Top Ten Tuesday

As much as I love YA, it also has some crap worlds. It wasn’t that hard for me to think of this list, because at some point while reading each of these books/series I have though, “I’d hate to live there”.

Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver  Shadow and Bone  Divergent  The Mazerunner  The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
1. The United States in The Delirium Trilogy
*You have to get a surgery so you can’t love? Terrible!
2. Ravka in The Grisha Trilogy
*Well it’s war-torn, and three words… The Shadow Fold. Not interested 😛
3. Chicago in The Divergent Trilogy
*The world is so stringent, you are watched… I just hate it. Plus it’s depressing. 
4. The Maze/The Scorch/USA in The Maze Runner Trilogy
*This might be the most terrifying all the worlds! There wasn’t ANYTHING good to think of here. Out of all of them, I’d hate to live here the most.
5. Panem in The Hunter Games Trilogy
*The districts, the poverty, President Snow, THE HUNGER GAMES. Ugh. Terrible. 

 Crewel by Gennifer Albin  undertheneversky  Partials by Dan Wells  Pawn  Taken
6. Arras in The Crewel World Trilogy
*Well there is the Guild… and they treat weavers terribly. And they kill without remorse. Ugh.
7. The whole world in The Under the Never Sky Trilogy
*The Aether. Is that enough to hate this world? And the fighting… and the war. Although.. there is Roar 😛
8. New York (all of the US) in The Partials Sequence
*Well, there is the RM. And there is Partials. And it’s scary!!
9. The US in The Blackcoat Rebellion
*Although this is the least horrible of the horrible, it’s still awful. Having to take tests to see what “class” you will be in? 
10. Claysoot & “Over the Wall” in Taken
Claysoot isn’t actually that bad except that all males disappear on their 18th birthday, but the outside world is not nice. Typical controlled environment.

Well that was a rather depressing list 😛 What did you pick? Link up!!

      Ah no, you wouldn’t be the first! We’d team up!!! Oh gosh, I know right (Partials)… so freaking sad… I don’t know how Kira did it 🙁

    • Lauren

      OH agreed, totally better to daydream about that <3

      Partials is SOOOOO good. It’s definitely not as depressing as the rest, well… it’s kind of depressing but I won’t spoil anything lo, but just SOOO good 🙂

    • Lauren

      Oh yes, definitely for good reasons! I’ve seen some of these picks on a lot of blogs so clearly we are not the only ones either 😉

    • Lauren

      Ew, so right. Those flesh eating things (I can’t remember the name right now for some reason lol). That whole country sucks.

    • Lauren

      I am too, although I’m not sure I will see it in the theatres. I really loved that series so I don’t want to build too much hype up for it! I’m actually more eager to see how they do the following books. Ok, nevermind.. I am super excited for it haha.

    I didn’t do a TTT for this topic, but Hunger Games / Delirium / Divergent / Under the Never Sky totally would have been on mine! Basically every dystopian world seems like a place I’d want to avoid… Haha!

      Haha, so true Hannah. I almost didn’t do one for this topic either but I realized I have been dipping out on any of the topics that make me think (haha) so that is pointless. This one was a struggle for me though honestly!!! Some people said they would want to live in reverie/the tides, and I couldn’t BELIEVE IT! Ugh… I would really hate it there I think 😛

    I can’t believe I forgot to put Crewel on my list! I definitely would not wanna live there lol thanks for stopping by my post

    Heh, it’s funny you mention it because I know I have also thought at numerous points while reading YA dystopians that I would definitely NOT want to live there either. Nor would I be able to survive! It’s interesting that you mention Ravka because my first thought when I read Shadow and Bone was how cool it would be to live in the Little Palace in Os Alta… but I totally didn’t even think about that huge evil Shadow Fold, ha!

      OHHH! I totally agree, I would love to live in the Little Palace!! It sounds amazing and FUN! But the Shadow Fold scares me too much lol.
