T5W – Settings I Want to See More Of

t5w new header

It’s that time of the week again when I bring you the Top 5 Wednesdays, created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know how T5W works you can go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. This week theme is Settings You Want to See More OfI almost didn’t participate this week because I didn’t know what settings I should choose and because I had no ideas but in the end I got a few settings that I would love to see more and I ended up writing this post. Here’s my picks for this week:

Greek Mythology

I love greek mythology and I love retellings so I would love to read more books that were retellings of greek mythology. Something like ACOMAF that was a retelling of Hades and Persephone. How awesome would it be if we had more books like that?


It’s not a secret that I love Outlander and that I love Scotland so I would love to read more books set in Scotland. It would be even better if it was set in the 1700s.


I love the 1920s. The fashion is amazing and so is the music and all the parties and because of that I would love to have more books set in the 1920s. Something like The Great Gatsby style. I love that book and I would probably love almost every book set in the 20s.

Russian Empire

One of my favorite parts of A Thousand Pieces of You was when Marguerite and Paul were in the Russiaverse. The Russiaverse was kind of like the Russia Empire and I loved it and because of that I need more books with that setting.


Japanese culture has always fascinated me and I think it would be an amazing setting for books. I would read that without any doubt, especially if it was in the 1800s and if it had geishas or samurai. I need a book with this setting now.



These are some Settings I Want to See More Of. What about you? What settings would you like to see more in books? 😀

  1. What is it with people wanting more books set in 1920’s, I’ve seen this on several lists and I don’t get it. Maybe it’s because I’m not American?

    As for Japan, I’ve read several books set there this year and I can’t say I fall in love in any of them, but there was one pretty good one – “Greeth”. But it’s set in more of a dystopian-future setting.

    • I’m not American too. I loved The Great Gatsby and the 20s setting. That’s why I would love to read more books with that settings.
      I think I only read one book that was set in Japan and I loved it too. That’s why I would like to try more
