  1. Love this post. I’ve been trying to work on settings in the last few months and practise them part of the story.

    ooo that’s a really good question! i think it’d be the LORD OF THE RINGS series. Even without the movies I could easily envision myself there. Or even LION WITCH AND THE WARDROBE. (trying to think of L books :)).

    Or wait, what about LOST HORIZON?

  2. The Shining had a good setting too I thought and yes, that picture makes me feel very chilly!

    1. Room 217 or room 237? 😉

  3. Look at you building up hype for two books at once 😛 All this winter imagery could double as a writing prompt. Thank you for the advice, as always! Let me provide a link for a website you’ve definitely never heard of before:

      What a wonderful website you have there! I especially like those debut author interviews.

  4. I do like an accurate setting. Sometimes I feel like “ugh, I would never live there”, but if it is well done, then that was probably the whole point (especially in dystopias). 🙂

    1. Sometimes, okay most of the time, I get caught up in why the people do live there. Like in the Hunger Games. How did they get stuck in those districts? And then I look at our world and think, oh, well… yikes, I can see it.

  5. For best settings, I’d choose Lord of the Rings, although in a different genre my read of 2018, Code Name Verity (Code Name Verity #1) by Elizabeth E. Wein, captured the setting of WWII Occupied France and ‘siege’ Britain brilliantly.

    1. Very cool! Rarely hear about location done well in historical. Good choice!

  6. Setting is very important. Love your description 🙂 Favourite setting? Hogwarts, of course!
