|Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish|
Everything from the cover of this book to its contents is just SO FREAKING CUTE. I'm pretty sure I would have loved it even if there was no travel aspect, but I loved it all the more for the trip to London!
2. Just One Day by Gayle Forman
How many lists do you think this book ended up on this week? Truth? I'm not even sorry. I read this book on my first trip to Paris this past March. I didn't finish it while I was there, but I think that's fitting because Allyson doesn't really finish her journey in Paris, does she? For her, it's just kind of the beginning. (My Review)
3. Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
I would say the majority of this book took place on an airplane. When I read the summary and realized that would be the case, I was a little hesitant but I totally loved it in the end! Such a sad, angst book that's somehow cute and meaningful and amazing all at once. (My Review)
4. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Okay, this book doesn't revolve around travel as much as the others I've already listed, but Taylor and Jonah DO go on trains and road trips together and as such I would like to add this one to my list. Because I love this book so much and I want to continue finding clever ways to push it on all of you. (My Review)
5. The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
This one's also a little bit of a stretch since it's not so much travel as it is running? Or maybe it is travel. Either way this book is made of amazing. I promise the only reason it's not a 5 star book for me is because of the open ending. JUST GIVE ME A SEQUEL, SANGU MANDANNA. JUST A LITTLE SEQUEL. (My Review)
I loved, loved, loved this book when I read it a few months back. And it's got this epic journey during which GREAT THINGS HAPPEN and Dylan and Tristan and kissing and uuuuuuggggh. Yeah. It's a kissing journey book - AKA one of my favorite things ever. Oh. ALSO, Dylan starts the book on a train. So: LESS CHEATING! (My Review)
7. Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo
There's a lot of traveling/running away in this one! Totally! Yeah! I'm not even pushing the limits here by throwing this one on my list! QUESTION ME NOT, FRIENDS. (My Review)
8. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Katsa and Po do all kinds of EPIC QUESTING in this book, so I think this fits in my modified Top Ten Tuesday Topic. I just love it. So much. I love it, I love Katsa, I love Po, I love Katsa and Po... I just can't help myself. (My Review)
9. Old Magic by Marianne Curley
This book's summary doesn't make the travel/questing quite so obvious but it's THERE and it's ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Every time I think of this book for a TTT list (which I do every now and again), I remember how much I REALLY MUST RE-READ. Soon, pretty book. Soon.
PS: The cover art on this one's the same image as the Australian edition of Where She Went by Gayle Forman just with their faces closer together on Where She Went. Sorry. That's been on my mind for a while and this felt like a good time to mention it. Probably because I LOVE BOTH BOOKS.
10. Under the Never Sky/Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
Talk about journeys! Perry, Aria and Roar all do a whole lot of traveling throughout the course of these books and I love every single second of it, even if a lot of said seconds are truly heartbreaking. (My Review of Under the Never Sky)
So that's my slightly cheating list. But, well, I DO modify these lists every now and again, don't I? Do you guys have any airplane/bus/car/train travel books that do it for you? How about quest books? Tell me all about it in the comments below!
