Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's prompt is:

Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want to Visit

Let's just jump in, shall we?

10. Paris from 
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I didn't love this book, but I did seriously crave some  baguettes and a visit to the Arc de Triomphe when I finished.

9. Rivendell from
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
The movie let me envision it in greater detail, but I still wish I could see it for myself.

8. Gabriel's Keep from
Archangel by Sharon Shinn
The white marble walls and the constant background singing make this place sound both calm and luxurious.

7. The Little Palace Where the Grisha Train from
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
This place is just rad.  I loved seeing it in my head.

6. The Circus from
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
This magical, mystical place was the highlight of this whole book.

5. Paris from
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I realize this book doesn't highlight the grandeur of Paris, but it's vividness and history still make me want to go there.

4. Pemberly from
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
It's where Elizabeth Bennett fell in love with Fitzwilliam Darcy.  Need I say more?

3. The Paris Opera House from
The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
I can't tell you how badly I want to explore this building in search of secret lairs.  (Also, seeing as this is the third time Paris has appeared on this list, apparently I really want to go to Paris.)

2. Jay Gatsby's Mansion from
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I'd love to experience once of his over-the-top, insane parties.

1. Hogwarts from
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
A part of me thinks I should have made "Hogwarts" the answer to all ten of these, because duh.

What book locations do you want to visit?


  1. Good ones! I wish I had put The Night Circus on my list. You only want to see Rivendell? I want to see it all! I completely forgot about Hogwarts! Argh!

    1. Well the Shire and the White City would be cool, but I'd pass on Mordor. :)
