2015 Bookish Road Trip!

Hello and welcome to the first post of my new blog Bookishjessp! I am really excited to start this journey and I thought why not start with a post that I will be building off of for the rest of 2015. I first got inspired to do this post by looking at The Subtle Chronicler another book blogger, who I met on Goodreads and Instagram. He called this post the 50 State Book Challenge.I am going to add my own twist to it by seeing how many books I can read that take place in a different state, and see if I can get all 50 states completed by the end of the year. Now for the book to count, the majority of the story has to take place in said state.

    For Missouri you could use any Gillian Flynn novel (Gone Girl, Sharp Objects, Dark Places). There’s also “The Weight of Blood” by Laura McHugh, “Winter’s Bone” by Daniel Woodrell and “Noggin” by John Corey Whaley. I may or may not be a Missouri girl 🙂 And for Nebraska you could use “Attachments” and/or “Eleanor & Park” by Rainbow Rowell.

      Thank you for the recommendations! I might just have to do Gone Girl and Eleanor & Park since I own both of those books and they are currently on my tbr, but I will also check out some of those other ones for the heck of it 🙂
