Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Settings I’d Like to See More Of in books.
This is a really hard topic because honestly, I really don’t care about the book’s setting as long as the book is enjoyable to read. I’ll try my best making this list though.
1. Set in the 1700s to the 1800s.
Okay, this is kind of cheating because this setting is a time setting, but whatever. I adore reading historical romances for the fancy dresses and the masquerade balls they have. I love learning more about the past and how hard it is to find a murderer without DNA or scientific analysis.
2. The past, here and now, and the future.
Again, this is not exactly a setting kind of setting, but yeah. I love to read about books that have time traveling. I want to learn about the author’s version of time traveling, how it works, and the consequences of it all.
3. A cave.
Don’t ask me why. You know those caves where it’s complete pitch darkness and you can’t see your own fingers in front of you? Yeah, I want to read a book with that kind of setting.
4. A setting with a grassy meadow, clear blue skies with some fluffy clouds, fluttering butterflies, hopping rabbits, and rainbows.
I’m not kidding. I’m interested in what the author can manage to pull up in that kind of setting. I want to see how they’ll create the conflict. Family drama? Murder mystery? Who knows?
5. A setting where there’s a serial killer on the loose.
I love horror books filled with gore. I love books that leave me on the edge of my seat, makes my jaw drop in horror, and leaves me speechless. This setting will be perfect for that.
6. A setting with an abusive family.
I know it’s cruel to want to read a book about an abusive family, but I want to see how it’ll effect the victims in the family. I want to learn how and why they grow up to be who they are after they were abused.
7. A setting where a devastating earthquake happens.
It’ll make an excellent dystopian novel!
8. A setting in a hospital.
I’ve always wondered how doctors and nurses go through each day in a hospital with the horrors they see.
9. A book taking place during the Civil War.
There are a few books that take place during the Civil War.
I want to see how people in Alaska deal with the cold and how they have a shorter day than the rest of the world.
And if you read through all that, great! Now I want to know, what book settings do you want to read?
