Top ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jana over at That Artsy Reader. This weeks prompt is Books that Awaken the Travel Bug In Me. Here are some books that make me want to travel to other worlds and places.
1. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis – The classic story of traveling to another land. Whenever I hear about the land beyond the wardrobe, I want to travel there!
2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor – This book was one of my favorite reads of 2017! The tale of Lazlo Strange traveling to the lost city of Weep was so enchanting it made me want to travel to the city myself.
3. A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab – The ability to travel across dimensions to different versions of the same city is such an interesting concept that would be amazing. Being an Antari would be amazing.
4. Under Different Stars by Amy A. Bartol – Kricket’s travels through a wormhole to an Alien planet that she is destined to save made the universe seem so much bigger and more attainable!
5. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare – Stumbling into an entire fantasy world while going to visit family sounds absolutely magical (although a more friendly entry into the Shadowhunter world than Tessa’s would be nice).
6. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater – The island of Thisby sounds like an amazing place for a vacation, and I would totally love to journey there to watch the Scorpio Races.
7. The Glass Swallow by Julia Golding – The world of this duology (Dragonfly is the first one) by Julia Golding is one that I stumbled into by accident and consequently could not put down. I love this fantasy world and it is one of the series that I’m constantly drawn back to. There is just so many places in the world to explore and I hope more books come out eventually.
8. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – This is the second book in the Six of Crows series, but more traveling occurs in this one that makes me want to travel all around the Grishaverse (from Ketterdam to Fjerda and back!).
9. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen – A more low-key traveling story, but Catherine’s adventure to the Abbey was so funny and enthralling that it made me want to travel to an abandoned building in the country.
10. Red Rising by Pierce Brown – All of the space travel that happens throughout this series makes me want to travel throughout the solar system! I’m still waiting for a moon base vacation to be available.
