Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. However, we decided to take a page from Just Us Book Blog and split the Top Ten Tuesday posts between the two of us. We’ll each post our top five book choices (in no particular order) based on certain themes. If you would also like to participate, find out the rules by clicking here.
Top 5 worlds I would love to live in:
1. Harry Potter by J.K Rowling ==> I mean you cannot not have this on your list! it’s my dream to live in a wizarding world! If I go to heaven, I’m asking God to create a Harry Potter world for me lol.
2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin ==> I would love to go back in time and live in the early 19th century. I mean the outfits, the setting, and the love story are totally worth it!
3. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien ==> This world is so beautiful! look at the Shire! The middle earth is a magical place. It’s always green and the town is breathtaking. I wouldn’t mind waking up everyday to this view!
4. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll ==> Fantasy lands! yes please. I mean if it’s magical, I’m in. Our world is so boring compared to these but isn’t awesome that our minds is capable of building these worlds?
5. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis ==> Another magical place filled with adrenaline rush. Of course I would say YES!
Top 5 worlds I would hate to live in:
6. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins ==> Obviously nobody would want to live in the districts, but I honestly also wouldn’t want to live in Panem. The citizens in the capitol represent mob mentality at its worst. So it seems the options here are to maim other children for survival or to sit and watch it happen.
7. The Maze Runner by James Dashner ==> While I love me some dystopian, I know there’s no way in hell I’d ever survive. I would have died of a heart attack just seeing a Griever for the first time.
8. One Thousand and One Nights ==> For those of you unfamiliar, this is an anthology of short stories within a larger frame story. In that frame story, a king is cheated on, becomes very distrustful women, and instead of doing the more logical thing of swearing off women, he decides to marry a new woman every day, pop her cherry, then kill her the next day. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. 🙄 (This is actually an interesting story because one woman finds a loop hole to save herself, but of course, I can’t give that one away.)
9.Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin ==> I feel like this one doesn’t need an explanation. Unless I’m Khaleesi and get to pet the dragons, I think my chances of being resurrected like a certain character are very slim.
10. The 100 by Kass Morgan ==> This is kind of cheating because I’ve only watched the CW show, although this book series is definitely on my tbr list. For those of you who have also watched the show, these characters just can’t catch a break, can they?
