This week’s topic is Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

But…I actually decided to do 5 Places that Books Have Made Me Want To Visit and 5 Places that Books Have Made Me NOT Want To Visit.

 

Here are 5 places that I’d love to visit!


1. Disney after Dark by Ridley Pearson

Who wouldn’t want to visit Disney and be able to interact with the real characters? Sure, some of them might want to kill you, but the experience would be worth it! Right…?

 


2. Circle of Magic Quartet by Tamora Pierce

Yes, I’m sure that you are all tired of hearing about this series, but it’s amazing, which is why it keeps appearing in my Top Ten Tuesday picks! I would LOVE to go to Winding Circle!

 


3. Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

As mentioned in previous TTT posts, I love reading mermaid books! In this book, I loved the setting of Thalassinia and would love to visit it one day.

 


4. Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling

Hogwarts. If anyone doesn’t want to visit Hogwarts, you’re crazy! Enough said.

 


5. Born at Midnight by C. C. Hunter
Please, someone take me to Shadow Falls! That would be amazing! And hey, if I go there, that means that I must be some sort of magical/supernatural creature. I definitely wouldn’t say no to being that!

 

Here are 5 places that I would NOT want to visit!


1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
While it might be fun to read about Katniss going into the arena and entering the Hunger Games, it is not a destination that I’d like to visit.

 


2. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
My explanation for this is very similar to the Hunger Games. I love reading about the setting, but this is one book that I’d rather read about than actually visit.

 


3. Gone by Michael Grant
This is one of my favorite books that I have ever read. But I would never, ever, want to be stuck in the FAYZ.

 


4. Candor by Pam Bachorz
Being stuck in a town where subliminal messages are sent to all of the teenagers so that they act properly? No thanks, I like living in places where people have free will.


5. Matched by Ally Condie
Yeah, yeah, I know. This list was composed with dystopian books that all have the same message. I don’t want to be controlled! But it’s true! I enjoy freedom of speech and wouldn’t want to visit (or live) anywhere where I had little freedom.

  1. I agree with all of the places you don’t want to go xD But the only books I’ve read of the places you do want to go is Born at Midnight and Harry Potter…maybe I’ll check the others out 😀

  2. It took me a REALLY long time to put together my list because I thought I had to pick real places and I apparently don’t read many books set in real locations. Anyway. I stretched myself and found some exotic locations and matched them up with books I’ve read. I also considered creating a list of book places I wouldn’t like to visit. Ha. You beat me to it.
