I'm doing this week's Top Ten in order to challenge myself. Before compiling this list, I didn't think I read a lot of books that involve travelling and I was right. It's not something I've ever looked for specifically. After looking at the books I've read, I'm going to tweak this list a little. I'm going to make this a bit more about "journeys" than about "travel", though they will still be a type of physical journey. Here are my Top Ten Books Featuring Travel In Some Way, in no particular order:
1. Canada, by Richard Ford - Going from a town in Montana to the middle-of-nowhere Saskatchewan can be quite interesting.
2. Shopaholic Takes Manhattan, by Sophie Kinsella - Becky is excited to go to Manhattan and manages to bring all her London problems with her.
3. Prodigy, by Marie Lu - Traveling through dystopic America, an interesting contrast between two sides/extremes of the country.
4. Fever, by Lauren DeStefano - Another pair traveling through a different dystopic America, one that's really unsettling and possibly even more dangerous.
5. The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis - Takes us through Narnia. I'd love to visit.
6. World War Z, by Max Brooks - We travel around the world, post-Zombie War, aka World War Z.
7. Life of Pi, by Yann Martel - If you count floating around in the ocean as travel.
8. The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien - They certainly travel far and there's a lot of walking.
9. The Dark Tower Series, by Stephen King - The Ka-Tet travels farther than any other in Mid-World.
10. The Time Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger - TIME Travel.
What books have you read about travel? Do you have any recommendations for me?
