Top Ten Tuesday #51: Places Mentioned In Books That I’d Like to Visit

February 26, 2019: Places Mentioned In Books That I’d Like to Visit

Oh, I love this topic! There are sooo many places that I could list. (In fact, I could probably come up with just 10 places in Middle-Earth alone, but that’s a list for another time.) Here are simply a handful of places from books I wish I could visit.

Five Places I Wish I Could Visit

  1. Middle Earth – EdorasThe Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien – I would love to visit the golden hall as the Rohirrim are by far the most interesting of the races of men.
  2. Middle Earth – RivendellThe Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien – Since I am named after one of the Rivendell elves I would like to visit the home of Elrond too. Plus the movie really made Rivedell seem like a paradise.Rivendell
  3. The OtherworldThe Song of Albion Trilogy by Stephen R Lawhead – Ever since I was a teenager the otherworld as described in the Lawhead books has captured my imagination. Imagine a place so beautiful that you would weep to see it.
  4. Os AltaShadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo – Admittedly the fact that I’m reading the series right now might have something to do with this. But the shining city on a hill with it’s golden domes just sounds intriguing.Os Alta
  5. NocturneThe Fourth Talisman Series by Kat Ross – In this world of Solis/Nocturne half the world is always in day the other in night. The deep night forests of Nocturne sound stunning and peaceful.

Okay, I only had time to do five, but there are more, many, many more I could choose. I almost added the Oasis from Ready Player One and Meridian from the comic books of the same name.  If you could travel to a place from a book where would you go?

Top Ten Tuesday #50: Books I Love that need more love on Goodreads

Ten Books That Need More LoveFebruary 19, 2019: Books I LOVED with Fewer than 2,000 Ratings on Goodreads

I did a similar topic for Top Ten Tuesday back in Top Ten Tuesday #6. So I’m going to pick a list of ten books that didn’t make that first list. In fact, I narrowed down my list even more to books with under 100 ratings on Goodreads.

Ten Books That Need More Love:

  1. You Wouldn’t Believe Me If I Told You – A personal friend of mine wrote this pseudo-memoir/ autobiography of her mother, and wow, it’s powerful.
  2. Rags and Ruins– A fantastic read! A fantasy book that turns troupes on their heads. Read my review.
  3. The Last Treasure of Ancient England – I know that the phase of boarding school stories may be past, but this one is worth a read for it’s inventive “treasure”. Read my review.
  4. Era of Undying – I just recently read this story and again it’s the fact that it’s so inventive that makes it worthy of a read. It’s a little bit like Avatar the Last Airbender meets Torchwood Miracle Day with hints of Greek mythology thrown in. Read my review.
  5. Clod Makes a Friend – I know I’ve raved and raved and raved about this book. That’s because it really is that GOOD. If you want a great middle grade read pick up Clod Makes A Friend because it will not disappoint.
  6. 99 Days – I still need to write a review of this one. But it was definitely the book of the year for 2017. A very interesting fantasy book that asked deep questions about what a life is worth.
  7. The Waterfall Traveler – A great fantasy book that I remember I couldn’t put down. The only reason it wasn’t five-stars was because of a unnecessary love triangle. Read my review.
  8. Empty Threat – An absolute book lovers treat. If you’ve ever wondered if you could go into the story and change it, this book is for you.
  9. Richard’s Story – Part of the Shattered Worlds boxed set this is the story of how the modern world ended and what lead to the creation of a dystopian. A side of the stories we don’t normally get.
  10. Lettuce Grows on the Ground – This whole series of kids books it totally worth having in your library. Each book is colorful and leads wonderfully to discovering where our food comes from.

What’s a book you love than has less than 100 ratings on Goodreads? I’d love to know, so leave me a comment below.
