Places in Books I’d Love to Live

Hello! Today I have another Top Ten Tuesday post. This week’s topic is places in books I’d love to live. Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. I am terrible at reading books and then instantly forgetting pretty much everything about the novel except for the characters, although I am getting much better at this. I’m going to include a couple of real cities, but I think I am going to mostly focus on the fantasy worlds and places.

New York – Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

There are so many books that I love that are set in New York. It is one of my favourite places to read about. I’ve never been, but I would love to visit one day in the future, and to live there would also be amazing.

London – When the Curtain Falls by Carrie Hope Fletcher              

I love London. Whenever I would visit to attend concerts or on days out, I would always be fascinated with the city. I think it would be amazing to live there. When the Curtain Falls made me envious of being around all of the theatres and amazing parts of London.

Idris – The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare

Idris is the home country to the Shadowhunters. I am currently rereading the series and there is a description in City of Glass that is along the lines of being able to see the stars in all of their beauty because there’s no light pollution and that just sounds perfect to me. The whole country sounds beautiful, and it’d be amazing to live there.

Velaris A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Maas

How could I not put this place on this list? It is so beautiful and filled with art, and just emits peace and serenity. Additionally, I would want to live in the House of Wind specifically. A house that is magic and meets my every need and gives me books to read? Yes, please.

Crescent City – House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas

Whilst we are in Sarah J Maas’ worlds, lets go with Crescent City. One of the things I loved about this book was the description of the city and how technologically advanced it is. I would love to live there, and I have always been intrigued about the university there – maybe I would attend, get a second degree.

Wonderland – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Ever since I was a child, I have been obsessed with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the fantastical elements of Wonderland. I think it would be such an incredible experience to live in such a whimsical, joyful world.

Well this Top Ten Tuesday isn’t going to reach ten… I am blanking on all of the other wonderful places that I have visited within pages of a novel. Let me know which places from your favourite books that you would love to live in!

  1. I do not read a lot of fantasy or Sci-Fi, but Idris and Valeris sound like amazing places. I would not, under any circumstances want to live in Wonderland, too much uncertainty for me. Great list.

      1. It’s such a great city, I can’t wait to get back there more (though I have to admit, I have not missed the pricey train tickets!). Honestly after the past year, I want to go everywhere.
