Last week’s question: Guilty Pleasures
This week’s question:
Armchair Travel! Tell us about your favorite book in a setting you’d like to visit (a real place for this question)
This post is about 15 hours late because I didn’t get the question this week (brain fart?) and I had to look at other people’s posts to understand it. Most books I read are usually based on real places so I thought it would be easy to come up with… but it wasn’t, because I don’t remember most of them. I was only able to come up with a couple which is good enough for me and off course I happened to choose 2 settings that are in vampire books…
1. Interview With The Vampire by Anne Rice based in New Orleans. It may not be as exciting to other people as it is to me… but I’ve read and heard so much about it that I’ve just always been intrigued by this city. I think the most appealing would be Mardi Gras! Not to show my boobs for beads, haha but just to experience it. I’m sure that one was kind of obvious but so many people talk about how great it is and I think that would fit well because I love travelling and excitement in my life.
2. Reign of Blood by Alexia Purdy, based in Las Vegas. I don’t really think I’d enjoy (oddly enough) the city in the specific setting of the book because in it, Las Vegas is post apocalyptic (I imagine it would look something like the Fallout: New Vegas video game), but if I were to go when it’s normal and zombie-vampire free, then HELL YES! I’m not much of a gambler but sometimes I like to go to the casino. I’ve spent hours on slot machines, playing with my husband and family and oddly enough, not usually losing too much money. Besides that, the whole environment that you see, hear or read about seems amazing with the shows and everything else in general.
I’m sure I could have come up with some amazing, non US places but these were the best places I could come up with that came from a book. I’d love to read a book based in Germany because I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go there and will definitely be going one day.
What is a REAL location you’d like to visit from one of your favourite books?
