Top Ten Tuesday: Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme started at The Broke And The Bookish.

This week's topic is the most vivid worlds/settings in books. I thought this one would be simple but I could only come up with eight. 

Across the Universe and A Million Suns-Revis does an excellent job of making you feel like you are on a ship in space. But that ship feels so real from the fields to the solar sun.
Incarnate-I loved the world that Meadow’s created for Ana. I enjoyed how everything flowed in Heart and how the world made sense to the characters.
The Newsflesh series-Georgia and Shaun live in a futuristic United States. There are plenty of similarities to our current world. I love the pop culture references that make it so much easier to relate to a world where the dead rise.
Ready Player One-Again a book filled with pop culture references is going to make me very happy. But I loved the Oasis and the other planets that exist. Sign me up for the Wheadonverse!
The Wicked Lovely series-Marr created such an enchanting world filled with fairies. I enjoyed every minute with those characters.
The Books of Faerie series-Another series I want to just crawl into and live. Stiefvater does a brilliant job of drawing you into the faery world and making magic real.
Y: The Last Man series (Graphic Novel)-Brian K Vaughan is my favorite graphic novel writer. His post apocalyptic world is amazing. I remember the first time I read Y: The Last Man. I was blown away by the details.
The Strain series-Of course de Toro, a wonderful film maker, is going to be able to make a realistic world where vampires attempt to take over the world. The story just jumps off the page.


  1. I just emailed by library and asked them to get the Mira Grant series ;) *fingers crossed*

  2. I love the originality of these choices - Ready Player One, Melissa Marr's books, and Across the Universe are ones I haven't seen before! Great Top Ten! :D
