Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge July 17, 2019


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?

  1. Icewind Dale! It’s been ages since I’ve read those books. (Though I did mention D’n’D settings in my list.) The mention of the Witcher is making me realize that I should have put the various Elder Scrolls nations somewhere on my list — half the fun of those games was just exploring the world.And I haven’t read The Vampire Knight series, but it sounds like something I should take a look at.

    My list is here.


    1. Right? I have several on my bookshelf that I’ve bought, but haven’t had time to read. That and I have to be in a certain frame of mind to read fantasy.

      So true – even the Final Fantasy games give you so much to see and do. And while I’m not a gamer, I’d give my first born to ride a chocobo! LOL

      Vampire Knight is a manga/anime about a boarding school with a ‘night class’ full of vampires. I really enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by!


  2. Bon Temps would be good. I love how urban fantasy gives highlights real places and makes it more exciting.


  3. YAY for Icewind Dale… I so agree especially if I could visit as an elf priestess or a druid!! And we’d hopefully meet some of the celebrity figures you mentioned. And YES to the Continent!! Can I be an apprentice Witcher too?! Hahaha as long as I could be revived when I die of course. ❤️ Love your choices!! This is a fun prompt.


    1. Right? Or even better, a drow priestess. Truthfully, I just want to be able to shoot people with purple fire. Hahaha.

      You and me both. Geralt seems to be nearly indestructible, so that’s a plus. 😀
