I’m not sure if all of the places I mention are technically places, but you’ll get the idea.

Top Ten Settings I’d Like To See More Of
1The desert– Books like The Crown of Embers have me dreaming about soft sand and the hot sun. There’s something very exotic about the desert.
2Castles with princesses– I seriously LOVE the romance and traditions associated with castles. How medieval things are and how dashing princes can be.
3Anywhere with dragons– I’m not sure if this is a setting per se, but I’d just like to see more dragons, period. Not too much to ask, right?!
4Underground– I saw a bit of this in Glitch – they citizens of the time had to live underground because of the toxic pollution on the Earth.
5England– All the rolling hills (and MOAR castles!) are definitely on my agenda. Especially if were Downton Abbey style.
6Ancient Italy– I’d love to read a historical fiction story about ancient Rome or the gladiators. It should definitely include the Colosseum for sure.
7Australia— Another gorgeous landscape that could write a book all by itself. It doesn’t count, I guess, but The Hobbit was filmed there so it makes me think the book is set there too.
8Romanov-era Russia— I have a strange fascination with Russia and ancient Russian royalty. A retelling of that story would be right up my alley.
9Futuristic America but not a dystopia– I think Legend by Marie Lu does something like this (I haven’t read it, so if that’s not true, please correct me). I’d like to see how authors imagine the U.S. in the future…minus a huge global catastrophe.
10Pirates on the open ocean– Another confession: I love pirates! Mad Kestral is one of the only books EVER to combine pirate-ism AND fantasy. If I were to ever write a book (and I may never do it), it will probably most likely involve pirates.
