Hosted by the lovely people over at The Broke and the Bookish. You know that saying about ‘it’s a nice place but I wouldn’t want to live there’? Yeah, sometimes that’s what I think while reading books because the setting is just so brilliant but to live there I’d have to change so much of my life that, well, I’m rather change-phobic. But, a visit? A vacation? Sign me up!

  1. Hollow World looks interesting, and The Cloud Roads series is one I’ve been wanting to try. Tree homes and floating islands? Yes please!


    1. Hollow World is an amazing book with a wonderful setting. (And if you’re at all interested in far-future Earth sci-fi I totally recommend it.) And I LOVE some of the locales for The Cloud Roads.
