Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Worlds I'd Never Want to Live In & Past, Present, Future

via
My blog is pulling double duty today as I am participating in two linkups - Top Ten Tuesday and Tell Me Tuesday.



BOOKISH WORLDS I'D NEVER WANT TO LIVE IN


In any of the alternate realities in the Destroyer trilogy



This is a hard one to describe without revealing too much.  In the beginning of the first book, the setting is in a North America that never experienced the American Revolution.  Over the course of the three books, the settings change quite drastically. 


Panem in The Hunger Games trilogy 


Chances are that you've either read the books or you seen the movies. You know what I'm talking about.


Futuristic Chicago in the Divergent series


Same thing as The Hunger Games.  Would you really want to live in that dystopian society?


The bleak reality that people escape from in Ready Player One


Imagine a reality so dismal and bleak that most of civilization escapes into the virtual reality of the OASIS to do...  everything.


The unfortunate, real life world of human trafficking as depicted in Sold


As a woman, I realized after reading this book, how fortunate I have been on so many levels that I never truly considered before.


The dystopian, futuristic world of Fahrenheit 451


I honestly cannot imagine a world where war has been declared on books.

Yes, I know...  there are only 6.  That's the most I could come up with.  Do you have any suggestions?  Feel free to share!


Linking up with:
    Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. 




    Last book I read: 
    The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah


    Book I'm currently reading: 
    Eat, Pray, Love Made Me Do It by Elizabeth Gilbert


    On deck: 
    All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda

    1. The Ready Player One universe was too depressing to even contemplate.
      Interested to hear your thoughts on All The Missing Girls.

    2. Your top 4 would really be terrible places to live and try to survive

      1. I think of the six I listed, that the world of Sold would be the worst because it's an unfortunate reality for thousands of girls and women worldwide.

    3. I would not like to live in Panem either!

      1. Had the reaping not existed and the government left us alone and not been so oppressive, I could live in district 12 with the mountains and nature.

    4. I agree about RPO. While the tech is interesting, no thank you on actually living in that reality. It's very similar to Warcross, so if you haven't read that one, definitely worth a go. I hope you enjoy Eat Pray Love, I sure did :)

      1. I'm not familiar with Warcross, I'll have to give it a look. I read Eat, Pray, Love several years ago and loved it. So far, this companion book is good (it's stories of people who were inspired by EPL).

    5. I had never seen the Destroyer books before. I will have to look at them because I need a book that rewrites history for my Better World Books reading challenge! I will look at Sold, too, I haven't read anything that was primarily about human trafficking. 📚

      Thanks for TMTing! I'll get you linked and shared. I'll make sure I'm following you on Twitter, so when you feel like participating you can let me know ahead of time, so I can get you linked and shared earlier. 👍

      1. Sold is a very quick read and is told in short little chapters. But, it packs a lot of punch into it despite it's size.

        Sounds good! Thanks.

      1. The destroyer books were interesting. The third one was my least favorite, though. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on them if you do read them one day.
