Ten Books Set Outside the US

A lot of the books I read set outside the US tend to be set in somewhere in the British Isles or a fantasy land. That made this week’s theme a tad bit difficult as I didn’t want to repeat locations. However, I managed to pick ten books that take place in ten different countries (or the rough equivalent.) I did this quickly and they aren’t necessarily favorites, but still books I enjoyed that brought me to different corners of the world.

  1. Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K. Johnston
    Canada
  2. And I Darken by Kiersten White
    Ottoman Empire
  3. When the Crow Sings by Jacqueline Wales
    Scotland
  4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
    Persia
  5. My Brilliant Friend By Elena Ferrante
    Italy
  6. Dublin Murder Squad series by Tana French
    Ireland
  7. I Love I Hate I Miss My Sister by Amélie Sarn
    France
  8. Slumdog Millionaire by Vikas Swarup
    India
  9. Saturday by Ian McEwan
    England
  10. My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman
    Sweden

Looking forward to reading others’ lists for this week so I can challenge myself to read more books set around the world.

As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish.
