Hello lovely book clubbers and welcome back to another month of travel reading!

This month I wanted to switch it up and share with you a more serious (and seriously inspirational) read in the book club selections.

I love hearing your feedback on the book selections and almost always agree with you guys, so this month we’re moving away from the light and fluffy books (though Paris Letters is seriously one of my all time favourite books), and onto something a little more adventurous that gets down into the nitty gritty.

I myself will be reading this month’s selection for the first time, however have already seen the film adaption of the book and know it is an incredible tale. I’m more excited about the book (as I’m sure you all know the book is usually better than the movie) and really can’t wait to get stuck into this read on my next long plane journey.


March Selection: TracksΒ 

This true story follows the author, Robyn Davidson, as she makes her way across 1,700 miles of the Australian desert with her four camels and dog in tow.

The author herself states,

β€œI experienced that sinking feeling you get when you know you have conned yourself into doing something difficult and there’s no going back.”

I truly hope you guys love this month’s selection and if the book is anything like the movie or even slightly better (I’m sure it is), you’re in for one incredible journey!

    Intriguing! I put the movie on my queue so I can paint a better picture of the setting as I read πŸ™‚

    I’m so excited to read this book! I actually just watched the film a few days ago before I saw that it was this month’s book! It was so inspiring, sad, and such beautiful cinematography! Great choice, Brooke!

    Can’t wait to read the book and watch the movie. I love Mia Washakowski so I’m super excited that she’s playing the title role πŸ˜€

    This was a great movie and it is so crazy and courageous, somethings that people do. I love this story!!

    I actually left a comment a couple days ago on your review for “Girls Who Travel” about how great the idea of a book club is for you & your readers. It inspired me to start a book club of my own with my readers and your book of the month “Tracks” is on my list of books for us to read! I have seen the movie and loved it so, like you, I am looking forward to reading this story. Thanks again for the inspo and I am anticipating your review and discussion questions at the end of the month πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the recommendation. I have just started reading Shantaram, which is the longest book I’ve ever attempted (almost 1000 pages) telling a true and gritty story of a wanted man who escapes to India. I have also heard books by Emily Barr are great travel fiction but often lean towards the thriller genre too. I would like to give this a go after (if I ever) finish Shantaram πŸ™‚

    This is one of my favorite books. Try to read the National Geographic article on Robyn’s journey if you can.

    Very excited to read this one! I love true stories told in the first person – so much easier to relate to.

    I am completely in love with the movie! It was incredibly well made and it’s such an inspiring story! The book is very high on my to-read list.

    This sounds so interesting! I’ve been wanting to read more travel writing for a while so I think I’ll be starting with this

    Yes, I’m very glad with this choice. I just bought my copy. For people who are interested, it’s only 2,79 USD for the Kindle version.

    Wow! Thank you for this selection :). Have been planning to read this one since a long time.
