Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Bookish Settings I’d Love to Visit. One of the best things about good books is their ability to transport the reader to imaginative worlds.

Hogwarts – Harry Potter series

Harry Potter

I have a feeling that the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter will appear on quite a few lists this week. 🙂

Pemberley – Pride and Prejudice

Where else would one find Mr Darcy! And of course his library. 😍

Hogsmeade – Harry Potter series

This delightful village has many shops, including the fun sweet shop Honeydukes.

Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

So many yummy concoctions.

Thornfield Hall – Jane Eyre

A dark gothic mansion which reminds me of the castle from Beauty and the Beast.

Winterfell – A Song of Ice and Fire series

The cool castle and home of House Stark.

Khorasan – The Wrath and the Dawn

I adored the setting of this novel which is in the ancient Persian empire of Khorasan.

Gatsby’s Mansion – The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby

If I had the chance to go to Gatsby’s extravagant parties in his mansion, I’d acknowledge the host. Who’s with me?

Wonderland – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

This is probably the ultimate topsy-turvy land.

The Secret Garden – The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden

The enchanting garden in the Yorkshire Moors which is also home to a smart robin.

  1. Pemberley is one of my FAVORITE fictional settings, and Pride and Prejudice is my favorite classic of all time. I love England in the 1800s and the gorgeous landscapes. Any authors that wrote during the same period as Jane Austen fascinate me, but Thornfield Hall and Mr. Rochester gave me weird feelings when I read Jane Eyre. The gothic setting was cool, though. AMAZING post!!

    1. Thank you! Pride and Prejudice is my favourite novel so I had to include Pemberley. It would be cool to visit and explore Thornfield Hall, although I’m not sure if I would want to stay there overnight!

      Can’t wait to see your list!

      1. Lord of the Rings is great fun… I admit I found the Frodo and Gollum bits hard to get through, but I love the parts about Eowyn and Faramir that aren’t in the movie 🙂 Matthew Reilly is great – I don’t normally go for action novels but his I’d read and keep turning the pages!

  2. Hogwarts and Hogsmeade are definitely there. I don’t think I’ll visit Winterfell though. I wouldn’t like to be in the middle of any wars. Gatsby’s mansion is also a good setting but I wouldn’t go there too many times. Lol

    1. I couldn’t leave out Hogwarts and Hogsmeade! You’re right, Winterfell would be hectic at most times, lol. And Gatsby’s mansion would be nice to visit at least once, but I wouldn’t party too hard! 🙂
