May Reading Challenge: Read For Travel to New Destinations

Published by Lara Luck / May 14, 2019

While not everyone can take a summer vacation, reading a book can always help you travel to someplace new and exciting. This month’s reading challenge is to read a book set in a place you have never visited. It can be somewhere you’d like to visit (Hawaii for example where “The Descendants” by Hemmings is set) or a place you are unlikely to ever get a chance to go (like in “The Martian” by Weir). This challenge is fairly broad and allows you to use your imagination.
