The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge is hosted by Long and Short Reviews. This week’s topic is: fictional worlds I’d love to visit.
It was a bit of a challenge to come up with something this week. There was a time when I read more things set in alternate worlds or fantasy settings, but the last several years have been more contemporary romance and detective novels. But, I dug deep and came up with four possibilities.
Icewind Dale (several series by R. A. Salvatore)
I’m not quite sure how I managed to forget R. A. Salvatore last week when I did my post on favorite authors, but I did. That said, I’d love to visit Icewind Dale, home of Drizzt, Bruenor, Wulfgar, and the like. We could take a trip to Helm’s Deep or something. Fight some orcs maybe.
Bon Temps, LA (Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire series)
Is it wrong to say I just want to go to Merlotte’s and hang out with Sookie? Because I think that would be a ton of fun. And I’ve never been to Louisiana, so that would make the trip worth while as far as I’m concerned.
The Continent (The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski)
The place in which The Witcher is set isn’t ever named as far as I can tell, but I’d love to roam the countryside and visit all the towns and castles and things. Plus, I’d go just to meet Geralt.
Cross Academy (the Vampire Knight series by Matsuri Hino)
I love anything set in a boarding school, so Cross Academy would be high on my list. I’d wander the halls with Yuki and Zero, haunt the grounds at night with Kaname and his crew…
Alternate Seattle (Dakota Cassidy’s Witchless in Seattle series)
I’d visit this paranormal-filled version of Seattle specifically to spend time with Stevie, Belfry, and Winterbottom. It’d be a bonus if I could help them solve a case or help Stevie get her Witch back.
What about you, where would you like to visit if you could?
