Book Tag | The Wanderlust Book Tag

Another Sunday, another book tag

Since we’re all still stuck inside, what better time to virtually (or at least mentally) travel with books! The settings in some books can elevate the whole story and become a character itself. They can be wonderful forms of escapism and reflect all types of places to convey a spectrum of emotions and I just love it! I found this tag over at @NoReadsTooGreat and figures what better time.


  1. Mention the creator of the tag and link back to original post [Alexandra @ Reading by Starlight]
  2. Thank the blogger who tagged you
  3. Answer the 10 questions below using any genre
  4. Tag 5+ friends

1.  Secrets and lies: a book set in a sleepy small town

As You Wish by Chelsea Sedotti

As You Wish

Madison is such an interesting town; it’s isolated in the middle of the Mojave Desert, but it’s got a magical quality to it too that makes it really special. I know this was a divisive book, but I loved it.

2. Salt and sand: a book with a beach-side community

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

The Unhoneymooners

What could be more beachy than a honeymoon is Hawaii?

3. Here there be dragons: a book with a voyage on the high seas

The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere, #1)

Not only does Nix travel all over the sea, but she gets to do it through different time periods too.

4. Tread lightly: a book set down a murky river or a jungle

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)

Trying to think of a book with a jungle setting was super hard, and all I could think of was that segment of the area where everyone’s attacked by monkeys.

5. Frozen wastes: a book with a frost bitten atmosphere

The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

The Crown's Game (The Crown's Game, #1)

I have a vivid memory of a frozen river and ice skating. I don’t remember if it’s accurate, but I definitely associate this book with a cold setting.

6. The boonies: a book with ruff or isolated terrain 

Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch

Love & Luck (Love & Gelato, #2)

This is ruff in a more abstract way – the main character is sneaking across Ireland with her brother and his friend to a music festival all while trying to avoid running into their parents and get over a broken heart.

7. Hinterlands and cowboys: a book with a western-esque setting

No Saints in Kansas by Amy Brashear

No Saints in Kansas

This gives off  real desolate mid-western vibes in a reimagining of Capote’s In Cold Blood.

8. Look lively: a book set across sweeping desert sands

The Never-Tilting World by Rin Chupeco

The Never Tilting World (The Never Tilting World, #1)

Half this world is a Mad Max-like desert that is intense and dangerous.

9. Wild and untamed: a book set the the heart of the woods

Well Met by Jen DeLuca

Well Met (Well Met, #1)

What else could you want than a Renaissance Faire  in a forest?

10. Wildest dreams: a whimsical book shrouded in magic

The Secret of a Heart Note by Stacey Lee

The Secret of a Heart Note

The lushness of the gardens that Mim works in were amazing and screamed Srping.

If you could teleport to any bookish location to escape quarantine, where would you choose?  Share below!

    Awww thanks so much for participating in my tag, Danielle! ❤ I loved reading your answers – you actually reminded me that I need to hurry up and read The Girl From Everywhere. It's been sitting on my shelf for YEARS and I never seem to get around to it. As you do!
