Reading Rendezvous: London, England [2]


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.

I haven’t been able to do this feature on a weekly basis, but I plan on doing it on a bimonthly place. It’s really hard to come up with places that various book series take place because they A) take place in a fictional world or B) happen in the same major cities.

This week, my inspiration comes from one of my all time favourite series: The Infernal Devices. It’s kind of a six degrees of separation thing I have going on, seeing as my inaugural Reading Rendezvous took place in New York City, the setting for the first Mortal Instrument Series.

I have yet to go to London, England but it has been on my Bucket List for YEARS! Here are a few places I want to go and see.

Places to Visit:

–London Eye–

Ferris wheels always use to freak me out when I was a kid at the fair but now I appreciate the great views they provide of the city. This on is so iconic that I’ve wanted to go on it for years!

 

–Buckingham Palace–

Although Canada is its own country, we still recognize the Queen as our sovereign even though she really has no power in our political decisions. I still think it is a really cool tradition that we recognize our origins and would love to see the palace!


London Underground Sign - (c) Solar Worlds Photography–The Tube–

Call me weird, but when I visit other cities, I love taking their public transportation. It think it’s really cool how people get around and the Tube is one of the most interesting subway systems in the world.

Other Books Set in the Big Apple:

Ruby Red (Precious Stone Trilogy, #1) The Name of the Star (Shades of London, #1) The Girl on the Train

Reading Rendezvous: What is That? + New York City [1]


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:

–Central Park–

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 😉

–Broadway–

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

Other Books Set in the Big Apple:

Beastly The Marriage Bargain (Marriage to a Billionaire, #1) Beautiful Stranger (Beautiful Bastard, #2)
