Top Ten Tuesday (15)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by  The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a different topic for the Top Ten. This week is:

Top Ten Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books

So it's been what seems like forever since I have done a Top Ten post, and this is going to be slackerific lol!! It's about 8pm on Monday night and I decided I want to do one for tomorrow, but am having a total brain fart, so we will see what I come up with. These aren't in any order, I'm just putting them as I think of them.

  1. The Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling - I mean seriously I don't think that the movies could have translated the books any better. That is pretty much how I imagined it all while reading the books.
  2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor - I was so in love with the setting of that book. I could see it so clearly in my head. 
  3. Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin - The descriptiveness of everything was so wonderful. It was easy to see the things and places that she described. 
  4. Exiled and Shift (The Protectors series) by M.R. Merrick - I think what helped me to get so lost in these books besides the amazing plot and characters, was feeling like I was right there with them. I could so easily imagine everything. 
  5. Inhale and Exhale(Just Breathe trilogy) by Kendall Grey - Going from the real world into the Dreaming was so enjoyable. Not only because of the smexy, but the great detail and vividness of the Dream world. 
  6. The Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent - Rachel is not only amazing with making us love and hate her characters and become wrapped up in their world, she is incredible at making me actually almost fear the Netherworld and all the crazy creatures that it holds. 
  7. The Mortal Instruments series and The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare - In both series, no matter where they are or what they are doing, I feel like I can see the settings around them. I can see everything so clearly in my head it's just amazing. 
  8. The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins - I could clearly see every aspect of this story in my head from the districts, to the train, The Capitol, The Arena's, and so on. It was written so fantastically that I had no problem at all envisioning any of it.
  9. Pure by Julianna Baggott - It was so creepy and disturbing, but so descriptive and great!! I could really imagine everything in ruins and the mutated humans and creatures. 
  10. Legend by Marie Lu- Everything about this book was fabulous, but I really loved the settings and thought it was very realistic.
I know that there are tons more and when I see other peoples posts I will be ike "Why didn't I think of that?" Lol! Anyways, I really wanted to do the Top Ten this week, but also really want to veg out and read so I put it together all quick like.  Leave me a link and I will check out your Tuesday Post.

  2. Can you even imagine Gavin and Sinnder in the flesh?!? My heart would explode!

    DoS&B is an excellent choice, too. I would love to see it as a movie.
