If you’re anything like me, you LOVE to travel, see new places. There are lots of ways to travel too: car, train, bus, plane… but, again, if you’re like me, extensive traveling is pretty much… unextensive. So I’ve come up with a new way of traveling… BY BOOK!
There have been many times that I’ve read a book set in a place I’ve never been and immediately felt like I was there. Who needs to ACTUALLY travel there when you’ve just experienced an incredibly journey?
For today’s Travel By Book we’re going to my #1 fantasy vacation destination Greece!
I don’t know what it is about Greece that’s called to me for several years now, but honestly… if given the chance, I would pack it up today and move there. The call is that strong! There are so many wonderful things that I’d love to experience there: the history, the scenery, the FOOD, the music, the culture… I want to drink it all up!
So if you’re like me and would love to travel to Greece, here’s your passport… via books!
The Goddess Hunt by Aimee Carter – This is a novella in the Goddess Test series, so it’s not a huge, in-depth visit to Greece, but our favorite Kate does go on a vacation to Greece during her 6 months away from Henry. And, shenanigans ensue.
Oh. My. Gods by Tera Lynn Childs – I haven’t read this one, but my little sister has and she LOVED it! When a teen finds out she’s descended from gods, she moves with her family to a small island on the Aegean to attend a school for kids such as herself!
Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan – These aren’t actually set IN Greece… but we do get to see some amazingly historical Greek myths come to life!
Cruel Summer – Alyson Noel – Haven’t read this one either, but the Goodreads summary sounds fab!
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants – This list simply wouldn’t be complete without this book on there!
Any favorite books set in the Greece? Let me know if you’ve read any so I can add to the list!
