All about the Journey - Bump It Up on the List

For this short episode of Unabridged, we thought about journeys. Nearly every book contains some sort of journey--emotional, moral, time--but we wanted to focus on the physical journeys that often lie at the heart of novels to symbolize or catalyze something else.

Our TBR lists explode (or shuffle, at the very least) as we each recommend two books with journeys at their centers. Listen to Jen remember our website's url, Sara get past not really loving journey novels all that much, and Ashley consider why audiobooks, while not always quite her first choice, are better than growing her TBR even more. Then, head over to social media to share your recommendations!
