Wanderlust

Musing Monday's is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading!

This week’s question asks:
Do you ever read a word or phrase that sparks a specific place or setting in your mind and makes you crave to read a book with that type of place/setting in it?
This happens to me frequently. I love books that are set in New England (Boston in particular) and England. For me, reading books rich in setting appeals to my ever present wanderlust. I love to travel but it's not the easiest thing to do with small children. So, I open a book and travel these days. I can't wait to take my children to many of the places I love. For now, I'll visit them in the pages of books.
