Top Ten Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's post is Top Ten Most Vivid Worlds/Settings In Books.

Ooh, this one sounds like such a fun top ten to do.  I absolutely love fantasy worlds that are completely different from our own.  I'll try to stay away from urban fantasy books, you know, the kind that are set in our world except there are vampires and werewolves here.  However, I believe dystopians and possibly historical fiction worlds are completely fair game.

Amendment after I picked my top ten:  Considering most of the books I read are set in the 'real world' with some slight fantasy/paranormal modification, I may have made a liar out of myself with the above statement.  But oh well...  I still agree with my list.

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
Croak by Gina Damico

Dark Swan Series by Richelle Mead (the fae side of things)
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly (the historical part)
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

What books did you guys pick for most vivid worlds?  In other words, which books did I miss?


  1. Excellent list - I've only read Across the Universe and The Night Circus - and both worlds are fascinating.

  2. Ravka in Shadow and Bone is awesome!
