Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Staycation Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists over there at The Broke and the Bookish. I'd love to share my lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

So this week's top ten theme was summer and so I thought I would do a post featuring books to read if you aren't going away to another country this year, books that can let you have that escapism, even if you are only having a staycation. I know most of these books helped me escape some typical British summer weather and so hopefully they will help you too! You can click on the pictures of each book to go the buy page and I'll link any reviews I've written if you want to hear more of my thoughts...

What better form of escapism than a trip to Italy? This YA novel is a recent release that will have you travelling to the land of pasta and quality espresso! My review.

Paige Toon is the queen of escapism and this book is the perfect balance between UK escapism and a little trip to Thailand-fab! My review.

More Italy for you but this time for a little bit of romance and intrigue! My review.

If you're looking for something shorter, the whole of the Meet Cute series is great escapism, but this on is particularly sunny! My review.

Some middle grade now and something a little shorter again, this Geek Girl summer special is great and anything Geek Girl is escapism anyway! My review.

Another Paige Toon, I know but I loved jetting off to Australia for this one, her books really do whisk you away even if time and budget doesn't allow! My review.

This one is a great escape to Maine. I loved reading about the beachy scenery and the beachy attitude! My review.

Escape to Zante? Yes please! I have had a couple of awesome holidays there and this book brings it all back-just pure bliss! My review.

And if you're hooked on the Greek island idea then why not try the Island escape? We loved it here on the blog! My review.

And for some more British escapism, get to know Neil the puffin and indulge in some fresh bread by the sea! My review.

And a bonus one for you because a top ten wouldn't be complete without a Lindsey Kelk novel... Vegas Baby!

What do you like to read for escapism?
