Top Five Wednesdays started on Goodreads back in 2013. At the beginning of every month Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes posts a topic for each Wednesday and bloggers, vloggers and overall book fans are encouraged to respond with their top five.
This week is top five settings you want to see more of. Let me know what you think in the comments!
Ever since watching and reading Outlander I’ve become obsessed with Scotland. It’s history is rich and it’s beautiful, I just want to see and read more of it. The highlands, the old castles, men in kilts, sigh. Let me know if you know any books set in Scotland that I should get my hands on.
2. The Moon
I loved, loved, loved The Lunar Chronicles. I want more books set on the moon, and not in an astronaut type of way—like The Martian—but in a people living and colonizing there type of way.
3. Elizabethan England
This is one of my all time favorite time periods. I love everything about it—the politics, the manners, the clothing. I haven’t seen a lot of young adult books set in this period and that’s what I really want.
4. Early 1800s England
Again, another one of my all time favorite time periods. I’m obsessed with Jane Austen and the late 1700s to early 1800s is when all her books take place. I know there’s stuff out there and I just have to find it.
I live in Massachusetts so I can’t help but want books to be set in my home state. I’ve written multiple pieces of short fiction and they’ve all been set in Mass, and I know my one-day novel probably will be too. Let me know if you’ve ready any books set in Mass, I’d love to read them.
