Book Blogger Love-A-Thon: Mash-Up Mini Challenge

book blogger loveathon

Hello again, Love-A-Thon-ers! It’s the second day of Love-A-Thon and we’re kicking it off with a fun mash-up mini challenge. The challenge is to mash-up your bookish life with a non-bookish real life hobby/passion/talent.

One of the many good things about books is that you get to travel to different, interesting places without ever leaving the comfort of your home! I like traveling but I don’t get to do it enough – at least I get to feed my travel bug through reading about faraway places! Road trip books especially showcase interesting coming of age stories. Since I like road trip books, and music, my mash-up is a road trip playlist!

These are some of my favorite road trip books:

What are your favorite road trip books or travel tunes? Do tell!

  1. Pompeii would have me scaring other drivers with my dance ritual. Ooo, Cold War Kids too! Definitely can see these playing on a road trip!

  2. I love road-trip books SO MUCH so it makes me happy you did this post 🙂 Amy & Roger to me is like the ultimate road-tripping book. Their destinations weren’t as crazy-MUST-see as other books have been but it is the little details that make that book so fun. Also YAY for the awesome playlist!

    I love this idea so much! How fun. I took so many great road trips when I was in college–I miss that. I need to go check out some of your recommendations!

  4. Man I definitely need to come back to this post later and check out this playlist and those books. I love road trip books – Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour is one of my contemporary favorites! And I am super obsessed with Bastille.

  5. Is it sad that I have not read any of the books on your list?! I am apparently lacking in the road trip book list department! Great Mash-up!

    I love your playlist!! I’ve always wanted to do a road trip 🙂 I’ll add these books to my TBR!

    I’ve never read any road-trip books but they sound like fun for a summer read. When I’m travelling I like to listen to chilled out tracks by bands like the Beach Boys and Beautiful South.

  8. I haven’t read any of those books but I want to! And I love your playlist! Bastille is my favorite band right now! Great mash up!

    So many artists that I LOVE on this list! Followed it on Spotify, so I can give it a proper listen to 😀

    I love a good road trip book – I’ve only read Saving June on your list though, so looks like I’ve got some reading to do!

  10. I can’t wait to hear which books you choose to read! Have you read other Daisy Whitney books, or just WHEN YOU WERE HERE? I love the new cover for THE NIGHT ITSELF!

    Ooh, road trip songs!! I have a whole playlist of songs I like to listen to in the car. I like things that are really upbeat…I have a lot of Kelly Clarkson and Pink on that playlist, lol!

    I read The Disenchantments this summer and really enjoyed it. I’m not musical or a risk-taker–but I like to imagine that I am–so this book gave me the opportunity to “go on tour”!

  12. I love music and I think this is such an awesome road trip playlist! 🙂 Great mash-up! 😀

  13. I love road trips! It might sound funny coming from someone who barely drives. But seriously, the idea of traveling through different places with some of the people you love? Amazing. This road trip mix was a great idea!
