Sometimes I love a book so much that it inspires me to explore the setting. Other times, I am traveling anyway and I happened to have read a book that takes place where I am going.
Jojo Moyes is a powerful writer. Her book was so complex and full that I wanted to learn more about the pack horse librarians of Kentucky. I researched different areas and found a wonderful little mountain town, Beattyville, KY.
Delia Owens is simply masterful in her literary grasp on nature. This book transported my mind to the marsh and I just wanted more! I loved every moment of this journey to Southport, NC. It really is a magical town and so reflective of Where the Crawdads Sing.
Hi Jenni, I heard your husband Greg talking about your new blog and so I thought I would check it out. It’s great! The timing was perfect for discovering your site. I just finished reading “The All You Can Dream Buffet” by Barbara O’Neal. It was a wonderful book and is about the lives of four foodie bloggers who become friends. Had I not read this book, I probably would not have been inspired to view your blog. If you haven’t read it, you definitely should. You will have a much better appreciation for its content that most. Happy reading!
Hi Claudia! I’m so happy that you’ve reached out. Thank you so much fir the kind words and the recommendation! I’m adding the book to my list.
