I’m kind of a sucker for unique and interesting locations in books. In each of the books below, the characters find themselves in very strange places and have to figure out how to navigate their way out- without dying, of course…
The Magicians, Lev Grossman
(Magical World of Fillory)
When I first read this book I wasn’t sure I liked it. Parts of Fillory came off as juvenile and bizarre – and not in a good way. I really couldn’t understand why the world was painted that way. Then I watched the TV series and everything seemed a bit less silly and I could see the irony and humor in parts.
The Martian, Andy Weir
Does it get any stranger than being stranded on Mars and having to figure out how to survive long enough to may, possibly be rescued?
Excavation, James Rollins
This book takes place in an ancient temple in the Amazon. The temple is full of scary booby traps and it’s not much better on the outside with a jungle full of bloody thirsty natives.
Six of Crows, Leigh Bardugo
(Military Stronghold- Ice Court)
The Ice Court is a pretty amazing place and it’s interesting to read how the gang in Six of Crows plans to penetrate it’s forces.
