Another Top 5 Wednesday post! I know, I’m doing so well keeping up with these. I have to admit that this week’s topic, fictional places you’d take a date to, was much harder for me than the previous ones. I read a lot of fantasy and science fiction, and would absolutely not like to visit 90% of the locations I read about. However, here are 5 exceptions to that rule!
The Night Circus – The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Wouldn’t it be amazing to get to discover the Night Circus with your date? See all the magic for ourselves! I think it would be such a wonderful evening, because there’s so much to discover and do.
Wonka’s Chocolate Factory – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Listen, as a Belgian and frequent consumer of chocolate this would be a dream come true. I won’t drown in the chocolate river, or eat any bubblegum. I just want to see all the magical chocolate goodness!
Hogsmeade – Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Wandering through the streets of Hogsmeade seems like a perfect date too. You could have a butterbeer/hot chocolate/coffee, then shop at Honeydukes and Zonko’s. It would be lovely at any time of year, but during the snowy winters it would be even more magical.
Hobbiton – The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
Hobbiton sounds like such a wonderful place for a date! It could be a pick nick in the fields, walking through the forests, kayaking on the river… I don’t care, it all sounds so beautiful and wonderful! Of course, you have to have a hobbit-style dinner too.
Nevermoor – The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend
I was going to pick Hotel Deucalion at first, but then realized I didn’t want to narrow down my options immediately. There’s so much magic to discover in Nevermoor, I didn’t just want to see the Deucalion.
What do you think of my choices? Do you (dis)agree? Where would you take a date to? I’d love to hear about it!
