Top Ten Settings I'd Like to See More Of...

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this Tuesday's question is "What are your top ten settings you'd like to see more of in books..."

Here are mine:

1.) Anything on hiking trails: From A Walk in the Woods (Bill Bryson) and Wild (Cheryl Strayed), these types of books are inspiring and I can't get enough of them.

2.) On a similar note, anything regarding Everest. I've read Into Thin Air (Jon Krakauer) and loved it. I want more like this and I have added some to my to-read list.

3.) Amish country - Since my husband is from small-town Pennsylvania right near Lancaster, I have enjoyed reading about the Amish and then seeing them on my trips to see my husband's family.

4.) The ocean - I would love to find a really good book set in Nags Head or Cape Hatteras. I'll be heading to Rodanthe in July and can't wait to be all set up in our very own house this year!! My husband wanted to go to Iceland but we are doing that next year (assuming we don't have a kid strapped to us).

5.) Speaking of, I'd love more settings that include places like Iceland or other places that I haven't been (or don't know a lot about).

6.) Asylums - this might be partly due to my obsession with American Horror Story: They just freak me out but in a good way...

7.) Wars. (What is it good far? Absolutely nothin'. Say it again, y'all!) - I have learned a lot about the Civil War, specifically Gettysburg, and some of WWII but I need more ideas for books on other wars. Feel free to suggest some (preferably historical fiction). I'm sure my BROTHER and FATHER could suggest some. HINT HINT!

8.) Death Row - morbid curiosity. 

9.) Blue Ridge Mountains - pretty much anything set here.

10.) And finally, anything set in the best city in the world (no, NOT New York) - Richmond, VA. Okay, I don't really care about books set in Richmond - just pimping out my hometown.

I don't know if I can read books about hiking trails or mountain climbing, but I love everything else on your list!
