Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books Featuring Travel In Some Way

In no particular order...
  1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman - Travelling around the US in search of other Gods? Okay, sounds good, where do I sign up? I honestly think this is the perfect road trip book. 
  2. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut - I think this book is kind of ridiculous and that's why I love it so. Also, time travelling counts, right?
  3. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams - I honestly think this book is just going to be on every list I make because it has so many elements of everything. Can you tell it's a favourite of mine? Yeah, probably.
  4. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carol - Okay, yeah, the entire story is kind of an acid trip but hey! I relate travelling to adventure, and this is one hell of an adventure.
  5. Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie - It's obvious to me that some of the best travelling happens in classic children's stories. Peter Pan is one of my favourites for it has a little bit of everything and I love it!
I know no one minds, but I could only think of five. I'm quite content with this list and my only regret right now is not having enough coffee to go into more detail.

  1. The Hitchhiker's Guide! What a fun book. I've read it a few times and I loved the movie, although I know it had mixed reviews.

    1. So much fun! Definitely a fave. I'm kind of impartial about the movie - I didn't like it, but I didn't dislike it either...

  5. Oooh, love the list -- American Gods and Hitchiker's Guide are perfect obvious ones -- never would have considered Alice in Wonderland a 'travel' book, but you're so right!! That's a v good addition.

    1. Thank ya! I thought pretty hard about the list and I felt that in a sense, Alice in Wonderland was very fitting in terms of travelling!
