THE PLACES WE’LL GO! 10 PLACES I’D LIKE TO SEE WITH BOOKS AS GUIDE

by 

There’s lots of places I’d like to someday visit. I say “someday” because 95% (probably more) of the time I am content in my world. I don’t mind that I’m not an experienced traveler and I don’t mind that the trips I have been on have been to visit family. It’s life and it’s okay by me. This doesn’t mean there aren’t some places I may want to see and certainly part of this appeal is the places we visit in the fiction we read. Let’s look at a few places in books to visit.

LIST | 8 TV SITCOMS TO WATCH IF YOU LOVE NETFLIX’S ‘COUNTRY COMFORT’

I’m not one that has a passion to live (just thinking about it) in any of these places, but visiting them could certainly be fun. Some of the places on my list aren’t exotic, but as they were places I enjoyed visiting while reading the book, I did want to include them because they’re fictional worlds that transported this viewer, even if it was only in a happy reading space. Let’s do this!


10 BOOK PLACES TO VISIT


1:[THE] 1920s

This is an era I would never imagine myself living in, but for a day? It might be fun to see. This is primarily from Downton Abbey, but I’ve read books like Murder at the Flamingo and the like that makes everything seem exciting, too! Goodreads

2: CASTLE IN THE CLOUDS

This titular place seems like a fun fantasy place to visit! It’s modern, but has a kind of Agatha Christie vibe. Goodreads

3: ELLINGHAM ACADEMY (FROM TRULY DEVIOUS)

It might be fun to visit a pace like this, just as long as it’s not a haunted place! Goodreads

4: ENGLAND

This stems from books like The Runaway Princess or Geek Girl, books by Katherine Reay, and likely a million others I cannot think of! But either way, it’d be fun to visit. I feel like I’d be more of a small town visitor as opposed to someplace like London.

5: [AN] ESTATE

This I’m going to blame on TV shows like Downton Abbey or even Pemberley from Pride and Prejudice. It’d just be fun to visit some place that’s an actual, impressive estate.

6: GREECE (FROM LOVE & OLIVES)

This hasn’t ever been a place high on my list to see, but I did read this cute novel by Jenna Evans Welch and as it sounds interesting, I decided to add it! Goodreads

7: [A] KINGDOM (FROM THE BETROTHED)

This is pretty open-ended and could include many stories. I’m using The Betrothed just because it was likely the last novel I read with a kingdom in the plot. Also, I’d likely only want to spend the day in this kind of world as a: I wouldn’t want to be accused of something offensive and be sent to a dudgeon and b: I’d likely miss the modern world more than I like to think!

8: LARA JEAN’S WORLD

This is set in the contemporary world, but visiting Lara Jean (along with her gang) would just be fun. Not sure the precise “why” of it, but this is one of those books I talked about above. It just makes me happy. Goodreads

9: NANTUCKET

Blaming this on Courtney Walsh’s latest Nantucket series. Goodreads

10: PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND (FROM ANNE OF GREEN GABLES)

I’m not really interested in visiting Canada per se, however as I grew up watching Anne of Green Gables, and some of the scenery is just STUNNING. Needless to say, I feel like this would be quite a place to visit. Goodreads

  1. The 1920’s is such a fascinating era. and England is definitely on my list of places to go.

    Truly Devious was awesome.

    Pemberley for sure. I remember watching the 2005 P&P and just the Pemberley scenes- I wanted to live there.

    And Greece!! That’s one of the few places I feel like I NEED to go to someday. Crossing my fingers :)

    1. Right? Those 2005 “Pride & Prejudice” scenes are beautiful! Hopefully someday we can visit some of our dream places. Pretty sure England is because of all of the BBC or British period drama I binge watch. :D Thanks for the vsiit, Greg.

    1. I just don’t travel. Never have, so I’m usually (most of the time) okay in this mindset. But every now and then, I get moody and think it’d be fun to see some cool places. :) Thanks for the visit, Brooke.

    1. Doesn’t Nantucket sound charming?!? Must agree with you there. It’s Courtney’s newest series that makes me curious. :) Thanks so much for the visit, Angela.

  2. I would definitely like to see what the 1920s was like, but like you, I don’t think I’d want to live there. I went to Greece on holiday with my friends a few years back and it was such a fun trip, would definitely like to go back and see more of the islands. I live in England so I don’t really think of it as a holiday destination as such but I have enjoyed going on road trips with my friends to different cities!

    1. Gosh, no! Pretty sure I wouldn’t last two seconds. Or basically. ;) How cool! I’m glad to know you enjoyed Greece. It certainly looks pretty in movies. Totally get that. I don’t think of my state as a destination either, though part of this is because I’m SO over my state. Thanks so much for visiting, Jo!
