Reading Rendezvous: is a weekly feature created by the Fern Team for the Book Blogger Creativity Project that acts as a travel guide, highlighting places we would like to visit and recommending books that take place there.
In August, I joined Nori @ ReadWriteLove28’s Book Blogger Creativity Project. The idea was to put together groups of new and “seasoned” bloggers and have them come up with a new weekly feature that people could use on their blogs.
My team was Team Fern (why Fern, I still do not know/don’t remember) but it’s a great group that I’ve had a lot of fun planning this out with! We decided to do a travel theme, picking locations from various books and highlighting them.
For our first post, we decided to pick an author from our home “state” (I’m a proud Canadian and we have provinces, not states) as a way to get to know everyone else on the team! My author is the AMAZING Canadian Author Lesley Livingston (hailing from Toronto, Ontario) and I picked her Wondrous Strange Trilogy‘s (as well as its spin-off series: Starling Trilogy) setting of New York City.
Places to Visit:
Not only is this a HUGE part of the Wondrous Strange universe (it holds the gate to the faerie world), it is one of the best things about NYC! When you are there, you forget that you are even in one of the biggest and busiest cities in the world!
Highlights: Shakespeare’s Statue 😉
I’m a major theatre buff, though I have no desire to be an actress like Kelley from Wondrous Strange! I couldn’t act my way out of a paper bag if I tried. But NYC has SO MANY great shows!
Highlights: Phantom of the Opera
–The Metropolitan Museum of Art–
I’ve been to quite a few of the museum’s in NYC, but the Met is my favourite! I still have rooms I have to explore there despite going twice! They have a little bit of everything for everyone!
Highlights: Monet, rooftop Terrance
