SECRETS & LIES
|| A book set in a sleepy small town ||
To Kill a Mockingbird (Book 1) by Harper Lee — Though the setting may be a small place, the story and meaning behind this novel are gigantic!
SALT & SAND
|| A book with a beachside community ||
Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett — Not only does it have a beachside setting, there’s also a lot of focus on the love of the water in this novel.
HERE THERE BE DRAGONS
|| A book with a voyage on the high seas ||
The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (Guide, Book 2) by Mackenzi Lee — Guys … it even has “piracy” in the title. Though not the whole story takes place at sea, a significant amount does — and some epic scenes during their adventures while at sea!
|| A book set down in a murky river or a jungle ||
The Jungle Books by Rudyard Kipling — It’s been a while since I’ve read this … but yes, Kipling’s novel DOES take place in the jungle. I bet there’s a murky river or two in there as well.
|| A book with a frostbitten atmosphere ||
White Fang by Jack London — Well, the story takes place in Canada; the Yukon to be more specific. So yes … it’s bloody well COLD!!
|| A book with a rough or isolated terrain ||
Z for Zachariah by Robert C. O’Brien — Oh wow … it’s been YEARS since I’ve read this. But I remember how creepy yet intriguing it was! I may need to re-read this one. But yes … nuclear war destroyed planet? Definitely some rough AND isolated terrain.
HINTERLANDS & COWBOYS
|| A book with a Western-esque setting ||
I’ve ALWAYS wanted to read a good Western or Western-esque book … but I really haven’t seen many people review any. So if ANY of you have suggestions, please let me know!!
|| A book across sweeping desert sands ||
All the Wind in the World by Samantha Mabry — This may have not ended up being my cup of tea, but it’s still a really neat story. And the setting LITERALLY takes place in the desert … which I don’t envy of for the characters at all …
WILD & UNTAMED
|| A book set in the heart of the woods ||
The Calling (Darkness Rising, Book 2) by Kelley Armstrong — firstly, this series takes place in a more rural area of British Columbia … so, it’s basically ALL part of the forest! Secondly, this book in particular is LARGELY in the forest, which I totally love!
|| A whimsical book shrouded in magic ||
Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle, Book 1) by Christopher Paolini — There’s A LOT of magic going on in this novel. From magical beasts to casting powerful spells, this series has it all.
