Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted every Tuesday by the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks top ten is Top Ten Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books

1. Hogwarts:
Between how detailed the books are, then the movies, and lastly the theme park, The Harry Potter world is definitely the most vivid setting there is. I adore everything about it and wish with my whole heart that it was real.

2. Pannem:
Damn the Capital! haha. While this is a very detailed world, I am so so so so so glad that it is not real.

3. The Maze (Maze Runner series by James Dashner):
I just finished this series and oh boy does this world completely suck, yet I'd love to be able to walk around the Glade and see the Maze.

4. The Hollows (The Hollows series by Kim Harrison):
Besides Harry Potter, I think the Hollows is the most vivid world I have the pleasure of reading about. I can perfectly imagine all the characters, the places, and the whole atmosphere of everything in that world. If I can't live in the Harry Potter world, then I'd definitely want to live in the Hollows world.

5. Chicago (Divergent by Veronica Roth):
After reading this book, who didn't sit there and decide on what faction they would have picked? And then most likely went and took the quiz and see if you were right? BTW, I'm Amity. Haha

6. Fablehaven (Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull):
I thought this world was pretty cool with all of its fantastic creatures. How cool would it be to go into your backyard and see things like faeries, centaurs, and satyrs?

7. Wonderland:
This one needs no introduction. I'm a massive AIW fan and I would love nothing more than to walk around Wonderland for a day, and hopefully avoid the Queen.

8.  The Tunnels (The Host by Stephenie Meyer):
I recently listened to the Host on audiobook for about the 4th time. Every time I read that book, I forget how much I absolutely love it. The world SM created is definitely a different take on aliens. Seriously? Peaceful aliens? But it works. And then all the humans hiding out in massive nature made tunnels underground, creating their own form of society? Amazing. Plus the tunnels have Ian in them <3

9. The Otherworld (Storm Born by Richelle Mead):
I debated about putting this one on the list because it bumped off the Nevernever, but I figured I'd go with a less known series. The faerie world Richelle created is dark yet interesting. I like how when the characters are walking around, it's not always the same layout. I kind of imagine the world like a pop-up book. Sort of like in the old Winnie-the-Pooh movies and how they have to jump from page to page. That is how I picture the Otherworld.

10. Camp Half Blood (Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan):
This is one camp that I'm really glad I don't have to go to. I have no desire to be a demigod, but I love reading about them :)


  1. Love the list! I've only read The Hunger Games and Harry Potter - and agree, both Worlds were spectacular.

  2. Hey, I just finished Fablehaven! I'm not sure I'd want to visit, but it definitely seemed cool. The rest of the places on your list are pretty awesome, too! Here's my Top Ten Tuesday Post!

  3. I really do need to read her Storm Born series, I loved her YA books and I do love reading adult books. I know I would love this series. Great list, I almost put up the Host, but I didn't

  6. I should have added Wonderland to my list. Great choices!

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
