TTT #89 | Settings I’d Like to See More Of

We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is Settings I’d Like to See More Of. And I have to say, this is a hard one! I’m not sure if I’ll make it to 10. This topic also reminded me of another topic we did a while ago, Favorite Settings and I realized I only made it to 8 on that one. So we’ll see where we land today! Let’s get into it.

1.University

I love reading books that are set at Uni. But I’ve only read a handful and haven’t found much more. There probably are quite some NA books set at university, but I’m usually not that interested in those romance like stories. Fangirl is probably my favorite university book and I instantly fell in love with all of it but also the setting.

2.Magical University 

What could be better than a university? A magical university! I love reading about magic school, but I think it would be so much cooler if they go to an university afterwards and learn advanced magic. The age of the characters could give the story a different focus and I’m all here for it. I just really love this idea, and while I didn’t like The Magicians, I still think the idea could be a great one.

3.Latin America

I realized that I read very few to none books set in Latin America. Especially a fantasy set there would be great. Lately I feel like there have been quite some books set in Asia, and of course the UK and the USA are always over represented. But I never hear anyone about Latin America and I think that setting could be so so cool.

4.North or South Pole

Another setting I haven’t read about it. I feel like this would probably be one with scientists doing some kind of research on one of the poles. This could be so interesting! Have you ever read a book set on either the North or the South Pole, let me know in the comments!

5.Underwater World

How could would this be? I enjoyed Kill a Kingdom and especially the parts where they are underwater. I get that this might be hard to imagine but I think a great author could do some really great stuff with this. The underwater world is hardly discovered so there are so many possibilities about everything down there!

6.’Modern’ Fantasy Worlds

I love reading medieval like fantasy worlds, but wouldn’t it be fun to have a fantasy world where almost everything was just like it is in our world. To have telephones and electricity could prove so helpful. I really like this idea and need some recommendations.

7.European Mainland

I have read some European stories but most have been set in the UK. It would be great to read some books set in France or Italy or Norway for example. I really like the idea to be able to visit some of the settings in my favorite books. And it would be a great excuse to visit all those countries!

8.Another Planet

I’ve come to really enjoy sci-fi and like to read stories set on other planets. Wouldn’t it be fun to have some stories set on planets we actually know already 😀 But completely different planets will do as well 😉

I once again got stuck after number 8! But I think this a pretty decent list and I wouldn’t want to add anything just to add it. Which settings would you like to see more of in books?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. Universities and magical universities- totally agree. In fact any kind of magical academy/ university type setting always gets my interest for some reason. I need more European settings too. and I love underwater worlds. Have you read World of Water by James Lovegrove? I thought it was awesome.

    Also some South Pole books I’ve read that were good are The Winter Over by Matthew Iden, and Zodiac Station by Tom Harper. Both are set at remote research stations in Antarctica and are kinda mysterious/ suspenseful, if you like that kinda thing.

  2. Good choices! I agree with you about universities and magical universities. I’m currently reading a Peter Mayle novel, which is set in the South of France. If you haven’t read his work, I definitely recommend it!

  3. I love these! I had Latin America on my list, too. And sort of underwater, but I went with underwater caves.
