One of my favourite things about books is that you can be transported to anywhere from the comfort of your bed, sofa, the train, or wherever.
Some of those places don’t sound very nice at all, but some of them are beautiful places that leave you wishing you could get in the car, or hop on a plane, and visit.
5. The North in Game of Thrones by George R.R Martin
I love cold, foresty places so ‘The North’ would be the perfect holiday destination for me if I could visit it.
The Godswood sounds beautiful and it certainly looks beautiful in the TV show. Winterfell looks pretty cool too. I just want to live in a castle.
When I went to Ireland we went on a Game of Thrones tour and visited some of the locations they used for filming in The North, so does that mean I’ve kind of been?
4. The Palace in The Selection by Kiera Cass
It would be cool to live in a palace, few people can deny that.
The palace in The Selection series is vast, as one’s castle should be. It has a huge and awesome garden, secret rooms and a big library. I don’t think I’d ever need to leave the palace. In fact, I don’t think I’d ever need to leave the library.
3. The Pit in Divergent by Veronica Roth
It’s a cavern, who doesn’t want to visit a cavern? I’m a little unnerved by the thought of having to jump off a train onto a roof but it has a waterfall and let me repeat that it’s a cavern!
2. Champion – Marie Lu – Ross City
I absolutely loved the sound of Ross City. It’s a magical rainbow city where you basically get gamer score for doing your daily activities. I imagine the gamer score thing might get a bit annoying after a while because you’d have to be nice to everyone even if you were having an off day, but it would be fun to experience.
I was actually quite sad when the characters left Ross City because I want more Ross City!
1. Everywhere in Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
This should come as no surprise to anyone. The world of Harry Potter is magical and thinking about it brings back so many good memories of reading it as a child.
I would love to stand at the edge of the lake and see Hogwarts. I would love to take a walk down Diagon Alley and go in Fred and George’s joke shop. I would love to go to Hagrid’s Hut. I would love to stand in the cosy Gryffindor common room.
A couple of years ago I visited the Harry Potter studios and I realised that Hogwarts definitely wasn’t real and I was pretty sad. Though, a friend did suggest that perhaps it was a front for the muggles. I’m still waiting on my acceptance letter.
