As hosted by The Broke & The Bookish
Hi guys! I’m back from my holiday and ready with a new Top Ten Tuesday! This week we got to choose our favorite books with x setting. And since I’m still a bit in travel-mode, I wanted to talk about some books that make me want to travel some more!
Now, these are not necessarily all travel-related books, but they are set in a location that I would love to go to. Some I’ve never been and some I have been, but reading the book makes me want to go there all over again!
So please, join me on my trip around the world with these books!
Makes me want to go to: Italy
Confession: I only bought this book so I could take it with me on my holiday to Italy. Then I started it, but I only read the first 20-ish pages. So I will finish it in Belgium, but I can already tell I will like it. It has Italy and gelato, what’s not to love?
Makes me want to go to: Italy, India and Indonesia
I read this one quite a few years ago (on holiday actually) and I remember that it really made me want to travel. Honestly, I don’t remember much else, except the Italian word “Attraversiamo”, which I now use whenever I can.
Makes me want to go to: Paris, San Francisco, New York City and Barcelona
These books are cute, light and fun and most of all, they make me want to travel. I’ve already been to Paris, but Anna and the French Kiss makes me want to rediscover it. And of course San Francisco, New York City and Barcelona are on my bucket list as well.
Makes me want to go to: Scotland
Honestly, I was never really all that interested in going to Scotland. But these books kind of sold it to me and now I want to see all the beauty Scotland has to offer.
Makes me want to go to: New York City
This sequel to the hauntingly beautiful If I Stay takes place in New York City and when the two main characters wander around in this city it kind of made me want to join them.
Makes me want to go to: Russia
Okay, okay, these are both fantasy novels set in a fantasy version of Russia. Actually, the Grisha trilogy takes place in a country inspired by Russia. And still… they both made me want to visit Russia. The real Russia. Wel, the fantasy version would be fun too.
Makes me want to go to: North Carolina
Pretty much every Nicholas Sparks novel is set in a small city somewhere on the coast of North Carolina and it has always sounded a bit magical to me. Based on these books, I could imagine myself living there, so I would really like to actually visit it and see for myself if it is as beautiful as these books make it out to be.
Makes me want to go to: Amsterdam
This book made me want to do only two things:
1) cry my little heart out
2) go to Amsterdam
Makes me want to go to: London
These books always make me want to go back to London and imagine I’m in the actual Wizarding World. Like, if I look into the sky, there’s a chance I might actually see Harry and Ron flying by in their little Ford Anglia.
Makes me want to go: on a roadtrip through the U.S. or Europe
Going on a roadtrip is something that’s definitely still on my bucket list. If I love going on them as much as I love reading about them, then I’m sure it will be wonderful!
