Lists, Top Ten

Kayla’s Top Ten Tuesday: Fictional Worlds I’m Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is a Thanksgiving/I’m thankful for freebie. I have so many things to be thankful for: Christ, family, a job, and everything. But this is a bookblog, so I’m going to list some books. Since the threat of another lockdown seems imminent, I’m going to focus some some fictional worlds that will help us all escape.

Westeros: Game of Thrones

If there is one world more messed up than ours, it’s this one. Westeros is dangerous, and it makes me feel better not to be apart of this political intrigue.

Ingary: Howl’s Moving Castle

This book seems to end up on all of my lists. Ingary is such a beautiful fairytale world. Of course I want to visit.

The Continent: The Witcher

Like Westeros, the Continent is not a world I’d actually like to live, but it sure is fun to escape to it in the book.

Hooflands: Across the Green Grass Fields

The Hooflands are absolutely beautiful. Also, there are unicorns.

Capton: A Deal With the Elf King

There’s more than one world in Elise Kova’s bestselling novel, but Capton is the human city right next to the fade (the barrier between the elf world and the human world). It just seems like a cute, cozy little cult town.

The World of Faery: The Iron Raven

I adored this fantasy story. Robin Goodfellow is so well represented as the main character here. Here’s my full review.

The Veil: Liars and Thieves

I know I’ve talked a lot about this one, but it is a fantastic fantasy read. The world is excitingly different from ordinary fantasy worlds with each fantasy race being represented fairly. There’s no “born evil” race of goblins in this find.

The World of Harry Potter

Of course Harry Potter is going to make the list. What do you think I am?

Narnia: The Chronicles of Narnia

It was really hard to pick between this and Middle Earth for the number one slot, but after many coin tosses, I did it.

Middle Earth: The Hobbit; The Lord of the Rings

There we have it! Which fantasy world are you most thankful for?

  1. This is such a fun post idea! Love it though I’ve only read 5/10 world’s you’ve mentioned – I love all or most. Middle Earth some how never won my heart. I just couldn’t love it as much as HP, Narnia or GOT.

    1. Honestly, I read the Hobbit first, and Middle Earth did not impress me. I thought there was too much world building and not enough plot. Then I read Fellowship of the Ring (which has even more world building) and it somehow changed my mind. LOL! I don’t blame you for loving the others more, however. It’s definitely one of the harder novels to get into.
