Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you love books and making lists, this is the meme for you! This week’s topic is:
Top Ten Books With X Setting
This week’s topic is one we can personalise – we could go with books set near the beach, books set in boarding school, books set in England, etc. I am a big fan of fantasy books and fairy tales, so I have decided to share my top ten books set in a fantasy world (ordered alphabetically):
~ 1 ~
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L Frank Baum
Set in the merry old land of Oz, where we travel the yellow brick road to the shining Emerald City.
~ 2 ~
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Set in Wonderland – a surreal, dream like place reached through a rabbit hole.
~ 3 ~
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Set in the brutal, dystopian state of Panem where people are separated into strict districts.
~ 4 ~
The Dark Tower by Stephen King
Set across All-World – a collection of parallel worlds which have started to bleed into each other as the old magic dies.
