Leaving on a Jet Plane

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, Top Ten Tuesday invites bookish bloggers to share lists based on a given topic. This week, I’m highlighting the top ten bookish settings I’d LOVE to visit!

Top Ten Tuesday is always hard for me – I go blank every week for a bit and feel like I’ve never read anything! LOL! Well, we’ll see what I can churn out this week – I know there are bookish places I’m dying to visit…

The List

The Yule Ball [Harry Potter and the Goblet of FireΒ by J.K. Rowling] – so I can wear Hermione’s dress!

Imperial Russia [Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman by Robert K. Massie] – because Russia fascinates me!

Tortall [Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce] – just to tag along with Alanna to and see the beautifully ancient sites described by Pierce!

Torte [Meet Your Baker by Ellie Alexander] – to inhale all the delightful-sounding pastries and coffee!

Oz [Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige] – yes, to the creepy Oz!

River Heights [The Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene] – where wholesome mysteries abound!

Jurassic Park [Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton] – except I want the dinosaurs to stay INSIDE their pens!

The Night Circus [The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern] – circus tent city!

The Sherlock Holmes Bookshop [Elementary, She Read by Vicky Delany] – it’s a bookshop!

Manderley [Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier] – “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again…”

Love, Maggie

    Great list!!! I guess I’d also like to go to Jurassic Park if I was SUPER SURE the dinosaurs would stay in their damn cages. I have been to the ranch where they filmed in hawaii and it’s breathtaking.

    Here’s mine!

    TTT

    • OMG, Chloe, that is so cool! You’ve sorta kinda been to Jurassic Park already! LOL! πŸ˜€

  2. Great list! I’m not one that likes to dance so I would probably not be going to the yule ball. But I will definitely not say no when I get the chance to visit Hogwarts πŸ˜€

    • I can’t dance worth a crap, but I’d go just to blow everybody’s mind in that dress! LOL!

    • Thanks, Nikki! I can’t believe it took me so long to discover Alanna – better late than never! πŸ˜€

    I’d love to visit Russia. That’s where my family is from. Great list!

  5. I don’t know if I’d go to Jurassic Park or not. I’ve read the book and seen all the movies. I just don’t think I could do it. I know what would happen! lol

    • Yes! The Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mysteries are so good! I’m gearing up to read the second and third soon! πŸ˜€

    • Hey, Sophie! Thanks so much! Yes, you must read Nancy Drew – they are among my most favorite books ever! I’ve never watched the movie, but I love Emma Roberts, so I need to see it! πŸ˜€

    I literally snapped my fingers and said “Yaass!” When I saw the Night Circus! Needless to say, I would go there as well.

  9. I loved reading the places you’d visit. I think most of us would love to go to the Yule ball and wear Hermione’s dress!

    • Yes! Her dress is so gorgeous; I wish I could sew – then I’d totally make one just like it! πŸ˜€
