The Bookish Adventure Tag + 100 followers!!!!

Hello everyone! In celebration of the fact that I now have 100 followers (thank you so much to all of those amazing people!!!) I have decided to create a book tag! It’s called ‘The Bookish Adventure Tag’ and I’ll explain the rules below!


RULES:

Imagine that you are an intrepid literary adventurer- braving the harsh bookish wilderness, traversing jungles of pages and slashing through vines of words. Where in the vast world of books would you go?

  • Write about one place mentioned in a book you wish you could visit and why.
  • List 3-5 things that you would do there.
  • Mention which souvenirs, if any, you would bring back with you.
  • Then tag some more literary explorers and please link back to the creator (Umairah @ Sereadipity) so I can see all of your adventures!

My dream bookish destination:

The Southern Continent from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas because, firstly, the weather is amazing there and I would love to go to the bustling markets, meet all of the different people and enjoy the lively atmosphere.

Things I would do:

  • Visit Antica (the capital) and see all of the markets there and try some of the delicious food, go shopping and enjoy the nice weather.
  • See and visit the Torre Cesme (a tower of legendary healers) and talk to some of the healers.
  • Try and meet Nesryn and Sartaq and maybe time my visit when some of the other Throne of Glass characters are in the Southern Continent on a diplomatic visit or something and try and meet them too… somehow.
  • Go to the mountains, visit the ruk riders and ride a ruk!
  • See one of the giant Stygian spiders, freak out and run away back to the UK.

Souvenirs:

I think I’d bring some clothes or a piece of jewellery or something to remember the Southern Continent by. I’d also want to bring some books back with me (I buy books everywhere I go!). However, the thing I wish I could bring back the most is Sartaq my very own ruk that I can ride and be friends with.


I tag:

If you weren’t tagged but would like to do this tag too, then feel free!

What is your dream bookish adventure?

Top Ten Tuesday- Bookish Destinations

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is ‘places mentioned in books that I’d like to visit’ and I had so much fun writing this post and imagining what I would do in all of these fantastical places.

(1) Velaris (A Court of Thorns and Roses)

If I were to visit Velaris, I would definitely go during Starfall because it sounds so dazzling and glamorous.

(2) Hogwarts (Harry Potter series)

I wish Hogwarts were real so I could explore all of the hidden rooms and meet all of the different people there. It would also be so cool to go to Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.

(3) Weep (Strange the Dreamer)

The main reason I’d want to visit Weep is to meet all of my favourite characters and see the places mentioned in the books. Also, the weather is nice there so that’s a plus!

(4) Red London (A Darker Shade of Magic)

I would love to go to Red London to visit the Night Market, the Setting Sun and see the Maresh palace. It would be so fascinating to be surrounded by so much magic and see how it fits into the inhabitants everyday lives.

(5) The Southern Continent (Throne of Glass series)

The Southern Continent seems like a beautiful place. Specifically, I would love to visit the rukhin and their ruks and also the Torre Cesme.

(6) Lothlórien (The Lord of the Rings)

Lothlórien seems so serene and picturesque and meeting an elf would be a dream come true!

(7) Ketterdam (Six of Crows)

Ketterdam seems like a lively, bustling place that I would love to visit. I would also have some waffles in Nina’s honour!

(8) Caraval (Caraval)

Although I wasn’t keen on the book I would like to visit Caraval as an onlooker not a participator.

(9) The Night Circus (The Night Circus)

If The Night Circus were real I’d be one of those obsessed people who try to predict where it would go next and visit as many times as they could.

(10) Mistward (Heir of Fire)

Mistward seems so friendly and tranquil and it would be so nice to hear one of Emrys’ stories!
