Super Six Books with the Most Original World Building
I am super excited today about this topic because there are some amazingly creative bookish worlds out there! I had again a hard time picking the below Six but I think I choose some amazing ones! I cannot wait to hear about yours!!
OoOOo The Lunar Chronicles are amazing and I think the world building here was outstanding because Marissa Meyer managed to mingle so many genres and came up with this fantastic series. Not only do we have wonderful classic retellings, but also we have SciFi and Fantasy mingling perfectly in this world.
I think, one of the first things I thought while reading Crewel was : brilliant and awe inspiring! Crewel again come with a fantastic blend of genres, waving ScFi, Dystopia with some magical aspects. The whole concept of this world is fascinating and I love the description of the world these characters live in! Switching from a high tech world back into a very apocalyptic setting was something I didn’t expect at the end of Crewel - Now I am excited to finally read Altered!
Oh My God Guys! I just saw City of Bones (The first book in this amazing series) in the movies and HOLY FREAKING AWESOME, this world is so sooo incredible and amazing and I would just love to live there! I mean I loved these books already for so long, but now seeing it on the big screen reminded me why I loved it so much!
A contemporary setting with magic, Angels, Demons and all other supernatural creatures you might thing off. Then in addition this hot, gorgeous tattooed ( well not really) kick ass characters, characters relationships so full of incredible emotion makes this world so outstanding in my opinion!
Well, It is definitely not a secret how much I adore Julie Kagawa and one of her strength is world building. Especially The Iron Fey world is my favorite Fey related world. It is colorful, magic but also sometimes violent and gruesome. But then, there are characters so unique like the car Grimalkin, Iron Horse and more. She creates all kind of wonderful characters that range from a funny trickster like Puck to the brooding bad ass hero like Ash. This series and world will always be one of my favorites!°
Jay Kristoff created with The Lotus War a world unlike anything I have ever read! With a colorful blend of Fantasy, Steampunk and Dystopia and set in a lust Japanese environment is not something you come across so often. Even more, we have wonderful strong kick ass characters and the most unique and incredible creature ever: the Griffin Burru!
Oh Laini how I love thee! I remember reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone and being so overwhelmed with this lush story that I found myself being mesmerized and in bookish heaven. A classic Angel and Demon story uniquely blended in a high Fantasy backdrop but with contemporary elements. I do not think I have the right words to describe this world and creatures, but Laini Taylor created so many unique creatures that I am in awe of her imagination! I love when authors go beyond the usual and create something completely new!
Sadly, I could only pick 6 so I had to leave out some I truly wanted to add, but then decided against them because they are obvious choices, and books I keep talking about so often that I do not want to bore you with talking about the same books over and over! So here are my favorites:
- Harry Potter – No need to say anything right?
- The Fever world by Karen Marie Moning – I think I find a reason to add this series to all my Super 6 Posts…
So these were mine Super Six Books with the Most Original World Buildings and now I cannot wait to hear about yours!
