Top Ten Tuesday Rewind

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Today we get to choose a past topic for our top ten list and I'm going way back into the archives of TTT to bring you my:

Top Ten Favorite Book Settings
(either a particular place in the book or the whole book)

1. Miss Lavender's garden where Gilbert proposes to Anne and she finally accepts him. Don't you wish you could go play with the echos?

2. Cair Paravel - the palace of High Kin Peter, High Queen Susan, King Edmond and Queen Lucy.

3. The yacht that Elsie (Dinsmore) Travilla, her son-in-law Captain Raymond and their families travel on down the Hudson and Eastern Seaboard. Wouldn't it be so cool to travel that way and see all the historical sites?

4. Israel/Palestine during The Bronze Bow or The Robe or Acts of Faith Series. Essentially Judea and Jerusalem when Jesus was there and afterwards.

5. Anything (almost) set in Revolutionary War America.

6. Jane Austen's England. Wouldn't it be amazing to attend the same assemblies as the Bennett sisters or the Miss Dashwoods, or Anne Eliot or Emma Woodhouse?

7. That amazing island with a crazy mix of flora and fauna that the Robinson family finds themselves stranded on.

8. Sherwood Forest with Robin Hood (in the summer)

9. Oregon Trail and moving west stories. When I was younger I was not a huge fan of the game Oregon Trail because the wagon tipped over too many times while crossing a river or because I or someone in my party died one too many times of cholera or a snake bite. But I do like the stories. One really great series is The Journals of Corrie Belle Hollister by Michael Phillips and Judith Pella. Only the first book is about wagon train travel.

10. Lothlorien from Lord of the Rings, or Rivendell, or Hobbiton, or Minas Tirith, or Edoras
