Top Ten Books Featuring Travel In Some Way
Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour was the FIRST book that popped into my head when I saw what this TTT’s theme was. Because the entire book is a road trip! I love this book. It’s so entertaining yet heartfelt, and it’s one of my favorite books. Definitely recommend this to fans of road trips or books in general.
Anna and the French Kiss is one of my FAVORITE books of all time, so it’s definitely gotta be here. This book takes place in PARIS! Or as they say, Pah-ree. Yeah, whatever, I’m a dork, but go read this book! It’s cute, fun, and just plain awesome.
Meant to Be is probably one of the most adorable books we (Shirley and I) have ever read. The characters take a school trip to London (which I have always wanted to go to, sigh) and it’s so great that London is as big of a part of the book as the characters are. They visit so many places there that it made me want to visit London so bad!
Paper Towns. Just freaking hilarious. The road trip part takes place in the last third of the book, and that part by far is my absolute favorite. It’s hilarious (um, hello, a black dude wearing a Confederate t-shirt?) and just so freaking fun. The boys in the book are absolutely crazy on their road trip, and it made me love them so much.
Yes, of course I would put The Fault in Our Stars here! Hazel and
my love Augustus travel to Amsterdam, and their entire trip was just the sweetest thing. Although… it ended up turning bittersweet after, didn’t it…. But no matter! TFiOS is an absolute favorite, so it’s in my top ten!
I’m just putting Perfect Scoundrels here, but basically, the entire Heist Society series is full of travels. Kat and the gang end up going all over Europe, from England to Italy to France, and then going back to the US. All thanks to Hale and his private jet, of course. Oh, and can’t forget to mention Ally Carter’s other series, the Gallagher Girls series, that also features a lot of traveling!
Although not an absolute favorite, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was nice to read, and it also has another trip to London. It belongs here in my top ten though, because I think it’s just so adorable that she meets this wonderful guy at an airport and they end up on the same plane going to the same place!
The Edge of Never is insanely popular on Goodreads, and although I never loved it as much as many others, I really enjoyed reading the road trip aspect of the book. It starts off as a trip on a bus to anywhere, but then the characters take matters into their own hands and create their own fun road trip.
This is Cathy’s choice! In Carpe Diem, Vassar Spore’s life is turned upside down when her aunt forces her to on a quest through SE Asia where she has crazy adventures and falls in love with a cowboy!
Although I didn’t like the book, Shirley loved Don’t Stop Now.
I (Shirley) loved this book so so much! It’s obviously not everyone’s taste (as seen above -_-), but personally I thought it was a really fun read and I loved that it was contemporary too! Like okay come on. She’s going on a road trip to track down her missing friend with her best guy friend who she’s in love with. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THAT.
So here are our Top Ten! Let us know some of your favorite books featuring travels, road trips, etc!
