Top Ten Tuesday: Setting I'd Like to See

hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

1. I think it would be really interesting to read a book that set on a ship at sea.  A long time ago I read The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi and really enjoyed that, so I would love to read more books with that setting.

2. A jungle setting would be cool.  I would be interested to see how characters would interact with the on-goings of a jungle, like the Jungle Book.

3. I love Arthurian legend and find the medieval setting fascinating.  So of course, I would like to see more books set in this time period. 

4. More of the Harry Potter Universe is something I will continuously crave, but who doesn't want to know more about the past and the future.  It's so interesting and really well thought out.  I know J.K. Rowling has all the answers, so she should think about sharing them. (please!)

5. A lot of the books I read are set in the US, but I would like to see more in different countries like Australia and France.  I think it's cool to incorporate aspects of the city culture into a book and  it adds to the atmosphere of the story.

6. I love a good ghost story!  There should be more novels set in towns that have a legend attached to them, something to spook the reader.

7. I feel like a lot of stories take place in either the winter of the summer, I'd like to see more take place in the fall.  I absolutely love the fall, so it would be cool.

8. I'd like to see a story set underwater.  I don't know why, but I'm fairly certain I would really enjoy reading a book about an underwater society.

9. Road trip!  I think everyone could do with a little more on-the-road type stories.  I really enjoyed some of the stories like this in the past, but I haven't come across very many recently.

10. I always love high fantasy worlds that are created by authors, there can never be too many.


  1. I want to see more roadtrips & under water as well. Great list!

  2. I love a good ghost story too, and reading books set in towns that already have a legend would be great!
