Books That Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Happy Tuesday, Wormies! It’s been an awesome week in the reading front and I am excited to share the books that made me want to travel to these places. I guess it’s because the descriptions of these places are so vivid that I feel like I’m actually in that place. Books really take you to places you’ve never been!


Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely

Paris, France

Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely

This book made me feel like I was in Paris! The places Joy went were so off the beaten path that I felt like a local!


My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan

Oxford, United Kingdom

My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan

I love how vivid the descriptions of Oxford was! It made me feel like I was actually going to school at Oxford!


Roomies by Christina Lauren

New York, New York

Roomies by Christina Lauren

I’ve been to New York and this book totally captured the feel and the scene! I love the music/Broadway aspect of this book!


Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

Paris, France

Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren

This is another book set in Paris that also took me off the beaten path where tourists don’t really go! I also felt like I was there!


Denver, Colorado

The Marked Men Series & The Saints of Denver Series

I just finished binge reading these two series and I felt like I’ve been to Denver! These series make me want to visit Colorado!


What are your favorite books that take you to places because of the vivid descriptions?

    I loved the Marked/Saints books, and you can tell how much Crownover loves Denver by the way she writes about her city.

      I understand. Some books are just not for everyone. To be honest, my reread of Rule bumped my rating from a 3 to a 5 because of my mood when I reread it? Her books are definitely darker than most and sometimes this is just not for everyone.
