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
Manhattan in the 1920s - The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Rivendell and the Shire - Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien
Neverland - Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
Saltkrokan - Novels by Astrid Lindgren
