Today’s topic is all about worlds I’d want to live in! I’m so excited to take everyone on a trip through my favorite fictional places.
The Los Angeles Shadowhunter Institute
It’s no secret that I LOVE anything Cassie Clare writes. While my love started with The Mortal Instruments, I have a soft spot for The Los Angeles Institute – the setting for some of The Dark Artifices. I’m an LA girl and can’t help but imagine all my favorite places in the city as magical (or Julian and Emma sitting in traffic next to me). Can anyone else imagine taking a trip to the beach in Santa Monica and seeing some demon-slaying, half-angel warriors sunbathing next to you or riding magical, flying faerie horses? Because I CAN.
The fictional town where The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater takes place. There are psychics, magical forests, Welsh kings, bee-like demons, and, of course, Aglionby Boys. Who wouldn’t want to live in a world where you can literally make your dreams a reality.
How can I not add Hogwarts to my list? Fantastic beasts, magical sweets, flying cars, and spells that can clean my house! Everything about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter calls to me. But can we petition to get JK Rowling to allows dogs as pets?
I just want to live in the City of Starlight, where everything smells like fresh air and jasmine and I’m surrounded by mountains and rivers and all the magical faerie things. Seriously, I even have a tattoo because I am obsessed with all things A Court of Thorns and Roses and Sarah J Mass.
Hobbiton, The Shire
I’m already the size of a hobbit, so why wouldn’t I want to spend my time wandering rolling greens hills, eating and drinking all day? Breakfast, Second Breakfast, Elevenses, Lunch, Afternoon Tea, Dinner, Supper…I want them all! Let’s not forget about being besties with Gandalf!
Talk To Me
What did you think of my picks? What worlds do you most want to live in? Do we have any in common?
