Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
Settings are SUPER important to me. It doesn’t matter if they’re real or make-believe; present, future or past. As long as they’re vivid, I love them to pieces.
But yeah, there are tons more settings I’d like to see more of. While I’m not sure if I’D be willing to tackle them (if I was a professional writer) I’d love to see more of them from writers I love!
Today’s Top Ten are the Ten Settings I’d Like To See More Of:
Alabama – I have an affinity to read just about anything that’s set in Alabama (where I live) and would love to see more books that take place in my home state.
Ireland – There just need to be more books set in Ireland.
Scotland – Ditto for Scotland.
Caribbean Islands – While I’ve never been (unless you include my internship in Cuba) I think there’s something kind of spectacular about books set on tropical islands. Lush landscapes, sparkling waters, hidden grottoes where making out could take place…
The Sea – Maybe not really actually on the sea, but there’s something about the ocean that I love. I feel like in most of my writing there is an element about the ocean and how it affects the characters. Definitely would like to see this more!
Airports – Dude, I love airports. More airports please!
1910s – Blame it on Downton Abbey, but I absolutely love this era right now! I want to read all the books set in this time period!
Prague – While I’ve only read two books set in Prague, I’ve fallen in love with it thanks to them! From the beautiful to the dirty sides, it’s super interesting and wrought with history!
Fairy Tale Worlds – Neverland, Wonderland, Far Far Away… I want to see more of these worlds in strange and new ways!
“Religious” Settings – Heaven and Hell, the Underworld, convents, churches, cathedrals, the afterlife… everyone has their own opinions and perceptions of these places. I love them as settings and seeing how writers describe them!
I hope authors are checking the blogs today! Or maybe a future writer!
