Top Ten Worlds I'd Never Want To Live In
This is actually a bit challenging to me. There are a couple of ways to look at this. So many books take place in current time, but the characters are dealing with the paranormal, such as the Alice in Zombieland books. I would never want to live knowing zombies are real, but the world is the same as the one I'm living in. So I chose to go with more dystopian/apocalyptic worlds, with one glaring exception.
Divergent (Divergent #1) by Veronica Roth
I would never want to be forced into being any one thing. I would like to think that I was divergent, but who knows.
Emma by Jane Austen
Yes I know this world actually existed, and Jane Austen was great about showing a slice of life as it really was. And you know what? I am SO glad times have changed. If I was transported to this time, I would be miserable, and at my age, probably dead. I picked Emma, but really you can sub in any Jane Austen book you want.
Wither (The Chemical Garden #1) by Lauren DeStefano
Yikes, I don't know why anyone would want to live in a world where people die so young.
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1) by Suzanne Collins
I can't think of a single thing that would make me want to live in this world. Risk being put up for slaughter for years? Starving? No thanks.
Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi
The world that this covers doesn't seem that bad. We actually don't know much about the world. Even so, it still seems pretty awful.
The Selection (The Selection #1) by Kiera Cass
The world that is set up in The Selection would pretty much be horrible. That being said, I'm not sure which caste I would have been born into. I guess that makes all the difference.
Delirium (Delirium #1) by Lauren Oliver
A world without love would be pretty bad indeed.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth #1) by Carrie Ryan
I will say it 1000 times. I would not, nor do I want to, survive a zombie apocalypse. Living like the characters do in this series, would make me insane. I pick death, or zombiedom.
Matched (Matched #1) by Ally Condie
This is another pretty horrible world. Everything is so regimented and so controlled. What a nightmare.
The Pledge (The Pledge #1) by Kimberly Derting
Yep, this world is pretty bad too. Risk execution for speaking another language. Plus a caste system. Nothing good is going on in this world.
