Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
How it works: Each Tuesday will be assigned a topic and then you post your top ten list that fits it. Feel free to add your own spin on the topic to make it work for you! For me, I’m not sure the type of spin I want to put on it, so for now I’ll post fairly straight-forward responses.
I put this month’s topics at the bottom of the post, but you can find the whole list on the host blog. If you don’t have a blog, you’re welcome to participate using other social media or even by putting your list in the comments.

Can you think of any book titles that sound like they could also be a crayon color? It might be fun to include a description of the kind of color you’re picturing.)

My choices this week varied a lot as I went with the complete fantasy to those that seem like they could be real as they are set in or near real places or the actual real settings. Originally, I was going to narrow it down further to one of these three main categories, but I had a difficult time choosing one. Instead, I decided to keep it a mixed bag of choices.
My choices in the fantasy realms are Rivendell from Lord of the Rings, Hogwarts from Harry Potter, and the Four Nations from Avatar (I did not have a preference – maybe the North Pole(?) – I love multiple places in Avatar, so it is hard to narrow it down). My other choices are those that are not real places, but they are set among a more contemporary/real world. Almost all of these choices were set in smaller and snowy towns, which I would agree fits my ideal setting. I love small town vibes with the sense of the community and you cannot beat the magic of snow (if you do not have to shovel or drive in it). There are millions of other places, especially ones from fantasy books, that I would love to live, but these are the ones with the “least” amount of danger (haha). This brings my last Tuesday post for March to a close and now onto April!
