This week’s prompt for Top 10 Tuesday is Bookish Worlds I’d Want to Live In. For me personally, there are SO MANY. I narrowed my favorite fictional worlds as best as I could.
- Middle-Earth (The Lord of the Rings): Specifically I’d love to live in Rivendell, Rohan, Minas Tirith, Lothlorien, Buckland, or the Grey Havens. I’m not picky. Not at all.
- Ingary (Howl’s Moving Castle): The land of seven-league boots and invisibility cloaks! Plus, if I want to go in between normal Earth and Ingary, I can just hire a wizard to make me a portal.
- Dinotopia (Dinotopia series): I probably haven’t talked about my secret weakness for Dinotopia before, but I just love dinosaurs so much and when I was a kid I wanted for Dinotopia to be real S O. B A D. I want dino pals and dino steeds!
- Earthsea (Earthsea series): Yes, Earthsea sounds terrifying, but on the other hand they have dragons and an insane magic system and a much better magic school than Hogwarts. Yeah, you heard me.
- Atlanta, Georgia (Kate Daniels series): In this series, the technological age is OVER and is being slowly eaten by a new magic age. I’m pretty okay with this and while I don’t think I would survive longer than a week, it would be a GOOD MAGICAL WEEK.
- Temeraire’s alternate history world (Temeraire series): My reasons for this are pretty similar to those for Dinotopia: I want dragon friends and dragon steeds and tiny dragons and giant dragons, just a part of nature, totally normal, nothing to see here except DRAGONS.
- Camp Halfblood (Percy Jackson and the Olympians series): I don’t need demigod powers, I just want to visit and take notes for the science. And make genealogical trees for every single camper.
- Naboo (Star Wars): Star Wars is more of a movie franchise than a book franchise but this is reminding me that there are NOT ENOUGH BOOKS set on Naboo. I’m planning to move there as soon as I complete my lightspeed rocket.
- The Reaches (The Books of the Raksura series): This is another one of those places that I would probably get eaten by a giant predator in a matter of days. But if I could finagle my way into a Raksuran colony tree, everything would be fine and I’d have the best time ever making jewelry or something and convincing giant winged lizards to fly me around.
- Astreiant (Astreiant series): I’m reading the most recent installment, Point of Sighs, right now and this series is the best combination of perfect fantasy worldbuilding, fun characters, casual matriarchy, drama, and murder mystery. And yes I would definitely live there.
