Top Five Tuesday: Book Worlds I Want to Live In (Please & Thnx!)

Top Five Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm.

This week I’m choosing five books worlds that I want to live in. At first, I thought this would be really easy—I love books, of course living within their pages is a dream come true. But then I took stock of the kinds of books I read.

Dystopian end-of-worlds (Think The 5th Wave, Hunger Games) and sci-fi re-imaginings (Feed, All Rights Reserved). Heart-racing murder mysteries (Dangerous Girls, The Deep End of Fear). And so. Many. Assassin rich lands with danger and high stakes (Six of Crows, Grave Mercy.) I don’t think I could survive a quarter of life in those pages, but … it would be an adventure?

Let’s just say that for my follow picks, I have activated the “I cannot die” clause, so no matter what crazy events transpire, I am an immortal/invulnerable being ready to take on all. 💪💪


[1]
Into the Land of the Unicorns, Bruce Coville

Into the Land of the Unicorns (Unicorn Chronicles, #1)

Click cover for Goodreads info.

This book has a lush fantasy setting, with unicorns, dragons, and creatures unique to Coville’s world, all with fascinating backstories and vivid descriptions. ItLotU is the first fantasy book I fell deeply in love with. The Dimblethum, a bearlike creature incapable of speech cares for our heroine; Squijum, a monkey/squirrel mix provides comic relief; Delvers, goblin-like creatures dwell under the ground and swear to destroy the unicorns. I always wanted Squijum to be my pet bestie.

The Red Pyramid, Rick Riordan

The Red Pyramid (The Kane Chronicles, #1)

Click cover for Goodreads info.

The descriptions of the Underworld were so, so immersive and I loved the different ways magic was used in the series. As much as I love the Greek Gods, I would prefer living in this Riordan world, having grown up with a lot of interest in Egyptian culture.

Shade, Jeri Smith-Ready

Shade (Shade, #1)

Click cover for Goodreads info.

In this world, everyone born after the Shift is able to communicate with ghosts. I fluctuate between “yes, ghosts at totally real!” and “maybe? I don’t know” but a world where humans can communicate with the other sign on the regular is so fascinating. I would fully sign up to help ghosts transition to the other side!

The Wizzle War, Gordon Korman

The Wizzle War (Macdonald Hall #4)

Click cover for Goodreads info.

I never went to boarding school but now can I just be in high school again just to go to this EXACT boarding school, please? When MacDonald Hall hires a tech-obsessed guru to oversee student behaviour, and sister school Miss Scrimmage’s hires an ex-Marine, the students band together to free themselves using any pranks necessary. Whenever I read MacDonald Hall books, I totally picture myself as Cathy (Miss Scrimmage student), heading up the pranks (even though I was the most TAME student.)

Hoot, Carl Hiaasen

I’m huuuuge on the environment and animal protection, so living in a book world where there are dozens of endangered species for me to learn about and help protect would be *the dream*.


What book world do you want to live in? Would you vacation in any of my book worlds? Let’s discuss!

  1. I haven’t read Bruce Coville for SO LONG!! That’s for the reminder. It makes me want to dig through my boxes of books and find my copies…. My man will be SO pleased. 😂 The Wizzle War has such a great cover!

    1. Hahahahaha it was probably marked as spam for all those NARNIAs XD XD XD Watch me find it in the spam folder. NArnia would be nice, if I wasn’t secretly terrified of how stunningly powerful that world is. I do not feel fit to live there. I am not WORTHY.
