Top Places in Books I’d Love To Live In

One of the best qualities in books is the level of escapism they give. There is nothing better than coming back home from a hard day, kick back with a book and forget all your troubles. Some books give you the ache, the wanting, the umbearable question: why can’t my life be like this? Well, you can’t fall into a book, but if you wish you could, where would you like to go?

Here are my favorite places in books, places I would love to live in.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Go check her website out! 

Asgard in Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

I know it would probably be very dangerous, with troublesome gods like Loki and rabid beasts, but it is so beautiful I wouldn’t be able to resist. Do you imagine waking up to a sunrise between a golden palace and a rainbow bridge? Can’t think of anyhting better.

Ketterdam in Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Again, pretty dangerous choice, but with the crows for protection I don’t see how anything could go wrong.


France in My Contrary Mary by Cynthia Hard, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows

I’m really curious to see how life in Renaissance France was. I know I know, probably very dirty and smelly. I’m sure it was still chic.

Crema in Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman

This is a beautiful small town in Lombardy, and I don’t live too far from it right now. Maybe in a post COVID world I might go visit.


England in the world of Black Butler by Yana Toboso

How cool would it be to go on adventures with Ciel and Sebastian? Oh, Sebastian *swoons*.

That’s it!

  1. Oooh, Asgard! I agree it might be dangerous but it would be so stunning! Totally worth it. XD

    As much as I love Six of Crows, I’m not sure I’d pick Ketterdam to live XD Maybe somewhere less chaotic and dark. Some place in Ravka or Novyi Zem (though I suppose ANYWHERE in the Grisha might be dangerous…)

    1. I do seem to like living on the edge huh? I’m imagining that if I live in these places, I have enough powers and knowledge to survive. Of course, there are other books and other options, like a romantic cruise travelling the Mediterranean, I wouldn’t be mad at that.

      1. That’s a GREAT point. I would hope if I lived in those places too I’d know the best options for survival. (I mean, the Dregs do and it seems like most Asgardians do too!)

        hahaha yes to a romantic cruise!
