Feature and Follow: Armchair Travel

Armchair Travel! Tell us about your favorite book in a setting you’d like to visit (a real place for this question).

I'd definitely have to pick The Hunter's Moon by O.R. Melling. It takes place in Ireland, in fact it takes place all over the place in Ireland (the main character spends most of the book chasing another).

Normally I'd choose a book in Japan, but I'm currently here, so that would defeat the purpose of armchair travelling.

The Hunter's Moon, follows two cousins, Gwen and Findabhair, as they backpack around Ireland in search of the country's magical past. When she arrives in Ireland to visit her cousin Findabhair, American Gwen expects a fun backpacking trip to sites of the fairy lore they're both fascinated with. What neither cousin knows is that it's the summer of the Hunter's Moon, a dangerous time for mortals to meddle in the kingdom of Faerie. The girls camp out, and deep in the night Finn is kidnapped by the handsome Faerie king! In Gwen's quest to save her cousin, across beautifully evoked settings of modern-day and mystical Ireland, the spunky heroine's biggest challenge may be convincing Finn she needs to be saved!

I don't know much about Ireland. I just associate them with leprechauns, St. Patrick's Day, and the color green.

Thank you guys, I'll hop through your blogs in a bit~

I've always wanted to visit Ireland since I was young, though I'm not quite sure why lol. Especially since, unlike many white Americans, I don't have a drop of Irish blood in me.
