Recommended Reading

(This list will be updated continuously.)

The books listed here are a mix of adult and young adult fiction, classic literature, and nonfiction. They won’t necessarily be books you’ll find when you search “travel literature” because the books here are ones that I felt took me places – whether it was to a real life locale like the charming streets of Prague or the purely fictional island of Thisby, somewhere in the northern Atlantic. These stories painted scenes and people so vivid, I felt myself transported – if only for a time – within their pages.

Books are, after all, the easiest and cheapest way to travel.
