Fictional World Travel

Fictional World Travel

This is the first challenge for the Bout of Books read-a-thon. It’s hosted by Between Library Shelves. Basically, you choose 3 to 6 books of places other than the country you currently live in to visit.

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien {Middle Earth}

Let’s be real. If this is not on your list, you are lying to yourself. Ent, wizards, elves. come on.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini {1970s Afghanistan}

This time period fascinates me. I think the stark comparison between the Afghanistan in the 70s and the Afghanistan of today would be cool to see.

Collected Novellas by Gabriel Garcia Marquez {Columbia}

Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ (GGM) ability to describe the setting of his works is amazing. I would love to do a GGM pilgrimage of his house and other parts of Colombia would be cool.

Boxers & Saints by Gene Luen Yang {China}

I’ve always wanted to go to China, so this one was a no brainer.

If you do decide to do the challenge, let me know in the comments below.
