Top Ten Tuesday: Places mentioned in books that I’d like to visit

I’m sorry I have been so inactive the last couple of days, but school is getting the better of me (maths and politics exam, class choices for graduation…), but I decided this post was unavoidable, because what’s better than dreaming of a literary world? About the meme: Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish, but is now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl!

#1 London – Silver

Everyone who has been following me for a little while probably knows that London is my favorite city in the world and that I’m obsessed with it. But especially the places mentioned in Silver by Kerstin Gier are special and the reason I chose this to be the first place. It’s not the typical stuff like Big Ben and Westminster that everyone knows but the Highgate Cemetery and many small places or feelings that are special in London.

#2 Hogwarts – Harry Potter

Oh, who would have thought? I have been seeing a lot of Hogwarts in these posts and so I’ll try to keep it short: It’s everyone’s dream to go to a wizarding school far far away in an old castle. And for me, personally, I hope it will come true one day as I want to study in Oxford!

#3 Alicante – Shadowhunters

This city has fascinated me every time one of the thousand books by Cassandra Clare was set in the magical Shadowhunters capital. I just loved the way the architecture was described, in that majestic, grand and very Versailles kind of way!

#4 Ketterdam – Six of Crows

People will probably think I’m out of my mind. She wants to visit the place in Six of Crows where gangs rule the city and poverty dominates the life of many??

Yes, in fact I want. Simply because Leigh Bardugo did such an excellent job describing the city and its atmosphere that I can’t wait to actually see it in real life.

#5 Caraval – Caraval

I mean, everyone who read Stephanie Garber’s Caraval wants to take part or at least enjoy the games, right? Who doesn’t want to forget their own problems and worries for just a week and dive into this magical setting full of colors, wonders and games?

#6 New Beijing – Cinder

Cinder‘s setting probably isn’t the prettiest and most amazing and astonishing setting in the whole world of books, but I believe that living there or visiting could be quite overwhelming for a teenager living in 2019! The many hovers, skyscrapers and robots…

#7 Arundel – The Penderwicks

For endless years in my childhood life, I have wondered how the big estate of Arundel in Jeanne Birdsall’s The Penderwicks would look like in real life. I’m personally really fond of old architecture (that’s why I love London and Paris more than NYC) and I think I would be totally overwhelmed by its beauty.

#8 Ellingham Academy – Truly Devious

Again, I’m fond of old architecture and feel like this could have the same effect as Arundel or Hogwarts/ Oxford.

I would also love to attend Ellingham Academy because who wouldn’t want to live in an old, marvelous villa?

#9 Elfhame – The Cruel Prince

Don’t tell me you haven’t wondered how it would be like living as a Faerie in Holly Black’s The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King?

Eating whatever your heart desires, dancing (although I’m not a fan) and just having fun…

#10 Cloudburst Falls – Black Blade

Jennifer Estep describes Lila’s hometown as so beautiful and overall magical that I would love to pay it a visit…

That’s my list for today, I hope you enjoyed this post and have great day!

  1. Interesting list. Highgate Cemetery is atmospheric and tourists can book a tour. If you’re looking for other quirky places in London try Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese pub on Fleet Street. Charles Dickens used to drink there!
