Thanks to the gals of The Broke and The Bookish for hosting this meme every week!
So the topic this week is actually books to do with travel in some way, but I read so much fantasy that quest books are the best “travel” related topic I got ;-). Some of these might be a bit of a stretch too, hehe.
Traveling In Awesome Ways
One of the best parts of sci-fi and fantasy stories are that there are so many travel options that aren’t available in our world! Through the Door has magical doors that can take you anywhere, Persistence of Vision and Tournament of Chance have time-travel, and The Lost Hero and Stormdancer have riding magical beasts :D (definitely my favorite way of travel!).
Good Ol’ Fashion Walking Travel
There is also of course a lot of walking when you have an important quest and no other form of transportation. Sometimes you can find a horse to do the walking for you of course :D.
Have you read any good quest books lately? There is just something so epic about journeying to a new land for an inevitably noble goal, right??
