Top Ten Settings in Books:
1. La Push from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer: F**k Forks and the Vampires, give me the backwoods of La Push, the beaches, and those sexy Quilutes.
2. Hogwarts from The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling: Seriously, who hasn’t read this series and didn’t want to be there? Still patiently waiting on my acceptance letter.
3. Legend, Colorado from Legend By Jude Deveraux: I fell in love with this little made up town (at least I think its made up). The people are great and it has just enough magic and happenstance to make it interesting.
4. Madison, Georgia from Hissy Fit by Mary Kay Andrews: Love this little small town. It has so much character and history even though it’ small. It’s comfy and homey and remind me a lot of my little podunk country town. And this place may be boring at times, but it’s home.
5. Bon Temps from the Sookie Stackhouse and True Blood series by Charlaine Harris: Again, loving the little town inhabited by folks who all know one another. It’s small and cozy with just enough strange shit going on to keep it interesting.
6. Taggart Ranch in Only Hers by Francis Ray: I can picture this place in my head with such clarity. The meadows, the barn and tackhouse, even the old roughshod shed in the meadow. I can even picture the surrounding town and the livestock. Loved being in this town so much I go back at least once a year (reading). Not to mention it’s just a great story.
7. Henry Adams from Something Like Love by Beverly Jenkins: This is a small town built up by Blacks fleeing from slavery out in Kansas. This fictional town is based on a real town. I love that they build their own community complete with stores and schoolhouse. And I especially love that they vote in a woman to be the first mayor of Henry Adams. Just innovative.
8. St. Martinique from Captured by Beverly Jenkins: This sounds like a good place to take a vacation. Nice blue beaches, warm weather, and beautiful people and great food. Really couldn’t ask for more.
9. Sunrise, North Carolina by Chassie West: This town is reminiscent of mine and in the same state, though this one is made up. It’s mysterious, and charming….but just a little sinister.
10. Villa Villa Cula from Pippi Longstocking: Pippi, Tommy, And Anika seemed to have so much fun here. I always wanted to join in their adventures and play with them here.
