Top 10 Tuesday – 12/10/21

Hello bookworms and welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is: Favourite Book Settings

1. Circus of Wonders by Elizabeth Macneal

I loved the whole circus theme and all the unusual characters we met in this book.

2. The Secret Seaside Escape by Heidi Swain

I am falling in love with the idyllic quiet village settings that Heidi Swain creates. The town of Wynmouth seems like the perfect place to get a much needed break and indulge in some fab food, all with the luscious sea as your backdrop.

3. Magic Lessons by Alice Hoffman

A magical tale of the Owen’s family, filled with magic, love and tragedy? Yes please!

4. The Whistling by Rebecca Netley

This spooky tale, set on a Scottish island certainly has all the eerie and creepy vibes I was expecting.

5. The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes

I really want to be part of the Packhorse Library crew, there was something very little women about them!

6. Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult

The island of Galapagos was beautifully described and I am definitely adding it to my list of places to go.

7. Winter by Marissa Meyer

The planet Lunar sounds so wacky and completely different and I’m sure under Cinder’s rule it’s a much nicer place.

8. The Queen’s Spy by Clare Marchant

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am slightly obsessed with the Tudor period. If I could go back to anytime in history then that would be it. Clare Marchant’s stories set in that era have only fed my obsession further.

9. Meet Me In Another Life by Catriona Silvey

This read was completely different to my go to genre. I loved the idea of living different lives and the author’s twist on it was very clever.

10. The Shape of Darkness by Laura Purcell

This gothic story set in Victorian Bath left me with chills. The setting was the perfect match for this spiritual and haunting read.

I honestly think I could go on and on with this list but these are my stand out ones from this year. What would be on your list?
