Tuesday Tagline #150

Were they the first to discover this new world- or the last? 

This is my 150th Tagline post- hard to believe. Seems like I just started this feature yesterday. Thanks for reading! 



  
 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is Top Ten Settings I'd Like To See More Of (Or At All). You can go a few different ways with this- I'm going to go with actual settings as in fictional worlds. This will draw mostly from SF/F since that's mostly what I read, or I should say most worlds I'd want to explore are from SF/F books. Anyway- here we go!  

 The Winds of Winter (A Song of Ice and Fire, #6)

I'm looking forward to seeing the far northern lands- I'm sure we're going farther north in this series yet- and so many other aspects of Martin's world are fascinating (and The World of Ice and Fire teases so much). 

Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-Earth

I always wanted to know more about the unexplored lands to the east and south of Middle-earth. Where did the Blue Wizards go exactly? 

The Cats of Tanglewood Forest (Newford, #18) 

I feel like there are a lot more magical stories to tell about this forest. 

The Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh (Winnie-the-Pooh, #1-4)

I'd love to see more of the Hundred Aker wood. 

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers, #1)

The Wayfarers universe 

Rogue Protocol (The Murderbot Diaries, #3)

The Zeppelin Deception (Stoker & Holmes, #5)
  
More steampunk worlds!

Golden City Vol. 7: The Lost Children

I love this dystopian world! 

  Dark Matter

Did anyone else want to know what was beyond that door?  

Obsidian and Stars (Ivory and Bone, #2)

More prehistoric settings!

  1. Forests are such wonderful settings - especially for middle grade. I love Northern settings too. I'd love to read a dark mystery set in Iceland. Surely one exists!

  2. Yes to more Middle-Earth and steampunk worlds. I feel like steampunk took off really quick and sort of fizzled out, so I'd like to see it make its revival.

  3. I haven't read any novels (maybe one) that I would consider "steampunk," but it does seem like a REALLY fun world. I also wouldn't ever say no to visiting Hundred Acre Woods. :)

  4. Yes more steampunk. I think there is more steampunk but so much tends to fly under the radar which is a shame.

  5. I'd like to see more of Middle-Earth explored because you just know there's so much backstory that's not in Lord of the Rings - but I can't quite face any of Tolkien's other stuff. Would love to see more Narnia too!

  6. Yeah, I wish the unfinished tales could have been, well, finished, too! Tolkien had so many ideas that he didn't have time to wrap up properly. Also, I really wish he'd told us what happened to the ent-wives. I like to imagine a happy ending for the ent race somehow.

    My TTT.

  7. Wow, prehistoric settings is definitely one I have never come across!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I ALWAYS want more of the Hundred Acre Woods!

  9. Great list! I like to see more of Middle Earth as well, and I bet prehistoric settings would be a lot of fun too. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  10. Excellent list. We need to see more to the left and right of where we have been.

  11. The Wayfarer's universe for the win; and she did say in one of her newsletters that she isn't done with that world, so we are lucky! 🚀

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love the cover for Obsidian and Stars.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think we all want the final GoT book! I wonder if we will ever really get it. :(

    ReplyDelete
  14. 100 Acre Wood! Great answer. I would go there immediately.

  15. Yes to more prehistoric settings! (And I love to see more of the unexplored lands surrounding Middle-earth, too.)

  16. I like your take on the topic. I didn't think of super specific places I wanted to see more of! Now you've got me thinking about all the doors and paths untaken in the books I've read over the years ...

    Happy TTT!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Lots of interesting places. Not sure I'd want to visit a George RR Martin book as I would probably be killed in no time. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  18. Pooh's home always intrigued me. I would love to see more of it, and meet more of its inhabitants.

    ReplyDelete
  19. More Middle Earth would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think I would like to know more about those steampunk worlds! And Pooh! Inspired addition Greg!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I totally agree about the lands around Middle-Earth! It'd also be so neat to explore more of the Hundred Aker wood. And more steampunk worlds!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Prehistoric settings is something I definitely want to check out more! Hope to read Julie Eshbaugh's books soon.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Dark Matter - yes! I want to know what's behind ALL the doors!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. From the little I know of GoT it has a very interesting universe going on! Though I feel so bad for everyone who has been waiting what feels like 10 years for the next novel in a particular series of his. I have a hard enough time waiting a year, imagine 3? It's a running joke at this point, right? :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love your spin on this week's TTT topic and love the idea of exploring the far North in George R.R. Martin's world.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I can't get over 2 actual novels for a mere 35 cents!!!!(lol) Wow! Hugs and Happy Thursday to you! RO

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yes, I definitely want to know what was behind that door.

    Plus, I'd just like to know more about the Blue Wizards in general.
