As you are reading this, I’m off at Albuquerque’s Balloon Fiesta! I’ve gone the past two years and as long as I’m living in the area, I’m not going to miss it! It’s absolutely beautiful and each experience is fantastic.
So today’s post is about hot air balloon related books on my TBR. One of them got there because it saw it on sale at the festival. The rest of them are the result of an Amazon search. I hope you enjoy!
Ultimate Hot Air Balloon Bucket List
This one looks super intriguing. The title and cover don’t lend itself to excitement, but I’ve had a chance to flip through the book and it looked pretty great.
Hot Air The (Mostly) True Story of the First Hot Air Balloon Ride
This looks like a super cute children’s book.
Oriland Balloon Ride (Origami Hot Air Balloons)
These look like super awesome origami balloons.
The Twenty One Balloons
I’ve never heard of this book, but apparently it’s a classic? So I’ll have to check it out.
Mystery of the Hot Air Balloon (Boxcar Children)
I loved the Boxcar children series when I was younger! I don’t remember reading this one, but it sounds great! (I sort of miss series where it doesn’t end up in apocalypse… it’s just a snippet of someone’s life, so it can keep going and going and going.)
Ballooning, A History
It’d be pretty cool to learn about the history of balloons I think.
Early History of Ballooning
Another history book.
Romance with a Side of Green Chile
This looks like a cute romantic novella.
Balloon Boy of San Francisco
I think this is a based-on-true-life story that sounds pretty unbelievable.
Max and Maddy and the Bursting Balloons Mystery
Another cute balloon themed children’s books.
Did I miss any awesome hot air balloon-y books? Have any of you been to the festival? What did you think?
