Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, participate! Its way fun ;)
This weeks topic is: Top Ten Most Vivid Worlds/Settings in Books
Usually, I post this early. Today I worked 12 hours and had no time. But it was eating me alive to not have a TTT post done. So here I am, first writing it at 9:15 at night. This is for my devotion to my blog and my readers, and my sanity. Let's get this show on the road! All links go to Goodreads, as per usual.
1- The Hunger Games: Suzanne Collins- Honestly, who didn't picture themselves in the arena at least once while reading Suzanne Collins' epic trilogy?
2- Anna & The French Kiss: Stephanie Perkins- Miss Perkins knows how to paint us a lovely picture of Paris, that's for sure! I went to the movies with Anna, did touristy things with her and St. Clare and had a flat out ball!
3- Shatter Me: Tahereh Mafi- That prison was bleak, dark, and cold! And I felt it all. Tahereh Mafi transported me throughout this entire novel, and it was freakin' awesome.
4- Where She Went: Gayle Forman- The second installment was WAY better in my eyes (second to If I Stay) for many reasons, but Where She Went took me through New York City in such a beautiful way. I had meals with Adam while exploring the city, and felt every emotion he did. It was amazing. Gayle Forman, props to you.
5-1st To Die: James Patterson- James Patterson had to make my list. This was my first novel of his that I ever read, but let me tell you I was on a murder investigation with Lindsay Boxer and her crew. I was in that police station and kicking ass morning til' night. He is SO good at painting the picture for the reader. Ugh, James & I are always gonna be tight! ;)
I'm not going to push it. I don't want to add to the list just to get to ten. These are the ones I feel VERY strongly about. I was sucked into their world and couldn't get out. This isn't something that happens with every book! But when it does, damn I just love it! So you are aware, before I am asked, Harry Potter is not on my list solely because I have not read it. I thought you should all know.
Anyway, til the next time, see ya ! Oh, and since I'm wired from being overtired from a 12 hour work day, tweet me, comment me, whatever, I'll be answering til the wee hours of the mornin'!
