Let’s go on a road trip! Pick 3-4 people—fictional characters, readers/bloggers, authors—you’d love to take on this road trip; a place you’re headed towards like Disneyland, Grand Canyon, Martha’s Vineyard, etc; and what you’ll be doing on this road trip, like topics of discussion, who’s driving, who’s in charge of the road trip music, etc.

Welcome, to the Cross-Canada Chickas road trip! Driving across this country is a little ridiculous and would likely take a million years, but somehow we’ll manage. Since we have a a little magic up our sleeve (see passenger list), we were not only able to do the trip over the summer, but also had plenty of room in our pretty blue SUV…


Who is Coming:

Front – Jennifer L Armentrout, author. Me (I get carsick).

Middle – Anne, Anne of Green Gables. Belle, Beauty and the Beast. Hermione, Harry Potter.

Back – Catherine Morland, Northanger Abbey. Marie, author & blogger. Cath, Fangirl.

  1. Have you been to Library of Parliament in Ottawa? It’s BEAUTIFUL! My post is about an Canada road trip too…and it’s one that will actually be happening this summer! I would love to listen to Belle and Hermione have a chat!


    1. I haven’t been there, but looking up bookstores and libraries across Canada has made me really want to take this trip! At the very least I want to go to the only bookstore that is in two countries!


    1. The front seat, travel wristbands, anti-nausea pills, and a lot of distraction do wonders for getting me through long trips… but surely Hermione would have some magical potion that works better 😉
