Top 5 Bookish Maps

Hey, happy Sunday! I hope you all are having a nice relaxing weekend with lots of reading time. I know I’m certainly feeling the pressure to finish my TBR before the end of the month is up, it doesn’t help that I’ve been feeling unwell since yesterday morning.

Today I’m here with a fun kind of post, my Top 5 Bookish Maps. I don’t know about you all, but for me there’s nothing more exciting than opening a book and seeing it has a map in it! I mean sure, some maps are really simple and some are complex, or you might even get 2 maps. But they are all always so beautiful and exciting to look at.

So without further ado….here are my Top 5 Bookish Maps.

1. Throne of Glass – Erilea

Original map of Erilea from Throne of Glass
Updated version of the Erilea map from the Throne of Glass Collectors Edition

As you can see from both of these maps, Throne of Glass has such a vast world, and frankly one of my favourite maps of all time. The original map is in the original Throne of Glass books, where the updated more detailed map is from the Throne of Glass collectors edition. I really wish I had a poster of this updated version on my bedroom wall because it’s so stunning, the amount of detail is incredible and really makes it super easy to place where characters are when reading the books.

2. Grisha Trilogy – Ravka

Fun fact – I have a giant version of this map on my bedroom wall. It’s so beautiful and I think, goes well with the whole vibe of the Grisha Trilogy. I know they have a new map for Six of Crows duology, which I may also include in this top 5 because it’s just so gorgeous.

3. A Court of Thorns and Roses – Prythian

Again, another gorgeous map which I have on my bedroom wall. I love how this map clearly shows the different Courts and how it says Mortal Lands. In a way this map reminds me a bit like the map of England with Ireland on the side.

4. Children of Blood and Bone – Orisha

Another map I have on my wall which is super gorgeous. I haven’t read this book yet but I’m so excited for when I do. The map is so beautiful and I hope it stays true to the book. The amount of detail here is amazing and really brings the map to life.

And so here we are…at the last one and it is….

5. Six of Crows – Ketterdam

For some reason I couldn’t find a very clear picture of this map but it is still so beautiful. It looks pretty detailed and complex, I can’t wait to read this duology so I can figure out all the places and what they mean!

So there we have it, my Top 5 Bookish Maps. Obviously there are others I like too but these are my favourite so far.

Just before I finish, I would also like to give a mention to the Shadowhunter maps, they are truly stunning aswell. Each series within the Shadowhunter world has its own gorgeous map. Here they are:

What are some of your favourite maps from books? Are there any you don’t like?

  1. I love a map in a book! It’s always a little bit disappointing when you get a fantasy book with no map; they just make it a bit easier to get immersed in the world as you can picture the places and how they fit together a bit better.
