Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is Settings I’d Like To See More Of.
July 23rd: Settings I’d Like To See More Of
I don’t think I can come up with ten different choices today because I am not that imaginative lol! But I would like to see the following:
Books with a realistic hospital setting for the long term ill
Frequently I find in books that we get a sanitised version of what being a long term patient of a hospital is like and therefore I would like books with more of an authentic feel. I would also include in this settings for doctor appointments be they for physical and/or mental health struggles.
Translated books set in the author’s native country
I think books from outside traditional English speaking regions should be highlighted more as reading a book from a country foreign to your own is a great way of understanding and learning about our modern diverse society.
Books set in alternative histories of our world
I just love alternative histories when they are thoroughly researched and therefore have fantastic world building.
Books set in libraries and book stores
Can never have too many books about books!!!
Books set in single place
I really love the idea of a book where the action all happens in real time in one room.
And that’s my list! I am happy that I came up with five ideas. I will probably read loads of posts by other bloggers today and be like ‘oh why did I not think of that’ lol!
If you have any recommendations of books that fit any of the settings from my list can you please let me know in the comments below. I would really love to get some great book recs today.
