Top Ten Tuesday: Worlds I'd Never Want To Live In


Happy Tuesday and welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's theme is Rewind, so we can choose a past topic that we have missed.  I have selected Worlds I'd Never Want To Live In.


The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - Seriously, who in their right mind would volunteer to live anywhere in Panem?


Battle Royale by Koushun Takami - I wouldn't want to be a part of the selected classes at all!


The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey - I mean, what are the odds that you would even make it to that stage of the invasion?



The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood - NEVER!


Divergent by Veronica Roth - Potentially danger filled if you are either Divergent or Dauntless, so no thanks.


The Road by Cormac McCarthy - Again, who in their right mind?


Holes by Louis Sachar - I don't think I could cut it digging holes 5 feet in diameter and 5 feet deep every day at Camp Greenlake.


The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkland - As much as I would like to think that I'd be a survivor in Rick's company, I sure wouldn't want to be when it came right down to it.


The Giver by Lois Lowry - I would question far too much to be safe.



Patient Zero/ Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry - Again, I wouldn't want to see a zombie outbreak turn into a full-scale zombie apocalypse.


What did you think of my list this week?  What world would you never want to live in?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog, and maybe even commenting!

  1. Panem- no doubt! That would be top of my list too. And the Walking Dead world would seriously suck!

    I would add Westeros too just because everyone dies in that world lol.

  2. I definitely wouldn't want to live in Panem... some of these worlds are so scary!

  3. Yep, I think you've covered them all! I might add the town where Judy Blume grew up near (I think) - it's the subject of her last book, In the Unlikely Event.

  5. I would NEVER want to live in any of these worlds! There are only two things you can do in them...Be scared 24 hours a day, or just drop dead. Great Top Ten! My Top Ten Tuesday!

  6. Omg omg omg I wouldn't want to live in Battle Royale >_< the horror... and I agree with TWD, it's just too much anxiety haha. Great choices wow!

  7. These all sound completely right - WHO WOULD WANT TO LIVE IN ANY OF THESE WORLDS?!...
    saying that, I'd love to be in The Walking Dead (if I survived, that is!) just to meet Rick and co.

  8. I honestly don't think I could survive in most book worlds, I mean even Middle Earth would terrify me.

    1. You're probably right about that... Thanks for visiting, Skye!

  9. Ditto to all of these. If I could choose a world to live in, it would probably be the Inkworld from Inkheart. Could still be dangerous, but it would be beautiful--and way better than any of these!

    1. I've heard about it and it sounds fascinating - I'll have to read that series! :)

  10. I like that you included Holes (a contemporary) with all these SFF. I would never survive a single day at that camp.

    1. Yeah, Holes really stuck with me when I read it for the first time... :)

      Thanks for sharing!

  11. I agree with you completely. I wouldn't want to even visit those worlds let alone live in them.

  12. Haha, I saw the title of your TTT and thought: "Every single dystopia EVER."

    Along with many of these places, I'd add in the world in Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series, as well as Brandon Sanderson's Newcago in his Steelheart trilogy. Because holy hell, those worlds are messed up, too.

    Great list!

    1. Yep, pretty much!

      Oh, I didn't even think of Uglies, but that would be a great one to add!

  13. I would never want to live in Panem either!

  14. None of those worlds sound very fun to my either! I have not read most of those books - in fact, the only one I think I have read is Holes. Interesting list, for sure!!

  15. Agree. Panem is just a bad place to live. Argh, I wonder how can a person create a place like that. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Can we just find a world that consists of just books and libraries and move there?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Living in 'The Road" would be sooo depressing!! The Handmaid's Tale? Ugh, nope, I'm outta here xD I loved the book, but nooo way!
    The Walking Dead... Man.. I have such a huge crush on Daryl, but still... nope :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. Haha great list. I am sensing that you are not a fan of danger? LOL :)

    1. Reading about it's one thing, but actually living it - no thanks!

  19. I wouldn't want to live in those worlds too especially Walking Dead and Holes.Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've read a lot of these and I agree! They would be horrible worlds to love in.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ugh, YUP I agree with this list.!πŸ˜‚ Hide me from all the dystopian worlds!! And as much as I love reading about zombies, I'm pretty sure one would eat me within, like, 5 seconds of the apocalypse. πŸ˜‚

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great topic and I fully agree with all of them! As much as I like the Battle Royale book, OMG can you imagine living in that world?? No, thank you

    ReplyDelete
  23. Such a great list! I would just add the world of the Martian, aka Mars, because in those conditions, surviving is just impressive! ^-^

  24. Any world before modern plumbing. ;-)

  25. Agree with the worlds of The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Giver. I wouldn't want to live in those worlds, either!

    1. It's just asking for trouble, or death, isn't it!

      Delete
  26. Definitely never THT or TR! The one that sprang to mind for me was Westeros, because, like, rampant misogyny and possible death at every turn ... but then again, Jaime's there, so I think I'd take my chances!
