One of the best parts of getting lost in a good book is that you get to be lost somewhere else. I love that I can be curled up on my couch in Los Angeles and instantly disappear into the streets of Paris or venture onto the misty North York moors, or even lounge by an infinity pool at a glamorous hotel in Singapore. Books are magical like that; in just a few pages, you’ve traveled to an entirely different world. And don’t we all need a little escape now and then, to break our routines and taste the salt air or dance under twinkling lights to a foreign melody? If you’re like me, your answer to that question is a resounding yes. And to help you fulfill your wanderlust, I’m recommending six books that will completely transport you—no plane ticket required.
