Book Traveling Thursdays // A Soon-To-Be Classic

 

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This week, the theme is our favorite cozy reads for the start of fall.

This week I chose Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. This book is a scary dystopian story that starts off a trilogy.

While Atwood is probably going to go down in the speculative fiction canon for works like The Handmaid’s Tale, I feel like Oryx and Crake will be a significant piece in how humans consume technology, and should be part of the classic canon.

Now, onto the covers!

Book Traveling Thursdays // A Book About Food, Eating, or Cooking

This week we are looking at books themed around food. Eating food, cooking, baking, any activity that involves food.

For this week, I chose Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal. It’s a novel I’ve been raving about with some questionable covers and a very misleading title. It’s the life story of a chef as she slowly becomes the founder of the most famous pop-up supper club.

This week we’re celebrating back to school with books that take place in high school or college. I haven’t read many books that take place in a high school as of late, but I did recently pick up Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.

This impulse purchase ended up being a great light read that fit this prompt perfectly. I am glad I read it. It even inspired me to style an outfit based on Eleanor.

Book Traveling Thursdays // A Book That Inspires Your Wanderlust

10. WanderlustBook Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

Happy Thursday! We’re almost to the weekend and this week on Book Traveling Thursdays, we are looking at books that inspire our wanderlust!

My pick this week is In the Bag by Kate Klise. This book is best described as You’ve Got Mail meets The Parent Trap in the 21st century. It is a story of globe-hoping, lost luggage, and found opportunities told through the perspective of two parents and their two teenage children.

I loved the relationships in this book. It is a great light read that was still inspiring and dealt with one of my worst nightmares: lost luggage. Of course, in this case, everything turns out for the best.

Actually, now that I think about it, it may be time to reread this book!

Now, onto the covers!

This week we are celebrating National Book Lover’s Day with books that we think every book lover should read.

Who wouldn’t love to travel between the pages of their favorite books?

Now let’s have a look at the international covers of this book.

Book Traveling Thursdays // A Lazy Day Read

7. Lazy Day ReadBook Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world

This week, we are getting ready for the beach and looking at books that we would like to read during a lazy day at home.

I have a hard time choosing “beach reads” because I always want to pick something that is very cerebral and requires thought.

However, for this one I am choosing a book that has been on my TBR pile forever. That is The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender. Continue reading

Book Traveling Thursdays // A Book Featuring Friendship

6. Book Featuring Friendship

Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world

This week we are featuring books that feature friendship in honor of the International Day of Friendship on July 30th!

For this week I chose a book that features sisters as friends. The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown is about three sisters. The best way to describe the relationship between the three sisters in this book is the pull-out quote on the front cover.

You see, we love each other, we just don’t happen to like each other very much.

To me this quote symbolized what a really deep friendship should try to be.  I have more thoughts about the book itself, but since I reviewed it earlier this month I will let me review explain the unique relationship these sisters have with each other.

Now, onto the covers!

5. Book Involving MusicBook Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This week we are taking a look at books that are connected to music. I chose Gayle Forman’s beautifully haunting novel  If I Stay.

A large part of this story is Mia’s life as a cellist, and how she connects to the world through music, despite her parents and boyfriend appreciating very different styles.

Now, onto the covers!
