Top Ten Tuesday: Worlds I Never Want to Live In

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Worlds I Never Want to Live In

1. U.S. Sometime in the Future
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

This is pretty close to my own personal nightmare.

2. U.S. Sometime in the Future
Partials (Partials Sequence #1) by Dan Wells

If I made it through the war and the plague, that is...

3. Nightside
Something From the Nightside (Nightside #1) by Simon R. Green

I don't think I'm badass enough to survive with all the monsters.

4. Lakeside Courtyard
Written in Red (The Others #1) by Anne Bishop

Monsters again...they'd eat me...

5. Godspeed
Across the Universe (Across the Universe #1) by Beth Revis

I don't want to spend a lifetime stuck on a spaceship.

6. U.S. Sometime in the Future
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) by Suzanne Collins

I'm not surviving those games...

7. U.S. Sometime in the Future
Pure (Pure #1) by Julianna Baggott

I don’t want to be organically fused to an inanimate object for the rest of my life.

8. Middle-earth
The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien

Well, unless I get to be Aragorn's queen, then I'm totally in.

9. Westeros (or any of the other lands)
A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R. R. Martin

I'm still not convinced that anyone will survive all of the books. Plus, women don't do very well here.

10. Tír na nÓg, Faery, Never Never, etc.

I never want to live in a world filled with beautiful or horrendous, sociopathic, immortal, remorseless beings.

What worlds would you never want to live in?


  1. I would definitely not like to live in the world of the Handmaid's Tale - and being Offred would be horrible!I would actually love to live in Middle Earth as long as I was an awesome kick-ass elf like Tauriel :)

    My TTT

    1. I didn't read The Handmaid's Tale until college, and it gave me nightmares! Sometimes when I watch the news, I start drawing parallels between what's going on and what's in the book. It really made me think, and I'd NEVER want to live in that America.

    2. I know! I think it's so terrifying because it feels like it could actually happen. Maybe not in the U.S., but some parts of the world at some times have had a similar system to this.

  2. OMG - How could I have forgotten Godspeed?? That would truly be awful. Good call on that one.

    TTT @ Krista's Dust Jacket

    1. I think it would suck if you can remember anything different (like Amy), but not if it was the only thing you knew. Unless, of course, you ran out of food, water, air, etc. *shudders*

  3. I could live in Middle Earth but count me out for the rest especially Game of Thrones, nobody is safe in that series.

    1. As long as I could live in Rivendell or the Shire, I would be totally on board with living in Middle Earth. I think I may be a Hobbit, truth be hold.

    2. Post-Sauron Middle Earth would be nice, especially in Rivendell. As for Game of Thrones, I'm just hoping my favorite character, Tyrion, makes it through the end because he is also Martin's favorite character...he wouldn't kill his own favorite character would he?

  4. And don't forget the mothers in Pure, Amber! They disturbed me the most. Great list as always, and I found yet another book for my TBR! (I have no idea why I've never heard of Something From the Nightside.)

    1. I've actually only read a few into the series, but I really like it so far. They're probably the easiest and quickest Urban Fantasy books I've picked up. It's kind of a cross between Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman and The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.

  5. What a great list! I totally agree on Westeros.
    Across the Universe surprised me - I would love to live on a spaceship! Interesting.

  6. Westeros and the dystopian world of the Hunger Games were the first 2 I thought of! Definitely don't want to be in either of those worlds!

  7. 1984
    I robot
    The Peculiar

    and this is just the start
