Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome people at The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s topic is Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books:
1. Skuldendore from Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
The world makes or breaks a high fantasy for me. It has to be vivid. I must be able to picture it. That’s definitely the case with Skuldendore!
2. Mercy Falls from the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater
Mercy Falls was always so vivid for me. It’s like you could even feel how cold it was. I love Maggie!
3. Forks, WA from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I could just see the greenness of Forks and La Push. How about you?
4. The Seven Kingdoms from Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue
The Dells in Fire were especially vivid for me!
5. Brittany in Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
I had never read anything about Brittany or France at that time before this book. It was just amazed at the setting and history.
6. Scotland and America in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
You’re probably thinking ‘America, duh!’ well this is America in the 1800’s…if I remember correctly and it’s just amazing to see. Not to mention that they live in the mountains of North Carolina which is basically my back yard. Then there was Scotland in the beginning of the series. Wow. These books turned Scotland into my number 1 travel destination.
7. Hogwarts in the Harry Potter series
No list is complete without HP and this one is so true. Hogwarts and every other important setting in the books just comes to life. After 7 books you feel like you’ve lived there.
8. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The circus was just plain incredible.
9. Swampsea in Chime by Franny Billingsley
A gorgeous, dark, and magical world. It might be one of my favorites ever.
10. The island in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
The world is really what made me love this book so much. The pictures make it even more vivid.
