The Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want to Visit

Popping in for a Top Ten Tuesday post today. These are the top ten places books have made me want to visit (whether fictional or real).


I am still waiting for my letter. I don’t care if I’m 31.


I’m crediting Jeri-Smith Ready for this one.

1920s Paris

I’m just gong to go hang out with Dorothy Parker, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Don’t mind me.

Regency England

I’m going to go looking for Mr. Darcy. But I’ll settle for Colin Firth.

Boarding School

Too many boarding school books to give any single one credit for this dream.

Ancient Ireland

I’ve always wanted to go to Ireland, but Edward Rutherford made me want to go to pre-St. Patrick Ireland.

Deep Valley, Minnesota

Betsy-Tacy makes turn-of-the-century Minnesota seems warm and inviting.

The Hundred Acre Wood

One of my very first literary travel dreams. It has never faded.

The Book World

I don’t necessarily want to risk my life as often as Thursday Next, but I wouldn’t mind hanging out with some literary characters (probably not Hamlet).

Imperial Russia

I’ve got a thing for Russian classics. But I also have a thing for warmth, so maybe not.


Where would you like to visit?

    The coast of Italy (Hotel Adequate View) from Beautiful Ruins! Definitely Hogwarts. And Scotland with Jamie and Claire.

      Oh, the hotel in Beautiful Ruins is a good one! That cover alone will convince me.

    A similar post idea has been turning around in my brain for a few days now: the fictional places I most want to live in. Deep Valley and Hogwarts are at the top of the list

      Perhaps summer in Deep Valley and winter at Hogwarts?

    Oh the Hundred acre wood! That’s such a good one. I have the book world on my list too. I really want to hang out with Miss Havisham!

    My brain hurt too much to participate in this week but I LOVE how you’ve included different times. Now THAT would be awesome.
