Top Ten Tuesday – My Favorite Book Settings

Today’s Topic: Settings I’d Like to See More Of (Or At All)

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

Sometimes settings add as much to a story as the character or plot does.  Here are a few books whose settings really stood out to me and have remained memorable.

Green Valley, TennesseeThe Winston Brothers Series – I’ve been to the Smoky Mountains and they are gorgeous. Plus, who wouldn’t want to live in the same town as all these sexy, bearded brothers?

Pemberley Pride and Prejudice – Let’s be honest, who wouldn’t fall for Darcy with a home like Pemberly to recommend him? It does seem that after seeing his family home, Elizabeth’s opinion of Darcy shifted in a positive way.

London Theater DistrictLondon Celebrities Collection – I loved getting an insider’s glimpse of this artistic scene. I’ve often wondered what working in live theater must be like.

Early HollywoodThe Girls in the Picture – I’ve long been fascinated by film history and would love to have experienced its’ beginnings with the women who helped shape the industry. My review.

Ansel-by-the-Sea, MaineUp From the Sea – I adore the coast of Maine, so I totally fell for this coastal island and its’ simple grandeur.

Green GablesMarilla of Green Gables – This setting seems so familiar thanks to Anne’s love for it. But I really loved seeing its’ origins through Marilla’s eyes. My review.

1950’s OxfordBecoming Mrs. Lewis – I can’t imagine many people would turn down the opportunity to visit Oxford during the time of C.S. Lewis, Tolkien and the other Inklings.

Isle of Kerrerra Scotland A Bound Heart – I think I would be just as sad as Magnus and Lark at having to leave this misty, romantic Scottish island.

The Bittersweet CaféBrunch at the Bittersweet Café – Look, just because I hate to cook doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate good food. This café is exactly the type of place I would love to visit in real life.

EdenbrookeEdenbrooke – Written like a third character, this estate sounds absolutely delightful and lovely.

BookendsThe Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts – All readers love a nice, cozy bookshop. Especially one as charming and accepting as this one.

  1. I really liked Marilla of Green Gables as well. I wonder if anyone will ever write a story based there after Anne grew up and moved away? I believe one of the books said that the little boy Marilla and Anne raised after Marilla’s relative died eventually inherited it?!

    My TTT.

    1. You should check out Beauty and the Mustache first. It’s the intro into the series and it has one of my favorite heroes ever. Forewarning though, these are not clean reads.
