BoB Challenges for Thursday

Book Road Trip Challenge hosted by Stephanie @ Reading In Wonderland

I'd like for you to come up with a list of the top 5-10 states/places you'd love to visit and find a book (you either read or want to read) that takes place in that state/place or a book by an author who lives or is from there. :]
My Book Road Trip 
Japan: Ink by Amanda Sun 
Italy: A Room With A View by E.M. Forester
New Orleans: The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice 
Nantucket: Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Bath, England (English countryside): Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen


The I-Spy Challenge, hosted by Paperback Daydreamer
The object of this game is to find the specific items listed below using the books you own! I do have just a few rules for this challenge so that it is a little more challenging. :)
  1. You can only use a particular book one time for the objects listed.
  2. You can only use two books from a series and then you can’t use that series again to find the remaining objects.
  3. You must use a book that you own either physically/electronically.
