What to Read: Wherever You Are
Most of this is purely a wish-fulfillment post, but why not do a little armchair travel daydreaming. Here's a fun list of what to read in a few places around the world.
Glasgow, Scotland: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
Eleanor Oliphant, an exceedingly lonely woman, works in the city centre of Glasgow, Scotland. This feel-good contemporary fiction will have you cheering for Eleanor as you sip your tea on Sauchiehall Street.
Alaska: Bone White by Ronald Malfi
You'll be sure to scare yourself silly with this horror book set in the tiny, creepy town of Dread's Hand, Alaska. A man goes on a quest to track down his twin brother, who went missing in the forest wilderness where superstitious rumors abound. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Tasmania, Australia: A Single Breath by Lucy Clarke
Tasmania is the setting for this women's fiction/romance. If you're lucky enough to find yourself in the stunning landscape of the most down under of down under, you could do worse than this gripping novel that features diving. Enjoy with a drink that Tasmania, aka The Apple Isle, is known for--alcoholic cider.
Gloucester, England: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
The beautiful medieval Gloucester Cathedral was the filming site for many interior shots of Hogwarts. While you're there, pop around the corner to see The House of the Tailor of Gloucester shop and museum, a gem for Beatrix Potter fans.
A Video Arcade: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
What better place to read this 80's video-game throwback than an old-school video arcade like 1-Up in Downtown Denver? Just be sure to bring some quarters.
