Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Books That Make Me Want to Take a Road Trip

 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is supposed to be Books Set In a Place I’d Love to Visit (real places or fictional).  I couldn’t think of any place that I haven’t shared books for already, so I decided to tweak the topic a bit.  I’m still focused on traveling, but this time it’s books that feature road trips – fun road trips, romantic road trips, angsty road trips, and even a dangerous road trip. There’s a little bit of everything here.

      I’m taking one to see my mom this weekend, but I’m really hoping for a bigger adventure at some point in the near future. I’ve been so stir crazy after not traveling at all for so long because of COVID.

    The road trip part of The Road Trip was so funny! I remember telling my husband about it, and how if it could go wrong on a road trip, it did! It reminded us of a road trip we took where the car we were in broke down on the side of the highway, and we had to walk a few miles to get to the nearest gas station to call for hope (this was before everyone had cell phones!).

    I love books with road trips. I don’t read nearly enough of them. One book I really enjoyed was Welch’s first one, so I really need to get to Love and Luck (and I guess the third one is greece so yay!).
