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, Tennessee – The 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 District– London 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.
Ansel-by-the-Sea, Maine – Up From the Sea – I adore the coast of Maine, so I totally fell for this coastal island and its’ simple grandeur.
1950’s Oxford – Becoming 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 Café – Brunch 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.
Edenbrooke – Edenbrooke – Written like a third character, this estate sounds absolutely delightful and lovely.
Bookends – The Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts – All readers love a nice, cozy bookshop. Especially one as charming and accepting as this one.
