[Book Blogger Hop] Two Fictitious Towns I Would Love To Live In


Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, where you answer a question and join a "hop". The purpose is to help bloggers discover and get to know one another.

For this week's question, Elizabeth @ Silver's Reviews asks:

Is there a fictitious town in a book that you would love to live in? What makes it appealing?
My answer:

Oh for sure! I would love to live in either Hogsmeade or Bagend, for pretty obvious reasons.

Hogsmeade would be so much fun. But of course I would need to be a wizard if I were to live here! I would love to be so immersed in the community.

Bag End would be such a beautiful and lovely place to live. Filled with relaxation, books, tea, and fun!


Thanks for reading!

  1. I can't think of any off the top of my head but I've read some cozy mysteries where I wouldn't mind living in the towns. However, if we were talking TV, it would totally be Stars Hollow. I'm a diehard Gilmore Girls fan!

  2. I'm not familiar with Bagend, but I would definitely love to live in Hogsmeade, too! So much to do, and definitely so much fun. ♥

  3. I'd definitely go with Hogsmeade, or really anywhere in the wizarding world because then I'd be a witch and that would be awesome!!

  4. Relaxation is my cup of tea. :)

    Sounds like a great place.

  5. Bag End for me! And a nice cozy hobbit hole...

  6. I think I would pick Wizarding London over Hogsmeade, although it's a little bigger than a "town"! If I had to see Hogwarts every day but not actually go in I'd be perpetually jealous of current students!

  7. Those are definitely great answers! I would absolutely love to live in Hogsmeade as well, though it didn't cross my mind when I was answering this week's question myself. It's fun to see the answers that others have shared because it reminds you of towns that you may've forgotten. Thank you for sharing!!

  8. There are so many that spring to mind! Torminster from Elizabeth Goudge's book A City of Bells; or Lud-in-the Mist from the eponymous book by Hope Mirrlees; or the alternate Oxford of The Golden Compass, to name a few. I'm a pretty Anglophile reader, it seems.

  9. What a great pick with Hogsmeade. That would be fun. The first one that came to my mind was Velaris from the ACOTAR series. The descriptions made it sound so beautiful.

    1. :-D Oh, great pick! For some reason, I imagined Capri, Italy when I read the ACOTAR books/.

  10. Yeah, these would both be great!

  11. How amazing would it be to be a wizard? Though I suppose if we'd always lived that way it'd just be normal. *shrug* Happy reading!

  12. I haven't read a book with the perfect setting for me to live in because I seem to like problematic books like post apocalyptic and dystopians ahah also I don't have the best luck in the world so I would probably die in a place like hogwarts even though I would see the appeal in it.

    1. Bag End is the Hobbit-hole in Hobbiton from the Lord Of The Rings series :) I got really specific with that pick haha

  15. I agree with Barb above. I'd totally love to live in Stars Hollows if fictional TV towns can be included. Otherwise, I agree with Hogwarts/Hogsmeade. That would be so much fun :)

  16. Erica I also picked Hogsmeade, and I didn't even put ALL the things I'd love about living there.
