Top 10 Tuesday: Places in Books I’d Love to Visit

Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about places in books I’d love to visit!

It was initially places I’d love to live, but I changed it to visit because, well, I’m a homebody and I don’t really want to move anywhere far away (not permanently at least). It was so difficult to choose for this one! There are so many book settings I’d love to visit for a short amount of time, and it was fun to reminisce on all of the great places books have helped me travel to. Without further ado, here are my top ten choices for places in books I’d love to visit (in no particular order)!

Maybe they include a play on words, maybe they evoke some sort of imagery, or maybe they’re just quirky and clever in some way. Regardless of the reason, these are my top ten most memorable book titles (in no particular order)!

Top 5 Saturday: Books with Fire on the Cover

Or maybe I just haven’t read many books with fiery covers! However, I did manage to scrape together a list of five books with some fire on the cover. So, in no particular order, here they are!

Book Review: “Maniac Magee” by Jerry Spinelli

I have conflicting feelings about this book, and it took me a while to decide how to rate and review it. Overall, I liked it! However, it wasn’t my favorite and I did have some issues with it. I will be keeping this one in my classroom library, but probably won’t be using it for any lessons or activities.
