The topic that the Broke and the Bookish came up with for this week's blog hop was hard. Looking through my own bookcase it was obvious how many great and varied settings authors have used. While I have found most of these settings in books I've read, I would like to see them show up more often.
I think this would be a fantastic setting for both historical,
contemporary, and sci-fi novels.
2.Hockey games-I love hockey and feel more authors should right about it. The best thing about hockey showing up in more books will be the diverse cultures it would allow the author to use.
3. Chincoteque/Assateque Islands-Yep, O' Henry's fabulous Misty trilogy was set on these islands, as was a very badly researched episode of Bones, but I'd still like to see both islands in more books.
5.County fairs-How come no one writes about a county fair? It's the perfect setting for YA books!
6.The 1600's-I've been able to find very few books set in this time period, which doesn't make any sense to me. So much happened than, it should be a gold mine of possibilities.
7. Mummy Crypt's-Mummies are slowly starting to show up in some books, and as far as I'm concerned this is a very good thing. I just want more mummy book, like, right now.
8. Pig farms-Okay, I'm a little biased. My WIP happens to be set on a pig farm, but that doesn't mean I don't want more books to come out with the same setting.As an added bonus, hands down hog farmers happen to be the nicest group of people I've ever met.
9.Traveling Circuses-Sarah Gruen effectivly showed what a great setting this can be. I'm hoping more authors follow suit
10. The World Fair-I don't think I've read a single book set at the World Fair.
What about you? Do you have any settings you wish would show up more in the books you snuggle up with?
