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.
- Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K. Johnston
- And I Darken by Kiersten White
- When the Crow Sings by Jacqueline Wales
- The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
- My Brilliant Friend By Elena Ferrante
- Dublin Murder Squad series by Tana French
- I Love I Hate I Miss My Sister by Amélie Sarn
- Slumdog Millionaire by Vikas Swarup
- Saturday by Ian McEwan
- My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman
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.
