The Wanderlust Tag

Wanderlust Tag

I saw this tag on Perfectly Tolerable‘s blog and thought it would be fun to do.  It is a tag originating with Alexandra@Reading By Starlight.

Both of these bloggers are awesome and you should give them a look for their answers as well.

  • Mention the creator of the tag and link back to original post [Alexandra @ Reading by Starlight]
  • Thank the blogger who tagged you
  • Answer the 10 questions below using any genre
  • Tag 5+ friend

I tried to find books that I not only have read to fill each category, but maybe lesser known titles.  I’m trying to spread the love a little bit.  Hopefully you will find something that interests you in this list, that you have not heard of before.  All of the covers link to my reviews of the books, except one which I read way before starting this blog.  


Secrets and Lies | A book set in a sleepy small town

Price Guide to the Occult


A small town on an island, you can’t get much sleepier than that. Plus there are lots of secrets and lies in this one.

Salt and Sand | A book with a beachside community

The Graces

This was a bit of a tough one, so this was the best I could come up with.  There is a beach near the Graces house where they have parties.  Which I guess means the town is on the beach as well.  

Here There Be Dragons | A book with a voyage on the high seas


I tried to find one with dragons and sea voyage, but we will have to settle for sea serpents.  

Tread Lightly | A book set down a murky river or a jungle


A Caribbean forrest counts right? This was a great story set in the Caribbean, a place I hope to visit someday.

Frozen Wastes | A book with a frostbitten atmosphere

Ice Wolves

That cover just about screams frostbite!  This is a great middle grade novel of shapeshifting wolves and dragons.  The sequel is out now, and I am thoroughly enjoying it.  

The Boonies | A book with rough or isolated terrain

The Lovely and the Lost

This one takes place mostly in a National park.  Lots of forest, mountains and caves that the search and rescue crews have to work through to find a lost little girl. 

Hinterlands and Cowboys | A book with a western-esque setting


This one starts out in Norway, but moves the to old west pretty quickly.  Loved it and it’s sequel.  I enjoyed the western setting with a nice light mix of Norse mythology.  

Look Lively | A book across sweeping desert sands

All the wind in the world

This one kept me very warm on a cold winter night.  And that cover is just so hot looking. 

Wild and Untamed | A book set in the heart of the woods


Ok, so maybe this one is a bit of a stretch, but I love this book and the woods do play a role.  I read this a long time ago, but I have been getting an itch to reread it.  Maybe soon.

Wildest Dreams | A whimsical book shrouded in magic

Rivers of London

So, the term whimsical to me means light hearted and fun, and even though this has a slightly darker feel to parts of it, the dry humor throughout makes up for that.   

Divider I don’t usually tag people, just because I’m always worried that they have already done the tag.  But this is such a new one, that I thought I would tag a few people.  Please don’t feel obligated to participate if you don’t want to.
