Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s post is all about books that awaken the travel bug in me. Now, I did a post on travel locations books helped put on my travel bucketlist already earlier this year, so this time I wanted to get more specific and talk about books set in my current number one dream travel destination: Japan.
While I’m hoping of travelling to Japan myself some day, in the meantime I have these books to keep me dreaming!
This is one of my all-time favorite series and it is based on Japanese mythology which is amazing. Be prepared to fall in love with a kitsune.
While pitched as “Mulan retelling (set in Japan instead of China) meets 47 Ronin” this gorgeous fantasy is so, so much more than that.
Japanese mythology AND a reversal of the classic ‘normal kid discovers they are special’ trope.
Isn’t the cover already gorgeous?
A Cinderella retelling set in a Japan-inspired fantasy world.
Some Japan for the science-fiction lovers…
Some Japan for the horror lovers..
And some Japan for the contemporary romance lovers!
