Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Sci-Fi and Fantasy Book Settings I Want to Visit

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish blog. If you want to participate, click here. This week's theme is Ten Bookish Settings I'd Love to Visit.

This is a really cool one for me. A good part of a story is having good imagery for the reader to be able to see the setting and put themselves in the situations. However, we don't often stop to think whether we want to be there. Below are the top ten settings I'd want to visit, in order of priority. It just so happens that all of these are from YA and middle grade science fiction and fantasy books. What book setting would you like to visit?

This is sort of a no-brainer for me. Who wouldn't want to live in a virtual world where one can live forever and shape their own reality? 

2. The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
This would also apply to the follow up series of Percy Jackson, The Heroes of Olympus, as well as The Trials of Apollo, since they have the same setting. These settings consist of a universe where the Greek Gods exist and have kids known as Half-Bloods (half human, half immortal). I would love to visit Camp Half-Blood, and I have always been fascinated with Greek Mythology.

3. The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann 
I must admit that I am doing badly with keeping up with the series, but I still love the setting. Basically, in a land called Artimé, they teach creative people to use their talents for magic. People definitely call me creative, and I would love to learn magic!

4. Backwards Glass by David Lomax
While I did not like the book, I really want to go there so I can have a mirror to travel through time! 

5. Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger
This is my favorite series ever, so it stands to reason that I would want to visit there. I want to travel by light leap, be in a glittering castle, see dinosaurs, and meet gnomes and goblins and all the creatures! Actually, living there would be pretty cool, since I would have a special ability.  

6. Consider by Kristy Acevedo
Despite the very stressful circumstance, I would really want to see Earth in 2359! If I was in that circumstance, I would step through the portal. 

7. Gone by Micheal Grant
This is one of those books that I am emphasizing the word "Visit." Look, it'd be cool to visit a place with no adults for a few hours! I would not want to live in this series, but it could be fun for a while. 

8. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Again, I would not at all want to live there, but I would like to visit from a scientific standpoint of the Earth dying and studying how and why.

I would like to go see the advanced tech and find out how it is humanly possible to deal with being part robot. Seeing robots up close and personal would be pretty cool, too. 

10. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
It would be a nice break to go to a school where love isn't allowed. It would be interesting to see what happens without the distractions of dating and romance in the halls and classrooms.
