The most awful of bookish worlds is the world that was or is or could be. Many times I've been in the pages of a book and I've wished heartily that I'd be able to close the book and leave the story. But the most awful of book-ish worlds seem to linger with you.
Here are some awful book-ish worlds I'd never want to live in:
The Underground Railroad
The Things They Carried
The World is Not Enough
Love is a Wild Assault
The Radium Girls
The Narrow Road to the Deep North
The Glass Castle
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
