Why living in my top 5 bookish world woud be Such A Bad Idea!

Today in Top 5 Tuesday imagined by Shanah @bionicbookworm she asked us our top 5 worlds we would want to live in.

I am very sad to tell you that I came to a dreary conclusion: I would meet a cruel fate in every one of them.


Oh I hear you thinking: What? You badass Sophie? Words Jedi? Master of the snarky comeback? Cunning reader? YOU would not survive? IMPOSSIBLE!

Well you can stop flattering me because I swear I am not so extraordinary….

And I will prove it!

I love dystopian novels but….

If I lived in the universe of Angelfall *yes I have a not so secret crush on Raffe* I would not like to hide my crazy mother before she tries to wrestle a fallen angel with an ice pick just to end being sting by a huge hybrid scorpio!

I may have followed Crav Maga and Kick Boxing classes I still can’t handle an angelic sword, even named Pooky Bear…


I could try Lifl1k3’s universe because there is also a hottie named Zeke I could do goo goo eyes to. I am speaking of blue eyes drop dead gorgeous and indestructible Zeke. I don’t care if he is droid. But I do care about my skin and would not want to end burnt so badly that I would catch cancer. Between the sun’s deadly rays I really don’t relish in being chased by droid bounty hunters and their crazy dogs! If by miracle I escaped unscathed it would be to end in the Kraken’s stomach. Eeew.


If I landed in Red Queen’s universe and I happened to have some unatural gift for a red blood human I would risk being mentally tortured by Queen Elara! Especially if I caught the prince’s attention. When you know that I could not hold my mom’s sever glare for 30 seconds before confessing my deed I let you imagine how I would crumple under Queen Elara’s ministration! And I can’t even master electricity as I failed miserably in my technology test in high school!


Even the softer dystopian universe of The Selection would see me chewed and spit by the beauty queens with the deadly tongues! Mind you I have never mastered the perfect smoky eye technique! Nope.


I could try Fae? You would think that these winged creatures who love to dance would be all sweetness but no!

In ACOTAR universe I would end up below the mountain and being killed by Amarantha. Or stalked by a Beastly Prince obssessed with me and trying to snuff out all my joy!

In The Cruel Prince universe I would be bullied and tortured by cruel fae. I could not impress them by my sword mastery as I can’t handle a sword to save my life!


The shadowhunters universe is a big no as I would end being eaten by demonic creatures. I don’t know the first thing about runes or magic or …. Eaten alive by the Big Bad Wolf I tell you!


As you see I am completely ill equiped to survive my favorite bookish universe.


I found a world where I could hope being happy and not meet an atrocious death!




I bet I could even eat pancakes for my dinner. 😀 

And you what would be your favorite world to live in?

Thanks for reading!

  1. This is the most relatable post, because I would be totally lost in all those fictional worlds and probably get attacked and find my early end

  2. Ha those GIF’s- spot on! I laughed so hard… 🙂

  3. Oh no lol! I’d love to meet Raffe too, I love, love, love him with my whole heart. But since I grew up a little north of the Bay Area that book scared the living daylights out of me. I’d been almost everywhere the story took place and everything was too easy to visualize. Especially Alcatraz Island *shudders*. Fabulous post!

      Oooh I visited Alcatraz three years ago Jen! And yes I can see why it creeped you out LOL

  4. Ha! Ha! I think the truth is none of us would survive a second in some of our fav universes/worlds, because we were never written to be in them. But, if we were to rewrite ourselves, then, maybe we would give ourselves the necessary abilities (and then some) to go kick-ass!

    What do you think?

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      Well I think that I love your idea of rewriting us Alexandra! Now how would you rewrite you? Which power would you master or which ability would you possess? I would love telekinesis and mastering fire!

  5. ahahah as always, a perfect humoristic post of yours !

    Even when you have no idea of thoses worlds, truly entertaining xx

      Thank you so much Kristina!!!!

  6. This is awesome! I would probably die in my favorite worlds too. Except for Harry Potter, I might be able to survive there, because I would be a Ravenclaw and definitely not involved in any of Harry’s adventures!

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      Hahaha a brainiac Brittany? LOL

  7. Bahaha I can’t even master makeup because I don’t even wear makeup. I’m pretty sure I’ll poke my own eye out… so we’ll both get booted out of The Selection together. WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

      Thank you sister! We could form a band LOL

  8. LOL It’s so funny you mention Lifel1k3 like that. I was going to add it because *hottie androids* but then I was like oh…… there’s this that would kill me, and this that sounds terrifying, and this is just hazardous! I wouldn’t last very long!
    Thanks for such a great post! Added you to the list 🙂

      Well Shanah we could try to have each other’s back and survive …maybe. But I call dibbs on Zeke! LOL

  9. Fun post! I think the only world I would like to live in is maybe Hogwarts from Harry Potter. All of my other favorites are ones I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t survive either, lol.

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      Hahaha yes Hogwart to fly on huge birds or brooms and let’s not forget play Quidditch!

  10. Love it!

      Thank you Janine!!!

  11. Well, don’t feel alone. I wouldn’t survive either. Since I read and watch mostly horror and the characters die left and right. LOL Love this, Sophie!

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      Oh yes I bet you’d die in really horrific manner Laura with all the monsters and psycho in your books LOL

  12. I haven’t read all of these books myself, but I loved hearing your reasoning. I think I would probably die in the Shadowhunter world as well, but I like to pretend I’d make friends with some downworlders and somehow manage to get by! And if it was in the steampunky past, just think of all the cool gadgets! I totally wouldn’t survive the ACOTAR world, that’s for sure. The fae would get me real easy xD I want to read Lifelike and Angelfall! I doubt I would survive those either xD

      A protector! That’s a good idea to survive Olivia!!!!

  13. LOL I’m with Sam, most of the worlds I read about are contemporaries and I would mange just fine. But the few fantasy worlds I have read about? Nope, I’d be a goner. Wouldn’t last any time at all. Fae, vampires, werewolves, demons… I wouldn’t stand a chance! Womp womp.

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      Bwahahaha womp womp indeed! Maybe we could help each other and set traps to escape unscathed? LOL

  14. Most of my favorite books are contemporaries. The worlds are a lot less scary. Though, as a mundane in the Shadowhunters’ world, I wouldn’t have the sight, so NY would be NY, right?

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      Hahaha yes NY would be NY. But bad demons would still be bad demons too even if you did not see them Sam LOL

  15. This post was hilarious! Unless we have some kind super power it’s impossible to survive in dystopia and fantasy universe. I wouldn’t mind living in ACOTAR’s universe even if it’s a dangerous world because I love inner circle. If I had a companion like Raffe, I would probably die swooning over him LOL!

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      Die swooning over Raffe would be such a sweet death Raven LOL

  16. Yeah I don’t think I would survive in any PNR or UF worlds to be honest hehe I wouldn’t mind living in the Tairen Soul world though,

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      Hahahaha Tairen Soul as in a highlander novel? Because I know you love them 😉

Let's talk!
