{Top Ten Tuesday} 10


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It was created because of their love of lists, and I myself love lists as well - so you will see it frequently popping up on MMSAI.

Everyone is welcome to join in, and don't worry if you can't think of 10 - just do as many as you can. And of course, be sure to link back to TBATB (and leave me a link here too!) on your post!

This Weeks Topic Is:
Top Ten Settings In A Book

All those real or imagined locations/worlds you loved reading about OR settings you think would be perfect in a book

as always, presented in no particular order and with apologies if our lists have common answers :0)


1) “Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts, Teach us something please” - oh sorry...I thought Hogwarts and the song just popped in my brain. I'd LOVE to be there.

2) Summerland from The Immortals series by Alyson Noel. It seems like a good escape place.

3) Shoot me now...but Forks, WA - then again, I've wanted to (without reason) live in Seattle since I was 5.

4) Widow's Vale - Sweep series by Cate Tiernan - Small town life is what I grew up in, but that place holds more mystery then my town did.

5) New York - Thanks Princess Diaries

6) Dystopian Chicago as told by Veronica Roth in Divergent - it would be cool and strange to see.

And some other places I think would be cool to be set in a book: Auckland, New Zealand - practically anywhere in the midwest - Dystopian style.

Yea that's all I have. I'd say other places I show interest in aren't as fascinating as these 6 by the way the books make them out to be.


1) Hogwarts – sorry I know it’s up there already but seriously if I could go anywhere it would be there. I would be a Hufflepuff, and Cedric would still be alive and we would get married and have magical babies…oh was that TMI? Sorry bout that I got carried away.

2) Narnia – AFTER the whole “Forever Winter” thing though. And preferably living near by to Ben Barnes Prince Caspian.

3) Forks. It’s beautiful out in Washington regardless of my obsession with those Twilight books. You can hate the books, you can hate the character's – but you can’t hate the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

4) The Overlook Hotel in Stephan Kings The Shining. I seriously dig haunted houses and all that so I would love to be stranded up there for a whole winter. If anyone knows how I can arrange that let me know!

5) New York as told by Rachel Cohn in Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares

6)District 12/The Arena and especially The Capital in Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games

7) With the circus in the 40’s in Water For Elephants

8) Basically some place with a Zombie Apocalypse, you know just so I can see if everything I learned from books and the movie Zombieland works. :0)

9) New York – through the eyes of a Shadow Hunter in Cassie Clares The Mortal Instruments.

10) Lake of The Woods resort in Playing Hurt by Holly Schindler – I know I live in Minnesota, why would I want to go to a place in my own state? You’ve obviulsy not read the book OR been to Minnesota. It’s purdy here!

What's your TTT this week? Link us here!


  1. I was definitely going to add the Circus with Water For Elephants.. but I decided not to!

  2. Wow this is such an awesome list! You're so right about The Overlook. Wish I had thought of that one!

  3. Great list! I wouldn't mind going to Widow's Vale and someplace where there was a zombie apocalypse. :)

  4. I know. Every single time I think of Hogwarts, I just have to say that line in my head!!! Love that song. Nice list!

  5. Everyone has Hogwarts, and it's great! I also had the setting for Water for Elephants in my list. :)

  6. I'd definitely agree with you on Hogwarts! Such an awesome world to be
