Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Historical/Futuristic Settings

Top

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I’m going to split this up between both my favorite historical settings and my favorite futuristic settings!

  • Victorian Era England – There is something so alluring about this time period despite it’s many…many flaws. The dress, the code of ethic among the elite, the huge division between classes…there is so much there to work with.
  • Medieval Scotland – Scotland is a gorgeous country with a rich history full of hearty people, strong warriors, and rich lore.
  • Ancient Egypt – This is a rather large time period of Egypt, but it’s one full of pharaohs and secrets. We know practically nothing about the pharoahs and their family on a personal level, so needless to say it’s a lot of fun to speculate. Also who doesn’t like the huge pantheon of gods and rich history/lore that the country has to offer?
  • Mars – Mars itself isn’t very futuristic, but put a civilization on it and I’m so there.
  • Newcago, Steelheart Universe – There is some pretty cool tech and tons of super villians.
  • Mass Effect Universe – So this was technically a video game first, BUT there are novels and graphic novels out now so I’m counting it. This is one of my all time favorite sci-fi settings. The tech is awesome, the awesome variety of aliens along with their really cool cultures, and plenty of adventures to be had.

    Oooh! Medieval Scotland sounds fun!

  2. I still have to read Red Rising and Golden Son. I feel really bad about not having the time. I have to quit over extending myself with ARCs. I also need to read some Sanderson. 🙂
