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
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.
2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - I absolutely adored the way this author described the City of Love.
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.
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.
5. Don't Breathe A Word by Holly Cupala - Joy is forced to travel around a large city, homeless, after running away.
6. Across the Universe by Beth Revis - Going across space for many years to find a second Earth-like planet? Yep, you're traveling.
7. Ashfall by Mike Mullin - The poor hero of this novel spends about 90% of his time hiking through torn-up land.
8. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen - It's about a circus and, as everyone knows, they tend to travel frequently.
9. Blood Red Road by Moira Young - Saba moves heaven and earth while she's traveling to where her brother is being held.
10. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys - This instance of traveling is a very sad example.
