Top Ten Tuesday: Settings I'd Like To See More Of

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

When my wanderlust gets bad - like right now - I love reading books set in places I want to visit, or that I've been and want to revisit. It gives me a vicarious thrill until I can actually go there myself. 

Top Ten (err...7) Settings I'd Like To See More Of 
 1. Canada. My home and native land! There are not enough books set in Canada. From my experience, the majority of Canadian authors don't even set their books here. It's very rare to come across a book set anywhere in Canada, and I always get really excited when I find one.  

2. Ireland. I also have trouble finding books set in Ireland. I'm planning (hoping, praying, obsessing) on going to Ireland this year, and I've been searching for books set there, but I haven't found many, especially YA books. If you know of any, please let me know!

3. New Orleans. I've always been fascinated with New Orleans and the same problem as the first two applies for this one. There just aren't enough books set in New Orleans.

4. Paris. *sigh* Paris is one place I've actually been, and love reading about. Books like Anna and the French Kiss make me fall in love with the city all over again.

5. London. Another obsession. I love British slang, hearing about places and people and food and everything else in London.

6. New York City. There are definitely no shortage of books set in NYC, I just love reading them and hope people never stop writing about this city. 

7. Faerie. I love books about faeries, particularly ones where people actually travel to the Faerie realms.

Those are my top seven settings I'd like to see more of. What are some of yours? If you're participating, feel free to link me up and I'll come see your list!


  1. I can't think of any YA books off the top of me head with Irish settings, which really does surprise me, however Nora Roberts wrote some. The two series I can think of right now would be the ones with Jewels of the Sun and Born in Fire.

  2. I also love Ireland and London; hence why they made my list. Canada and Paris should have been on my list.

    Great list!

  5. Nice list! Ireland and England are a definite yes for me. I have yet to read a Canadian book. ;)

  6. I'd like to see more books in Canada too. There really isn't a lot, is there?

  7. All of these settings would be lovely!

  8. Canada would top my list too. It's one of the reasons I do the Canadian Challenge, and track all the Canada books I read.
