This is the Road Trip list! ^^
When I read Paper Towns by John Green and loved it, I realised I had barely read any books about road trips. Then I read Going Bovine and it was all kinds of awesome ( Review: http://oopsireadthatbook.blogspot.in/2012/05/going-bovine-by-libba-bray.html ) , and so I am now gonna read a whole heap of books about road trips.
1) On the Road by Jack Kerouac
Is it kind of embarrassing that I have not read this book yet? Yes. It is. And that must be changed soon.
2) Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Okay well, accepted this is more of a sea voyage than a road trip book, but it's an exception I made for this book because it's about a Tiger. And, I have a soft corner ( Translation: Obsession) for the Felines. Not to mention, much like the time when you are on the lookout for the perfect Woody Allen meets Jesse Eisenberg meets Seth Cohen hyper intellectual, neurotic guy, but you get totally distracted by a super hot french musician; well, this is like that time. A Man Booker Prize Winner being much like a super hot musician. French one. Stupid analogy. Because I'd totally prefer the dork.
3) The Least Awesome book by John Green
I started reading. Didn't like it as much as Paper Towns or Looking for Alaska. But whatever, John Green is John Green. This book is third person though. Meh.
4) Saving June by Hannah Harrignton
I really didn't wanna read this because I had made up my mind it was a quintessential romance book. But then a lot of people recommended it and I heard the main guy is like a hipster-ish dude who loves Neutral Milk Hotel or something. Anyways, I remember liking the music he likes, and it is a a road trip book, and the cover isn't shabby either so whatever, I'll check it out.
