 Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Worlds I'd Never Want To Live In OR Top Ten Characters I'd NEVER Want To Trade Places With
brought to you by the broke and the bookish

Jeni's Picks:
1. Dashti from Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale: I just know myself and if I was stuck in a room with a brat like Lady Saren I would've strangled her. 
2. Kate in Heart on a Chain by Cindy C Bennet: I grew up in a loving family and it would be hard to grow up in one like Kates. 
3. Karigan G'ladheon from The Green Rider by Kristen Britain:  I feel so bad to what happens to Karigan in book 4.  I hope better things happen for her in book 5 Mirror Sight coming out in May. 
4. Nick Dunne from Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn: This book is insane. I can't even imagine being in this characters shoes. I don't want to ruin the book for anyone that hasn't read it so I'll leave it at that. 
5. Allegiant by Veronica Roth: I'm pretty sure if I was a character in this book I would've ended up dead. So nope I definitely wouldn't want to live in this world. 

Emily's Picks

1. The Maze Runner by James Dashner. This world would be one that I would not survive in.  I would have died just from sheer terror.  After finding out I was locked in a arena with a bunch of hormone infused boys.  No thank you. 
2. The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong. I really liked this series, but I would not like to live on the run, constantly wondering if someone was after me because I was a supernatural.  It would get tiresome really quick.
3. Tess of the d'Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy. I hated, hated, hated this book, and I felt horrible for poor Tess the entire book. Angel?  Not so Angelic. I would have hated living like Tess. This book makes the stark reality of living in England as a poor person graphic. And very heart wrenching and come on, every one wants a happy ending, which you will not get with this book. (yeah, I know it's a classic)
4. Fanny Price from Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. Fanny, oh Fanny.  She is just so sweet, and understanding, and good.  Maybe too good.  She should have confessed her love to Edmund and all the silliness would have been avoided. Am I right?  I'm right.
5. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Yep, I went there.  I would not have had the guts or the where with all, to one, hunt for food, two, volunteer, and three survive in a world like that.  I would have hidden under my bed until it was safe to come out..or in their case, until I starved. I would not envy that world, not one second.  It sure makes for a great read though.

  1. I would say great picks but I can't because I wouldn't want to live in those worlds or trade places with them either.
