From the Vault - Spring Break Settings

Every Monday we post a reading/writing-related question for our followers, and at the end of the month, one lucky commenter is selected to choose a title from our Vault. Whatever we have available: ARCs, signed books, awesome new releases... OR the monthly winner may select any one book to be ordered for him/her from the Book Depository

Today's question --> Sticking with the Spring Break theme... In which YA novel's setting would you most like to vacation?

Matthew - Wow. Tough one. I really like Fantasy, but I don't read that much YA Fantasy. I guess I'll go with STORMDANCER, since I just love that setting, even though it's not all that beautiful or anything.

Alexandra - Other than Hogwarts (obviously), I would love to visit the worlds in the following: INCARCERON by Catherine Fisher, BURN BRIGHT by Marianne de Pierres, DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE by Laini Taylor, and SABRIEL by Garth Nix.

Alison - Any setting with a beach and a beach house. And serene blue-green waters. And temperatures that only fluctuate between 70˚ and 90˚F.

Tracey - Definitely not a dystopian, that’s for certain. I’d love to hop right into ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS’s setting. Paris is always a good idea.

Jaime - Well, I read a lot of YA sci-fi and fantasy, so I can pretty much say that I wouldn’t like to visit most of the settings featured because: strife galore! I’d have to go with DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE’s Prague or ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS’s Paris, because they’re both beautiful and rich in history and culture.

Sarah - Well, Hogwarts, obviously. But Kristin Rae's WISH YOU WERE ITALIAN (available in May!!) has an amazing Italian setting that I think everyone would love to visit, me included.

Katy – Of course I’d jump on the Hogwarts Express if I could, but if I’m sticking to the Muggle world, I’d love to travel the same islands as Bria from Kirsten Hubbard’s WANDERLOVE.

Leigh - Any Sarah Dessen novel. Major fan here. 

Your turn! In which YA novel's setting would you most like to vacation?
