  1. Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, book 1) by Sarah J. Maas
  2. It was gargantuan, a vertical city of shimmering, crystalline towers and bridges, chambers and turrets, domed ballrooms and long, endless hallways. It had been built above the original stone castle, and cost a kingdom’s wealth to construct.
  3. Hahahahahaaa! No! Everyone sucks and everyone who doesn’t suffers.

  1. Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham
  2. That summer I also discovered the first alcoholic drink I actually liked the taste of, a drink that was very hip and happening at the time, and is still a sign of intellect and sophistication. I’m talking, of course, about the Fuzzy Navel.
  3. Well this is an autobiography and set in this actual world, so obviously my answer is:  No. No I would not like to live in this world. (But on a less depressing level, you might argue this book is set in the world of Hollywood, and no I wouldn’t want to live there either, it sounds way stressful.)

  1. All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
  2. Judith used to be the most beautiful woman in Bicho Raro, but then she’d moved, and now she was the most beautiful woman in Colorado Springs.
  3. I mean, I’d like to, as long as I don’t have to be a pilgrim. Because I know I have darkness inside me and I really do not want to know what it would manifest as! Yikes…

  1. The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, book 4) by Rick Riordan
  2. He soared up and scared an eagle out of it’s flight path, then plummeted toward the sea like he was born to fly, pulling out of a nosedive at the last second. His sandals skimmed the waves.
  3. HAHAHAHAHAHAAAA! No. The gods are suuuuper annoying.

  1. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  2. The earliest intelligence of the travellers’ safe arrival in Antigua after a favourable voyage, was received; though not before Mrs. Norris had been indulging in very dreadful fears, and trying to make Edmund participate them whenever she could get him alone; and as she depended on being the first person made acquainted with any fatal catastrophe, she had already arranged the manner of breaking it to all the others, when Sir Thomas’s assurances of their both being alive and well, made it necessary to lay by her agitation and affectionate preparatory speeches for a while.
  3. Uh…no… I kind of hate the Bertrams. Kind of a lot, in fact.

  1. Mind Games (Mind Games, book 1) by Kiersten White
  2. I wish my left arm didn’t hurt so much I wanted to die, because it also means I can’t tap tap tap my leg, and without that fidget I don’t know how to stop the thoughts and feelings flooding through me.
  3. Honestly at this point I don’t know nearly enough about this world to know if I would like it or not… I do like the idea of mind powers. (And do my eyes deceive me or are they exclusive to women? I do like that.) So perhaps I’ll say yes, but I have a feeling I’ve yet to come upon some crucial detail that will make me regret saying yes!

  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.
