It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic: Top Ten Worlds I’d Never Want To Live In
Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) – Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) – Suzanne Collins
Let’s be honest. No one wants to live in Panem as much as we love The Hunger Games. I guess I wouldn’t be eligible for the reaping NOW but still. Do I really want to live there? No. And according to online quizzes, I’d live in Distrcit 9. I guess I’d get to hang out with grain but no one honestly cares about District 9. In The Hunger Games AND Catching Fire both of the their tributes are nameless… I don’t know what that says about me but I think I’ll pass!
Futuristic Portland, Maine
Requiem (Delirium #3) – Lauren Oliver
I loved Delirium (and well, I enjoyed the other two books but not as much) but no WAY I’d want to live in a place without love. That’s just… creepy. And wrong.
Wither (The Chemical Garden #1) – Lauren DeStefano
Fever (Chemical Garden #2) – Lauren DeStefano
Sever (The Chemical Gardens #3) – Lauren DeStefano
Don’t let the pretty house fool you. Housemaster Vaughn’s mansion is a CREEPY CREEPY place!!! Also, I wouldn’t even exist in this world since females don’t live older than 20… I’d like to be alive!
Pawn (Blackcoat Rebellion #1) – Aimee Carter
I’d like to think I have a good shot at taking the test and getting a high ranking and therefore getting more luxuries in life… But what if I didn’t? What if my family members didn’t? What if I ended up ELSEWHERE somehow!? No, thanks.
The 5th Wave – Rick Yancey
ALIENS WHO LOOK LIKE HUMANS WHO YOU CAN’T TRUST WHO WILL EITHER TAKE OVER YOUR BODY OR KILL YOU. Need I say more?
Dualed (Dualed #1) – Elsie Chapman
I really, really, really do not want to have to kill my Alt. I think I’d be the one who dies, if we’re just being honest.
Post-Apocalyptic Monument, Colorado
Monument 14 (Monument 14 #1) – Emmy Laybourne
Monument 14: Sky on Fire (Monument 14 #2) – Emmy Laybourne
Chemicals flying around the sky, killing you or maiming you. Rush to the Denver airport to find safety. Chemical tornado. Thaaanks but no thanks.
Enclaves & Topside, New York City
Enclave (Razorland #1) – Ann Aguirre
I’d just rather not live in the sewers to never see the light of day OR topside where I could be eaten by savages.
The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds #1) – Alexandra Bracken
Thurmond sounds god awful and poor, poor Ruby. She had it so bad there. I honestly got the creeps and the shivers and you name it just reading about her time there!
So many places in books I’d never want to be… But hey, I still love reading about them!
