Top Ten Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the BookishEach week, we get a theme to list our top tens. 

This week's Top Ten pick : Top Ten Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books.

Here is my list:

1) Harry Potter Novels: I know everyone is going to write about magical world of Hogwarts
2) Alice In Wonderland: Can anything beat its settings?
3) The Road by Cormac McCarthy: Dystopian novel with strong message
4) Haruki Murakami Novels: He writes about a world which is unknown, uncertain and mystic.
5) A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson: It is that kinda of book in which you wish to walk along with him...
6) Regency Era: Anything based in this period is totally readable.

That's about it......

I like seeing Murakami's books on this list. They take place in our world, but not in the world we all know.

Great list! You reminded me that I really need to get around to Murakami's books one of these days lol

Here is my TTT for this week

I didn't even think about Alice in Wonderland, but that is a perfect setting for this list!

Also, I've heard a ton of Murakami's books but never read them. I need to see what they're all about. :)

LOVE The Road by Cormac McCarthy and that setting. Dark and desolate, but perfect.

I definitely agree with the Harry Potter books and would add Anne McCaffrey's books if I made a list (especially her Pern books).

How did I forget about Alice in Wonderland? Lol!! Great list!!

Aleksandra said...

Still haven't read anything from Murakami, although I know I should :) and yeah, HP is a must on a list like this one :)

Alice in Wonderland. Of course. An absolutely captivating world, I think.

I've always been a bit hesitant to read The Road, but I continue to hear great things about it, and it's been popular on the this week's TTT:)

Emily said...

Chloe B said...

Completely agree with HP! Thanks for stopping by my TTT :)

Glad to see Harry Potter on your list too! I totally agree - few things beat the amazingness of the wizarding world, Hogwarts castle included.

I totally agree about Wonderland and regency England, but I haven't heard of these other novels. I'm always on the lookout for awesomely constructed dystopian or fantasy/supernatural novels, so I'm definitely checking these out (especially The Road). Great list!
