Top Ten Past and Future Book Settings that I Love


 

I am continuing with the Top Ten Lists from the The Broke and the Bookish blog!   This week it is sort of a free spin week of Past and Future Settings that you love.  I am going with my Top Ten Past and Future Book Settings that I Love! 
.................................................................................

5 Past Setting Books That I Love

1) The Color Purple (Alice Walker) - I think this book gives an excellent look at the struggles that people went through in not that far back past.

2)  Fingersmith (Sarah Waters) - This book is a very interesting read and did take me awhile to get through.  It is more of an adult complex mystery, but the details in the writing really create the scenes.

3) The Watchman (Alan Moore) - This book takes a look at the 1985 and superheros. 

4) Dracula  (Bram Stoker) - The book is set in the 1890's, but really paves the way for fantasy writing. 

5) Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Robert Louis Stevenson) - I wanted to through another classic into my past book list, who doesn't love split personalities and tons of mystery!!

5 Future Setting Books That I Love

1) The Dean Machine (Dylan Lee Peters) - I love this book, it really captures what could possibly happen in a future society.  As a society we are constantly looking for that miracle drug that will cure all, but at what expense. 

2) Slapstick (Kurt Vonnegut) - Another look at how society could end up looking like if we continue the path that we are on.  It is always an interesting read to me when you see where people think society is headed. 

3) The Hunger Games ( Suzanne Collins) - Same concept basically a loot at how society could end up in the future.   The book focuses on one society having everything and rest supporting it in fractions.  

4) Divergent  (Veronica Roth) - This book gives another look at society broken up into fractions, but not competing against one another the fractions are working together.  

5) The Maze Runner (

  1. These are some great choices! :) I really liked The Colour Purple and Dracula, too! Also a huge fan of The Hunger Games and Divergent (although I really didn't like how the series ended, sadly...). I have yet to read Maze Runner but I enjoy the movies xD Great post!
