Top Ten Settings I'd Like To See More Of (Or At All)
1) Harry Potter's Wizarding World
I just have to mention it. I know it's probably boring all of you who have been following my blog for a while because it's always Harry Potter with me, but...it's an obsession. Can't handle it!
2) Really, really fantastical Worlds
Admittedly, I have my struggles with worlds like the one in the Inheritance Series or Middle Earth. What I crave is a world like the one in Cornelia Funke's Inkheart - I loved that one! Usually, though, the stories in those worlds have a lot of travelling and that quest-like vibe to them and I get bored by that really fast, sadly :/
3) Underwater Worlds
Ever since I was a little girl I loved mermaids and the possibility of kingdoms under the sea...but for some reason I've only ever read one single mermaid book and that one was not as much fun as I hoped it would be.
4) Anything in the Sky (not necessarily space, though)
I'm not particularly interested in Sci-Fi and space and all that, but I think I'd enjoy a story that takes place in the clouds...like...a kingdom build on the clouds or something...
5) Real settings (like haunted malls, theaters, schools etc.)
I read Tempestuous in December which is a story that is set in a mall and there's a bad snowstorm outside so no one can get out and they form groups and spy on each other and stuff and I figured - I love those kinds of stories!
6) BOARDING SCHOOLS
It's just...in me. I love boarding schools. Seriously, put one in your book and I'm bound to love it.
7) Other countries /China...and Russia maybe, or some place in Africa)
Books are such a great way to learn about new people and traditions and culture and stuff...why always read stuff that's made up by the author to make our own world more interesting? Why not read about a world that is real and that we know only very little about?
8) Big Cities (like L.A or New York)
Because I love it when you really get into that Big City mood (I'm from a very small village...so...you know...)
9) Historical places (and I do not mean Victorian London!)
Because if I wanted to read about Historical London or any well known town in Italy or France I know there's a million books out there. I want unique historical settings, please! How about...Poland?
10) A Smalltown like Gatlin
I loved Gatlin from the Beautiful Creatures books. The town plays such a big and important role in all for books...I wish every author would do that!
