Literary Places
Literary Places (Inspired Traveller's Guide) - Sarah Baxter,Amy Grimes

This was not at all what I had expected it to be. First of all, it wasn't really so much a Traveller's Guide, as a book with short descriptions of books and some of the locations it was set in. If I were planning an actual literary based holiday, I doubt this would have helped me.

What it does do is describe all books it mentioned shortly, and since I read less than a quarter of all the books mentioned this was nice. However, not really a travel guide. It then goes a bit deeper into some of the places that are mentioned (or sometimes not mentioned) in the book. While interesting, there were many instances of books chosen where you can not visit the places because they have either been demolishes, or the actual location was never given in the book and the author suggests it might have taken place there. This concept became repetitive rather quickly, and I would have liked to see some more variation.

Everything was accompanied by some colorful, bright drawings which I really enjoyed even though they were quite simple in style. For me, they were the part I enjoyed best. While I liked the idea of Literary Places, I found it was not what I expected and I think there could have been more in the book.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Inspired Traveller's Guide Spiritual Places by Sarah Baxter
Inspired Traveller's Guide Spiritual Places - Sarah Baxter

I love to travel but mostly I am a armchair tourist. I would love to visit everyone of the 25 places listed in this book. The 25 places listed in this book are from all over the world. They are all very spiritual places to visit. These are Spiritual not Religious. They open your spirit to the past. Some of the places are Crater Lake, Easter Island, and The Devil's Tower. There are amazing pictures of each site as well as a description  and some history. 


This is a short book but packed full of beauty and information. hopefully some day I will be able to see at least some of these places in person. 


I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
