Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was settings I’d like to see more of.

Whether a book’s setting is an actual physical place or just an overall feeling I got from the story, sometimes place really does matter. I would love suggestions for some of my favorites, too— I know they’re out there!

♥ college (Emergency Contact)
♥ university (Giant Days)
♥ a dream world (Neverworld Wake)
♥ a fan convention (Geekerella)
♥ historic New England (The Witch of Willow Hall)

♥ ‘home is wherever we make it’ (Station Eleven)
♥ an in-between place (What Should Be Wild)
♥ an island honeymoon (The Unhoneymooners)
♥ a library (The Library of Ever)
♥ a location that’s also a character (Broken Monsters)

♥ Los Angeles as a teen (If I’m Being Honest)
♥ Los Angeles as an adult (The Proposal)
♥ a contemporary office (Attachments)
♥ a historical office (I Went to Vassar for This?)
♥ ‘oops we’re both stuck here together and have to pretend to be a couple’ (Lip Lock)

  1. Ahh what a great list of settings! I’d love to see more books set in college too, I need to find more of these. And a library YAY! Such a great setting, we need all the books set in libraries :D

  2. These are some great picks! Plus, your setup is so lovely. Also, I don’t think I’ve ever really read a historical office based setting SO I’M GOING TO HAVE TO FIX THAT and, of course, read “I Went to Vassar for This?” because, well, SIGN ME UP.


    1. Yes! It’s such an oddly specific setting that I seem to pick up on—I remember the few office scenes in The Bell Jar more than the rest of the book and have The Best of Everything on my tbr. Vassar is a book that I randomly came across in high school and still love ten years later. I hope you enjoy it!
