Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Worlds I Would/n’t Want to Live In

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. I think it’s easier to think of ones we don’t want to live in, so I’m doing ones I would like to live in, as well as, the ones I wouldn’t want to live in.

1. “Harry Potter”, J.K. Rowling

2. “The Chronicles of Narnia”, C.S. Lewis

3. “Pride & Prejudice”, Jane Austen

4. “The Hobbit”, J.R.R. Tolkien

5. “Percy Jackson”, Rick Riordan

6. “The Hunger Games”, Suzanne Collins

7. “Game of Thrones”, George R.R. Martin I’m on the fence about this one…part of me would like to live then and part of me wouldn’t. I guess it really depends on where I would be placed ha.

8. “Divergent”, Veronica Roth – Again, same as above. If I was Dauntless, I think I would like it.

9. “The Diary of Anne Frank”, Anne Frank

10. “Big Little Lies”, Liane Moriarty – Everyone is a liar!
