Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

TOP TEN TUESDAY time, WHOOP! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish. Today's theme is all about places that books have made you want to visit. Pack your bags and get ready for an adventure!

1. Hogwarts
I am a HUGE Potterhead so of course the Harry Potter series has me wanting to go to Hogwarts. Each year I've been so disappointed when an owl didn't deliver my acceptance letter! *pout* But seriously, anyone who loves the magic of Harry Potter would give just about anything to roam the halls of Hogwarts, eat in the Great Hall, play on the Quidditch Field, take a midnight terrifying stroll through the Dark Forest, or visit Hagrid's hut. I want to go to there!!!

2. France
Anna and the French Kiss completed enthralled me and after reading the book, I wanted my husband and I to pack up our belongings and move across the pond. That book just did something to me and most definitely stroked my inner-traveler.

3. Planet L'eihr
Alienated and Invaded introduces us to a new planet, L'eihr where hunky Aelyx hails from. L'eihr just sounds so interesting and DIFFERENT from Earth and who wouldn't want that experience in their lifetime? Sign me up for space travel, baby. I'm there!

4. Maine
While I used to travel to Maine once per year or so, it's easily been over 4 years since I've been up there. Reading The Sense Thieves Trilogy took me back to the beauty and awe that the Maine coast can bring. Definitely see a trip to Maine happening in the next couple years.

5. Alagaesia
I LOVED The Inheritance Cycle and would love to travel to Alagaesia to meet Eragon, Arya, Saphira and the rest of the gang. And Du Weldenvarden? Who wouldn't want to go there? Sounds absolutely breathtaking. EEP! Just thinking about it makes me want to re-read the series.

6. Camp Half Blood
I want to be a demigod! How awesome would it be to find out that one of your parents is an actual Greek GOD?! Doesn't get much cooler than that! And to go to Camp Half Blood and be surrounded by other demigods, getting to compete in awesome events, and learn how to hone sweet skills? Bring it!

7. NYC
I've only been to NYC once and absolutely loved my time there but reading series set in the Big Apple ALWAYS makes me want to go back. The Blue Bloods Series is a great example of a series that makes me want to go enjoy the city life for a week or two... then I'll happily head back to the suburbs.

8. Westeros
I love the Game of Thrones books and would love to visit Westeros. If I happened to run into Jon Snow and Ghost on the wall, I wouldn't complain! And Winterfell, I most definitely would want to visit Winterfell.

9. Nantucket
Reading Nantucket Blue made me want to go to Nantucket SO badly. I've never been but it sounds like such a quaint, sunshiny and happy place. Relaxing, warm, and beachy. I need to go there ASAP.

10. London
Ahhhhh, London. Reading The Infernal Devices always makes me want to hop over the pond and start saying things like bloody hell and good day. Strolling along the Thames River wouldn't suck either!

It's weird but before blogging I used to read almost all travel books (no fiction! lol) but I haven't picked one up in years.

I love NYC so whenever I read a story set there that mentions the places I've been or new places to discover I get excited.

AH! You and I definitely have a lot in common. :) Hogwarts, London, and France are at the top of my list. (I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter, Infernal Devices, and Anna!) Great post!

@Karen: HA! That's funny! I don't think I've ever read a travel book, other than one my mom bought me before our trip to Hawaii for my high school graduation. I sadly travel very little *pout*

@Brooke: YAY! Great minds!!! :)
