Good afternoon, peeps! Today I won’t provoke almost you all with the delightful summer temperatures I’m experiencing during my vacation #sorrynotsorryforthebrag, haha!
This Tuesday, I felt like analyzing some of the books’ sceneries I’ve been seeing. I’m an eternal rebel, so my theme for the day is Most Vivid Book Worlds/Settings!
As you may know, this meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish =D
In no particular order, let’s talk about setting and bookish worlds that are just too liveable! #that’snotaword
*pictures will take you to the Goodreads page of the book!*
1) A Song of Ice and Fire series, by George R. R. Martin
The guy writes too much? Yes. His books could be at least 200 pages shorter each? Yes. Are there times in which you just want to cut your wrists because it isn’t going anywhere? Yes. But we can’t take this away from him: SUCH A PERFECT SCENERY! Every time I close my eyes and think Game of Thrones, I can see all parts of his world. #king #justsaying
2) 27 Days to Midnight, by Kristine Kruppa
Think about a perfect steampunk world. You still aren’t even close to what Kristine pulled up with this book. Seriously, think perfection. You are not there yet ❤
3) How Smoke Got Out of The Chimneys, by DeAnna Knippling
I’m still amazed at what DeAnna was able to create with so few pages! As I read this short story, I felt like there was a movie playing in my mind with all the scenes and sceneries. Historically impeccable and most entertaining, How Smoke Got Out of the Chimneys is a must read for any fan of perfect world building!
4) The Quartermaster & The Marquis Son, by A. E. Kendall
Another historical romance that went so beyond the romance! Kendall was incredible at her settings (among other aspects of the book, as it was a 5 stars read for me, haha!). The ships, the changes of the sea, the islands, the harbors… SERIOUSLY, ANYTHING AT ALL. I felt like I was living with the characters, haha!
5) Deltora Quest series, by Emily Rodda
Emily drew a whole world in this series. Literally. For me, Deltora is like another planet, floating around the galaxy and just waiting for my arrival – that is how much great the setting is.
6) Tales from the Kingdoms, by Sarah Pinborough
I finally feel like my fairy tales actually happened all at the same world, you know? The way in which Sarah sews her stories and the fairy tales kingdoms together is simply outstanding. One of my favorite series EVAH for the world setting as well!
7) Hexworld series, by Jordan L. Hawk
I’ve read two out of four books into this series so far and let me tell you something: YOU ARE GOING TO THINK NEW YORK IS JUST LIKE THIS. ALL THE TIME. No matter how many years and centuries went by and never mind the urban fantasy. Jordan is that good. And I didn’t even include the Whyborne & Griffin series here, haha! (Because, you know, the settings there are also that perfect. Jordan is that perfect.)
8) Princess of Tyrone, by Katie Hamstead
Okay, so maybe I loved everything about this book, but I have to point out that the way in which Katie mixed fairy-tales retellings with sci-fi was just brilliant. I kept imagining some planets full of glitter around them and a pastels toned space, oops!
9) Black Water Tales: The Unwanted, by JeanNicole Rivers
Soo. This book creeped me out in more ways than I care to count, but the major thing was the world building. SO. FREAKING. REAL. It gave me the chills. If my hands would be so kind to obey my brain and reproduce exactly what it sees, I could make a perfect painting of all described places. Seriously. Unfortunately, pandas can’t draw and I’m no exception.
10) The Lord of The Rings series, by J. R. R. Tolkien
OF COURSE I couldn’t leave this one out, right? Right! Hahaha! My childhood dream was to live in the Middle Earth and, if I had the chance to do so, I still would move there. #justsaying
Harry Potter series, by J. K. Rowling
Do I need to say something?
And that was my Top 10 Tuesday for the day! Do you participate on this meme? If so, what was your theme? Feel free to leave the link bellow for me to check ❤
