7 Fictional Places To Visit During The Holidays

The week of Christmas happens to be my year-end break. Most people utilize this time to go out on a trip. As a bibliophile, I’m more interested in fictional trips than real-world tours. What better way to usher in the new year than through reading? Here are my picks for the vacation.

1. Discworld

The Discworld

I’ve read only 2 of the dozens of books in this series by Sir Terry Pratchett and I liked them both. I loved the imagination, the relevance to the real world and the sarcastic humour. The later books are supposed to be better than the initial ones. So, I’m eager to give them a try.

2. Hogwarts

Dhogwarts

I don’t even have to explain why Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling is magical. I love the writing style, the characters, plot, dialogue, basically everything about the series. The movies may be awesome, but the books are way better. I can reread this over and over again and still be amazed by it. In fact, I even wrote a post about what one can learn from visiting Hogwarts.

3. Westeros

Westeros HBO

Song of Fire and Ice by George R. R. Martin is one series I’m super excited about. I’ve been hearing a lot of positive comments about this series from my friends even before it was optioned. However, considering the author takes a long time to churn out the books and there are two more to be published, I will probably not start this anytime soon. I hate finishing a book in two days and waiting for the next book for a whole year.

4. Middle Earth

Middleearth

Lord of the rings by J. R. R. Tolkien is absolutely brilliant. It is on the top of my “To Be Reread” list.

5. Panem

Yes, I still haven’t read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I read a sample and loved it. I certainly wouldn’t want to live in Panem, but a visit should be thrilling.

6. Narnia

The Chronicles of Narnia (Chronicles of Narnia, #1-7)

Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis depicts a lovely land full of intriguing characters. The “books are always better than the movies” law which every bibliophile swears by is applicable to this series as well.

7. Wonderland

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

You are never too old to read Alice’s adventures in wonderland. Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece is more than just a children’s book.
