Top Ten Tuesday: Traveling Souls

hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: They go to Amsterdam, who doesn't want to go there?

Harry Potter (in particular The Goblet of Fire) by J.K. Rowling: Harry's first time to the Quidditch World Cup, that had to be an excellent experience. Travelling there and seeing everyone that is devoted to this sport that he has grown to love so much.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: Anna gets to go to a boarding school and France.  That would be a dream come true. (The only thing better, perhaps, would be a boarding school in England.)

Which brings me to: A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray: The world Gemma finds and how she travels there alone is worth the read.  It's fantastical and beautiful, a place I wish I could visit.

Alice's Adventure's In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: Wonderland is somewhere I've wanted to go since I saw the Disney animated film as a child.  Falling down the rabbit hole always seemed like it would be great fun.

I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak: Ed Kennedy makes his rounds talking to people he never thought he would.  I really like the use of travel in this book.

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle: Meg and company get to explore different worlds they've never heard of and meet a cast of characters along the way.

Divergent by Veronica Roth: The Dauntless only know one way to travel, by train, jump and maybe you'll be able to catch it as it goes by.

Legend by Marie Lu: The cat and mouse chase in this book takes us all over LA.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien:

  1. I've seen every HP book particularly listed on different blogs today. I listed HP as a whole because of all the different traveling that happens in different methods in each book! Its simply magical!
