Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature by the wonderful The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new theme and you can participate when and if you choose. This week’s theme is top ten books with X setting.
Set in a magical/fantasy land
Top Ten Books With X Setting (top ten books set near the beach, top ten book set in boarding school, top ten books set in England, etc).
I must admit that when I was younger I wasn’t much of a fantasy fan, but since all of these incredible authors have been creating these dynamic worlds, I thought I’d list my top ten faves.
Just a note, when I say magical land I don’t mean a place where there is magic per se but rather a place the exists outside of our reality.
