Top Ten Worlds I'd Never Want to Live in and Characters I'd Neve Want to Trade Places With

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Worlds I'd Never Want to Live in and Characters I'd Neve Want to Trade Places With.

Whew that was a mouthful! I'm doing both topics in one.

    1) Any character from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin – Nothing good happens to these people. I wouldn’t want to be any of them.
    2) Delirium by Lauren Oliver – While there are characters who fight for their right to love, I wouldn’t want to live in a world where 90% of the populate thinks love is a disease.
    3) Haven from Sempre by JM Darhower – Because even though Carmine is kind of a hottie, I wouldn’t have wanted to be a slave first of all, but I also wouldn’t want to be in love with someone who hands over his future to the mafia.
    4) Cara from Alienated by Melissa Landers – Being in love with an alien isn’t really enough to make me want to be a foreign exchange student on a different planet—even if I had to escape Earth just to keep from being killed. I’m not that brave.
    5) Any character from any zombie book – or should I just say any zombie world ever. With as many zombie books as I’ve read and movies that I’ve watched, I feel as if I’ve already lived the zombie-apocalypse. I just don’t think I’d make it.
    6) Parasitology by Mira Grant – Having a tapeworm is one of my biggest fears—purposefully ingesting one for health reasons takes this nightmare to a whole new level, especially the idea of the worm taking over and moving from intestine to brain—yeah, count me out.
    7) Verity from Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein – Well for one, she doesn’t make it out. But to be tortured and all of that, no thank you. She does seem to have a sense of humor about the whole thing, but still…
    8) Mercy from the Cambion series by Shannon Dermott – Mercy annoys me to the point where if I were her, I’d physically harm myself.
    9) Blood of Eden by Julie Kagawa – Vampires who don’t have any option but to feed on human blood, the Red Plague….yeah, I’ll skip it, but thanks anyway.
    10) Age of X by Richelle Mead – Just about as bad as living in a world where people think love is a disease is living in a world where religion and belief in God is pretty much outlawed. Yeah—it’s bad enough as it is.

Which characters would you never want to trade places with? Or which worlds would you never want to live in? Let me know!

  1. Song of Ice and Fire /almost/ made my list... I think I got hung up because I couldn't figure how who had it worst. :)

  2. Living in a zombie world would be horrible, but on the bright side, you are always just one bite away from being on the winning side. Ha ha ha ha.

  3. I'd live in the Song of Ice and Fire world. Not as any of the characters that appear in the book though because like you said, nothing good ever seems to happen to them. I'd rather not be stuck in any world with zombies or somewhere with too many monsters and vampires...unless I'm a vampire myself. One book I wouldn't want to trade places with is Sold. I don't want to be a 13 year old sex slave.

    Much as I love watching Game of Thrones and reading A Song of Ice and Fire, I wouldn't want to live in that world or be any of the characters. Even if it meant I could kiss Jon Snow!

  6. Oh my goodness, why didn't I think of Game of Thrones?! It would probably suck to be just about anyone in that series...except maybe Daenerys...oh, how I love Daenerys <3

  7. I haven't read Game of Thrones but I know I wouldn't want to be in that series...it's like a death sentence.

  8. Agreed on the zombie outbreak worlds; I wouldn't last a week! I haven't
    heard of Parasite before, but it sounds interesting (if horrifying).

  9. That's why I just mentioned the whole series. All of the characters seem like they have nothing but tragedy in their lives. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  10. BAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Best comment ever! The ultimate positive outlook...

  11. I love the idea of the Song of Ice and Fire world, but yeah, with all of the wars and tragedy, even for the secondary characters--there's just nothing good that happens. I can't say I'd want to be 13 years old again, and I definitely wouldn't want to be a sex slave....great point!

  12. Yeah, THG also. Unless you don't get sent to the games, but still, it's not an ideal place. Thanks for stopping by!

  13. Haha...yeah, kissing Jon Snow wouldn't make up for all of the other tragedy surrounding them--I don't think, unfortunately. Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Yeah, Dany's awesome, and I still need to read book 5 in the series, but I'm afraid she won't escape tragedy just like the other characters haven't. Guess we'll see. At least she has her dragons.

  15. It's nothing short of a death sentence for sure. Thanks for stopping by!

  16. I didn't love Parasite as a book, but the concept is definitely terrifying. Thanks for commenting!

  17. Great picks! Completely agree on A Song of Ice and Fire.... nobody is safe in that world!
