Book Settings ~ The Most Popular Cities

I’ve noticed that a large majority of of the books I’ve read this year and books on my TBR/ARC shelves take place in New York City.  That’s ten books total.  Bachelor Degree, Between Here & April, Schooled, What Happened to Anna K., The Last Summer of You & Me, Sail, Matrimony, The Great Man, Garlic & Sapphires, The New Yorkers, Free Food For Millionaires.  I love NYC and after reading all these books and the few I still have to read, I am ready for a shopping/dining/tourist trip to The Big Apple.  I guess New York City isn’t just major inspiration for songwriters and movie sets.

Have you noticed a repeated pattern in the settings of your recent reads?  Does reading about a place over and over again in one or more books make you want to go there?  If you did go or would go, where would it be to?
