Happy August, fellow readers! I had some cookies for breakfast, so I’m a little more excited than usual for today’s Top 5 Tuesday! (But, honestly, are cookies really any less healthy than, say, cinnamon rolls or pancakes?)
This is a great feature hosted by the amazing Bionic Bookworm! Shanah runs a great blog; if you haven’t checked out her blog yet, go do it now!
This week’s Top 5 Topic is “Book Worlds I Want to Live In!” So, without any further ado, let’s get started!
If I could live in Imre, I would be the happiest person ever! Being in a city that’s so full of art and music would be awesome; I’d probably spend every night at the Eolian. And being so close to the University would (hopefully) mean I could take classes. I’d like to think I’m a pretty smart cookie (not Kvothe smart, but still…) and I would LOVE to study Naming and study at the Medica. All in all, I think I could have a lot of fun!
I’ve been a fan of Middle-Earth since I was first introduced to The Hobbit in fourth grade. I would love to be able to jump right into the pages and live in world of Elves, Dwarves, and Men. I honestly don’t think I would even mind if it was pre-destroyed-Ring or post-destroyed-Ring; I’d be thrilled to exist in the world even if it was still a little messed up.
#3- Graceling Realm
This world has people with super specialized skills called Graces (marked by two different colored eyes), and I just think it would be super awesome! Even if I had kind of a boring Grace, like I was an amazing gardener or something, I would have so much fun! And, for the most part, there’s very little chance of anything awful happening to me if I were a normal, everyday person, which only adds to the allure.
I know that Prythian can sometimes be a wee bit dangerous, but I think it would definitely be worth it! The settings Maas describes are breath-taking, and I would love to visit each of the courts. Obviously I love Rhysand and Gang™, and would probably spend a lot of time at the Night Court to hang out with them, but I’m gonna be honest- I think Dawn or Summer would be my favorite court.
If you’ve been following me for a while, this probably doesn’t come as a surprise! I grew up on The Chronicles of Narnia, and for me, it’s one of those series that feels a little like home already! It’s got all the awesome fantasy elements I would want; adventure, magic, talking animals, and so much more. But it doesn’t have those dark elements that would make me afraid for my life if I lived there. Basically, I love everything about Narnia, and that’s why it’s my top choice for live-in fictional worlds!
That’s it for this week’s feature! Thanks for reading, and make sure you check out Shanah’s Top 5 Tuesday Post. Let me know if you’d like to live in any fictional worlds in the comments below!
