Ha, I love your list this week Pamela. I have Bella and Katniss on my list for those that I wouldn't want to trade places with.

What a great post :) I couldn't think of anything to join in this week, yet while reading yours I agreed with every single one!!

The first two made my list, too. Game of Thrones doesn't sound like a nice place to be either.

Nice picks! My mom wouldn't let me read Goosebumps when I was young because she thought I'd get too scared. I wore her down and read my first one, and was totally freaked out! Mom was right and, no, not even as an adult do I want to live in this world.

i laughed out loud at 'i don't want to live in a world where vampires sparkle.' amen to that :)

Greg Hill said...

Good choices! I'm not real fond of zombies myself, actually. And yeah to Game of Thrones- good grief would there be anything worse than being a peasant in that world?? :)

great list, I think my favorite bit about it is your reasons for Twilight 'I don't want to live in a world where vampires sparkle.' haha Its very true

My TTT

I agree 100% with #1,2,and 4. Those are the worse. Have you read Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler. Here world is here in the future and its awful and so realistic. Great picks!

Ellie M. said...
January 28, 2014 at 1:06 PM

Those are some awesome picks! I don't think I would have want to live there too, good reasons!

Hope you can stop by my Top Ten

Great list!
"I don't want to live in a world where vampires sparkle." PREACH IT!
"If you are a peasant in this world, you just die." Or a Stark :D
As for ASoIaF, I'd like to live there, I think. :D
Happy reading!

I AM BACK~ *cackles madly* It was the AVAST!! In other news yeah I've only read 4 of these - but also not worlds I would want to live in.

Maggie Gordon said...
January 28, 2014 at 4:44 PM

Ha! I never thought of Goosebumps for a challenge like this, but you're totally right! That world was terrifying!

Love your list! I wouldn't want to live in worlds like Twilight, Game of Thrones, Goosebumps or The Darkest Minds either :)

Michelle said...
January 28, 2014 at 7:15 PM

LOl, Goosebumps! I wouldn't have thought of that but it's so true....any world where dummies, disembodied hands or monster hamsters are a reality is just not worth it.

I noticed a lot of Katnisses in this week's TTT. No one wants to live in Panem!

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 7:56 PM

Westeros is not a good place to live!

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 7:57 PM

There are so many horrible places in fiction, I can see how you can forget about Panem. :)

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:31 PM

The TTT can be really hard sometimes. I look forward to your next TTT!

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:31 PM

Westeros is definitely not a good place to live!

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:33 PM

LOL. Mom is always right! :)

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:33 PM

Am I right? Nobody wants to hang out with sparkly vampires.

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:34 PM

I think Westeros may actually be worse than Panem.

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:34 PM

Sparkly vampires are definitely a no no. :)

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:35 PM

I haven't read Parable of the Sower. I will have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation.

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:35 PM

I am glad that you enjoyed it. :)

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:35 PM

The Darkest Minds is soooooo good! Enjoy! :)

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:35 PM

I am glad that you liked my choices. :)

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:36 PM

You are braver than I am, if you want to live in Westeros!

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:36 PM

I am so excited you figured out the problem! Avast is very picky about social media.

As long as there is heat and coffee I will live anywhere..but expect me to be living out on my own away from civilization..perhaps in an abandon library..LOL

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:37 PM

My friend and I did a marathon of the Goosebumps show a few months ago, and it reminded me of how crazy that universe is!

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:37 PM

These are some pretty awful places to live!

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:38 PM

Exactly! I don't want to live in a world where dummies are alive!

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 8:39 PM

An abandoned library sounds great. Just make sure that you have a second pair of your glasses, if you don't have perfect vision. You don't want to be like that guy in the Twilight Zone episode.

Lauren said...
January 28, 2014 at 9:14 PM

EEK!!! World War Z... absolutely. I hate zombies. Oh, so of course Feed is awful as well! Haha... Twilight makes me laugh lol. The world of Goosebumps is awful! You had some great, unique choices... I would never have though to pick Goosebumps!!

Nara @ Looking for the Panacea said...
January 28, 2014 at 10:38 PM

HAHAHAHA TWILIGHT!
omg that's hilarious. so true though. SO TRUE.
And I actually haven't read the book, but I have seen the movie and World War Z would be a terrible world to live in- the zombies were so fast in the movie D: Freaking scary!

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 11:03 PM

I watched the Goosebumps show recently with a friend, so the series was fresh in my head. :) I am glad that you liked my picks! :)

Pamela D said...
January 28, 2014 at 11:05 PM

Zombies are my worst fear, because in zombie books/movies, a cure is never discovered. The zombies always win.

Lexxie said...
January 29, 2014 at 8:34 AM

Great list, Pamela! As much as I love reading, and immersing me in those world for the time the story lasts (and sometimes a little bit longer) I don't think there is any worlds I'd actually want to live in. I love my own world just the way it is :)

I love your list! I don't want to live in a world where vampires sparkle either, or where Bella exists! I also picked Divergent & The Hunger Games for obvious reasons. Great picks & thanks for stopping by my post :)

Pamela D said...
January 29, 2014 at 11:09 PM

These are some pretty awful worlds!

Pamela D said...
January 29, 2014 at 11:09 PM

Thanks for stopping by mine too! Bella is totally annoying. :)

Vilia said...
February 2, 2014 at 12:38 AM

I think the sparkly vampires is the scariest of the lot :)

Pamela D said...
February 2, 2014 at 7:24 PM

I completely agree with you! :)
