Hi guys! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! TTT was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was 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.
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is about the places you visit while reading books! That’s one of my favorite things about reading books, you are able to go to places where you may not otherwise. Here are my ten places that I’ve loved visiting thanks to books!
Japan from Rice, Noodle, Fish: Deep Travels Through Japan’s Food Culture by Matt Goulding.
I read this book several years ago and it took me a while to get through the whole thing because it made me HUNGRY! And I just want to travel to Japan one day, and this is one way I am able to.
London and beyond from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
I love this book and I love the world that is woven by Erin Morgenstern and the magic that is woven into London and the world of the circus. Every time I read this book I truly want to vanish into the pages of a book and visit Le Cirque des Rêves .
Roshar from The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson.
Okay, obviously this is a world where it’s very possible I would end up dead or oppressed, but I love this world and I want to explore this world where spren and people connect to achieve fantastic power. I also kind of love the fashion so I wouldn’t mind wearing the clothes either.
Pern from the The Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey.
I have always loved this series since I read the Harper Hall Trilogy back in middle school/early high school. As I continued reading, I continued to fall more and more in love with this planet full of dragons. So many dragons and I love it!
The world of Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones.
I love this magical world of Howl’s Moving Castle where magic is an everyday thing as well as being an elaborate set up as well. It’s a place where the every day can be magical as well. I love it!
The altered world in Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine.
This world is absolutely terrifying, but what I love most about it at the moment is that the Library of Alexandria was not destroyed in the great fire. It survived. It didn’t really do much good for the world, but I want to visit this huge wonderful library before it got destroyed.
The D&D world of Rat Queens by Kurtis J. Wiebe.
This world and watching/listening to Critical Role has made me want to learn how to play this game! I want to play D&D so badly!
The world of Araluen in Ranger’s Apprentice series by John Flanagan.
This is one of my favorite series that I started reading in high school and I love this world where you can be a real life ranger! I want to be in this world so badly!
Mossflower Woods from Redwall series by Brian Jacques.
I love this series as well just for how sweet and homey this series is. It’s a place where I can just return to when I need to read a nice fluffy read when I’m feeling down. Some of my favorite audiobooks are from the Redwall series.
Victorian England from the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger.
I love this series so so much! I love this world and I want to be Alexia’s friend so badly. Not only is she a badass woman who stands up to those that would seek to run her over, she is able to do a lot for herself.
