This meme is a weekly top-ten list category. I'll try my best to follow this weekly, so yeah! Keep checking back, and make sure to go to The Broke and The Bookish where this awesome idea is from!
Top Ten Settings I'd Like to See More Of
- Portals into different realms. What do I mean by this? Examples include: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, Wings/Fairy Lies by E.D. Baker. These settings are soooo awesome for imagination and believing in fantasy, and I will never get tired of them. Sometimes life in the "real" world is tough, so its nice to escape into a new land sometimes.
- Living on farms. Examples include: Ten Miles Past Normal by (I forget...), A Mango-Shaped Space by Wendy Mass. These books are always unique and I love it when nature and freedom and similar subjects are tied into the book.
- Very controlled societies (generally dystopia) (and generally the protagonist breaks free of this society). Examples include: The Declaration by Gemma Malley, the Uglies quartet by Scott Westerfeld, Inside Out/Outside In by Maria V. Snyder. The joy in these is usually the protagonist finding a way out or fighting against corruption, etc. and I always enjoy those awesome rebels.
- The world of Harry Potter. No explanation needed.
- Underground societies. Examples include: City of Ember by Jeanne DePrau. Such a fascinating, foreign place that really makes you think about different possibilities of where people could be living in the present or future.
- Third-world-ish, poor dystopia societies. Examples: District 12 and may other districts from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Sometimes its nice when the corruption of dystopian societies is recognized by everyone, and ya. Hunger Games is awesome, and it was the first time I had come across a dystopia that wasn't essentially making people have a good life.
- Timeless settings. As in, settings and time periods that could be just about anywhere or anytime. Allows for plenty of imagination and personal connection.
- Mountains and/or mountain communities. Examples include: The Princess Academy by Shannon Hale. These are so unique and refreshing and I personally feel really connected. Both wilderness adventure and non-wilderness adventure are awesome.
- How about an underwater society that is NOT about mermaids and NOT from the perspective of aquatic life such as fish? I mean, I don't have anything against mermaids, but how about something more original please?
- Mazes or huge games. Examples, both of which I have yet to read: The Maze Runner, Ready Player One. These are so fascinating, and really bring a new perspective on life and the meaning of life and society as a whole.
