Bookish Places I'd Like to Visit

Something that makes a good book, for me at least, is a compelling setting, and though I am mostly a character-driven reader, some places are so well illustrated, they are almost a character in the story as well. Some are real, some I wish were real and some I wouldn't want to go near! What are some of your favorite bookish settings? Are they real or imagined? Here are some of mine and the books which inspired them.

Hogwarts OBVIOUSLY! and Hogsmeade - The Harry Potter Books by J.K. Rowling

Pemberly - Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Victorian England - Tasha Alexander and Charles Finch Books

Manhattan in the 1920s - The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Rivendell and the Shire - Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien
