Top 5 Tuesday: Bookish Maps

So this week’s topic for Top 5 Tuesday from Shanah at the Bionic Book Worm is: Bookish Maps or, books with maps in. Once again I will be sticking to talking about books I’ve personally read and loved that have included a map or maps. So here they are:

No. 1 — Hogwarts School (J.K. Rowling)

No. 2 — Narnia (C.S. Lewis)

No. 3 — Discworld (Terry Pratchett)

No. 4 — Guilder (Princess Bride)

No. 5 — Earthsea (Ursula K. LeGuin)

I did have so many more books but, there’s a point where you have to choose just five as this is, after all, the Top 5 Tuesday, and not, Top 24!

Honourable mentions go to: Middle Earth (Lord of the Rings) | The Hundred Acre Wood (Winnie the Pooh) — see, I had to squeeze two more in!

  1. Love your list! I had no idea that the map in Princess Bride was so beautiful! I really need to own my own copy of that book one of these days!
    Thanks for participating 🙂

    • If you get the coffee table, fully illustrated version, it’s gorgeous. I have quite a few what are considered young books because of their illustrations. Memories of childhood. 😉

      And thanks for stopping by to comment. I love the Top 5 Tuesday Tag!

      Thanks, Sophie. I’ve really enjoyed seeing everyone else’s choices. Maps and books I never even knew about.

      Ah, that’s okay, not everyone has read the other three either. Terry Pratchett is great fantasy, and the Princess Bride brilliant. While Earthsea by Ursula K. LeGuin is more YA but still, very enjoyable. Maybe try one … or not. So many books, so little time, right? 😉

    • Oh, I’m a big fan of the man’s work and humour. I sometimes think I fell out of the pages of a Terry Pratchett novel. It might explain a lot. 😉
