Top Ten Tuesday: Settings I Want More Of

Well hello there! Welcome back!

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and Bookish that I participate in on a weekly basis. This week the theme is Top Ten Settings I’d Like to Read More Of.  I’m not sure why, but this was a difficult list for me to create. But I did finally manage it! There are probably tons of books with these settings out there but I just need to find and read them!

So here we go:

1. London: Be it historical or contemporary I love books set in London. Really, I’ll take stories set anywhere in the UK! I’m a total Anglophile and proud of it!London

2. Boarding Schools: If your book is set in a boarding school chances are I’ll pick it up. I just love the idea of being away from home and kind of on your own in a new place.

3. Under the sea: I’ve only read a few mermaid novels, but I think I could really get used to this genre.

4. Amish Country: The Amish are completely fascinating and I am always up for a story set in this community.AmishCountry

5. Colonial America: As a history major in college American colonial history has always intrigued me.  Give me more of this!

6. Florida: Who doesn’t want more books set where they live? It’s fun to read about places you’re familiar with!

7. Wild West Space: Like my beloved Firefly. I like to believe that the future is actually more like the wild west with space travel and Chinese curse words.

Firefly8. Fairy Tale Lands: Fairy tale retellings are one of my favorite genres so I will gladly accept any novels set in fairy tale lands!

9. Steampunk worlds: I think I just need to read more YA steampunk novels because I know they’re out there. Although I love this genre I think I prefer a mild steampunk setting to a high one.

10. Futuristic dystopian societies: I know this sounds super trendy, and some people may be over dystopian fiction, but I sincerely love this setting and have since I read A Handmaid’s Tale in high school. More YA dystopia!

So there you have it! My nerdiness has been revealed now that you know I want more Amish, steampunk and mermaid themed settings in books! My husband will laugh at me if he reads this post…haha

Am I the only nerd out there or are some of these settings that you’d like to read more of?

  1. Yes to boarding schools, both adult and ya. It’s such a fun world to read about, it doesn’t hurt that I always wanted to attend one. The closest I ever got was freshman dorms in college.

  2. Good list, I’d love to see stories set under the sea, in fairytale worlds, and futuristic dystopians. I also love your reference to Firefly.

  3. You just got me insanely interested in finding a book in and Amish setting. *asks twitter* Have you read any Amish YA? I think that would be super interesting! Great list!

  4. Uh, I would read anything set in wild west space! When I was reading the Chaos Walking trilogy I kept picturing Firefly and it totally made me excited! Great list; love how there are some different settings on here!

  5. Great list – 3 of them are on mine as well (London, Boarding Schools, & Under Sea). I’ve always been interested in reading some Amish novels, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I know I have some of those free ones on my kindle. And I love that you added Wild West Space to your list & are spreading some Firefly love!

    My Top 10

  6. Great list. I’ve read a few books that take place in Amish country, and it’s really interesting to see how different their world is. And I totally agree about Wild West space & Firefly!

    Here’s my TTT
