Wanderlust Book Tag!


I found this fun book tag/challenge at Hammock of Books

I followed the link to Reading by Starlight who originated the tag. She wrote this introduction:

“So, in celebration of immersive settings that transport us to alternative realities I decided to create my very first tag – The Wanderlust Book Tag. And, you guessed it – it’s all about dense world-building and atmospheric settings. So, let’s get this tag started…” (Reading By Starlight)


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

My Thoughts

I could easily have done an entire post’s worth of books for most of these topics! I tried not to use my usual go-to titles, but it was hard. There are certain books that immediately spring to mind for most topics after all my years of book blogging. I even debated both a fiction and a nonfiction entry!

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


Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler

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


The Shipping News by Annie Proulx


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


The Ocean Liner by Marius Gabriel


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


The Lower River: A Novel by Paul Theroux


5. Frozen wastes: a book with a frostbitten atmosphere



The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey


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


The Dry: A Novel by Jane Harper


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


Half Broke Horses by  Jeannette Walls

Sorry, I got my fill of Westerns and cowboys in childhood.


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


Girls of Riyadh: A Novel by Rajaa Alsanea


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


Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

10. Wildest dreams: a whimsical book shrouded in magic



Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
