TTT: Top Ten Books You Would Like to Step Into

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Tuesday Freebie — YOUR CHOICE OF TOPIC.

Oh dear. Another free choice. I need structure! I need guidance!

My boys and I have just finished up The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, where twins Alex and Conner get sucked into their fairy tale book (review coming soon!). Alex and Conner are living among the characters in their continuing lives after their fairy tale endings. The twins are trying to collect items to perform The Wishing Spell to get themselves out of the book and back home. This book was the inspiration for my Top Ten Tuesday choice this week…

Top Ten Books You Would Like to Step Into

What if you could be transported into any story (with a means of coming back out, of course)? Which books would you choose?

You Knew I would Pick This

1. Harry Potter. Because who doesn’t want to get their letter to Hogwarts?


Blast from the Past

2. A Nero Wolfe Mystery. 1930’s New York City. I’d love to go for a ride with Archie in his convertible roadster to see the city, and then dine with Wolfe in the evening. Followed up with a glass of beer and talk of murder, of course.

Maisie Dobbs3. Maisie Dobbs. Another outing to the 1930’s, but this time it’s off to London, England to see the sights.

Children’s Time

4. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass. So many adventures! Following the White Rabbit (what could a rabbit possibly be late for?), a Mad Tea Party, the Cheshire Cat. And to leave, all you have to do is wake up. At least in the first book.


5. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Yes, the Wicked Witch of the West is pretty scary (if you don’t have water handy). But it would be worth her wrath to spend some time in Oz and befriend the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion.


Hanging with theΒ Locals

6. Richard Jury Series. The village and residents of Long Pidd are what keep me coming back to the Richard Jury novels. I would love to spend an afternoon at the Jack and Hammer with Melrose Plant and company enjoying their banter while we sat at the table in the front window of the pub.

(OK, that clip totally wasn’t Richard Jury at all but it was Hobbits. In a pub. Drinking pints. So it works. Right?)

7. Hamish MacBeth. Lochdubh in the highlands of Scotland is another small village that I would love to visit. So many locals to chat with throughout the day and maybe a hike in the beautiful country surrounding the village before having a nice dinner at the Italian restaurant.

Just for Fun

8. The Princess Bride. What’s so great about this book? I’ll let Peter Falk tell you. As you wish.

British Detectives

9. Murder on the Orient Express. Enjoy a nice train ride while watching one of the greatest British detectives of all time, Hercule Poirot, in action.

10. And last, but certainly not least – Sherlock Holmes…but could I choose the modern Benedict Cumberbatch rendition?

Watson Sherlock Christmas Special

    • Yeah, who doesn’t want to go to Hogwarts? πŸ™‚

      I didn’t do Neverland because I wanted Disney’s version, not the book version. I love how Disney combines elements of both Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass in to their film. They are both great stories.


  1. Oh my gosh. What would I do to go to the real Hogwarts! The world of HP would have definitely been on the top of my list. πŸ˜€ And yes, Sherlock! I don’t think I’ve seen a T10T post of yours without Benedict being mentioned. XD

  2. I feel like it would be both really fun and really terrifying to visit Wonderland. It’s a cool place, for sure, but it’s also full of giant things that should be small and small things that should be big and absolutely insane people. So – fun and terrifying. πŸ™‚

  3. Brilliant choices! Definitely want to go to Hogwarts, and I know it wasn’t exactly on your list – but Hobbiton! Not for the beer though – for the mushrooms. And I’d have to add Pride and Prejudice – for the frocks and the dancing (and Darcy)…
