Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
There’s the magical, wonderful worlds of literature – and then there’s the ones you’d never touch with a ten-foot pole. Here are some fictional worlds I’d never want to live in!
- Panem from Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games. I don’t even think anyone would need an explanation for this one!
- Perdido Beach from Gone by Michael Grant. Eesh. Creepy doesn’t do it justice.
- The world from The Maze Runner series by James Dashner.
- The world of The Darkest Minds series by Alexandra Bracken.
- The Blood of Eden world, by Julie Kagawa. Vampires, and horrible plague-like diseases? Count me out.
- The Mirrorworld from Cornelia Funke’s Mirrorworld – although that’s sort of fifty-fifty. Would my curiosity overcome my common sense? (Read: would my love for Jacob and creepy things overcome my common sense?)
- Westeros from George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire. Again, no explanations necessary.
- The Seraph Empire from Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone. They certainly don’t sound like angels.
- The Faerie realm from Holly Black’s Modern Faerie Tales. Just… no.
- Hong Kong in Anthony Horowitz’s Power of Five series (Necropolis particularly.) Forget about alternate universe Hong Kong, I can’t even stomach real Hong Kong because of this book.
