Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s Top Ten List is 10 books that feature travel in some way. This is really going to be quite difficult for me to think of some but I’m sure looking around at other blogs will give me some inspiration to read more books that involve travel!
So here we go, in no particular order…
Saving June by Hannah Harrington- I read this book after reading Speechless. I really enjoyed the road trip Harper went on to California. It also included a lot of music, which I absolute love in a book!
One Moment, One Morning by Sarah Rayner- Okay, this one is very loosely based on travel, but it’s a heart-breaking story of an incident on a train that changes the lives of some individuals. It really made me feel so sad, but it was a great story!
Can You Keep A Secret? by Sophie Kinsella- Another one that briefly mentions travel. Emma spills her secrets to a stranger on a train that ends up being the company’s CEO.
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce- This is such a sweet book. The travel in this book is by foot. It’s a heart-warming story.
The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Phillip Sendker- I love this book! It’s about a girl who travels to Burma to learn more about her father that disappeared without a trace.
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S Lewis- I know this is a bit of a stretch, but it does involve travel to a different place. It’s such a magical story, it’s always been a favourite!
Chasing Daisy by Paige Toon- This is a good chick-lit read. It’s got a bit more depth than your average chick-lit. Some parts were incredibly sad!
Lucy in the Sky by Paige Toon- Another book that includes travel from Paige Toon. This is an easy read and nice and light. Just what I need sometimes!
The Very Thought Of You by Rosie Alison – This book is loosely based on travel too. It is about a young girl who is evacuated from London to Yorkshire. It has some interesting psychological observations.
The Lost Daughter- Diane Chamberlain- I really like Diane Chamberlain’s writing and this book was the first I had read of hers. It was about a young girl who made mistakes and ended up running away from her problems, creating a new life for herself.
Please feel free to share your links so I can see what is on your list this week! Not that I need to add to my TBR pile… but I swear I do every week!
