Where should my next book take me?

I haven't been on a trip since I went home for Christmas, and I'm getting the travel itch! I picked out a few books with exciting destinations and I want you to tell me where I should go!


Should I go to the sun-kissed beaches of Cancun, Mexico and into mysterious Mayan ruins where ancient myths flirt dangerously with present realities? If so, vote for Feathered by Laura Kasischke.



Should I go on a road trip across the USA with my fictional ex-boyfriend Jordan? If so, vote for Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt.




Should I go to Israel with my fictional estranged father? If so, vote for How to Ruin My Summer Vacation by Simone Elkeles.



Should I go to London and do everything my fictional aunt instructs me to do in 13 Little Blue Envelopes? If so, vote for the book by Maureen Johnson.





Or should I go Elsewhere?

I guarantee that sometime in March I'll read and review the book that gets the most votes!

I just read How to Ruin a Summer Vacation and I wasn't all that impressed by it. The main girl was unbelievably annoying.

Elsewhere was quite good and I'm looking forward to 13 Little Blue Envelopes.

Alea said...

Nice idea Lenore! I think you should go to London via 13 Little Blue Envelopes!

avisannschild said...

I second what Alea said!

Karen Mahoney said...

Voting for 13 Little Blue Envelopes, too. But that's because I'm biased. Twice! ;) I love Maureen Johnson and I'm from London.

13 Little Blue Envelopes. That is such a good idea :)

Senfaye said...

I think you should read 13 little blue envelopes!
- Senfaye :)

13 Little Blue Envelopes! I've heard amazing things about it. One of my author friends was inspired to write her own book after reading it. Go for it!

Daniel said...

you should read feathered because the mayan ruins in mexico are great. and i like that cover the best.

Erika Lynn said...

I vote London with 13 Little Blue Envelopes. That book looks great!

Serena said...

I think you should go elsewhere!

My second vote would be Feathered to the Mayan Ruins!

This is a great idea.

Marie Hansen said...

I liked Feathered, but you should read 13 Little Blue Envelopes for sure!

Nymeth said...

I vote Feathered! I hadn't heard of it before and it sounds just like my kind of thing.

PJ Hoover said...

Elsewhere!

Amber said...

I vote for Two Way Street! I really want to read that book myself.

Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes is a great book - I have read it twice!

The Book Gobbler said...

Of definitely go to London and do everything your fictional aunt instructs you to do a la 13 Little Blue Envelopes!

BookChic said...

I would say either 13 Little Blue Envelopes or Two Way Street. Although Feathered looks very good too...

bermudaonion said...

I vote for Elsewhere.

Dar said...

I'm voting for 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I'd love to know what you think of it.

Beth Kephart said...

Id go to Cancun. I always like to see how such stories get played out.

Steph Su said...

13 Little Blue Envelopes has withstood the test of time and remains one of my favorite books ever. Every time I reread it I have to read it through all at once. It's that good. Go there! :)

allisonmariecat said...

Oh, how fun!

I vote Cancun...sounds lovely. And a great cover.

I must say, though, that Elsewhere was fantastic (the only one in this group I've read).

Lana said...

Feathered! Sun and Mayan ruins sound like a brilliant vacation to me.

Amy said...

feathered looks really interedting...

Dorte H said...

I vote for feathered - the environment sounds really exotic and the Mayan culture should be quite exciting I believe.

Melissa said...

I vote for Two Way Street.

I just finished 13 Little Blue Envelopes and it was good. I loved Elsewhere!

Red lady-Bonnie said...

My vote is for 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I love the idea of following clues in envelopes. I'm adding that book to my wish list!
Happy Travelling!!

Emily said...

I haven't read any of these, but I vote Two Way Street - yay road trips!

Molly said...

Well, I am partial to London, so I would vote for 13 Little Blue Envelopes. However, I never thought of viewing books as vacation destinations. What a marvelous idea! I will need to use this criteria the next time I am trying to decide which book to read.

Kelsey said...

Go Elsewhere...you never know where you're going! Don't you love surprises?

Steph said...

TWO WAY STREET FTW.

I wanna read that one, so you need to tell me how it is.

Ruth @ Bookish Ruth said...

I vote for Feathered - Cancun and Mayan ruins sounds like an exciting vacation destination.

Joanne said...

Nice choices, I would vote for either Elsewhere or 13 Little Blue Envelopes - I loved both of these books.

Shalonda said...

My vote is also for 13 Little Blue Envelopes! I still haven't read it either, but want too.

H said...

Oh, Two Way Street! A road trip with an ex-boyfriend!? Why would anyone agree to such a thing? Now I must know more... :)

Bookworm said...

Hmm.....Elsewhere was great, but I'd choose 2 Way Street or how to ruin a summer vacay...they look more uplifting. Elsewhere was a bit heavy.

Mrs. Magoo said...

I vote for Elsewhere!

Linda J said...

I vote for 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I also have that book. If it wins, I'll read it in March too!

tanabata said...

I vote for Feathered. You had me at "mysterious Mayan ruins" and "ancient myths". Plus it does have a lovely cover.

AmandaSue said...

I vote for Elsewhere or 13 little blue envelopes! I've read both and really enjoyed them!

Carrie said...

Elsewhere most definitely. I love that book.

wrigleyfield said...

I'll vote Feathered. Although, I just bought 13 Little Blue Envelopes and am looking forward to it.

Elsewhere was one of those books that I'm glad I read, yet have no desire to ever read again.

Ladytink_534 said...

Love the cover of Feathered but I have to admit that I'm intrigued about Two Way Street so I'll have to vote for that one. 13 Little Blue Envelopes is actually on my want to read list already though....

Mishel said...

I haven't read any of these I'm afraid. But by destination only...why not go elsewhere? (=

Meredith said...

I have read each of these books, except for Two Way Street. And I think that my favorite of them all is Elsewhere.

Amelia said...

two way street. its amazing. I actually didn't like 13 little blue envelopes that much. don't know why.

Readingjunky said...

Definitely, go ELSEWHERE. It's a truly awesome book.

Meg89 said...

Elsewhere looks interesting, so it has my vote!

Jessica Kennedy said...

I vote for Elsewhere! I really want to read it but it's not available for the Kindle and I'm holding out for it!

I've read Two-way Street. It was okay.
