Thanks to the gals of The Broke and The Bookish for hosting this meme every week!
Okay, that’s a really general category I know D: but I read such a weird mix of books that I couldn’t think of anything more specific that would have more than approximately two books in it, haha. I read so much fantasy and sci-fi that books set in our modern day are actually fairly rare, but I love when I get a peek at another place in our world in addition to the fun fantasy aspects :D.
Somewhere Else in Our World
By this I mean those books that have a fairly detailed location (and therefore I can still remember where they are set!) but it’s somewhere I haven’t lived in and so don’t know well. It’s a lot of fun to find out about landmarks etc somewhere else in our world even though there are dragons and werewolves fighting around them ;-).
Quiz time! Where do all of these take place?? ;-) I love the depiction of Prague and London in Daughter of Smoke and Bone and The White Forest since I’ve never been to either :D. I also love the chance to get a taste for somewhere else in the US, even though Libriomancer takes place just a few hours north of me, hehe.
This is a useful description for both futuristic sci-fi and historical fantasy :D. I’m not super into history, so historical fantasy generally is fresh to me since I learn so many “facts” (ie I don’t know if they’re actually true, hehe) about some time in the past. Futuristic sci-fi that is actually trying to depict Earth’s future are pretty awesome mind-benders as well :D.
More quizzes: What time period do these take place in :D. I suppose we don’t really have a time besides “the future” for three of them, hehe. But seriously, Grave Mercy and The Sweetest Dark convinced me that I can like books set in historical settings as long as there is some sort of magic or mysticism :D.
What did you choose to do for this week? Did you pass the quizzes?? ;-)
