Traveling has a special place in my heart; I love exploring new countries, cities and cultures both in real life and through the books I read. I know that already share a settings map in each The Numbers post, but I thought it was fun to take a closer look at the different bookish destinations I was able to travel to each month. Hence this monthly bookish post was born, Bookish Travel, where I will be sharing where the books I read that month took me.

September 2022 ended up being a decent travel month with not only multiple places in the UK and US (6 different states), but also eight further countries. Not the best I’ve had, but still pretty solid… Below a map featuring the different bookish travel destinations. (I use this page for the map.)

Ready to take a closer look at where exactly I was able to travel to during September? They will appear in the order I’ve visited them (except for the UK/US because they have multiple titles).

1. UK

With these books I was able to travel to the following UK destinations: London, Chesham, Winchester, Stewkbury (Bedfordshire), Manchester

2. US

With these books I was able to travel to the following US states: Virginia, New York, Kansas, California, Nevada, Georgia

3. FRANCE

The Ladies Of The Secret Circus also took me to Paris, both past and present.
