I actually have a ton of worlds I would never want to step foot in, so I’m just going to put a random list together in no particular order.
- Hunger Games Trilogy– I don’t want to live anywhere that thinks a death battle between teens/kids is a proper way to keep rebellion from happening.
- Rot & Ruin series – Most of us have an emergency zombie plan, but lets face it nobody actually wants to have to try to survive that. This world is set in a world where zombies are normal but still just as gross and scary, and the humans are usually more dangerous. No thank you…
- The 5th Wave by Rick Yancy– A world where aliens are trying to kill off the human race…yeah I’ll pass on that too.
- Waterproof by Amber Garr – This is a world where drinkable water is incredibly scarce, and the water that is available comes from a really disgustingly evil place.
- Divergent Trilogy – I would have loved this place to begin with but Insurgent and Allegiant kind of killed it for me. Too many conflicts and too many weird secrets.
- Parasite by Mira Grant – Okay so parasites seems like a small concern when compared to systematic murder or zombies, but they wig me out and this book is really creepy at times.
- The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda – It sucks to be a human in this world…and even the vampires are a little weird.
- Gated by Amy Christine Parker – So this is technically the real world but it’s set in what is essentially a cult. Me and cult mentally do not mix, and the scary thing is if I was raised there I might not know that it’s bad.
- Dualed by Elsie Chapman – While it seems cool to be trained to fight and kill from a young age, it stops being cool when you have to kill other people who may or may not look exactly like you.
- Ashfall Trilogy by Mike Mullin – A post-apocalyptic world created by the (real) super volcano under Yellowstone erupts. I don’t know what’s more scary the fact that Mike Mullin creates something so believable and gritty or the fact that it could literally happen.
