Happy Tuesday, book lovers! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic, thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl, is Bookish Worlds I’d Want/Not Want to Live In. Being the positive person I am, I’m primarily sticking with the want side of that equation, but I’ve also thrown in a few for the not want side, just for contrast—and because there are some worlds I could think of that I really am glad I don’t live in!
Bookish Worlds I Want to Live In
My first two offerings were no-brainers. I spent many of my childhood years wishing I could live in either of these worlds:
These other books are worlds I could happily spend my time in.
The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay is set in England in a beautiful home where you can dress the part of an Austen character and fully immerse yourself in Regency life. Yes, please!
A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White takes place in Cornwall, England, where the main character has the task of putting Peter Holstein’s library in order. Notwithstanding Rosemary’s shock when she first sees the library, I can just smell the books!
The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller is set in the Regency period, partly in London and partly on a country estate. Regency life at its sweetest!
Bookish Worlds I Don’t Want to Live In
Annabel Lee by Mike Nappa tells the story of the eponymous Annabel Lee, who is secreted away in an underground bunker for her own safety. Not for me, thank you! Although, if there was a power supply and I could recharge my Kindle I might be good for a while… 😉
