Top Ten Tuesday: Fictional Book Settings I Want to Visit


Hello everyone!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is an extremely fun feature to participate in! For more information about Top Ten Tuesday, click here.

This week’s TTT theme is the top ten books set in x setting, meaning we get to pick whatever kind of setting we want! I chose my top ten books with fictional places that I want to visit because there are so many fantasy-and-dystopian-esque landmarks and cities that I would love to see. I used the same books a few times for this list because there are some series that have such a variety of fictional settings that I couldn’t choose just one!

10. The Capitol

(from The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins)

It would be so interesting to visit the Capital from the Hunger Games! I loved reading all of the descriptions about how extravagant it was and I think it’d be such a fun place to visit (although it was where President Snow lived and that’s… er-not entirely pleasant, but still I think it’d be cool to venture throughout the city).

9. Cabeswater

(from The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater)

I absolutely loved reading about Cabeswater when I read this series. It seemed so gorgeous and mystical and I think it’d be an incredible place to visit.

8. Illéa

(from The Selection series by Kiera Cass)

The one thing I noticed about The Selection series was that the readers never really got to explore the country that the book was set in. I think it would be interesting to explore through this country (and that magnificent castle that the Selection occurs in).

7. Hogsmeade

(from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling)

Of course Hogsmeade would make it onto my list! Hogsmeade is like a Christmas card come to life and I think it’d be such a beautiful place to visit.

6. Ardalan

(from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas)

Okay, I’ll be honest, I basically want to visit any and every fictional place that Sarah J. Maas has created. With that being said, I’d definitely want to go to Ardalan. I think it’s such a unique sort of kingdom with such a variety of areas.

5. The New York Shadowhunter Institute

(from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare)

Forever wishing that the Shadowhunter Institutes were real places because, let’s be honest, it would be freaking awesome to visit the Institute.

4. Terrasen

(from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas)

This is one of the only settings that I picked for this list that hasn’t been explored at all, really. I’m so excited for Empire of Storms so we can hopefully get a grander look at Terrasen and I’m hoping it’s as glorious and beautiful that I’ve imagined it to be!

3. Idris

(from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare)

Idris is definitely my favorite place within the Mortal Instruments series. It’s such an alluring sanctuary for Shadowhunters to live in and it allows them to be their true selves and every time it was visited in the series I fell in love with it more and more.

2. Hogwarts

(from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling)

I’m fairly sure that Hogwarts made it onto quite a few lists today. Hogwarts is basically the epitome of a place that almost everyone would want to visit. It’s such a magical place (no pun intended) and GAH, I love Hogwarts so much.

1. Velaris

(from the Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas)

At the very first description of Velaris, I knew that it was the one fictional place that I would absolutely love to visit. It’s so intricately and gorgeously described in A Court of Mist and Fury and I’m hoping it’s explored even more in the next book in this series because it’s definitely one of my favorite fictional places ever.

So, that’s it for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! What are a few fictional cities or landmarks that you’d love to visit? Comment below!

  1. When I first noticed that you put The Hunger Games on a list of book setting you’d like to visit, I was shocked. But now I see your point, and yeah, it would be cool to see The Capitol at its best.
