July 2015: Settings We Want To Go To

giphyThis time of year always puts me in mind of travel, even though I don’t think I personally have gone anywhere in July more exciting than the Maine coast (not that the Maine coast isn’t exciting). But there’s something about summer that says, “Okay, pack your bags, it’s time to go somewhere awesome.”

Luckily for those of us with less time or money to travel than we might like, armchair tourism is a thing. And that’s what we’re going to be posting about this month—books with settings so compelling and vivid that you find yourself planning to drop everything and head off to Ecuador, or Iceland, or Narnia. These are the books that immerse you in their worlds completely, convince you you’re there until you run out of pages, and leave you fighting the urge to buy plane tickets at 2am.
