Bout of Books

Hey everyone and welcome to my stop for the Bout of Books Road Trip Challenge!! I hope you all are enjoying your read-a-thon week and are getting closer to your goals! I love going on road trips or any kind of trip for that matter and I always bring a TON of books with me. For this challenge, I’d like for you to come up with a list of the top 4-5 states/places you’d love to visit and find a book (you either read or want to read) that takes place in that state/place or a book by an author who lives or is from there. :]

In case you are confused, here is an example:

My Book Road Trip

Paris: Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins (takes place in Paris and NY)
Washington: The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti (Deb Caletti lives in Seattle, Washington)
North Carolina: Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep (takes place in Asheville, NC)
Texas: The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings (Lindsay lives in Texas)
London: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (takes place in parallel Londons)

-Post your list in the comments between 12:00 AM (CST) and 11:59 PM (CST) TONIGHT
-You must be an official participant in Bout-of-Books
-Winner will have the chance to pick out any book of their choice up to $15.00 (as long as The Book Depository ships to you. If in the US, I will use Amazon, since I have prime shipping it will get to you sooner or if it’s a pre-order it will be there on the release date)
