Need a little inspiration for your next trip? Try a new book.

From "On The Road" to "Harry Potter," books have the power to spark our interest in certain places. Recently, author Kate Russo's highly anticipated novel "Super Host" hit the shelves –– giving readers a chance to dive into a story of second chances, creativity, and the world of hosting a home share.

The novel follows Bennet Driscoll, an artist whose financial success has started to take a downturn so he turns to hosting as a solution that not only helps his bank account but also find a little purpose thanks to some unique guests who come to stay.

"Thoughtfully designed with just the right amount of personal touch, that's how I imagined the house that Bennett rents out to support his passion. All of these listings share Bennett's love of design, originality, and comfort," said Russo in a statement.

While reading, you might find yourself inspired to check out some homes on Airbnb that exude the artistic sensibilities and unique tastes in Russo's book — and these Airbnbs perfectly embody the places in the book, according to Russo herself.

Check out these dazzling, creative spaces that could have you dreaming of your next trip.
