TTT: Bookish destinations


Hi Munchworms!

This week’s topic for The Broke and the Bookish‘s Top Ten Tuesday is “Bookish settings you’d want to visit.”

If it’s about settings, I’d honestly want to see it all. Hogwarts in all its glory, every Shadowhunter Academy out there. Not to mention have a whole road trip through Prythian! How I’d love to visit The Night Court…

But, something that’s also on my mind while thinking about this, are the settings that I’d actually can visit! Here’s my current top three!

First of, Daughter of Smoke & Bone has definitely made me curious about Prague. I would love to go there one day and stand on the Charles Bridge! Too bad Poison Kitchen doesn’t exist, because I’d definitely take a look in there as well.

A lot of Christmas romances I came across in the last couple of years are set in New York. With my mom and brother going there during Christmas break, it’s safe to say I’m jealous. And not just a tad little bit either. I’d love to go to New York, especially at the end of the year!

Of course, Hogwarts can’t not be on this list. I haven’t been to Alnwick Castle yet and Gloucester Cathedral is also on my list of bookish settings that I’d love to visit one day!

What is THE fictional place that you want to visit?

  1. New York is a pretty cool place to visit. I have been there twice now.

    Hmm…what is THE fictional place I’d want to visit? Middle Earth, maybe. Now for real bookish locations, probably London, and Scotland.

    1. So jealous. One day I’ll go there as well, one day.

      Middle Earth definitely seems like a worthwhile destination!
      I’m hoping to go to Scotland next year. And London as well since I didn’t get to go this year and it’s supposed to be my yearly thing.


    2. For New York, just plan to go during Book Expo. You can spend some time exploring the city and also go home with a few ARCs. Plus, if we are both at Book Expo together then we could probably meet up.

    3. I’ve put it on my “Check it out!”-list. No clue yet on where in the world I’ll be going during 2018; I think it’s a bit too soon financially to head to the US but a girl can hope. Maybe in ’19.


    1. Thank you!
      Haha, we all have our own favorites. Seeing Velaris would be amazing. But in the end, I’d like to see all the courts and then make my pick of a favorite. You never know it might change!


  2. I love that you included some of the places you can actually visit. After getting a bit sad for not being able to ever visit the places included on my list, I started listing off some others which I CAN go to as well! Like, we could go to Hogwarts and Universal Studios. That’s upon our reach!
    Great post!

  3. I love your list! I want to go to Prague because of Daughter of Smoke & Bone as well, hahah! I’d also LOVE to visit London, I’ve already been there once (for a day) but I’d love to go back and visit places from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. 🙂

    1. Thank you!
      I usually go to London every year, haha. This year is the first time in five years I’m skipping – finances aren’t allowing it, boo. 😦 Normally I would go to YALC over the Summer but that’ll probably not happen either. Hopefully at the end of next year!
      Definitely something I need to do as well. I’ve done all the “typical” stuff in London, I’ve also done a lot of the more hidden (food) markets and stuff. But I really want a bookish London-trip next time – visiting places from books and discover some small bookstores!


    1. It does, doesn’t it? Just reading that book had me picturing a magical city. Looking up actual pictures of it just makes me want to go there even more.
      NY has always been a dream of mine – which is why I’m pretty much turning green every time I think of my mom and brother heading there in two weeks while I’m stuck in Belgium, haha.

  4. Though I don’t think I’d like to live there, visiting New York is definitely one of those “bucket list” places I’d love to someday see. And who knows! It’s in the States, so perhaps I will get there. 🙂

    1. I’m dreaming of a city-hopping trip in a few years, haha. I really want to do a ton of the largest cities in the U.S. but it isn’t cheap. I have a loooot of money to save up before it’ll ever be possible.
