T5W: Settings I Would Like to See More of


It’s time for Top 5 Wednesdays, a weekly meme created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know more or join as well, just go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. Today’s topic is Settings I Would Like to See More of, which was both difficult and easy at the same time. Here are my setting-wishes.

Contemporary Vienna

Authors either seem to associate Vienna with it’s imperial time or during WWII, but I just want a nice and normal (not typical Austrian-sadness and cynicism) contemporary novel, best case also YA. And I mean targeted at 17 year-olds and not 12. I want people to find a good medium and represent my hometown.


Underwater World without Mermaids

Does this sound weird? I like water and the ocean … maybe I just want something Atlantis-ish? I don’t even know, but I don’t want to write it myself, so I expect someone else to come up with it.

Cut off Civilization Living In Forest

Whenever scientist find a group of people living somewhere in the wild, cut off from everything, I am just so fascinated with how they live. Why not make up a whole book about them?

Greek Mythology Inspired

Everything that has a touch of Greek mythology is just awesome!


Oregon has stolen my heart and I love it and people don’t use it enough as a backdrop, but it is gorgeous. I shall always squeal if it is mentioned!

What are some settings you would like to see? Tell me all about it!

  1. Cut off civilisation living in the forest? I’d read that any day! If you ever read a book with this setting, you have to tell me haha 😀

  2. Did I just see Atlantis? YES PLEASE. I’m not the biggest fan of mermaids and so I read a book that looks at underwater life but if we had an Atlantis like setting I’d be all over it.

    I’d also love to see a contemporary set in Vienna, it’s a city I’ve always wanted to visit so I’m pretty sure a modern day contemporary would end up with me hopping on a plane so I can see everything in person haha.

    My heart will never not be drawn to Greek mythology so I will devour any book set in that timeline.

    • I have nothing against mermaids, but I just think that a more Atlantis-ish setting would be even more interesting.
      I really want someone to write a contemporary in Vienna that’s not for pre-schoolers or old people hahaha

  3. Cut off civilization? Yes! That sounds amazing!
    Also I’ve never thought about a book set in Oregon, but now that you’ve said it, I want it.
