Top 10 Books Featuring Travel In Some Way

One of my favorite things about books that feature travel is that I get to travel without having to go anywhere.  The only downside is that I’m not actually visiting the place I want to be in.  But books featuring travel will do when I need a quick fix.  Plus, I get to see places I wouldn’t be able to otherwise!

  1. Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.  Because Anna travels to Paris for school.  And who wouldn’t want to travel to Paris?
  2. In Honor by Jessi Kirby.  In Honor is a great road trip novel.  There’s something about traveling cross-country
  3. Wander Dust by Michelle Warren.  Time travel and traveling to foreign countries.  It’s a good combination.
  4. Every Soul A Star by Wendy Mass.  There’s not a lot of travel in Every Soul A Star, but two of the characters travel to this campground in the middle of nowhere to see a solar eclipse.
  5. The Probability Of Miracles by Wendy Wunder.  There’s nothing like a road trip to Promise, Maine to find a miracle.
  6. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling.  Deathly Hallows is the one with the most travel, since Harry, Ron and Hermione spend a good chunk of the book wandering through several forests.
  7. City Of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte.  Traveling to Prague would be totally awesome.  Toenail-induced time travel or not, the adventures Sarah has are pretty fun.
  8. The Things A Brother Knows by Dana Reinhardt.  The cool thing about The Things A Brother Knows is that it’s about 2 brothers who go on this really interesting walk.  They literally walk down to Washington D.C.
  9. That Time I Joined The Circus by J.J. Howard.  Who doesn’t love a traveling circus?  I loved that Lexi ran away to join the circus, and all so she could find her mother!
  10. The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares.  Why the traveling pants?  Because 4 friends are connected by a magical pair of pants that goes from girl to girl over the course of one summer.  Several of them do travel, but it’s a great story about friends who stay connected through one thing.

    • Deathly Hallows was one of the first books that came to mind! Granted, they spend a lot of the book in the forest, but…technically, they did travel. I just love Anna And The French Kiss!
