Alicia Ellsworth | 157 comments I just happen to be reading The Girl Who Drank the Moon, which would be perfect for a place I won't ever visit (since it doesn't exist)

But the A Court of Thorns and Roses series came to mind

Melissa | 267 comments The Battle of Midway - Had this book already checked out of the library, and now it seems perfect for this prompt. They don't just let people visit Midway anymore. It's a nature preserve these days, and it appears the tourism program was ended in 2012.

I read a lot of SFF and I'll never go to outer space, so this one is easy for me. Last year I made a list of 14 books I really wanted to read this year (and I'm really failing at finishing that list, but that's beside the point). Downbelow Station is on that list. This is the perfect EXTRA push to read it.

Lilith (lilithp) | 821 comments I read Little Lies. I love Heather Gudenkauf. Heather did not disappoint.
Takes place in Iowa.
I've travelled a lot in my life, but I realize I always seem to be on a coast.

Patricia Angerer | 4 comments I am reading Agatha Christie’s They All Came to Baghdad for another challenge. Fits perfectly for me.

Sheri | 779 comments Do totally fictional places that one CAN'T go count? I did read Harrow the Ninth. And i'm trying to make this one be "no stress" and fit in books i was going to read anyhow

I've decided they count, since I'm planning a SF book for this category!

I would say so. I used The Restaurant at the End of the Universe for this one since I'll probably never go to Milliways. Probably.

You'll probably never go to space.

Quite certain I will never visit the Supreme Court. Great book and great lady!
