Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Make Me Wanna Flyyyy Awwwaaaayyyyyy!!!

Travel?!? Travel?? You mean leave the house?? Books that make me want to leave the house?? Oh no…. this might be hard…

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today’s prompt is: Books that make you want to travel.

I feel like this topic is much more relevant to contemporary books than it is for the fantasy books that I devour on a daily basis….

BUT! Because it doesn’t specify that it HAS to be contemporary, I’m just gonna list books that have made me want to travel recently (as in from my reads so far this year) …. it may not necessarily be to anywhere in particular….. maybe I just want to fly?? (did….did you see the Lenny Kravitz reference in the title? I ….I made a joke….. about travel… flying…. yeah….. byyyyyyyeeeeeee)

ANYWHOOOOO, I know it’s Top TEN Tuesday but I could only find 3 that genuinely fit this topic for me.

Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

SPAAAAAAAACE…. I know that the travel and what not isn’t the whole plot (but it is a reoccurring issue I suppose with the jump ports and stuff) but….. I wanna go to space. I wanna travel through space.

I am also really want to know if when you go at super sonic speed, or thorugh jump ports, does your face do the thing. Where your face just kinda stretches out??

Like this???

I mean… realistically it probably doesn’t happen because the space ship is probably built to prevent that kinda thing….. but it would be….. funny as heck.

Basically never has a book (the entire series really) made me want to go to space more! Or live on a different planet! Or visit other planets! WOOO NEW FRIENDS WHO WON’T HAVE ANY IDEA HOW AWKWARD I AM!! WOOOOOOO!

You know who this guy is… He was literally my favourite character in the entirety of the Lego Movie. SPACESHIP! SPACESHIP!

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

Hehe. I want to travel and explore all of Prythian. I want to see all the Courts and the land and basically everything. Even the Illyrian Mountains. Snow and mountains is an instant win to me.

But more than that, I want to winnow. Like, it’s described as a pocket of blackness  kinda thing. I was picturing there being stars and what not and it sounds freaking amazing. I would just winnow but then never reappear tbh.

Flying with the Illyrians would be friggin’ epic too though. Not as cool as walking through pockets of the universe, but I feel like being in the air and just going somewhere, anywhere. I feel like that, up in the sky, would be the place of ultimate peace.

More than anything though I want to see the courts, they all sound so different and all so beautiful in their own ways and I just !!!!, take me there please and thank you.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

Now that I think back at it I actually really loved this book and I have the sudden urge to re-read it….

The first half of this book (I wanna say half but it could be less) gave me road trip vibes. Mind you I have never been on a road trip… and this book includes a road trip…. with a vampire… a polite, gentlemanly vampire at that. Gavriel was such a dear.

And when reading it, I kinda wanted to go on a road trip. This book genuinely made me want to leave my house… I was surprised.

Now that I think back on this book though, there were so many aspects of it that were refreshing. So many things that I loved.

I highly recommend it to you guys! As far as Vampire books go, I think this one has to be one of the best. (Again, I haven’t read many vampire books….. but the few I have read… this one was the best….. easily)

What books make you want to travel? Are there any particular forms of travel that you want to try? Do you agree with some of the books on my list?

    1. ACOTAR is a series that I would heavily consider marrying XD
      I haven’t read any of his singular books, Illuminae was the first series that I have read of his and that was with Amie Kaufman. But I am looking forward to reading some of his other works!

        1. It was really good! I personally loved it, it’s definitely in my top 5 books this year!
          I’ll admit though, the format took a little getting used to. But when you’re through that it flies by far to quickly ; _ ;

  1. Ooh this makes me want to reread The Coldest Girl in Coldtown because it’s been absolutely YEARS and I remember nothing except I loved it a lot.😂And Gavriel was amazing haha. And yes Illuminae was so awesome omg…although I can’t decide if space travel would be awesome or totally freak me out.😂

    1. Gavriel was great! Easily my favourite character in the book!
      I think it would be a combination of both? Maybe freaking out because it’s awesome? Or it being awesome then freaking out because where the HECK IS THE FLOOR?!?!?!? SPACE IS JUST SITTING ON SPACE!!!!


    1. Me too!!! I’m hoping that while we all dream that these world exists, the universe is laughing because they probably do in a parallel universe. All we have to do is find a rip in the fabric of space and time and BOOM! We have reached out destination.

      Orrrrrr, we could create that rip in space and time ourselves instead of searching every inch of the Earth XD
      Knowing our luck it would be at the bottom of the Mariana Trench or something ; _ ;

    1. Right?!?!? I don’t know if it’s the whole leaving Earth and going to see something more or if I just want to spend years reading books and looking at stars.

  2. Gret post! I loved Illuminae! And outer space would definitely be an adventure. And I’ve really been wanting to read some more of Holly Black’s books after The Cruel Prince. I’ve debating whether to pick up The Coldest Girl in Coldtown and The Darkest Part of the Forest.

    1. Thank You :3
      I friggin’ adored Illuminae! There’s so much to love about it!
      Coldest girl is the only book of hers I have read, but I plan to read The Darkest Part of the Forest before I read The Cruel Prince. Partially because Darkest Part was released first and it would make me feel happy (don’t even know why but it would??) and because I have heard that it was super amazing and people are dying all over the place because they need the next book. So, I’m going to try to hold off for as long as I can until the sequel comes out XD

      1. The Cruel Prince was so good! The sequel can’t come soon enough! You’re probably right to hold off until closer to its release because after that ending there was nothing more I wanted than to dive into book two. I really hope you like it once you do decide to read it!

        1. Aaaaah I can’t wait! I’m currently frantically trying to distract myself with other books XD I really hope I love it, I have a pretty strong feeling that I will!
