Wanderlust Book Tag

Another weekend is here! This Friday I’m doing another tag that I’ve not actually been tagged in. This is the Wanderlust book tag, and I came across it on Anne’s blog, MadameWriter. Let’s get straight in!

Secrets and Lies: A book set in a sleepy small town

The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett would probably count! It’s not necessarily a sleepy town that the girls are from, but it is pretty small.

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

I’m not sure if it entirely counts, but I’m going with Outline by Rachel Cusk. The main character visits a Greek island, and visits the beach/sea a lot.

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

I have to go with the iconic one and say Moby-Dick. The ultimate high sea voyage.

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

This is a tricky one! I guess Catching Fire kinda counts for having the jungle arena?

Frozen wastes: a book with a frost bitten atmosphere

I’ll go with Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman for this one! Seems appropriately frost-bitten.

The boonies: a book with rough or isolated terrain

I’m going with Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, because Manderley feels very isolated.

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

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with a western setting!!

Look lively: a book set across sweeping desert sands

OK, this is really tricky. Again, I don’t think I’ve really read anything that fits this.

Wild and untamed: a book set in the heart of the woods

The Clocks in this House All Tell Different Times by Xan Brooks has a fair few woodland scenes.

Wildest dreams: a whimsical book shrouded in magic

I guess The Secret Garden could count! There’s definitely a sense of magic.

I’m Tagging…

You! If you’re reading this, you’re tagged!
