Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's top ten list is favorite book settings. Now, I find it impossible to put my top ten lists in order, so I am just going to share ten of my favorites in a mostly random order.
London, England. This is one of my favorite settings for practically any book. There are times when I read books just because they are set in London.
Tortall from the works of Tamora Pierce. I love the world Ms. Pierce created. I love the magic, the cities and the fantastic creatures that fill it.
Ixia and Sitia from the Study and Glass series' by Maria V. Snyder. If Maria V. Snyder invented it, I love it. Enough said.
Talia from the Stravaganza series by Mary Hoffman, especially the city of Bellezza. Italy mixed with magic and a Venice made from silver. Beautiful.
Archeld and Bellandra from Victoria Hanley's The Seer and the Sword and sequels. I would love to visit these places, especially Bellandra with its peaceful people and their art.
Luminaux from Sharon Shinn's Samaria novels. Luminaux is such a vivid and interesting city filled with creators and music. I could live there.
Pern from the works of Anne McCaffrey. I really, really want to meet a dragon.
Idris from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Just imagine a city of glass hidden away in modern Europe and nobody knows that it's there.
Sherwood Forest from the Robin Hood legends. I grew up on Robin Hood and King Arthur, but I always loved Robin more. If only he wasn't so devoted to Marion, but then again, that is part of why I like him so much.
Pemberley, Derbyshire, England. Mr. Darcy lives there. It has a lake. Darcy is known to swim in said lake. Need I say any more?
This is my first Top Ten Tuesday, but I am sure there will be more!
