Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Wake Up the Travel Bug In Me

Posted June 12, 2018 by meezcarrie in Christian, Top Ten Tuesday / 18 Comments

Happy Tuesday, friends! I love today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from ThatArtsyReaderGirl because I have always loved traveling. Due to poor health (and poor finances) I don’t get to travel much anymore … except through the pages of books! The following reads have woken up that sleeping travel bug in me on more than one occasion and made me eager (if circumstances were different) to break out the suitcase and plan a trip!

Clicking on the covers will take you either to my review of the book or its Amazon page, using my affiliate link.






What about you? What are some books that make you want to pack a bag and head out on a great adventure?

    Love this! Thanks Carrie. I have several of these on my TBR pile. Can’t wait! I love to travel 🙂

    I have a few of these on my list today as well. I actually just purchased Here is Where and am looking forward to reading it.

    Books about Macinac Island! 🙂 And books about Alaska, and Hawaii, and Maine…and, Switzerland…sigh…so many books to read, and so many places to see!

    I am with you on going to Yosemite. After reading Karen’s book, I started a Yosemite Pinerest board. The same thing happened after I read “Five Days in Skye”. . . . . I never knew such a beautiful place existed. (I don’t get out much either 🙂

      Lol! But we do on the pages of a book 🙂 I love the Pinterest board idea! May I borrow it?

    You picked some good ones, Carrie! They make me want to travel, too. Five Days in Skye, The Red Door Inn, Where the Fire Falls. I’m looking forward to Karen Barnett’s next book set in Yellowstone (my stomping grounds!)

  6. What a great selection of books! I’m sorry you don’t get to travel as much as you’d like due to health and financial reasons. Hopefully one day, somehow, something will remedy that. Until then, three cheers for literature!
