  1. Sons from Afar (The Tillerman Cycle, book 6) by Cynthia Voigt
  2. Maybeth always did that, brought her good news to the table and held it out, like a little kid holding out her hand, then unwrapping her fingers to show some treasure, some stone or flower. She held her good news out to them all, giving it to them.
  3. Oh man I’d trade most of the things in my life to be a Tillerman…

  1. Dreams of Gods & Monsters {Daughter of Smoke & Bone, book 3) by Laini Taylor
  2. Here it was, then, a restoration to the natural order: hostility.
  3. Oh… too late. Back during the first book I decided I wanted to live in that world, but as predicted, I died quickly and now cannot answer this question again.

  1. The Runner (The Tillerman Cycle, book 4) by Cynthia Voigt
  2. Nobody ever ran cross-country more than one season, nobody except Bullet. It was just too hard.
  3. Honestly I’d live in any of the Tillerman Cycle books I think. And I quite like Bullet.

  1. Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, book 1) by Laini Taylor
  2. To her, the human form — plain as it was, and not spliced together with other species — was a missed opportunity.
  3. Ha! In theory, sure, but if I actually was in that world I know I would die.

  1. When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
  2. They’d spent enough time together that their bodies had pulled on each other, and they now bled at the same time, when the moon was a thin curve of light. If Miel had been anyone else, her knowing this, the steady rhythm of her knowing every month, would have been humiliating.
  3. Well I haven’t read far enough in to say for sure yet, but I think I might, yes.

  1. The Cursed Queen (The Impostor Queen, book 2) by Sarah Fine
  2. “And here I thought your dearest wish was to see me kill,” she whispers.
  3. Um…. I don’t think so. The world seems more interesting outside of Kupari, but all things considered I don’t think I’d like to be living in it.

  1. Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, book 1) by Laini Taylor
  2. And so it was that the golden godson swore his oath on a blacksmith’s anvil instead of the angel’s emerald.
  3. Um… Maybe if I could live in Weep instead of Zosma because I don’t fancy living in a place that doesn’t let girls being librarians or scholars or pretty much anything else! The universe as a whole appeals to me, however.

  1. The Impostor Queen (The Impostor Queen, book 1) by Sarah Fine
  2. The Valtia raises her arm, and the crowd parts to allow the men through. They stumble up the steps and throw themselves at her feet, their chests heaving.
  3. I honestly can’t even say. I’m 5 chapters in and I feel like I still know absolutely nothing about this world! It’s either really poor writing (re: world-building) or really quality writing (re: putting me in the main character’s mindset). Only time will tell I suppose!

  1. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
  2. His pleasure in music, though it amounted not to that extatic delight which alone could sympathize with her own, was estimable when contrasted against the horrible insensibility of the others; and she was reasonable enough to allow that a man of five and thirty might well have outlived all acuteness of feeling and every exquisite power of enjoyment. She was perfectly disposed to make every allowance for the colonel’s advanced state of life which humanity required.
  3. Only in theory. And if I could leave whenever I chose!

  1. Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, book 3) by Maggie Stiefvater
  2. Even thinking about the pit made long-ago venom hum and burn in his throat; effortlessly he conjured the image of warning-striped insects prowling the thin skin between his fingers. He had nearly forgotten how horrifying and compelling it was to relive the moment.
  3. Oh, of course. Who could resist a world with modern conveniences and magic and masterful sass? Not me!
