Top Ten Settings I Would Like To See More Of
I fell in love with Scotland through Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher and A Scottish Ferry Tale by Nancy Volkers and I've wanted to read more books set in this wonderful country ever since.
I've always had a passion for acting and I love being in a theatre, both on stage and off. There is this special kind of anticipation and excitement in the air. So much could happen behind the stage and I think it would be a great setting for many different novels.
3) Gothic settings
There's just something about big old mansions with towers and secret passageways and strange inhabitants and gloomy weather.
4) Sydney, Australia
Sydney is my very favourite city in the world, and I love reading about it. After having lived there for a few months it's even more fun to read stories that are set there, because I can recognise places and picture everything much more vividly in my mind.
5) Northern Norway
The unique landscape, the rough weather and the many contrasts of this area would be an amazing setting for a mystery or thriller. Plus, it's my home and I'd love to see it through someone else's eyes.
7) Completely original worlds
Think the prison in Catherine Fisher's Incarceron series. I love it when an author can make me believe in a whole new world I've never imagined before.
8) New England
I visited some small towns in New England last year and absolutely loved it.
Green hills, cosy stone cottages, quirky characters and sheep - I blame the TV show Heartbeat for giving me this romantic view of the area.
10) Libraries/book stores
I think all of us book lovers like this setting, right?
