I was very interested by this week's topic at The Broke and The Bookish. They are asking what are the top ten settings we'd like to see more. I think I'd have an easier time answering the top ten settings I never want to see again. I've read some pretty sad, tragic, amazing, I-would-never-want-to-go-there books. Too much dystopian maybe?
In no particular order:
1. Narnia – I know it’s never going to happen, but I can wish, right?
2. Saskatchewan – Seriously. Richard Ford did a great job (in my opinion) at portraying life in rural Saskatchewan and I found it really interesting.
3. Montreal – I have always loved visiting Montreal, but I don’t know if I’ve ever read a book set there. Any recommendations?
4. The Universe of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – I know Eoin Coffer wrote a book continuing the series. I have that book, but I’m nervous about reading it since I loved Douglas Adams’ series so much.
5. Tropical Islands – Again, any recommendations? I read a lot of books set in cities and the country, but nothing on an island in recent memory.
6. An Office – Does nothing interesting ever happen in an office?
7. The North Pole – Just because. It would be different from anything I've read.
8. The Desert - See # 7.
9. Alternate Realities - I like the "What if?" question. What if some big, significant event didn't happen, how would that affect the world we live in now?
10. Hotel Rooms - Maybe this is because I just read 1408.
What settings would you like to see more? Anywhere you've never read about?
