With summer vacation talk heating up around here the Book Riot's post entitled, "Summer Travel: The Top 5 Places I’d Go If Fiction Were Open to Tourists" really caught my attention, enough that I thought I would ask you all the same question.
If you could take your summer vacation in a fictional world, where would you go? In the post, Jeanette lists some good ones like Harry Potter's world or George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire setting.
But what about you?
I'll go first, I have to say that I would love to visit the George Lucas created universe of Star Wars for a time. Just to get to travel through space and meet many different aliens. I wouldn't want to be a part of the intergalactic struggle of good vs. evil though. I just want to experience it
As I have mentioned on the blog many times before, I am also a fan of the mid-Nineteenth Century as a setting for my fiction and nonfiction. Any novel set during this era would be a way for me to time travel to this exciting time. So maybe a Dickens novel, or better yet, 2 books I read with a Dickens theme and setting which I loved were The Last Dickens by Matthew Pearl and Drood by Dan Simmons. But really anything set in the mid to late 19th Century in America or England would be a good fictional vacation destination for me.
Now it is your turn.
For today's return of the Monday Discussion, just as Jeannette asks here, where would you go if fiction were open to tourists.
