Spend Spring Break Inside with These Great Book-Based Locations!

Since so many of us are spending time inside right now, we wondered, which places from our favorite books would we love to visit? We see the twinkle in your eyes from imagining all the possibilities! We put our heads together and created a list of our top ten YA book destinations. These are bound to send you off to a new adventure even if you can’t travel there in real life. Enjoy!

House of Salt and Sorrows

House of Salt and Sorrows

A beautiful and haunting retelling of the Grimm fairy tale “Twelve Dancing Princesses,” House of Salt and Sorrows takes place in Highmoor, a beautiful manor on a cliff by the sea on the Island of Salten. This obviously isn’t your standard spring break destination, but if you’re on the hunt for a dazzling mystery and some gothic feels by the ocean, then you’ve come to the right place.

Influence

Influence

We’re not saying the best part of traveling is the Insta-worthy moments, but we can’t deny how good it feels to share an adventure photo or five-star selfie on “the gram.” Influence takes place in glamorous L.A., where every day is full of breathtaking sunsets, jaw-dropping fashion, and all the drama an influencer could want. Feel free to sign us up for an Influence-esque spring break.

American Royals

American Royals

What if the US was a monarchy instead of a democracy? That question is answered in American Royals. No need to be whisked away to the grand palaces of the UK when you can experience royal decadence right here. If your spring break desire is to lounge in luxury like a princess, look no further.

The Good Hawk (Shadow Skye, Book One)

The Good Hawk (Shadow Skye, Book One)

Spring break in a mythical ancient Scotland? Sign us up! The descriptions of breathtaking views alone make The Good Hawk’s Scotland seem like a beautiful option. Especially as seen through the eyes of Agatha, who can speak with animals.

Everything, Everything

Everything, Everything

What if you were allergic to the world? Everything would be a bit of a bummer. But that’s Maddy’s reality. Maddy has SCID (severe combined immunodeficiency), but she takes a leap of faith with her next door neighbor and ultimate crush, Olly. The two decide to throw caution to the wind and go to Hawaii. We can’t help but feel a little sense of Hawaiian FOMO here. It’s the perfect spring break destination.

These Witches Don't Burn

These Witches Don't Burn

Hannah, a very real teenage witch (sorry, Sabrina!) lives in Salem, where she works for an enchanting magic shop called the Fly by Night Cauldron, selling crystals and candles. Sounds like the perfect place for a chill spring break, right? Oh, we forgot to mention, a terrifying Blood Witch is performing rituals and wreaking havoc upon the town. Add in a little ex-girlfriend drama and a hint of magical mystery and this spring break still sounds pretty good to us. Next stop: Salem!

Hot Dog Girl

Hot Dog Girl

Magic Castle Playland, a small-town amusement park, has its share of fun and vibrant personalities. First there’s Hot Dog Girl, whose real name is Elouise (Lou). She’s got a crush on the Dreamy Diving Pirate, Nick. But he’s got a girlfriend, the Princess of the Park. Seely, Lou’s BFF, is the carousel operator. She gets roped into helping Lou convince Nick to fall for her. Spring break at an amusement park where everyone finds love? Sounds like a roller coaster ride—count us in!

Catwoman: Soulstealer

Catwoman: Soulstealer

While the Bat’s away the Cat will play, and by Cat we mean Catwoman of Gotham City. When Batman goes on a vital mission, the city is left unprotected, and Catwoman makes Gotham her playground. If your dream spring break involves grappling hooks, action, intrigue, and mystery, then welcome to Gotham City. But watch out for clowns . . . seriously.

The Cousins

The Cousins

By Karen M. McManus

Coming 11.08.22

Milly, Aubrey, and Jonah Story are cousins, but they barely know each other, and none of them have ever met their grandmother, a rich recluse who disinherited their parents. They each receive a letter inviting them to work at her island resort for the summer, and it seems like they’d be silly not to go. Obviously secrets abound, but we’re here for the exclusive island resort and nothing else.

10 Things I Can See From Here

10 Things I Can See From Here

Maeve struggles with severe anxiety. Not many things comfort her, with the exception of her mom. Unfortunately, her mom just announced she’ll be away for six months, so Maeve moves to Vancouver to spend time with her dad. Then she meets Salix, a chill local girl who seems to ease her mind. Getting lost in a teen romance with the backdrop of scenic Vancouver? Seems like a perfect spring break to us.
