Top Ten Book Worlds I Love

This week the prompt for Top Ten Tuesday from the Broke and the Bookish was either ‘Top Ten Historical Settings You Love/ Ten Historical Settings You’d Love To See or Top Futuristic Books You Love/Ten Futuristic Societies I’d Love To Read in Books’. I kind of cheated on this one and made up my own. As you’ve probably guessed I am a sucker for detailed, imaginative, well-planned world building. I cannot get enough. Here are my Top Ten Ultimate Book Worlds (in no particular order).

(PS. Not all of these books are suitable for children, and this post contains a swear word!)

  1. Harry Potter

If you didn’t see this coming you’ve clearly not been paying attention.
