Top Ten Tuesday – bookish worlds I’d want to/never want to live In


I am splitting up this TTT so that I can talk about worlds I’d love to live in and worlds that are a big no-no for meAs usual, Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl hosts these weekly challenges (so, see her blog for more info).

5 worlds I’d love to live in

  1. Alice in Wonderland is one of my all-time favorite books and I would give anything to jump down that rabbit hole and meet the Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, and the Queen of Hearts. Oh yeah, and I am very partial toward Tweedledee and Tweedledum from Through the Looking Glass.
  2. Who here wouldn’t want to be a wizard in the Harry Potter stories? I specifically like the idea of being an animagi!
  3. I want to be an Antari and go in between the Londons of the Shades of Magic trilogy or at the very least I’d love to sail along on that famous pirate ship of Alucard’s.
  4. I would love to tag along on the adventures in the Six of Crows series.
  5. A few years ago, I discovered my love for steampunk novels with the Leviathan series and I sure would love to live in that universe. I enjoyed The Clunkers because of the technology but I would want to be a Darwinist for sure.
  6. Ugh whatever, I am adding a No.6 to this list. I adore the heck out of Neverwhere and so would love to live in London Below (as a badass of course!). There’s no way I could leave this one off of this list.

5 worlds I would nope the f*** out of

  1. The idea that we have definite proof that aliens exist and our world going crazy over this scares me. So, no way would I want to be part of The Three-Body Problem universe at this point.
  2. I don’t think I am well-suited for one-on-one combat with people or weird creatures, especially not if it is for the amusement of some stuck-up asshats. Thus, The Hunger Games are on this list.
  3. While I thoroughly enjoyed reading this series, depending on a prince to choose me for a better life would drive me bat-shit crazy, so The Selection world is out for me.
  4. This is not really a world but more of a time period, and even though Kindred involves time travel, which is something that really draws me in, I would not want to live during slavery times in America (or anywhere really).
  5. Good book, terrible futuristic world: InterWorld. I just can’t imagine I would enjoy such a sterile environment despite the fact that it is based on science (and I LOVE science). Maybe the world ruled by magic is better?! But really, all parallel universes in this series are at war, which is utterly no bueno.
