Top Ten Tuesday - Settings I'd Love to See More Often

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  This week's Top Ten list is about Settings I Want to See More Often (or at all).  I'm sure there are plenty of books that are set in these locations/time periods but I just want some more in my reading life!

1.  Cornwall - I love Rosamunde Pilcher's books that are set in Cornwall but I haven't found many other authors who have set books there.

2.  Prince Edward Island, Canada - I fell in love with Prince Edward Island through L.M. Montgomery's books and I'd love to see more of the island.

3.  Australia - I think I've only read one book set in Australia and I was disappointed by how little the setting affected the story.  I have several books set in Australia on my TBR but have yet to get to them.

4.  Wales - I don't think I've ever read a book set in Wales but I'd really like to find one.

5.  Greece - I'm fascinated by the history of the country and how it intertwines with the present. 

6.  Appalachian Mountains/Great Smoky Mountains National Park - I love this area and there is so much bizarre history intertwined with both the trail and the mountains that I'd love to see it more often in books

7.  Charleston, South Carolina - I love Charleston and love books that are set there.  Even though I have several series that take place here I always want more!

8.  New Orleans, Louisiana - Pretty much same as above

9.  World War II Hollywood - While I don't really love war stories I love books set during WWI or WWII that take place on the homefront.  I'd love to see one that took place during the war in Hollywood

10.  Regular everyday France - I've read a number of books where people are wandering through France for whatever reason but only a couple about people who live fairly normal lives in France or people who don't live in France but have family who live in France and are visiting them.  I like seeing the country in a more homey kind of way. 

What settings would you like to see more often?


  1. I'd like to see more horror and apocalypse books set in Australia. I've read a few with mixed results! I've read a lot of urban fantasy set in New Orleans.

  2. New Orleans! I woukd love to read more stories set in NOLA. 👍✨

  3. France is a great setting, and Greece- I'd love to see more of Greece. Same with Cornwall.

  4. I'd love to see more of all those settings. You made some great choices.

  5. Yes! Australia, Wales, and Appalachia all really appeal to me. Jane Harper is a great Australian author whose mysteries feature the Australian landscape quite a lot. I've enjoyed all three of her novels.

    Happy TTT!

  6. All great settings. I have read some wonderful Australian settings but the problem is often they are not published in USA. I have just decided to reread The Shell Seekers via audio just today, love Cornwall too.

  7. I lived in Charleston and can certainly appreciate book settings there. If I could choose, I'd love to see more settings in the 50's or 60's, or romances in amusement parks. That would be fun. Hugs, RO
