I've seen this as all kinds of different challenges before, but that wasn't really what I was looking for. I've got enough of a challenge ahead of me, and mostly I was just curious to see how many and what countries (and states in the USA) I was going to visit with the books I'm reading this year. Since I don't have the money nor the time to travel all around the world, I'm happy to do so in books!


I'm keeping tracks of the places I've visited and plan on updating the maps every ten books. Prepare and get ready for the first ten stops!


I started 2015 in Spain (The Barefoot Queen), which I left for one of my favourite cities: London, UK (The Paper Magician). I travelled to Berlin (Germany; Until the debt is paid), also one of my favourite cities and definitely a reason for me to pick a certain book up. Then some ocean hopping, first to Tennessee (USA; The Last Breath), back to London (The Last Magician), again to the USA, North Carolina this time (The Wonder of All Things). I've missed the exact location of Every Ugly Word, but it's definitely somewhere in the United States. The road-trip ended in Texas (USA; The Elephant on Sixth Street). Once Upon a Time is non fiction about fairy tales, so it doesn't really have a location of its own. But I finish this part of my trip back in London (From the Cradle).
