Top Ten Places Books Make Me Want To Visit

1. Hogwarts from The Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling
No surprises here. I would expect nearly everyone's list to contain Hogwarts because it's the magical place that has become synonymous to everyone's childhood. Who doesn't want to go to a magic school and hang out with the coolest witches and wizards - oh, and play quidditch!

2. Narnia from The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis
It's kind of hard not to resist a place that's magically hiding behind your closet, especially with it being such a beautiful, expansive world. Aslan wait for me! 

3. Fairyland from The Fairyland Series by Catherynne M. Valente
This is a new world but one I've fallen in love with this year. It's such a cute place filled with amazing creatures, of all whom I want to be friends with. 

4. England during the Tudor Times (from The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory) 
Ok, this is borderline dangerous cause I could fall seriously sick in a matter of minutes. I'm talking more about the palace and having a position where I'm not being trampled on. Maybe meet King Henry VIII but without risk of being beheaded. 

5. Neverland from Peter Pan by J.M Barrie 
There's a reason this is my favourite classic. I think Neverland has such an attractive quality because you don't seem to age whilst living on the island - actually perfect. 

6. Camp Half Blood from The Percy Jackon Series by Rick Riordan 
Yep, I'm ready to learn that I have secret powers and that one of my parents is actually an immortal. Seriously, the time has come.

7. Wonderland from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty weird myself so I see Wonderland as being a place where I could just be whacky and not be judged for it. I would also love to be friends with the Mad Hatter, but this is more to do with Johnny Depp playing him in the Tim Burton version.

8. Paris from various novels (of which I don't remember lol)
The city of love, and the setting for numerous novels. It just seems like a sweet and fairy-tale like place, perfect for summer vacation.

9. Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl 
It's chocolate. What else can I say?

10. Manhattan/Upper East Side from The Gossip Girl Series by Cecily von Ziegesar
Say hello to climbing up the social ranks and befriending Blaire Wardolf and Chuck Bass. Also because the US is one of the places I really do want to travel to. 

Which Places Do You Want To Go To?


  1. Harry Potter: OF COURSE :D
    Fairyland is such a whimsical place and I want a book-loving Wyvern of my own.
    England during Tudor era, yes! I want to see Anne Boleyn and the court, but without all the danger.
    Wonderland, but again, without the danger. I'd rather not end up in an 'OFF WITH HER HEAD' situation :p

    1. Yes, perfect description for Fairyland!! And England during Tudor Era is so fascinating, even if it's dangerous - as well as Wonderland.

      Thanks for reading!
