This week we are headed into the settings of the books. I thought this one would be hard but it wasn’t as hard as I thought. There are tons of books that I read that I really enjoy the world/setting we are put in from the book.
So here are my
Top Ten Book World Settings
1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
I love the world where magic exist side by side with non-magic users. Brilliant and enjoyable.
2. Kate Daniels Series by Ilona Andrews
Magic and Technology ebbs and flows throughout.
3. Allie Beckstrom Series by Devon Monk
People can tap into magic that flows throughout cities in pipelines underground. It works the same way as water pipes. Really interesting concept.
4. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
Japanese heritage mixed with Steampunk (gadgets) . Beautiful and Amazing!
5. Lords of Deliverance by Larissa Ione
This series brings in a little of her other two series. So we see the 4 Horsemen of the apocalypse, demons and aliens all intermixed in the real world.
6. Shifters Unbound by Jennifer Ashley
Shifters are made to live in old neighborhoods that are run down and fenced in. These are called Shifter Towns. Interesting twist on what happens when shifters let themselves become known to the public.
7. Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs
This series has a little of every paranormal species. I think that is part of what makes this series so good. You never know when Vampires, Shifters or Fey might appear.
8. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I thought this was an interesting take on what a society could turn out like after warring with each other. The groups are also fascinating.
9. Downside Ghosts Series by Stacia Kane
I love these books and the setting is very gritty and seems quite down to earth. There was a day of reckoning where all the ghosts/spirits got out and terrorized people. So now there is no more religion other than one. Facts are Truth. Intense. Oh it has witches too.
10. Finninkan of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
This series really surprised me. It is YA fantasy and it is awesome. The land and people with different languages are amazing but you don’t feel bogged down by details.
