Top Ten Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books
Kind of a hard topic for someone who read mostly all contemporary (all you paranormal/dystopian readers have it pretty easy this week, no fair). Anyway I'll do my best (though it may be boring).
1. Harry Potter By: J.K. Rowling- Of course!!!! I Love Hogwarts!! Actually all the settings in this series are really great. Even before the movies came out I had it all imagined out in my head.
2. Elsewhere By: Gabrielle Zevin- The peaceful town you live in after you die :)
3. Anna and the French Kiss By: Stephanie Perkins- The setting totally made the book.... so romantic!! I loved the way Paris was described in an informative way but not a I have to skim because this is boring kind of way.... Perfection!
4. Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children By: Ransom Riggs- Not my favorite book, but the setting was cool. The island and the orphanage was a creepy setting... and the photos helped too!
5. The Secret Year By: Jennifer R. Hubbard- I thought the town this book was set in was pretty vivid... Black Mountain, The Flats, the river and bridge.
6. Hatchet By: Gary Paulsen- The Canadian Wilderness Brian has to survive in was great! I felt like I was there in the cave too!
7. Lord of the Flies By: William Golding -Set on a tropical island post plane accident. The setting is the book.
8. A Child Called It By: Dave Pelzer- This book had a vivid setting to me in that I felt like I was in that basement at times too. It was a vivid emotional setting.
9. Bridge to Terabithia By: Katherine Paterson- Sad book, but cool imaginary land!!
Pretty sad that that's all I got.... maybe I should expand my horizons and start reading some fantasy stuff. I'll have to look at all the lists this week to get ideas :)
So that's mine... what's yours??
