Top Ten Books to Read if You Want to Travel To . . .

Posted September 29, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Top Ten Tuesday / 59 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
his is such a hard topic this week. Give recommendations based on a popular author or book. Yup not doing that. I think it is so hard to compare books and authors. So I am going to give recommendations based on where you want to travel. Setting is one of my favorite parts of a book. You can go anywhere. So here are my top ten picks:

If you want to visit NYC

NYCTTTBefore We Were Strangers
Softer than Steel
Someday, Someday, Maybe

If you want to visit Alaska


Has to Be Love

If you want a tropical location


On the Island

If you want to visit  Paris


Anna and the French Kiss
Honeymoon in Paris

If you want to visit the island of Guernsey


The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society

What are some of your favorite books with amazing settings? Where do you want to travel to?

  1. I am also awful at comparisons, so I had someone help me this week. Grace, I absolutely love what you decided to do. Oh, and how you added the graphic of the location… I love it! I’m coming up blank for books with amazing settings. I know there is one coming out in 2016 (The Girl From Everywhere) that is set is Hawaii. I’m excited for that one!

  2. What a fun take on the topic! I want to visit all those places… in fact, I just visited NYC this summer after having read “The Devil in the White City” and it was fun to see some of the places mentioned in the book (it’s set in Chicago but one of the main characters designed Central Park and another pair designed the Flatiron Building). I’m surprised there are actually TWO books in the world set on Guernsey!

  3. I adore it so much when an author describes the setting so well that you feel like you’re transported there. I really did feel like I’m in Paris when I read Anna and the French Kiss. My recent reads took me to Australia, Mars, and Canada. Great selections, Grace! I’ll have to check out the ones I haven’t read yet. 🙂

  4. This is a genius twist hahah! I actually have only read Anna and the Potato Peel book, and I can say that Anna and the French Kiss is a GREAT portrayal of Paris. It was like I was ACTUALLY there when I was reading it (other than the international school). But that was my favorite aspect of the book 🙂

    Awesome list Grace!

  5. LOOOOVE this topic choice! Travel is so fun, and AH, I love when a book can make you feel like you’re somewhere else. The only one I’ve read is Has to Be Love. I am trying to think of some amazing settings, but I feel like all the cool places my books have taken me have been… less that desirable versions of fabulous places 😉 Sunken Paris, Hawaii during the apocalypse.. hahha

    Great recommendations! Very clever!
    I have a blog post started for Oregon books but I haven’t published it yet; someday.
    But I keep track of them on my Goodreads shelf. 🙂
