Hey Everyone,

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and Bookish and has now been transferred to The Artsy Reader Girl.

This week is Bookish Worlds I’d Want To/Neer Want To Live In, I couldn’t think of ten answers so I have six instead.

A Darker Shade final for Irene


Red London from the Shades of Magic Trilogy (Want to Live In)

Red London is the home of Kell and Rhys, my interpretation of this world is a mix between Asgard and 1600s, because of Pirates!!. I would love to walk around the palace, look at all the rooms and I want to sneak into Kell’s room (creepy fan breaking into someone’s room and smelling everything). I want to visit the docks and the black market, I would also love to learn Arnesian.

White London from the Shades of Magic Trilogy (Don’t Want To Live In)

White London is not a place that I would like to live in let alone visit. Even with the laws that had been made but also magicians enslaving magicians. And also a place where everything is white would be very depressing.



Cainsille from the Cainsville series by Kelley Armstrong (Want To Live)

I love small towns. And this town I would love to go to. It’s filled with mystery and magic, a love triangle that has been the towns struggle to survive, Welsh mythology and GARGOYLES!! I’m not a big fan of gargoyles since watching the Doctor Who with Carey Mulligan but there are about 100 gargoyles in the town of Cainsville and there is a festival to find all of them (Doesn’t that sound exciting).



Rockton from the Casey Duncan series by Kelley Armstrong (Want To Live)

Ever wanted to leave your life for two years away from your friends and family with no technology and living in the middle of nowhere. Urm I do! This place may be crawling with criminals and other people who just want to hide like Casey Duncan but you are so engrossed with the mystery and the locals, who wouldn’t want to live there.



Victorian London from the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness (Want To Live)

In the second book of the trilogy, Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont travel in time for Diana to learn more about her magic and find the Ashmole. And I would like to meet the people that they encounter along the way especially Matthew’s father. Also, I knew there was going to be an adaptation but I was honestly surprised that it was coming out this year.



1209 France (Alias) from Labyrinth by Kate Mosse (Don’t Want To Live)

This was not an ideal place to live at that time. People were killed, Alias was betrayed by her husband as well as her sister. She was on the run and it was not good for her. While I am intrigued what that place would be like at that time but I don’t want something handed to me in order to protect but your sister will do anything in order to get her hands on it, no thanks. And Alias’s death was awful 😦

I couldn’t think of any other worlds that I would like/dislike to live in. But I think the ones mentioned I would like to see the most.

      Definitely a cool place to vist like Matthew’s home in France, Diana’s Aunts house and also the magic. I love how the magic in this was unique, dark and very different to what most magic themed books are like. I really liked your choices as well xx
