Why, hello there fellow bookworms. It’s a new week which means more book meme fun. Top Ten Tuesday July 23 lets us travel.
That Artsy Reader Girl | July 23: Settings I’d Like to See More Of (Or At All)
Who else here loves armchair adventures? I know I sure do! Maybe it’s because I never travel or perhaps it’s just the joy of visiting so many places through the power of a good fictional story. Whatever the correct answer is, I never tire of visiting fun places in books – even those inside the U.S. can be so fun.
Today instead of trying to wrack my brain for settings I’d like to see more of (which would probably require I research things via Goodreads, and try and consider whether or not the setting has been overused), I decided to tweak the topic. Just a little bit. I’m featuring books from my shelf with settings that I haven’t yet read but am excited to discover. (Even if I’ve already visited them in other novels.)
With that said, let’s grab our passport, and collect those stamps.

1: 1900s New York, New York, A Dangerous Legacy (Elizabeth Camden) | Once I was a big fan of Elizabeth’s historical novels. Her books were one of the few that really “work” for my reader brain as historical fiction. While I still except to have that same feeling, it’s been a long time since I read anything by her. Amazon | Goodreads
2: Alaska, Under the Northern Lights (S.C. Stephens) | A recent addition to my shelf, this one sounds interesting, plus it’s set in the wild beauty of Alaska. My all-time favorite novel set in Alaska is still Submerged by Dani Pettrey, but I’m always game for finding additional favorites. Amazon | Goodreads
4 & 5: Ireland, Love and Luck (Jenna Evans Welch) and Now a Major Motion Picture (Cori McCarthy) | Never been to Ireland – or anywhere really cool, but it looks beautiful. ‘Luck’ Amazon | Goodreads ● ‘Picture’ Amazon | Goodreads
8: Scotland, Prince Charming (Rachel Hawkins) | I had this book back when it was titled Royals, saw it talked up with its re-brand, and added it to my shelf again because it’s supposed to be all things cute… which I’m a fan of. Amazon | Goodreads
