Heck, I'm biased because I live within a hour of Forks, but so what?
Incarnate (Newsoul, #1)
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
The world is amazing with everything you could want. It's part dystopian and part fantasy!

Great high fantasy dystopian world with glittering palaces and dark shadows.
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Just so amazing... it's impossible to describe.


  1. I have THG, The Iron King, Harry Potter and Clockwork Angel on my list as well :) Haven't had a chance to read A Game of Thrones yet, but I'd really like to since I want to watch the show, but I know that once I've watched it, I'll not read the books. Also, I've heard great and bad things about Incarnate, but I think I'll give it a try as well :)

    My TTT

    Siiri @ Little Pieces of Imagination :)

  2. Great list of books! I still seriously need to read Shadow and Bone...
    And I've seen Wings on a lot of lists you've made! For some reason, I'm just not a huge fan of that series. :/

  3. I can't believe I left Shadow and Bone off my list! It's such an amazing world. Great list!
    My Top Ten

  4. Love the list! I've only read The Hunger Games and Harry Potter - and agree, both Worlds were spectacular.

  5. The Hunger Games was amazingly realistic, but it bothers me we never learn what happened to Eurasia, Africa, and Australia. Surely there would've been some interaction between the nations, ar at least their rebels.

  6. Great list of books and I agree with all apart from Shadow and Bone just because I havent read it yet!!

  7. Fun list! GRRM would absolutely be my top choice for world-building. He is simply amazing. I am just starting Shadow and Bone, I'm so excited!!

  8. I have a few of these on my list as well, and a couple that almost made my list. Awesome choices! Here's my list.

  9. I have the Nevernever from the Iron Fey series on my list as well. Great choices!

  10. Yay for The Infernal Devices and yay for steampunky Victorian England!! :)

    Really great choices. I also enjoyed the Chicago setting of the Divergent series. :)

  12. I agree, The Hunger Games really did have a very vivid world setting. I haven't read any of the other books you named, but I'm sure they're all great. I can't get over that book with the REALLY long title--it even takes long to say it! :-P
