Today’s Topic is: Places In Books I’d Love to Live
Ahh what an amazing topic!!! ❤ This is going to be fun!
1.) Hogwarts – Harry Potter
Okay, but honestly who wouldn’t want to live in Hogwarts? *lol* I’m still waiting for my letter, because this is THE SCHOOL for me! All the magic and the fact that this castle always changes, not to mention that they teach magic in there! I SO want to live in one of those Gryffindor dorm rooms and I want to eat the amazing food! ❤
2.) Velaris – A Court of Thorns and Roses
I think everyone who read ACOTAR fell in love with this city! It sounds so beautiful and great, I’d love to wander through the streets and to eat in one of all those intriguing restaurants. The fact that it’s at the sea and apparently has a warm climate only makes this even more appealing! Hey Lucien, can I move into that apartment with you? *lol*
3.) Cabeswater/Monmouth Manufacturing/The Barns – The Raven Cycle
Is there a more magical and enchanting place than Cabeswater? I don’t think so! It sounds like such a great place to be and to be honest I wouldn’t mind staying at any of the many places that are mentioned in „The Raven Cycle“. No matter if it’s Monmouth Manufacturing (who wouldn’t want to live in an old factory building and be roomies with the Raven Boys?), The Barns (gosh all the awesome things Ronan created!!!) or 300 Fox Way (Blue’s funny and crazy psychic family!) all those locations would be amazing! ❤
4.) The London Insitute – Shadowhunter Series
I love London and I’m a huge fan of the Shadowhunter Series. 😀 So there are already two good reasons why I’d want to live in the London Institute. 😉 Aside from that it’s also a place with a lot of history and charm. Also let’s not forget that Tessa, Will and Jem and all their friends and their entire family lived there. Just to be able to pick up one of Wills old books with his handwritten notes in it would already be so satisfying. *lol*
5.) The Harbour – The Starless Sea
I’m afraid Erin Morgenstern ruined me with her books! *lol* The mere idea of „The Harbour“ is such a great one that I wish I could actually live there. I mean seriously! It was basically described as some sort of subwaystation with millions of books and thousands of different rooms that all lead somewhere! You never know where you’ll get once you open one of those doors and a curious fox like me probably could get lost in there. Also the cozy atmosphere! Lots of cats and a fireplace! Ahh where is my door to the harbour? XD
6.) Jav & Stef’s flat – A Charm of Finches
This is a totally selfish choice because I love Jav and Stef and their home sounded so warm and comfortable! If I’d be friends with them I’d just crash on their couch and watch those two lovebirds being all sweet while they cook dinner! *lol* And well, of course I’d eat dinner with them too because I’m sure it would be delicous! XD
7.) The Night Circus
And here we go with another Erin Morgenstern book! 😉 The Night Circus was such a great book and I was totally mesmerized by its beauty. The details Erin wrote out for every single tent and it’s purpose, the magic of a wandering circus, the sweets and all the excitement. Ahh to be a part of this and to live with the circus would be so amazing! 😀
8.) Elfhame – The Folk of the Air
I suppose this choice is purely based on homesickness. *lol* But I AM a faerie after all and Elfhame is sort of … well, my home. ;-P I miss those islands and the green hill. And of course I miss Jude and Cardan. XD It’s about time I read the last book! Anyway! Revels, dancing, eating, cavorting, flirting, being in the company of beautiful faeries, trying not to fall for a bargain you’ll regret, watching your back so no one will stab you… Ahh, home sweet home! What’s not to love? *lol*
9.) Camp Half-Blood – Percy Jackson
After reading so many Percy Jackson books I can say that to live at Camp Half-Blood sounds like fun. XD I have no idea in which cabin I’d be sorted but as long as I’d be with my half-siblings it would be okay. 😀 To sit around the campfire at night and to sing songs like „This Land is Mino’s Land“ sounds like a good time, especially after a long day that was full of capture the flag. *lol*
10.) Skarmouth – The Scorpio Races
Okay, admittedly for most people this island wouldn’t be appealing but for me it somehow is? I dunno why, but Maggie Stiefvater wrote this place so well that I could feel the cold wind on my skin and smell the salty ocean breeze! The most interesting thing about Skarmouth are the water horses though! Such beautiful, powerful and frightenting creatures! ❤ I’d love to live on that island just to see them!
Did you read any of the books I mentioned and did you fall in love with those places too? At which bookish places would you love to live and why? Do we have some in common? Is there a bookish place I should definitely read about?
Talk to me and let me know!
And as always try to stay healthy and safe!
