Top Ten Tuesday June 12: Books that Awaken the Travel Bug in me

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Learn more about Top Ten Tuesday here! This week is Books that Awaken the Travel Bug in me. There was a kinda of similar topics a few weeks ago about books set in other countries, so I tried not to have too much overlap.



The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke – Venice

This was one of my favourite books growing up, and it’s the reason I want to go to Venice (even though I know some people who weren’t a fan of it).

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden – Japan

I’ve been so interested in Japan ever since I read this book. I think the culture is so fascinating, and I’d love to visit.

The Dragonkeeper series by Carole Wilkinson – China

Similar to the last one, China just sounds so interesting.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – Paris

I think we all want to go to Paris. I went went I was 13 with my mom, but I’d love to go back.

Angels and Demons by Dan Brown – Vatican City

I think Vatican City would so SO COOL to visit. Hopefully some day!

The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant – Boston

I’ve always wanted to go to Boston. It sounds like such a cool city.

The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen – a beachside town

Honestly any beachside town would work for me!

Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Coen – New York

Again, I think everyone wants to visit New York! I also went when I was much younger, and I’d love to visit again.

Divine Madness by Robert Muchamore – Australia

I actually lived in Australia for 6 months when I was 11, but I’d love to go back to all the cool places!

Dream Factory by Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler – Disney World

I would always like to go to Disney. I always find it crazy when people live in Florida or California and can just……go to Disney. Like, what?


That’s all for today! Any similarities?

Thanks for reading! Ally xx

  1. Contrary to popular belief, not all of us Floridians can always go to Disney 😦
    I live an hour away and the only thing that stops me from going all the time is that its honestly so expensive even for Florida residents lol.

    I would still recommend going at least once in your life though because not to sound cheesy but it is kind of magical.

    Great list! I wish I could travel more!

    1. Oh I know, it’s crazy expensive and Florida is a huge state! I was more talking about people who do. It just seems so weird to me that there are people who regularly go to Disney? Like imagine that kind of life?

      I’m lucky enough to have been a few times! I used to live a (relatively) short flight away, so my parents took us when we were kids! It was so much fun.

      Thank you!!

  2. Um. So I probably shouldn’t tell you that I’m in California and go to Disney a few times a year, right? I hope you get to go soon, it’s one of my favorite places to just soak up the atmosphere.

    The other places on your list sound great, too! Happy traveling! (Even if just in books…)

      1. It absolutely is! Though sometimes the stereotypes are funny. When I was in middle school my Girl Scout troop hosted some visiting Canadian Girl Guides, and they were so excited to come to California so they could see palm trees and convertibles everywhere. We were sorry to disappoint them…
