Top Ten Places Books Made Me Want to Visit

1. Hogwarts (Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling) – Duh! And with the theme park in Florida, this can actually happen!

2. Middle-Earth (The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien – And if we take a trip to New Zealand, this can happen too!

3. Westeros (A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin) – Dorne is too hot and the Wall is too freaking cold, the Vale doesn’t sound very hospitable and King’s Landing sounds like a good place to slum it, but the rest of it sounds like a good adventure.

4. the Inkworld (Inkheart series by Cornelia Funke) – Fairies, nymphs, and all sorts of creatures you’ve never even heard of! The Wayless Wood, Ombra, the Castle of Night–well, maybe not the Castle of Night…

5. London – No specific book for this one, but I’d be happiest visiting Victorian London, with fog and gaslights, when you could be sharing the streets with Count Dracula or Sherlock Holmes. Sounds pretty cool.

6. the Fire Swamp (The Princess Bride by William Goldman) – Call me crazy, but this sounds like fun! Who doesn’t want to dodge quicksand and wrestle giant rats?

7. the Dancing Glade (Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier) – More fairies, but also dwarves, Night People, enchanted animals, the Witch of the Wood…sure, the Otherworld has its dangers, but it sounds amazing!

8. Sevenwaters (Sevenwaters series by Juliet Marillier) – I feel like I’ve been living there this year, having just finished the series. The forest, the lake, the druids, the Fair Folk…maybe I could find that particular birch tree, or Finbar’s glade…

9. Opera Garnier – All right, fine, maybe I really want to go there purely to see the opera house–oh, who am I kidding? I want to go snooping where I don’t belong, all the way down in the lowest cellars in search of the Phantom’s lair!

10. Camelot – You’re looking at a major Arthurholic, so why wouldn’t I want to see the hub of his kingdom?
