Top Ten Tuesday: Settings I'd like to see more of


 
Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish


This week's Top Ten is kind of a bust for me. Top Ten settings I'd like to see more of? Right now, it would be anywhere warm. The temperature outside is FRIGID. It's -1, with a wind chill of -16. We're expecting the wind chill to get down to -25. Who EXPECTS the temperature to get down that low? Polar bears, that's who. It's freaking cold for people.

Surfing in Hawaii. I don't surf, but I could read about other people surfing in Hawaii.

This place looks gorgeous. And most importantly, warm. Sedona Cathedral Rock in Arizona.

I think you get the gist. Anyplace warm.


Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at the media in California for overreacting to the "cold snap." He mentioned Milwaukee (my neck of the woods). It's pretty funny.



Have a great week. What settings would you like to read more of?

Talk to you soon,
Angela

  1. Interesting choices for this week's list, very warm! ;) (over here we're sitting on -17C right now with snow and everything and we're going down to -26C tonight. Good fun, and I have class this evening lol) Would make for some very relaxing reads! =)

    Here's my 10 settings for this week ;)

  3. I miss a lot of things about Wisconsin, but the weather is not one of them. Those temperatures right now are ridiculous. I'm sending lots of warm thoughts your way!

    A little story to make you lol:
    I now live in VA and last week Thursday they were predicting 1-5 inches of snow for Friday. It has been super warm so accumulation would be mostly on the grass right? It started snowing around 6pm Thurs, most schools cancelled school for Friday by 8, the rest by 10. We got about an inch and there was NO accumulation on the roads.

    It's ridiculous. Every time it snows here its the end of the world.

    1. That's hilarious, Kimberly. We're getting dumped on again with that heavy, slippery snow.

  4. These are just places I want to VISIT. Would love to read a book set in Bora Bora, I don't know of any yet. Perhaps it's time or a research trip ;).

  12. I am totally with you on wanting somewhere warm! While we aren't in the negatives where I am, we were in the single digits this week. Brrrr. I also want some sunshine. None of this getting dark by 5pm nonsense!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  13. I haven't read any island settings in a long time! The pictures look lovely though :) It's cold here too (Switzerland) and snowing every few days... but on Sunday I'm flying to Barcelona where hopefully it'll be at least a little bit warmer!
    Thanks for stopping by my post :)

  14. That *is* cold! Where I am, it's pretty freezing, too. I can see why you want to read about some warmer settings. I wouldn't mind a book or two set in Hawaii!
