Favorite Settings for Novels
This is kind of a difficult topic for me to discuss because I'm not entirely sure I have a favorite. Fantasy is my favorite genre, so I love a made up world type of setting, but I'm not sure if it's the setting that makes me love the genre so much.
I think almost anything can be an interesting setting, if done right. Aside from fantasy worlds I really enjoy novels that are set somewhere near the ocean or a body of water. Particularly if the water plays a large role in the novel. I also love a story set around horses. Racing, jumping, dressage, it doesn't matter.
Another setting I really like is the road. Travel adventures or road trip novels are fascinating to me. I love traveling and seeing new places, so reading about characters traveling just feeds my wander lust. And if the covers have maps on them, that's a bonus.
So this is a short post, but I'm not sure what else I can really say. If I like the characters I tend to not mind the setting much. What about you? Do you have a favorite setting? Let me know in the comments!
