Feature and Follow (1)

This Weeks Question:

Armchair Travel! Tell us about your favorite book in a setting you’d like to visit (a real place for this question).

Christina's Answer: I adore Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. For the past couple of years around spring break I find myself being pulled towards it inexplicably despite not being a fan of contemporaries. This novel really paints a picture of what it’s like to be a foreigner in France: the struggle of not speaking the language, the beauty of the landmarks, the difference in the culture. I love experiencing Paris through the pages of this book.

Sarah's Answer: Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter is one of my favorite books right now. I have read it four times in a four month period, something I NEVER do. One of the cool things about it is that the main character travels to Rome and Ireland. Two places I would very much like to see for their natural beauty, architecture and history. The character doesn’t spend much time there but the book makes it real easy to imagine the setting.


  1. Paris, Rome, and Ireland are all on my list of places I want to visit before I die. I love the culture and feel of all of these places and I hope I get to see them one day.

  8. Paris is quite a popular answer this week! Rome is a beautiful city, which I think I prefer to Paris, simple because there is an old building around every corner and I love how visible the history is! I'm a new GFC follower! Thanks for sharing :) Enjoy your weekend!

  9. It would be so incredibly awesome to visit Paris or Rome. I chose England as my choice because I'm a big harry potter fan. I'm a new follower. :)

  11. That sounds wonderful! I think it would be great to travel anywhere. I keep a list of all the really cool places, cities, tourist attractions, etc. when I read so that when I retire someday, I can travel and see them all. Wishful thinking!
