Finally, I get to my blog. I've been running around all day like a crazy person. Changing my nephew's dirty diapers and going to the dentist's for a tooth filling. Then I have to buy an outfit for a job interview. Blah, nervous. But now, book blog time!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish, and this week's topic is:
Top Ten Most Vivid Book Worlds/ Settings
Obviously, there's going to be a lot of Harry Potters and Lord of the Rings shout outs on posts todays.
6. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - The moorlands of Bronte's classic are described again and again. The setting is haunting, and the mood of the book often matches the weather.
7. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare- You can tell Clare did her research for this series. The series is set in Victorian London, and I just love the time period and how Clare makes the streets of London come alive.
10. Leviathan (Leviathan, #1) by Scott Westerfield - I've only read the first book of this series as well, but I will continue! This book is so original and creative. It was my first experience with steampunk, and I was not disappointed. I loved the setting. Tensions are building as World War I approaches, but I hardly recognized the Allies and the Axis powers in this book. I hardly even recognized Europe with these Darwin ships that are alive. It was such an exciting read and such an exciting world so unlike our own.
I recommend all of these series. Get lost in another world!
