Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Travel Books

August 13, 2013 Top Ten Tuesday 23


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the awesome people at The Broke and Bookish, who love lists as much as I do!

Top Ten Favorite Books With X Setting (ie: futuristic world, set mostly in schools, during World War II, books set in California  etc. etc. So many possibilities!)

I had a hard time settling on a topic so I decided to do Top Ten Favorite Travel Books. I use the word travel fairly loosely.

      I’m not surprised that you haven’t read any these yet lol, but I really feel like you will like A Discovery of Witches!

    Ooo, I like how you have defined “travel.” I’ve read Hourglass (so much fun), Beauty Queens (hilarious!) and Anna and the French Kiss (adorable!) and loved them all. Great topic choice. :)

    This is a fantastic grouping. I’m a huge fan of travel novels too (even if you used the word loosely). One of my favorite blogs started a meme about YA books featured in different countries and even highlighted some lesser known ones (There was apparently a series called “Students across the seven seas.” One in Japan, one in Ireland, etc. So cool.)

    You really love Pivot Point. It seems to make almost every one of your lists :) :). Yes, yes, YES to the traveling in Shadow of Night because it was so well done and the research and all the details? I wasn’t a huge fan of all the details in Discovery of Witches (meh, not a huge wine person), but SoN? Yes! And the complexities that setting brought to Matthew’s character.

    A lot of people have said Everbound is one of the best sequels they’ve ever read for the traveling and the world that had to be built and developed about the Everneath and its complexities. I still need to read that one, though. And do have the original hardback cover for Across the Universe? Did you ever flip it around? It’s so fascinating to look at the map of the inside of the ship.

    Anna <3. Paris. Yes. Looking forward to returning to that setting in Isla :).

    Hourglass has become one of those books that I’ve heard so many good things about that for some reason I’m starting to doubt it is as good as everyone says it is. Weird…I know!
    I am glad that you made room for Ready Player One on your list. I wouldn’t have thought of it as a travel book at first but they do travel a lot in the book!
