Hi friends! Today I’m back with another super fun Tag Tuesday, hosted by one of my favorite bloggers Shanah @ Bionic Books!
To answer that question floating around your brain: yes that title is a Dora reference and no I haven’t lost my sanity*. BUT today’s post is all about my Top 5 bookish maps! I’ve literally forgotten every map I’ve ever seen so don’t hold me to my choices haha. And sorry about the horrible quality pictures, I have no excuse. So let’s do this thing.
*how can you lose something you never had
Pretty Much All Ravenspire Maps
Because PRETTY. I mean, the colors are different for each book and the detail is magnificent! How could you not want to stare for hours.
They’re not particularly colorful but there’s something so simplistic and interesting about the Ember maps! I mean, sure I’m tempted to burn away certain parts ( *cough*wherever the Commandment is) but it’s still so amazing.
The new paperbacks. I love the format, and how simplistic the black and white drawings are! Also there’s mini maps of the cities for those of us who know nothing of NYC, London, or Los Angeles (me) so that’s a big incentive!
Six of Crows
LOOKIE. Another example of black and white but man, are these beautiful. And maybe I’m slightly prejudiced because my Crow Children and Nikolai but THE POINT IS THE MAPS AND NOT KAZ.
The Seven Realms
Somehow I’m just a sucker for magical, fantasy places? This map has a lot of that. AND it reminds me of Graceling (which I intensely disliked) but on a better scale. WITH BETTER MEMORIES.
