TTT – Bookish Worlds I Wouldn’t Want to Live In

Hello humans! Another amazing theme for a Top Ten Tuesday post (and not too difficult for someone who reads a lot of YA…). I don’t think there are many bookish worlds I would want to live in!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is an awesome way to discover new bloggers who like the same kind of books as you do!

The Extinction Trials

My Review

The Extinction Trials S M Wilson

There may be a slight theme in these, just a heads up. As cool as it would be to see dinosaurs in real life, I feel like there would be a lot of running involved and, as an asthmatic, I would quickly end up toast!

State of Sorrow

My review

State of Sorrow Melinda Salisbury

I already spend much of every day in tears, so I don’t think the Court of Tears is for me (as much as I would love to meet Sorrow herself).

All Rights Reserved

This is a dystopia that definitely wouldn’t work for me! I’m too much of a chatterbox to limit my words for fear of enormous debt!

My Review

Everless Sara Holland (us cover)

Using my blood to pay for things? No thank you!

Daughter of the Burning City

My Review

Daughter of the Burning City Amanda Foody UK

A city that is constantly smokey? Probably not the best idea…asthma again, sigh.

My Review

illuminae Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

As much as I love these books and these characters, the idea of being at the whim of a homicidal AI is too terrifying to bear thinking about.

A Darker Shade of Magic

My Review

A Darker Shade of Magic V E Schwab Victoria

Ok, so is this cheating? I would want to live in this world, but not if I couldn’t guarantee that I would have magical powers, otherwise I might as well just move to London and I’m not here for that!

For similar reasons to All Rights Reserved, there is no way I could cut my vocabulary to under 100 words per day!

Red Sister

I love these characters, but the idea of living in a world being gradually covered with ice does not in any way appeal!

Mortal Engines

My Review

Mortal engines Philip Reeve The Hungry City

Living in constant fear of being eaten by a giant carnivorous city? Perhaps not.

  1. There are so many amazing fantasy lands that I’d love to live in, but I know I’d be a magicless peasant or would get trampled in a war 😥
