Top Ten Tuesday: Books Set In a Place I’d Love to Visit (real places or fictional)


Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the theme is Books Set In a Place I’d Love to Visit (real places or fictional). This is a topic that I feel like I done recently but it is actually a couple of years ago now! So this week I am going to share some books set in places that we plan to visit soon.

We are planning a weekend away in Adelaide for my brother's 40th birthday soon.

Mix Tape by Jane Sanderson (review) - This book is set in both Adelaide and Sheffield in the UK, which is a place I lived in for four years back in the late 1990s.

At some point this year I need to go to Perth to see the family over there

Taking a Chance by Deborah Burrows (review) - Deborah Burrows wrote a couple of books set in war time Perth!

We have a big trip planned for the end of the years where we will start in The Netherlands to see my brother in law and his family.

Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach - we won't be there for Tulip season but still

The Winter Dress by Lauren Chater - recently bought this.

From there we will go to Northern France -We don't know exactly where we are going to be staying so I am choosing the following two locations. What we do know is that there will definitely be some Normandy beaches experiences. After that we will head to Paris. Given that I only just did a French themed TTT post a couple of weeks ago,  I am going to only share one book for all of France.

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - set in St Malo

From there the plan is to head to Southern Italy.

The Postcard from Italy by Angela Petch (Review)- I was inspired to want to visit Puglia after reading this book!

The Wedding Officer by Anthony Capella - Set in Naples!

We will stop in Singapore on the way home

Tanamera by Noel Barber - I read this in my late teens or early twenties. I also read numerous other books by this author. Not sure they would stand the test of time!

The next year we are planning to spend some time in New Zealand

Chocolate Cake for Breakfast by Danielle Hawkins - Such a fun read!

And then looking even further forward we are thinking about heading to Hawaii which will include a visit to Pearl Harbour for sure.

The Lost Pearl by Emily Madden - This book is set both in Hawaii and Sydney.

I love travelling but I am always grateful to travel via the pages of a book too!

  5. I lived in Singapore so I love that you listed a book set there! I would be curious to read it! https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2022/08/top-ten-tuesday-literary-escapes.html

  6. So many wonderful plans! I hope you enjoy all of your travels.

  7. My family largely goes to Southern France when we visit, so I'd love to go and see more of Northern France as I've not really done much, though I do love Paris. I went to Naples about a decade or so ago on a school trip but I would love to go back!

  8. Sounds like you have some awesome travel plans in place. I can't wait to hear all about the places you go and the things you see!

    I've been to Pearl Harbor. It's an interesting place to visit. And a sacred one.

    Happy TTT!

  9. Italy and the Netherlands- would love to explore both
