Hello everyone and it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! Since this week was a freebie week, I decided to do to opposite of what we did last week, and make a list of settings I’m just kind of sick of reading and seeing in books.
This was an idea created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The rules basically go a little like this:
- Jana creates a new topic every Tuesday to make your list, and you create your own Top Ten (or three, or five, or twenty, however many you choose!)
- Link back your posts to That Artsy Reader Girl so when others read your post, they’ll know where to go to get more info about future upcoming topics.
- There is a linky widget on Jana’s Top Ten Tuesday post so other’s can see your post as well as you being able to check out everyone else’s! So definitely leave your links!
- Don’t be afraid to add your own twist to it!
This week’s topic: Settings I’d Like to See Less Of
I’ve seen Paris way too much in books it’s not feeling magical anymore. I need less eiffel tower, more of… just anywhere else!
(2) New York City
I’m sure a lot of people love reading about characters being in the city. Sure, there’s a lot to do there, but I live in New York, and it bothers me that books only focus on the city part of New York. There is a whole other part to New York, why can’t a book be set in Albany… Buffalo even?? Rochester maybe? NYC is way over done, and I’m done with it.
Like Paris, kind of tired of this setting. It seems like the only two vacation spots characters in YA can go is either Paris or Italy. *face palm*
