Top Ten Places Books have made me want to Visit

Now this is a subject I feel passion about! Best part of it is that it can be real or (bum bum bum) FICTIONAL!!!!
  1. Middle Earth- Read Lord of the Rings and oh my I just want to go there! The movies' beautiful scenery doesn't help my longing. 
  2. England- All of Jane Austen's novels and any other novels set there. I want to go there so bad!!!!!!!
  3. Oz- From of course The Wonderful Wizard of Oz series. Those were my favorites as a kid! 
  4. Hogwarts- From the Harry Potter series. :)
  5. Redwall, Salamandastron, ect- From Brian Jacques's Redwall series Another favorite from when I was young. 
  6. Scotland- From G.A. Henty's In Freedom's Cause
  7. Botswana- From The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
  8. Mary Poppin Land- Is that a place? Just wherever Mary Poppins goes... it's always amazing! 
  9. Narnia- From C.S. Lewi's Chronicles of Narnia
  10. Neverland- From J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan. I'd never have to grow up! Wishful thinking I know. However, growing up I must do, much as I do not want to. On a more serious note, I think a serious problem with our society is people never wanting to grow up. Thoughts on that?
So many of these are fictional... obviously I'm not fond of reality. ;)

  1. HOGWARTS! How in the world could I forget that. STUPID ME.

    And Botswana too! I love those books.
    (Though frankly, I don't think I'd want to be going anywhere in Africa now with all the Ebola freakouts, but once that's taken care of, I'd love to go!)

    1. Yeah... I agree. Once Ebola has died down then we take the trip! ;)

  2. Botswana! Wish I'd thought of that as I've just finished reading the latest Ladies Detective Agency book.

    And Hogwarts too, that's definitely one that made my list :D

  4. I should have listed Neverland, but it would have felt a little like cheating since I haven't read the book yet.

  11. Great list! I read Mary Poppins last year and just didn't connect with it for some reason. I'm hoping I'll have better luck with the 2nd. I'm very much looking forward to reading Peter Pan though. England, Middle Earth, Hogwarts and Narnia definitely sound like a fun trip! The closest I've gotten is the Hogwarts at Universal in Orlando!
