Top Ten Tuesday (3)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of us will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All that's asked is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers

This weeks topic is Top Ten Settings I'd Like To See More Of.

  1. Underwater- Come on, we all wished we could switch lives with Ariel just for that underwater castle.
  2. Greece- I eat up books about greek mythology like an injured soldier eats ambrosia, but not very many of them are set in Greece for some reason. It seems like a beautiful place and I would love to read a book set there.
  3. 1920s America- Yes, this is a setting and a time period but they go together very well. I don't think I've ever read a book set here and I would love to because I think it's fascinating.
  4. Texas- I may be a little biased because it's where I live but I would love to see more books set here. It's a big state so there's plenty of possibilities and who doesn't want more cowboys in YA?
  5. Asia- India, China, Russia-I could go on. They would all be interesting to read about. The culture, the myths, the places, people. All of it.
  6. Prague- Anyone who has read Daughter of Smoke and Bone knows what I'm talking about. This place sounds gorgeous.
  7. Historical Europe- This is kind of a continuation of 6 but I mean anywhere in Europe. Think Grave Mercy or The Infernal Devices-more books like that.
  8. London- More modern day London. Maybe with a Doctor Who feel. Hmmm, aliens in London don't think I've ever read something like that before.
  9. Beach- I know there's plenty of beach books but I'm thinking less The Summer I Turned Pretty and more like The Scorpio Races.
  10. New York City- Maybe I'm not reading the right books but I can't think of more than a few books set in NY that I've read. 

Those are my picks for this week! Sorry this is a little late. As I type this I'm sitting in a back seat almost 800 miles from home. You can thank two of my younger siblings for the spelling and grammar checks :).



  1. Hey there! Greece is a great choice! Would've never thought of that one! Also, I picked Asia, too...it's such a fascinating continent!

    1. Greece is definately on my bucket list, but since I don't plan on kicking the bucket any time soon reading about it would be nice. There's so many places in Asia that would be lovely to read about and so much history to tell.

      Thanks fort the comment!

  2. Beach and Greece...ummm. I think perhaps that you should read the sisterhood of traveling pants series if you havent read them yet...they have both of those topics in them...I don't have a top ten list i just started to blog but it would be very nice if you visited my blog:)

    1. I've read the first two and I have the rest around here somethwhere. I'll have to think about reading them. Maybe in the summer. I love the movies :).
      Thanks for the rec and I'll be sure to check out you blog!
