Hey, readers and friends! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday February 26 2019 edition lets us go on a bit of an armchair adventure.
My list today isn’t unique in that I feature fantasy worlds that aren’t a reality, which I kind of feel like that’s more along the lines of what this prompt is calling for. I’m just not that imaginative, I guess. Especially when it comes to fantasy worlds; they’re not really my cup of tea nor is the genre in general. So, because of this, my list is realistic in that I could visit these places. But in all likelihood? Most I’ll never see. Because that’s just the reality of it. (Still, let’s never say never. *smile*)
Nonetheless, I can visit them through these worlds, and oh my! What a world they paint.
Here’s we go! Let’s go on an armchair adventure (or two). Forgive the graphics/white balance/grainy photos today. I’ll again blame the procrastinator in me.

1: 221 B Baker Street from Sherlock Holmes | I’ve never read a single Sherlock Holmes book, but given the films or TV series I have seen in this setting, it’s safe to say that visiting this place would be cool. Amazon | Goodreads
2 & 3: Beast’s Castle and Belle’s Library from Beauty and the Beast | This one is obvious! Also, maybe I do have more “fantasy” places on my list that I realized…! Rent or Buy on Amazon Video (2017) | Buy on Amazon Video (1991) | Amazon (Illustrated Edition) | Goodreads
4: England a la My Lady Jane | Visiting England is a wish list dream of mine, but if I were to visit England in a time period during which beheadings were considered entertainment (why!?), I feel like the My Lady Jane world would be the way to go. Amazon | Goodreads
6: Guernsey Island from The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society | Who wouldn’t want to visit this island and meet all of these lovely people? They’re like the best friends we never knew we needed. Amazon | Goodreads
NETFLIX REVIEW | The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society – Hope and Heart
7: Madam Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality from Etiquette and Espionage | This series has been on my shelf for quite some time, and still I haven’t read it. But it sounds fun! Amazon | Goodreads
11: Prince Edward Island from (Anne of Green Gables) Red Door Inn | Sadly, I don’t think I’ve ever read the ‘Anne’ books. (I know.) But I do love this place thanks to the Sullivan adaptations of the books, and Liz Johnson’s lovely ‘Red Door’ series! Amazon | Goodreads
12: Sherwood Forest from (Sherwood*) Robin Hood | This one is an odd addition considering a. I haven’t read Meghan’s Sherwood novel, but given that I love the Sherwood Forest world in BBC’s Robin Hood, I’m hopeful I’d enjoy this one! Amazon | Goodreads | Own on DVD (BBC series)
(*Yes, the book in the photo is Hunted. It’s all I currently own of Meagan’s fairy tale re-tellings!)
