This is my first ever “Top 10 Tuesday…” post (courtesy of The Broke and the Bookish) so I have no idea if I’m doing it right haha. This seemed like such a fun post to join in on, mainly for the fact that I knew what my answers would be as soon as I saw the theme!
Being a huge lover of fantasy novels, I’ve always loved the crazy, fantastic and imaginative worlds that the authors dream up; I’ve spent many a childhood year imagining myself walking through the Hogwarts corridors or wandering through Wonderland!
So without further ado, here’s my top 10 bookish settings I’d love to visit!
I know, I know. The Age of Winter,under the rule of the White Queen, wasn’t exactly the best time for Narnia. But it just looks so beautiful in the snow! A true winter wonderland.
It’s just so magical and weird that it’s hard to find it anything but enduring!
Obviously Hogwarts had to feature on the list! Potentially one of the most beautiful book settings ever created, it completely made my imagination come alive as a child (and an adult too!)
#4 Hogsmeade (at Christmas!)
Another Harry Potter location but I couldn’t resist putting this one on the list. The perfect Christmas location!
One of the few ASOIAF locations that seem quite cute and picturesque!
Again with the snow! What is it about snow that just makes a location look 1000x more beautiful?
Rivendell has always been my favourite setting in Lord of the Rings! It just looks so lovely and welcoming and magical!
#8 The Burrow
I may have put too many Harry Potter locations on this list, but I just can’t help it! The thought of them all makes me feel so warm and cosy and none more so than the Burrow. I imagine it smelling like freshly baked bread and mince pies at Christmas.
#9 The Shire
I’m starting to notice a theme here with the bookish settings I’d love to visit… Similarly to The Burrow, The Shire just looks so cozy and warm and welcoming. I feel like you wouldn’t be lost for good food here!
#10 The Secret Garden
Another of my childhood dreams… Having my own secret door leading to my own secret garden where I could read and explore all day long would have been perfect!
(A few extra bookish settings that I would also love to visit: Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, The Emerald City in Oz, The Hundred Acre Wood, Treasure Island and Neverland)
Thanks for reading my first ever “Top 10 Tuesday…”. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a few more of these in the future!
