Top Ten Tuesday #16: Places Mentioned In Books That I’d Like to Visit

top ten tuesday

Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.  We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!

This week’s (February 26th, 2019) topic is: Places Mentioned In Books That I’d Like to Visit

Since there are two of us running this blog (Melanie and Mireille), we’re going to break these memes up between us and each pick five!

Cair Paravel from The Narnia Chronicles by C.S. Lewis
I grew up on the Narnia stories and this was the very first place that popped into my head, even before Hogwarts! Just looks so beautiful and magical.

Hogwarts from The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Everyone is going to have this one their list, come on now LOL

Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Again, this is my childhood.  Yes, I’m aware that I’d likely get killed or worse by visiting this place but WORTH IT!!!

Diagon Alley from The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Potter makes it’s second appearance on my list.  Another one I think we’ll see a lot of on lists this week! I mean how cool would it be to go browse the shops and eat the food? Yes please!

The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party from Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
I’ve had an obsession with Alice since I was three years old.  How fun would it be to enter this party for just awhile.  Maybe I could go for my Unbirthday?!?!

Velaris from A Court of Thorn and Roses Series by Sarah J Maas
This place sounds amazing. After reading A Court of Mist and Fury, I immediately wanted to visit this town. It seems to have a lot of good shops and quaint areas. Plus you probably could hang out with the Inner Circle at a local pub.

Hogwarts from Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowlings
OK let’s be serious, who wouldn’t want to go to Hogwarts? It would be so amazing to attend all the amazing classes and hang out in the common rooms. What would be the class you’d be more stoke about? I would definitely like learn charms and potions.

Ketterdam from Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo
I might just want to visit Ketterdam for the waffles, lol. Also I would totally join the Dregs.

The Red Church from Nevernight Chronicles by Jay Kristoff
I’m not sure how long I would last in this universe but if I could be anything in a fantasy book I would love to be an assassin and I think this “school” is the perfect place to learn the trade.

Nevermoor from Nevermoor Series by Jessica Townsend
I absolutely loved this book and universe. Nevermoor seems like such a fun interesting place to be. I might even be picked for the school, maybe not… probably not, lol.

  1. NARNIA! Love the addition of this beautiful world. No matter how many times I use this book on a list, each time it fits, I seem to re-use it. And I’ll likely continue to do so. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  2. I think Ketterdam would be a beautiful place to visit… but I’d be way too worried about the many thieves/dishonest people to actually go there. And I still haven’t read Nevernight, but the Red Church sounds like a fascinating, terrifying place and I love reading about those, I should really get to it. Great list!

  3. OOh great picks! I chose just about everywhere good in Harry Potter as well! I might have forgot one or two, but basically EVERYWHERE in Harry Potter is on my list too! Lol! Totally forgot about Velaris though. Kicking myself over that too!

    Thanks for visiting my TTT post!

  4. Ketterdam is probably my most favorite fictional setting. It’s amazing how Leigh manages to include some facts about its rich history into the novel. And we also get to explore a lot of gritty details about the dark side of this city . While reading six of crows, I honestly felt like the city was a character itself, something I was begging the characters to finally escape from.
