Top Ten Books Featuring Travel In Some Way

toptentuesday

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

 

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!

 

7606431

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.

100915

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!

1032295

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!

6622006

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.

6282690

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!

  1. I’ve wanted to read Saving June for AGES! And you’ve also got the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe~ An amazing book, if I do say so, myself. I just wish my wardrobe could transport me to another world 😥

  2. Completely forgot that Harold Fry is still on my TBR. Must remember to read that.
    I’m very excited about The Art of Hearing Heartbeats. I recently traveled to Burma and loved it, and also have a Burma book on my list. It is an amazing country, and resilient is right.

    • Oh wow! I hope you enjoy The Art of Hearing Heartbeats. It must be a completely different reading experience when you’ve been to Burma. Harold Fry is a very touching read.

  3. Great list, although I must admit that I have only read two of them. I also wanted to say thank you because you included Saving June – when I was thinking about doing my own list and what to include I knew I’d read a book with a road trip in it, I just couldn’t remember what it was called and seeing Saving June on your list made everything click.

  4. LOL – I think I just found a bunch of summer reads! The Narnia books are the only ones I’ve even heard of that are on your list, but I love the sound of all your lighter reads. Great picks!

  5. Hooray for The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe! When I was little, I always wanted my closet to become a door to Narnia… and still do really.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT! 🙂

  6. *high fives* for Saving June! 🙂 I also like Can You Keep a Secret but it’s sort of my guilty pleasure. Narnia is an amazing series too! 🙂 Great picks. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  7. I have really been wanting to read The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harald Fry. And I’m so glad to see Narnia on your list! I’m reading those with my son right now, and we’re both loving them! Great list.

  8. Definitely The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe! Can’t think how I missed that one. The rest are all new to me, but there are several I will be checking out, including the Sophie Kinsela and The Very Thought of You. The book by Sarah Rayner looks really good, too, but I’m trying to stay away from heartbreaking at the moment!

    Thank you for stopping by my TTT list earlier!

  9. Thanks for checking out my TTT list! I love the Narnia books, I never would have thought to include them and the Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry looks really interesting, I’ll have to check it out. Great list!

  10. Great List! Saving June & Can you Keep a Secret were both on my list, but I hit my 10 before I got to them. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love seeing everyone’s take on the same prompt. Great job.

  11. Saving June has been on my TBR list forever… Now I’ve gotta get it! I love your list, so many good choices – many I haven’t read yet. 🙂

  12. I haven’t even heard of a lot of these! Except Narnia, of course – love that series, and definitely not a stretch – the Pevensies travel quite a bit! 😉

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT! 🙂

  13. Saving June is on so many lists for this TTT, now I really want to read it! The Art of Hearing Heartbeats – the beautiful cover and title are enough to make me add this to my TBR. Love that you included The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe! Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
