Top Ten Tuesday (9)

July 24, 2012

I am participating in Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Each week, there is a specific topic for a top ten list.

This weeks topic is:
Top Ten Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books

A Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire, #1) / George R.R. Martin
1. - The Seven Kingdoms -
A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

The entire kingdom is just so detailed and incredibly well built. The TV series has definitely helped shape my vision of this world.

Cinder / Marissa Meyer
2. - New Beijing -
Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I absolutely loved the setting in Cinder. The palace and the marketplace, all of it was just beautiful.

Harry Potter / J.K. Rowling
3. - Hogwarts -
The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Need I really explain myself here? This entire universe is so magical and fantastical and just amazing.

The Night Circus
4. - Le Cirque des Rêves -
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus is such an amazing place! I wish I could go. Each tent is described in such a way that it brings the entire circus to life. I felt as if I were right there in the circus.

Uglies / Scott Westerfeld
5. - Uglyville / The Smoke -
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

It was interesting to discover all of the sectors in this town as well as explore the wilderness!

Incarceron / Catherine Fisher
6. - Incarceron -
Incarceron by Catherin Fisher

I don't remember too much about this book as I read it a long time ago, but I can clearly picture the world of Incarceron. My mental visions of this universe have stayed with me very strongly.

The Hunger Games / Suzanne Collins
7. - Panem -
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Both the Districts, the Capitol and the Arena are just magnificent. The movie has provided a new insight into how this world could appear, but my own imagination of this world sticks in my mind.

Divergent / Veronica Roth
8. - Chicago -
Divergent by Veronica Roth

In Divergent, it is the faction headquarters that Tris trains in that is particularly vivid. 

Across the Universe / Beth Revis
9. - Godspeed -
Across the Universe by Beth Revis

The world building on this ship was wonderfully done. Each level explored was pictured clearly in my mind as I read this.

The Host / Stephenie Meyer
10. - The cave (Arizona) -
The Host by Stephenie Meyer

The cave setting in the host was so intricate and developed. I loved it!

Let me know what your favourite worlds/settings are.
