Top 5 Wednesday: Settings You Want to See More Of

Hello lovelies,

It's that time for Top 5 Wednesday, as created by the awesome GingerReadsLainey and now moderated by the lovely ThoughtsonTomes over on Goodreads!

This weeks topic is...Settings You Want to See More Of!

At first when I seen this was this week's topic, I was like "oh no!" but when I actually spent five minutes thinking (which is about 5 times more than I usually do!) I realised this could be pretty fun!

I'm really interested to see what everyone else picked but for now here's mine!

My choices for this are;

Well let's be clear here, all Harry Potter Magical places IS A GIVEN.

but also...

The camp in Lumberjanes
created by:  Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters, Brooke A. Allen

All things magical and mysterious happen in the Lumberjanes camp, and I can't wait to see what else it has in store, luckily it's still on-going so we'll hopefully see plenty more!
I'd love to visit the Lumberjanes camp one time in my life!

The steampunk world in the Parasol Protectorate/Custard Protocol series
created by: Gail Carriger

Since Gail is creating most of her series in the same world (at different time periods) and the Custard Protocol series is still ongoing (new book out in July!) the likelihood that we'll see more of this world is extremely high.
However, as much as I enjoy Gail Carriger's writing, there is not a massive amount of description of the world, and all the fascinating technology featured in it.
I think this series would work extremely well as a TV series, and I'd love to be able to see the books played out visually, although I think there is a manga, if you've read the manga let me know if you think it's worth picking up below!

The magical world (particularly the different Londons) in Shades of Magic series
created by:V. E. Schwab

The world/s in the Shades of Magic series are so wonderful but they are expansive, so in the first two books I haven't seen as much of them as I'd like. There's still book number three to come though so perhaps we'll explore more of this world then.
I would definitely like to spend a little more time in and around the palace, the pirates ships and the other Londons. Though considering the amount of worlds this series has to cover I think you would need a whole other book just to explore! (btw, V. E. Schwab I'd love that, #justsayin)

The futuristic technological android filled world in Lock In
created by: John Scalzi

This might seem like a strange choice, considering it's basically based on our world in the future, but I'd love to spend more time in this world seeing how it all works.
In this novel, a flu pandemic has caused a massive amount of the population to suffer from "locked in" syndrome. Which scientists have overcome with virtual reality networks (the Agora) and android bodies that people can use to live, work and socialise.
I'd also love to spend more time seeing how the android bodies in this world live and work and I'd also love to spend some time in the Agora, which reminds me a lot of Second Life!

The world (and the moon) in the Lunar Chronicles series
created by: Marissa Meyer

OK, so this was an obvious choice for me and if you've read Winter you probably know why.
I want to see so much more of Lunar (I haven't read Fairest so if there's more about Lunar in that let me know!)
But also similarly to Lock In, this world has a lot of different levels of cybernetics which I would love to learn more about.
This is another series that I would love to see visually, and I think it would work as a really good TV series! (hint, hint!)

    Have you read any of these? Do you fancy seeing any more of the worlds these books have shown us? Let me know below!

    I'd love to know which settings you would like to see more of, I thought this one was a really interesting one! leave your answers below, or if you've done this weeks, link me up below!

    1. The Lunar Chronicles! Yes exactly. I want to explore that world and I love how there is so much travel and different settings that Meyer explores. And I am always up for more of the Wizarding World. Check out my post?
