The Great Book of lists : Chapter 1.4 : The Books that Transport You

Hi friends,
This week’s theme is suggested by Jartagnan.  He submitted a list of themes on the Facebook page and I was really happy about it because I have always thought of the Great Book Of Lists as an interactive experience. Follow his example and don’t hesitate to use the comments section to tell me on which themes you would like to do a list.

Let’s dive into our memories and list books that transport us out of our daily lives, of our town, our country, our universe… the ones that took us by surprise through the night with the « Just-One-More-Page Syndrome. I’m talking about the books that made you feel like you knew the characters, like you were riding dragons or finally understanding the underlying truth of the universe, the one that made you experience the character’s journey almost like they did, the one you did not want to finish but were dying to 1/ know the end 2/ know if a sequel was already in the works.



The List of Books that transport me

The books are not listed in any order. I just wrote the titles as I remembered them.
