Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Worlds I’d Never Want To Live In
Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis: MAN, this one is the scariest to me because it could for real happen. A world where water is scarce? YEAH the kinds of devolving of humanity that you would think would happen HAPPENS. I just would not want to live in this world at all. Not cut out for it. This book was amazing, by the way so you should check it out!
Delirium by Lauren Oliver: I don’t want to live in a world without love! I don’t want anyone messing with the wiring of my brain to make me not FEEL what love is. GTFO!
Eve by Anna Carey: I would never want to live in this post-apocalyptic world! This plague happens and it wipes out SO many people and obviously life is not so great for those left behind. I don’t want to give away what the main character finds out about what is really going on in her all girl school and what happens to the boys but yeah…NO THANK YOU. I would jump off a bridge the first moment I was free.
Pawn by Aimee Carter: I don’t want to live in any sort of world ruled by THESE people. It’s terrible and I would hate how you get placed in your life by what you score on a test. Plus the THINGS you find out as you read…I just would never want to be part of this world structured like this.
Wither by Lauren DeStefano: God, reading this book I remember how bleak everything felt. Because of scientific efforts to create a perfect race, things are screwy and now people only live until they are in their twenties. And the ladies are forced to keep popping out babies so that the scientists can figure out how to change this. And how you die is TERRIBLE. I just could never live in this world without wanting to off myself. WHY LIVE? You don’t even get to really see your baby grow up because you will be DEAD DEAD DEAD.
In The After by Demitria Lunetta: I could NEVER survive in this world. That’s all I kept thinking while I was reading this book. I can’t imagine having to do what she does to get food and I don’t know where my reason to live would be anymore. And the zombie things sounded CREEPY.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey: This is like my worst nightmare. Not only is there an alien invasion and you need survival skills and such BUT you can’t even trust anybody because you have to be so super paranoid because aliens can look like people. I would be certifiably crazy if I ever could survive more than one day.
The Program by Suzanne Young: OH THIS WORLD. It’s so much LIKE our world except suicide is an epidemic (seriously, I could not handle losing so many people I love) and pretty much if you even show any sort of FEELS you get sent to the program. STAY OUT OF MY HEAD AND MY FEELS. I would never, ever want to experience this. I loved this book hardcore last year!
Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi: Okay, part of this world would be wicked awesome to experience but would get old. I mean, it’s all sorts of virtual reality so you could watch your favorite band play or hang out with the dinosaurs but I feel like nothing would feel REAL after a while. And then there’s the life Perry is used to and I would not want to live that life either out there with the Aether storms threatening and all the other dangers.
The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna: This one doesn’t seem as in your face obvious as the others but I just would not want to be part of a world where, when someone dies, an echo takes their place. It just kind of freaks me out.
So tell me…what worlds would YOU never want to live in? I want to know because I love books with worlds that terrify me. Do you agree with any of mine?
