Ten Bookish Worlds That I’d Never Want To Live In

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week’s Top Ten list is all about bookish worlds that we’d really hate to live in! This is a fun one!

As ever, book images go to Goodreads!

The Program (The Program, #1)

The Program Suzanne Young– Suicide being an epidemic is not a nice world at all.

The Selection (The Selection, #1)

The Selection seriesKiera Cass- I just hate every single thing about this world!

Matched (Matched, #1)

Matched- Ally Condie– This one is just a no no for me. I hate the idea of being matched with someone else and having to live with them forever! What if you hate each other?! I couldn’t cope.

Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1)

The Chemical Gardens trilogyLauren DeStefano– This again is a very scary world. People not living past their twenties? People can’t live to see the children they have to pop out for Science!

Not a Drop to Drink (Not a Drop to Drink, #1)

Not A Drop To DrinkMindy McGinnis– This terrifies me. A world where there’s no water? Wah.

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)

PanemThe Hunger GamesSuzanne Collins– No. Just no. The amount of fighting? Worst nightmare.

Unwind (Unwind, #1)

UnwindNeal Shusterman– The idea of harvesting body organs and decisions about that being made my parents… I would NOT want to experience that, thank you very much!

Delirium (Delirium, #1)

DeliriumLauren Oliver– The idea of being inoculated against love really makes me sad.

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

Divergent Veronica Roth– I don’t like the idea of this world either. It scares me!

1984

1984George Orwell– I haven’t read this book (I know, I know. I’m reading it this year!) but I definitely don’t like the sound of it.

Which worlds would you really not like to live in? Feel free to leave a link to your post and I’ll stop by!

Top Ten Classics I Want To Read

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is either Top Ten Favourite Classics or Top Ten Classics I Want To Read. I had to pick the top ten classics I want to read, as I am AWFUL at reading classics. I don’t know what it is about them, I just haven’t read as many as I feel like I should have done.

Some are more modern classics than others, but here is my selection in no particular order:

58696 32261

David CopperfieldCharles Dickens–  I do like reading Charles Dickens, but this one is has escaped me many times.

Tess Of The D’UrbervillesThomas Hardy– My sister really likes this book. I’m intrigued…

31122 10956

I Capture The CastleDodie Smith– I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this book. I need to read it!

The Virgin SuicidesJeffrey Eugenides– This book is another one I’ve heard many things about, but I’m yet to read.

5797 5470

Vanity FairWilliam Makepeace Thackeray– I’m not sure if I’ll ever get around to this book, as the size of it really puts me off. But maybe I can be persuaded to read it?

1984George Orwell– I have been meaning to read this book for such a long time now.

5129 890

Brave New WorldAldous Huxley– Another book that I’ve been meaning to read for ages (there are just too many books 😉 ). I really hope to get to this at some point.

Of Mice and MenJohn Steinbeck– I remember another class at school reading this and wishing it was my class! Hopefully, I can read this book soon.

61846336454

Wuthering HeightsEmily Bronte– I know a lot of people love this book, so I’m slightly intimidated to read it.

A Streetcar Named DesireTennessee Williams – My sister absolutely adores this book. It makes me want to read it!
