Top Ten Tuesday (#62): Top ten places books have made me want to visit

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week’s topic is “Top ten places books have made me want to visit”.


Hogwarts – The most obvious choice, but who doesn’t want to visit Hogwarts?! (Well technically I guess I don’t, I want to live there, but visiting would be the next best thing!).

Middle Earth – I want to visit the Elves and meet the Hobbits!

Narnia – Talking animals? DONE.

Wonderland – The Wonderland of Splintered. I definitely wouldn’t want to stay, but I wouldn’t mind visiting the dark, beautiful world that Howard has made so real.

The Rain Wilds – Of all Robin Hobb’s settings, The Rain Wilds is the place I’d want to visit most.  It’s hard to say why without spoilers, but it sounds fascinating both historically and currently.

Westeros – Dangerous, absolutely, but also exciting.  I’d want to stand on The Wall, and try Dorne’s wines, to see Mammoths and direwolves, to explore the Red Keep and King’s Landing.

The OASIS – I’m only about a quarter of the way through Ready Player One at the moment but already The OASIS is fascinating and I know for a fact I’d be addicted to it. Maybe a good thing I can’t visit?!

Japan – A real world place! I find Japan fascinating and if there’s one book that cemented my desire to go it was Ink. Seeing Katie settle in to all the changes made me want to go even more.

South Africa – This has been on my list of dream places to visit for forever, and Lawrence Anthony’s work in The Elephant Whisperer just made that desire even stronger.


Where have books made you want to go?

  1. OHMYGOSH COME TO SOUTH AFRICA AND VISIT ME! You can totally crash by me!!!! Hah. Where I’ll be staying next year is only like a three hour drive to the Addo Elephant Park which is absolutely fantastic.

    I haven’t read Ink but I have been to Japan and adored it. It’s such a multi-faceted country, I can’t even. I tend to struggle a bit with Japanese lit for some reason 🙁 but I’m going to look up Ink nooooowwwwww.

  2. Hell yeah Hogwarts, Middle-Earth and Narnia! They definitely would have made my list too 😀 I haven’t read Splintered (yet!) but Wonderland would be sweet all the same – though I’m sure the Splintered one is something special 🙂 And I had issues with Ink BUT man did it ever make me want to visit Japan…even more so than I already did! Fantastic picks Faith ^^
