The Book Nook

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.

This week’s recommended discussion: books with memorable locations. Real locations or fictional ones, are there settings for books that are rendered more vividly that others? How do authors do a good job of creating locations, and how well do you as a reader imagine them?

One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone (the OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread).

upcoming topics:
5/15: writing about non-literary arts (music, dance, art, etc.) (h/t to troubled by nouns)
5/22: wrong description on jacket (h/t to a quiet storm)
5/29: beach/vacation reads (h/t to MisterSplendiferous)
