For the future Top Ten schedule and how to participate go HERE!
This week the topic is Top Ten Books Featuring Travel. Now I love to travel – near, far, long, short, new, old, somewhere I have never been or somewhere I know by heart. I love traveling almost as much as I love books! In fact, books and travel often go hand in hand for me as I love to read when I travel and I love to read about places I want to travel to! So here is what I have to share this week:
In Undressed, Lex spends a lot of time in Italy…now I want to go more than ever!
As a child, one of my all-time favorite books was Madeline. They live in Paris, possibly my favorite city in the World!
The Good Earth takes place in China, a wonderful place to visit.
In Riding Wild, they travel via Harley…definitely on my Bucket List!
One place I know I want to go is to Alaska, as seen in Marissa Dobson’s The Tiger’s Heart.
Another place that I love, any season of the year, is Colorado. Unmaking Hunter Kennedy largely takes place there.
Of course, I do love Texas and even though I live here, there are so many places to visit, especially ones with horses and cattle. It was the perfect place for the Butterfly Ranch in Gambling on a Secret.
The Other Boleyn Girl refers to Anne Bolelyn, one of the wives of King Henry the VIII of England. I missed a few things on my last trip…guess I need to go back!
The Australian Outback is the location of Taming in the Outback. That would be a fabulous place to visit along with New Zealand!
Yellowstone National Park is one of the most fascinating places on Earth and it is the locale for Yellowstone Heart Song. I cannot wait to go back!
So, what do you think? Where do YOU want to go?
Watch next week for Top Ten Beach Reads!
