Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Crave

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke and the Bookish

I'm going on an adventure! So excited for the 2nd part of the Hobbit to come out!

I love this week's topic. Ten places that books have made me want to visit, real or not real.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1)Just imagine pulling up in the middle of the night to your new home, ~Hogwarts~. | These Imagined Travel Posters Bring "Harry Potter" Spots To Life

I really don't think this one needs an explanation.

Peter PanA Neverland map--One day I will have a boy, and if his room isn't in Harry Potter, it will be in Peter Pan and this will be hanging on his wall :)

I have a bit of a Peter Pan complex, so I'd love to go visit Neverland...and the Mermaid's Cove.

The Chronicles of Narnia (Chronicles of Narnia, #1-7)C.S Lewis - one of my favorite repins ... especially as I am rereading 'The Hobbit' in preparation for the movie!

Who wouldn't want to be able to go through their wardrobe to a magical land that you end up ruling?

The Shire.
There are many places in the world of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings that I'd love to see, but I mostly love the Shire. I'm an outdoorsy person, and I love the simple life. This looks like my kind of place. Sitting outside reading a book, gardening, living in a whole in the side of a hill.

Uglies (Uglies, #1)“Shay’s Directions”  -Uglies by Scott Westerfeld  I knew immediately what the worst mistake was as soon as it talked about breaks!

The Smoke.
Like I stated before, I'm an outdoors person. Being off the grid in The Smoke always sounded fun to me. And I really really really love the idea of having a hoverboard.

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)La Grande Roue de Paris.--I really want to go back and see Paris from the Ferris Wheel.  Its one of the things I didn't get to see.

Paris seems like it would be a really grand adventure.

The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)glitchinthematrixx:  herthen:  Entrance To The Sacred Tree by ~Industrial-Forest on deviantART

Fairies. I want to go visit the Fairies.

Heirs of the Force (Star Wars: Young Jedi Knights, #1)Jedi Academy Tee shirt from Teenerd

Jedi Knight Academy.
Hook it up with a lightsaber!

A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1)

Spence Academy/The Realms.
Victorian boarding school and a magical world? Sounds like a good time.

Twilight (Twilight, #1)Forks, Washington

Forks, Washington.
Not even going to lie or try and hide it. I was one of the many that wanted to drop everything and go to Forks when Twilight was released. I'd read so much fantasy or historical fiction so this was really one of the first books that I read that I could actually go to the place that it was set and that was exciting. And honestly even now I wouldn't turn down a chance to drive there when I go to Washington.

Where what literary place would you love to travel to?


  1. Oh! I forgot all about the Jedi Knight Academy! That one should have made my list.
    I didn't add Hogwarts, but I did add Hogsmeade/Diagon Ally. I've done my 12+ years in school and don't care to see any more- magical or not!

  2. I love Twilight but I would not want to go to Forks! I hear it's pretty touristy and overrated :/ I've never read Harry Potter but Hogwarts would be fun!

    My TTT

  3. Great list! I really wish we could all visit Hogwarts!

  4. Great list - I picked Hogwarts and Paris too.
    Also, seeing The Iron King on your list made me remember that I still have that book on my TBR pile and must get round to reading it soon :)

  5. Hogwarts, Narnia and Paris made my list too, but I would love to visit Neverland too! :)
    My TTT

  6. Nice choices! We have many of the same! I started reading down your list and I was thinking "did she copy mine?" ;) Then it got more different though.

  7. If Forks wasn't 3,000 miles away from me, I'd probably have gone back in the day. Of course, Hogwarts and Narnia are perfect. Neverland always kind of scared me, though. Great list!

  8. I want to go to Forks, too! I've been to Seattle and Portland and Vancouver before, but I would love to see the Pacific Northwest not in the cities!

    And definitely I want to go to Hogwarts!!!! :)

  9. Fantastic list :) I'd love to go the Realms, how stunning do they sound?

  10. Interesting that you've got omething with Star Wars :-)
    For me it would be rather the Star Wars Places from the movies and I wouldn't count the books of the movies (There are, but I'd count them just as a part of the movies) because, well, you'd exspect that they're movies :'-)

  11. Asics Australia Online embarrassed, I was scum, where fitted on her. I asics factory outlet do not know cheap but also Asics Australia Online And he just Cheap Asics Running Shoes acquaintances, so ask yourself what represents, but also do not create more self-esteem than their Asics Australia Online own, cheap asics but do not know cheap liked her.
