“I think you travel to search and you come back home to find yourself there.” 

 Have you ever thought of throwing your plans out of the window, packing up, hoping into a car and hitting the road?
Open roads, unexpected detours, alluring new places, new experiences and new faces. Tell me, I'm not the only one who loves the idea of a spontaneous road trip! :D 

This is probably why I love road trip books. So here are some of MY favorite road trip books:

And what's a road trip without music right? So here's a playlist that might come in handy when you want to to jump into that convertible and just drive off destination be damned!

  1. Ahhhh! This makes me want to go on a roadtrip. Though the cover of Take Me There just makes me want to tell those kids to quit making out in the middle of the road! Paper Towns is probably one of my favorite road trip novels...okay, it's the only one I can think of that I've read. I'll be checking some of these out!

  2. I don't think spontanously going on a road trip would be something I do. I like to plan things and feel in control and I would probably freak out to just go somewhere and see what happens, although it also does have a certain appeal. I have read a few road trip books, but I don't remember any from the top of my head. I like the cover of Take Me There and the font with the arrows.

  3. Oooooo that wallpaper is gorgeous Nuzaifa! I love that SerialSue font!

    After I read Paper Towns I was convinced that I needed a road trip in my life. I dream of just packing a bag and heading out into the world with no destination in mind. I loved that whole scene in Paper Towns, it was exhilarating!

  4. I've been dying to read Paper Towns by John Green! I loved Fault and I love that I can watch it on theaters soon!!!! :)

    Miss you Nuz, love the new blog layout! :)


  5. I love road trips.When I was little,our entire family used to pack up and go on trips often.But then when me and my cousins started to grow up,and got caught up with school,work and life,we don't do them a lot nowadays.I miss that feeling though:(
    My favourite road trip book is probably The Edge of Never.I loved the book and how the characters discovered a lot of things-including themselves-during that amazing trip.
