A Fictional World I'd Love To Rule

In preparation for the release of Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes, book 4 in the Fallen Kingdoms series, a series strife with political intrigue and warring kingdoms, I was asked what fictional world I'd want to rule.

If I could rule or conquer any fictional world, I'd definitely want to rule the fictional world of Bethany Hagen's Landry Park.  You can read my review here.

This book takes place sometime in the future where the gentry class essentially rule the war-ravaged remains of the United States. A life of opulence and elegance and non-stop parties and balls and beautiful gowns ensues. A fashionista such as myself who loves clothing and dances would be at heaven here!! Also this book has major Pride&Prejudice and Downton Abbey vibes. I simply adore fine architecture and fine dining (and fine living for that matter as well), so the luxurious lifestyle and fun of this world is definitely appealing.

Of course I'd make changes to the system though. The lower class is heavily oppressed, so I'd fight for fairer wages and more health care plans for them. I'd be a nice ruler, I promise! There's also an ongoing war with Asia, and I'd strive for better diplomatic relations between the two nations and try to keep the peace. I'm Amity, that's just what I do.

I also included my Landry Park pinterest board where I envisioned what this life would look like!

  4. I'm a fan of the Falling Kingdoms series myself, but I've never heard of Landry Park until now! It seems lovely, especially since I adore Pride and Prejudice-esque books, and your championing of its world has my interest piqued :)

  7. OH my Landry Park and Jubilee Manor were so good. I remember when I was doing the blog tour and taking the pictures of the photoshoot but they were so good and totally unexpected. Hope I get to read the Falling Kingdoms series, series-ly. HAHA U SEE WHAT I DID THERE?
