Super Six Sunday (5)

Super Six Sunday is an original bookish meme created by Bewitched Bookworms and inspired by “Top Ten Tuesday” from The Broke and The Bookish .  Today’s topic is:

Super 6 Most Original World Building!

Ahh world building.  This can make or break a book, especially in the dystopian and fantasy worlds.  There are a lot that do it right, but here are six of my favorites.

These Broken Stars

One of my favorite parts of this book was how the authors made the world come to life.  I’m not exactly a visual person, but I was able to see everything about the world they created.  And I LOVED it.

The Mortal Instruments & The Infernal Devices

I am so intrigued by the world Cassandra Clare created.  It’s both separate from and interwoven in our world.  It is fascinating, which is why I LOVE that she has created separate series within the world of Shadowhunters and Downworlders.

The world created in this series starts out pretty small: a spaceship headed to a new world.  But Beth Revis really creates something fantastic with her world and it continues to grow and expand with each book.  This is just a completely amazing series and the world has a lot to do with that.

The Hunger Games

This is a world I NEVER want to live in.  But, it was well-crafted and that made the books that much better.

Divergent

The world of Divergent is relatively small — old Chicago.  But the society set up, combined with the new world/old world comparison help construct the world in my mind.  And while we have NO idea what is coming in Allegiant, I know the fleshing of the rest of the world building will be JUST as amazing.

Harry Potter (series)

DUH!  Harry Potter has some of the best of everything: writing, plot, characters, and of course, world-building.  This series is just plain perfection.

  1. Love your post!’ And you have some of my favorites in your list too. I mean, Harry Potter is just epic I think we can all agree on that!

    I love that you added “these broken stars” as I’m so excited to read it now even more.

    And YEAH for TMI – I mean this world is epic. Did you see the movie??? You must ;-))

  2. I love your picks! I had Harry Potter on my list too. J.K. Rowlings world building is amazing in that! I also am a BIG fan of the Across the Universe trilogy and I love the way Beth Revis kept revealing more and more of the world throughout the series. So good! Great picks. 😀

Lovely words from lovely people!
