Top Ten Tuesday: Travel



This is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. Links go to Goodreads. This week, the topic is:

Top Ten Books That Feature Travel in Some Way 

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

1. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith - I believe about half of this book takes place on a airplane, so it definitely qualifies.

 Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)

2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - I absolutely adored the way this author described the City of Love.

Paper Towns

3. Paper Towns by John Green - I read this a while ago, but I think there's a road trip in it at some point.

Survive

4. Survive by Alex Moral - This wasn't my favorite book in the world by any means, but the main characters spend a great deal of time wandering around the mountains.

Don't Breathe a Word

5. Don't Breathe A Word by Holly Cupala - Joy is forced to travel around a large city, homeless, after running away.

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)

6. Across the Universe by Beth Revis - Going across space for many years to find a second Earth-like planet? Yep, you're traveling.

Ashfall (Ashfall, #1)

7. Ashfall by Mike Mullin - The poor hero of this novel spends about 90% of his time hiking through torn-up land.

Water for Elephants

8. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen - It's about a circus and, as everyone knows, they tend to travel frequently.

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)

9. Blood Red Road by Moira Young - Saba moves heaven and earth while she's traveling to where her brother is being held.

Between Shades of Gray

10. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys - This instance of traveling is a very sad example.

  1. I actually haven't read any of these books, even if some of them are on my TBR - where they're cozying up to other books that are eagerly waiting for me to read them... And the ones that aren't on my TBR already will end up there today :)

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT post earlier. Happy reading, Becca :)

  3. Hope to read Between Shades of Gray this summer. Lots of people talking about this book. Shame so many confuse it with That Other Book.

    Here's my Top Ten post. Hope you'll stop by!

    1. It's probably my least favorite John Green book, but it's still worth checking out of course. :)

  5. I thought about putting Don't Breathe a Word on my list; I'm so happy to see it on yours! Have you read her other book Tell Me a Secret? SO GOOD! Great list, and thanks for stopping by!

    1. It really is! I preferred the author's other book, Out Of the Easy, but her debut is also amazing. Great historical fiction. You're welcome and thanks for coming by mine!

  9. The cover of Across the Universe is SO pretty!! And I need to read Paper Towns since it's one of the only John Green books I haven't read yet. I love that you put Anna, Statistical Prob, and Ashfall on your list just like me :)

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT

    1. Thank you! A Million Suns was a pretty good sequel, but I've yet to read Shades Of Earth (could the hideous cover have something to do with that? Lol).
