Top Ten Tuesday: Books Featuring Travel

I've decided to jump on board with Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is: Books Featuring Travel.

I don't really seem to have read many books about travel. Some of these are going to be a stretch!

1. Across the Universe by Beth Revis - space travel!

2. White Horse by Alex Adams - it's a post outbreak road trip... of sorts.

3. Mayday by Nelson DeMille and Thomas Block - it does take place on a plane.

4. Song of Kali by Dan Simmons - Simmons's debut and a phenomenally freaky horror story about a father whose son goes missing on a trip to Calcutta.

5. The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova - there's lots of travel in this one as the main character searches for her father and later hunts Dracula.

6. Dare I say it? The Song of Ice and Fire series!!! Yeah, I'm just having fun with this list because I realize I've got nothing 100% appropriate.

7. Except for Mark Henry's Road Trip of the Living Dead

8. Wired by Liz Maverick and Twist by Colby Hodge - two time travel reads from the sadly defunct Shomi line.

9. The Man From Primrose Lane by James Renner - more time travel.

10. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams - really needs no explanation.

I loved The Historian! Istanbul doesn't seem like a place I'd ever want to go, but that book made me want to! Great list!

The only book I've read on your list is Across the Universe, and I was SO close to adding that to my list.

I would definitely call my list a little eccentric :)

Great list! ASoIaF definitely has plenty of travel, LOL.

I've seen Across the Universe on lots of lists today.

I'd probably include Maureen Johnson's Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes if I were doing it this week.

I saw LITTLE BLUE ENVELOPES on a few lists, unfortunately I haven't read those yet. Just her Shades of London books so far.
