Book Talk: Favorite Places Part I

When talking about rook related places, there are two types. The first are those book settings that you adore and wish you could move to or visit. Then there are the places you love to read at, like the perfect corner or the comfiest rocker. This post will talk about book settings, the next will be about reading settings.

For me, there are a lot of book settings I love. Anytime snow is involved, I love it. If the book takes place in the mountains, I love it. However, there is only one setting I wish I could live in. Prince Edward Island and the Canadian maritime provinces.

Much like my crush on Gilbert from Anne of Green Gables, the settings of the novels hold a special place in my heart. I visited the provinces and they are every bit as beautiful as Montgomery describes. The island is one of my favorite places in the world and I long to go back to spend more time there, and not only because of the books. There is a feeling you get when you are in the provinces, a feeling I can’t really put into words. You don’t feel stressed, you don’t feel rushed, you just feel peaceful.

I am completely convinced that the maritime provinces are made up of magic. I fell in love with the provinces. Out of everywhere I have traveled and read about, the settings of the Anne of Green Gables novels are my favorite. I’ve seen more beautiful places, and I’ve visited more important places, but the magic you feel there is unbeatable.

Now that you know mine, share your favorite book setting (or settings). I’d love to hear about the places you love to read about.
