Top Ten Tuesday is hosted my the awesomepants ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week we’re discussing book settings we’d like to see more of. I love this topic because sometimes a setting can feel so rich and so integral to the story that it’s like another character. I mean, would Wizard school have been half as interesting if it had just taken place in a normal town surrounded by Muggles? I THINK NOT! No, it had to happen at Hogwarts.
Here are a few places I’d love to see in more books:
5. California- A born and bred Cali girl, my true allegiance will always rest here. There are so many fantastic landmarks and towns, such a friendly, warm atmosphere (and slight obsession with plastic surgery). There is truly no state like it.
7. Boarding Schools- I’d like to believe that were I ever to have attended a boarding school I’d have been the Frankie Landau Banks type of girl, but we all know I would have shrunk back and hidden, probably reading a book about the awesome prankster girls instead of being one. Anyway, boarding school settings rock.
8. Futuristic America- The Jetsons thought we’d be A-OK in the future, but most YA books have other ideas. They always have me guessing about what happened in America’s history to make them turn into a crazy, evil dystopia.
