Top Ten Tuesday: Settings I’d like to see more of (or at all)

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s theme is settings I’d like to see more of (or at all). I really had a hard time with this topic because, quite honestly, setting doesn’t matter all that much to me. So, like last week, I only have five answers for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday.

Wisconsin (literally anywhere in the state)

It’s my home state, and although I don’t live there anymore, I still love it. Over the years, I’ve found very few books set in Wisconsin, although I did just find a graphic novel series set there that I’d like to read someday. (As a bonus, it’s set in the town I was born in!)

early 1900s New York City

This is a setting that’s kind of been done to death already, but I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of reading about it. Libba Bray’s Diviners series is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of this setting. Something about that time period and a spooky vibe really go well together.

1960s New York City

Am I seeing a trend here? I was thinking about other historical fiction I’ve read set in NYC and The Rules of Magic came to mind. I love the feeling of 1960s NYC.

New Jersey

Compared with Wisconsin, I guess there are a decent number of books set in my new home of New Jersey. But still, I think I’d like to read less about the part of NJ that borders NYC and more about the cute little shore towns or Princeton, which is very close to where I live now.


When I think of books I’ve read set in other countries, I don’t think that I’ve read anything set in Peru. It’s such a beautiful country! It would be a great backdrop for a story!
