Top Ten Tuesday (3)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks theme is Top Ten Favorite Books With (your choice) Setting. I decided to choose my top favorite books with completely made-up settings (in no particular order).


1.  Anything by Tamora Pierce

2. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

3. Hawksong by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

4. Abarat by Clive Barker

5. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

6. Howl's Moving Castle by Dinna Wynne Jones

7. Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith

    1. Check them out! I'm not usually into a lot of fantasy/made up worlds but these are all stellar.

  2. Great list! It's been years since I've read anything by Tamora Pierce but I enjoyed reading her Circle of Magic series :) I hope to get around to Jones' Howl's Moving Castle one of these days...

    1. Definitely! Most of them I just stumbled across at one point or another. They're all great though. Some crazy worldbuilding in there.

  6. Yes, yes, yes to Harry Potter. It's probably my favorite fantasy setting ever. And one of my favorite series, too. I really nee to read Tamora Pierce. I actually live in the town where she lives, so I feel doubly bad.

  11. OH MY GOD

    I swear to god no one EVER talks about Abarat and it's a damn shame because that series (and the artwork that goes with it) is INSANELY awesome. (I think all my readers are getting sick because Abarat gets mentioned in easily 75% of my posts hahaha)

    1. But on a sidenote that I've calmed down and actually looked at the rest of this list....I LOVE THIS LIST. It is rare that I come across a list I've read all the books of AND really, really loved them all

    2. Okay 1) I'm really impressed that you've read all of the books on this list because I feel like most people have never read half of them 2) You obviously have really good taste because these are all some of my favorites
