Top 10 Tuesday: books set in places I want to visit
Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl is hosting another week of Top Ten Tuesday. I enjoy participating each week for a couple reasons. I'm a compulsive list maker and love a good list. And, I love a connection with other readers as I wander their book blogs. This week's prompt is to share books set in places I want to visit, either real or fictional. Here goes.

FROM BOOKS I'VE READ
I'd love to visit Paris again, but specifically this bookstore, Shakespeare and Co. Missed it the first time around.
Would love to experience the culture and food of India.
Photos of the landscape draw me in - and, of course, the pubs.
I read this years ago and the use of a traveling storyteller to share the myths and history of Ireland is genius. It's SO good. Long, but good.
TRIP AROUND THE WORLD??
Or, since I'm just wishing/dreaming here, how about a trip around the world? This nonfiction look at a budget traveler is interesting.
OUTER SPACE (specifically THIS world)
I loved this trilogy of novellas and the world it conjured - I want to travel in the living spaceship!
FROM MY TBR LIST
We have friends in Edinburgh and have meant to go for years.
Two timelines, two murdered women, 1800s Scotland and current day detective, AND, time travel. (and I love Armstrong's writing)
I've talked about visiting here for years....still haven't made it.
In small town Croatia after the war with Yugoslavia, town war time secrets come out.
Exotic and a part of the world I have not seen (and the food!) This book is set in contemporary Vietnam.
Country life in the mountains (hills to me :) of the south of my own country that I'm eager to experience.
How can I never have been to New Orleans?? I MUST go! This book is set in the aftermath of Katrina.
If I had nothing but time, it might be fun to see how much it would cost to make these 9 trips (leaving out the Outer Space destination). But that's not happening. I can't wait to see where your books take you on the page!
