Top Ten Tuesday: Settings I'd Like To See More Of (Or At All)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Every Tuesday they ask you to post your top ten on a bookish subject.

This week in Top Ten Tuesday the subject is settings. Are there settings I miss and would like to see more in books. Another Top Ten that is going to be a struggle. There are a lot of settings I like (beach, school, murder mansions) and I often pick books with those settings. I have never really gave it much of a thought though if there are things I feel like I am missing out on or that I cannot find a book fitting that setting. But let me give it a try.

  1. Crime scenes: I love to watch/ read crime stories but have not been doing that a lot lately. I guess I would like to read more and see more crime scenes and investigate along.
  2. Small villages: Those small towns where everybody knows each other. Stories with that setting usually give me a cosy feeling. 
  3. Castles: When I was younger I read a lot of historical fiction on knights and castles being under siege. Now I think of it I have not really read a lot of these books the last year though I enjoy them.
  4. Middle Ages: Same with the castles. I like to read about troubadours and war and cities and their goings. I do prefer it to be fiction though set in the late Middle ages (after 1100)
  5. Mystery Mansions: While typing I realized it has been a while since I read a book that gives you the creeps so badly you hardly dare to open the door to your bedroom. 
I really cannot come up with more ideas. I read so many books and though the setting is important for the story I am not always considering it. Will have to browse trough all your posts to see if it gives me more ideas.

I completely agree, there's not enough books set in the middle ages!

Yes please to more crime scenes! I HUNT KILLERS by Barry Lyga only whetted my appetite for more.
