Top Ten Tuesday: Travel Bug Books


                Hello everyone!  Top Ten Tuesday is just how it sounds, a topic is picked and we put our Top Ten for that in a post and share and check out everyone’s answers.  Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. 

The top ten today is:  Books that woke the travel bug!

Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling:  England-  I mean I want to go to Hogwarts too but if we are only talking real places I still want to go to London!



Cruel Summer by Alyson Noel:  Greece-  This book always made me want to visit.  Her vacation isn't as planned but I love the way the place is described (though maybe with better wifi access lol)


Blacksouls by Nicole Castroman:  Bahamas- So this is a pirate tale and the origin story of Blackbeard of course so yeah lots of island travels.  I went on my senior trip in high school to the Bahamas but that was a while back and it was limited I want to go back.


Succubus Blues Series by Richelle Mead:  Seattle-  So yeah I want to go to Washington.  I want to go with my bestie and hit Forks because it's on the bucket list and so many books/shows most recently for me this are there and I want to be part of it!


Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare:  California- So there are several places in Cali I want to visit but LA is for sure one of them.  I want to check out the super touristy things yes but I also want to go explore some of the many scenes from books I love from LA to San Francisco and more.  So much to work with here!


Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse:  Tokyo-  So yeah I hadn't had a ton of interest in traveling here before but this book made it seem like so much fun.


Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins:  Paris- Okay so this uber cute romance will make anyone want to go there and find love sure but I want to go and explore the city and see the sights…if I found a hottie along the way that'd just be a bonus ;)


The Holders by Julianna Scott:  Ireland- Okay one of my most desired places to go for so many reasons and the accent might be one of them.  The beauty of the land and the lore I just want to go immerse myself in it!


Wanderlove by Kristen Hubbard:  Central America- So while I love this book and respect the people who travel like this I want to do it in a more me fashion but still to see this area like this is amazing! 


Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley:  Australia- Again the accents….but seriously all the books/movies/shows/research shows I want to go here before I die.  Like maybe after some other places first because apparently everything can kill you and I'm kind of clumsy so not trying to push my luck.  Still it looks amazing!

               
                So what do you think?  Tell me what you think of my list in the comments below.  Also please link back to your Top Ten as well so I can check out your list and see what I missed!

  1. I went to LA back in 2010, and it was actually my least favourite of the places in California I went to, I can't really remember why, I think maybe I'd just been told how great it was and it didn't live up to the hype. Paris I LOVE, Seattle I remember really enjoying and Greece I went to last year and it was incredible.

  4. If Hogwarts was real, it would definitely be on my must-visit list. I would settle for a tour of HP movie settings though. Great picks!

  7. Of course, I'm a big fan of 'Anna.' Also, I didn't love 'Seven Days' story, but did think the setting was so vibrant and electric! Also, it's fun to see Nicole's 'Pirate' series on your list. I've been wanting to give those books a try for a while now. :)

    Thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland.
