Top Ten Tuesday: I Want These Settings!

Books are set in so many wonderful cool places. It's hard to come up with anything that hasn't been done before! But I gave it a shot for this week's Brook and Bookish question:

Top Ten Settings You'd Like to See More Of

1. Adventures on a farm... sounds boring maybe? But I think it would be so sweet and nice.
2. The Amazon jungle... that would be intense, and I can't think of one book set here... that I've read anyway.

3. Italy... because there can never be enough books set in Italy!
4. A big family... anywhere.. maybe a big city because that would be unusual I think.
5. A space station...yeah okay, like Star Trek's space station, only not.
6. Some quaint bed and breakfast...maybe in New England... this sounds like a calm relaxing setting too, like the farm

7. York, England... I visited here and loved it and I can't think of many books set here.

8. Plymouth Colony... I have yet to visit here, but want to, and I think a book set here would be very interesting.
9. High school band geeks.... I've only read a few books were the high school band plays a big part in the characters lives...we need more!
10. Medieval England... I can never get enough of this setting. I have no idea why, because it such a rough and hard time period, but so fascinating too.

How about you? Where would you love to see more books take place?


  1. Oh heck yes! I would love to read a book that takes place in the band room or on the football field during half time! I was in color guard in high school, so whenever I stumble across the odd book that has a band geek in it, it makes me feel very nostalgic.

    I'd also like to see more books take place on farms. Or at least rural settings. Where I live is pretty rural. Not a lot happens, but it sure is a pretty charming backdrop.

    1. Kami: I guess we need more band geek books!

  3. York looks lovely. I want to go there and read more about it!

  4. I love the band idea! That has so many possibilities!

    Great post.

  5. Great list. I went to Boston and out to the Plymouth Colony where they have the Mayflower 2 docked. It was very interesting and I think it would make a great setting as well. I read The Scarlet Letter last year which has a Puritan Village in the Boston area as its setting. It was good. I do enjoy a well used setting in a book. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  6. Love your list. I think it would be fun to read a book set at a bed and breakfast, either by the guests or the people who run it. And, I put space, but a space station would be just as good. :) And, yes to Medieval England! :D

    1. Jenni: I agree, either view point would be cool for the B and B.

  7. I'd love to read more books set in the Amazon jungle or at a quaint B&B! :) My TTT list: http://aliceinreaderland.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/settings/

  8. I agree, Italy is always a good setting. I love the Donna Leon books that are set in Venice.

  9. The Amazon is definitely a place I want to read about but not really go to in reali life.

  10. Yes to a big family- so many personalities!
    I also love the B&B idea :)
    I love York- I have family friends up that way and it is so beautiful!
    Great list!
    My Top Ten!

    1. Lettie: I was wondering if someone would get the big family thing!

  11. I could go for a book that takes place on a space station.

  12. YES for space stations! Such a fun atmosphere :)
