[Coffee Shop Talks] The Bookish World I Would Never Want to Live in!

Last week we shared our favorite bookish worlds. This week we're discussing the ones we would never want to step foot in. What immediately came to mind was Pamela Palmer's Washington, V.C. Better known as Vamp City.

It's an alternate version of D.C. that is always in a state of perpetual dusk. The buildings are crumbling and the ground is swampy. The vampires are merciless. They don't want to fall in love with you. They want to eat you, kill you, fuck you, or make you a slave.

"Though only a few trees stood between the rows of buildings, they were gray and twisted, with few to no leaves. She saw no bushes, no grass. Nothing to alleviate the appearance of a desolate, ruined . . . lifeless . . . place."

The world is a dark and depressing wasteland. I couldn't imagine spending my life living in fear and darkness. There is nothing at all appealing about settling down in Vamp City . . . but it sure is fun to read about.

Good choice. I don't think I would want to live in Vamp City either.

There's another series that I'm woefully behind on. I didn't realize the world was that bleak but it does sound like a great read!

I definitely should get around to reading this one. Heck usually most of the UF books I read I would love to live in such a world. As long as it's not a post apocalyptic one LOL

I love READING about Vamp City but yeah I wouldn't want to live there.
