Super Six Sunday: Creators of their World


Super Six Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Bewitched Bookworms. Each week features a book related topic and you are able to spotlight your Super Six! Super Six Sunday is a take on Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Topic:
Super Six Books with the Most Original World Building

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

 It's Harry Potter!!

 2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games brought us to such an amazing futuristic Rome! It was a great balance of futuristic technology, to the barbaric behavior of blood lust.

 3. Divergent by Veronica Roth

Factions, living in peace in a futuristic city in the US...or at least trying to! Can't wait for the last book to find out what is going to happen.

4. Anomaly by Krista McGee

Luminary isn't out yet...but, Anomaly built up such a fantastic scientific underground world.

5. Forbidden (The Book of Mortals) by Ted Dekker & Tosca Lee

We are again, in a futuristic Rome, there are elements of the technology of today, to go with the more rustic living of the past. I've only read Forbidden so far, I'm looking to read the last two books.

 6. River of Time by Lisa T. Bergren

We are brought back into time in an all out battle! It was so easy to imagine everything around you as you read it.


I could go on, but these are the ones that really stand out for me now. The creativity of the world enhanced the story to just push it up and over! 

What are the books that stand out for you? What world has left you going, WOW! I would love/hate to go there?

I put Harry Potter on my list as well! Hogwarts alone is enough to make it amazing. I've never heard of Anomaly or Luminary before but they sound really awesome. I'll have to check those out! Great picks. :D
