of America in The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
I love the thought of the gods living above, below, in, or around our landmarks. It's just cool.
The Maze is extremely imaginative. It's ever changing, evolving, and frustrating. The monsters that come out a night are terrifying, so you better be inside the walls when they close.
7. Indonesia in Sea by Heidi R. Kling
Post Tsunami Indonesia was amazing to read about. So much loss, so much pain. Yet there's still that glimmer of hope. I felt like I was really there, experiencing the extreme heat and rough living conditions.
6. The Beach House in The Summer I Turned Pretty
If I could count how many times I wished that I had a house by the beach...well, this just makes me want one more! Living by the beach, tracking sand in the house, having a bathing suit as your only uniform. Heaven.
The Theatre is unlike anything I've ever read about. The characters in the plays come to life to perform, it's truly amazing to imagine. I love thinking about the characters personalities off of the stage!
4. New York 1899 in The Luxe by Anna Godberson
Ah, the lives of the rich and famous. And the not so rich and famous. Godberson did an amazing job describing life in New York in 1899. The clothes, the society, everything screams decadence, propriety, and entitlement.
3. The Future in Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Come on, a future where everyone is pretty? With hoverboards, and a ton of other awesome futuristic stuff? Awesome! Well, except for that part that would be a spoiler if I told you.
The Arenas are really, really awesome. I have no idea how Suzanne Collins imagined half of the stuff she did, but it is all amazing. The one in Catching Fire is especially awesome.
1. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
The school that none of us would mind going to! Seriously, if I had classes like Potions and Defense Against the Dark Arts it would be a lot easier to get up in the morning! It just sounds awesome!
So there you have it, my top ten book settings. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another list.
