Top Ten Tuesday: Books about Traveling

As I started to think about this topic, I realize that I don't read a lot of books about travel so this one is going to be small.

1) Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt- This was such a cute book and I loved that it was told in both perspectives. I hadn't read a roadtrip book before but it made me want to read more!

2) Eragon by Christopher Paolini- This is your typical fantasy quest book that invovled lots of travel over foreign lands but it gave me plenty of time to know the characters and we got to see loads of new places.

3) The Naming by Alison Croggon- This is another series where the main character has to leave home and venture to foreign lands to find herself and solve the riddle that is her life.

4) Fire Study by Maria V Snyder- While the first novel in this series was stationary, in this one poor Yelena is on the move and must journey to a city to solve a murder.

5) Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi- Perry and Aria must go through the dangerous world to get answers they seek.

6) Eve by Anna Carey- Set in a post apocalyptic world, Eve must cross through the barren wasteland to figure out a way to save her friends.

Making this list helped me realize that a lot of my traveling books are eiter dystopian or fantasy.

What made your list?


  1. Argh I didn't think of 'Fire Study'. Doesn't she also travel to the Fire world? Or Shadow world or something haha. I also completely forgot about 'Under the Never Sky'!

  2. Great list, my mind was totally blank on books with travel so I went with time travel instead and found it hard to stop at ten!

  3. I have read some of these and they are great. Others, like the Eve series, I own but haven't had time to read yet. These are some awesome choices!!
    BTW I am an old follower but I have recently left the blog I co-hosted to create my own independent blog! You should come check it out, please?? :)

  4. I have a few of these but I haven't read them all yet. I realized that I don't read a lot of books about travel either! I thought I would have but I guess I was wrong. Great list :)

Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
