Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. If you love books and making lists, this is the meme for you! This week’s topic is:
Bookish Worlds I’d Want to/Never Want to Live In
With my love of the fantasy genre I just had to share with you five fantasy bookish worlds I would love to live in and five I would not like to live in!
I’d want to live in:
- The Wizarding World – I would have absolutely loved to have got my Hogwarts letter, so I could have joined Harry and his friends in J K Rowling’s magical world.
- Narnia – Likewise, as a child, I kept crawling to the back of wardrobes hoping to find my way into C S Lewis’ land of magic and talking animals, but sadly to no avail.
- Neverland – Who wouldn’t like to fly away with Peter Pan for adventures with Tinker Bell, the lost boys, pirates, mermaids, Indians and a ticking crocodile on a stunning island?!
- Middle-Earth – When reading Tolkien’s The Hobbit I want nothing more than to join the merry half-elves of Rivendell, as they sing and dance, and swim in the streams and pools of their secret valley.
- Discworld – It might be a bit of a crazy ride in Terry Pratchett’s magic, weird and fantastical world but it would never be dull!
I’d never want to live In:
- Panem – The brutal world of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games, where a totalitarian government forces children to fight each other to death for entertainment, sounds like no place for me.
- Westeros – There are some truly awe-inspiring places in George R R Martin’s epic creation, but I just don’t think I’d survive five seconds in this cut-throat world of politics, intrigue, war and murder!
- All-World – As much I loved travelling with Roland and his Ka-tet through Stephen King’s warped and dangerously fractious world, as above, I don’t think I could survive it!
- Middle-Earth – While I love Rivendell in The Hobbit later in The Lord of the Rings this beautiful place is threatened by an immortal dark lord, a traitorous wizard and their armies of merciless orcs.
- Wonderland – Finally, I think Lewis Carroll’s twisted, surreal world, which Alice finds through the rabbit hole, would send me as crazy as the Mad Hatter himself!
What do you think of my choices? What bookish worlds would you want to/never want to live In? Also, please leave a link in the comments below if you have taken part in this week’s TTT topic too.
