Places in Books I Want to Live in: TTT

“Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” -That Artsy Reader Girl

This week’s theme is:

Places in books you want to live

Ah, I am so excited about this one. I think about this a lot.

Clearly some of my answers are going to be very obvious but I will try to surprise you as best as I can.

  1. Hogwarts

Reason: Ummm do I even need to explain

Hogwarts Castle from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

2. Terrasen

This is such a beautifully described place. And I love the smell of pine so I think the Pine forest would suit me well.

3. Torre Cesme

I mean just for the library alone. And to meet the Baast Cats. I would love it there.

Tower of Pisa I am pretending is the Torre Cesme

3. New York

I mean this is from a lot of books that I love, most recently, Dash and Lilly and What If It’s Us. It has also been my dream to move to New York. So, any excuse to talk about New York, I am game.

4. Doon

I have loved Doon ever since I read the books. I think it sounds so beautiful and I also really want to go to Scotland.

5. Wonderland

More specifically, the Wonderland that Marissa Meyers creates in Heartless. And probably before the Catherine becomes evil.

Alice in Wonderland

6. The Maze

I love the Maze Runner. I do not think being in the Maze and living in the Maze would be great. But, the men there. Oh my goodness. I would do it just for that.

7. Watford School of Magicks

Not as great as Hogwarts, but I loved Carry On and would love to see this other magic school.

And with that, I end my list. I could not think of ten places. I really like these places.

As always, thanks for reading,

It’s Tuesday…guess what that means

If you guessed another Top Ten Tuesday, you would be correct.

This week’s theme is:

Character’s jobs you would want (for whatever reason like its cool of the boss is hot)

I had to dig deep for this one because I don’t have any of my already read books with me in my apartment.

  1. Charlie Weasley- I mean who wouldn’t want to be a dragon tamer. How fucking fun does that sound to be around dragons all day.
  2. Cormoran Strike- Being a detective sounds so cool (except for the almost dying every book part). Also, I would love to meet Robin. She is a girl boss.
  3. Severus Snape/Professor Slughorn- I would LOVE to be the potions teacher. I think I would excel at potions.
  4. Minerva McGonagall-As headmaster and transfiguration professor, I would love either position she held. Really anything in Hogwarts!
  5. Newt Scamander- I can’t remember if this is technically really a job, but caring for magical creatures sounds amazing.
  6. Celeana Sardothien- As an assassin, I think I would thrive. I am not a fan of killing people (not that I have done it), but I would love to be as badass as Celeana.

I couldn’t think of any more jobs I would love to be in. These are the ones that immediately came to my mind. They all seem so badass. I think they sound so exciting and thrilling.

But, I will definitely be staying on my career path. I am not a risk taker and all of these sound risky.
