January 22: Top Ten Settings I’d Like To See More Of (Or At All)

1. More settings in historical Britain (for young adult readers!) Often I’ll find historical fiction in historical Britain for adults but not a lot for young adults. Maybe something like in one of the monarch’s mansions or castles?
2. Under the sea, but not something that is paranormal. A setting that would show that this is the normal way of life for people to live (like in submarine villages)
3. In the desert. This would make a great story for surviving the wild and lot’s of situations that characters would have to overcome.
4. The rain forest. (See number three for my reason)
5. Outer space; ’nuff said.
6. Farm lands or some obscure states. Often there are a lot of books in LA or NY but I’d like to see something a little more Midwest that doesn’t come across completely as “back country”.
7. Planes. I know this sounds kind of like a weird setting but maybe something about flight attendants?
8. College campuses or dorms. Definitely don’t see enough of these settings.
9. Ships. Another sort of obscure setting but definitely something that could lead to a great story (like kids who have to live on a ship or a cruise story?)
10. Anything out of the ordinary. In other words not a typical suburban neighborhood. What about a cobweb or a dairy farm? Anything that is totally unbelievable that makes the experience of getting away from the real world that much more desirable. 

As always, leave a comment below with a link to your Top 10 and I’ll come check it out and if anyone has any good book recommendations that do, in fact, have these settings also let me know!
See you soon!

  1. We have some in common. I also want more books set in college! And settings out of the ordinary – definitely. I like books set on farms. No idea why, but I do.

  2. Me, too. I love odd settings. A cobweb would be intriguing!

    Here’s my Top Ten Settings. Come by, if you can, and share your thoughts.

  3. We have a few of the same settings. Great list!

    Here's my Top Ten:
