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
  2. And I Darken by Kiersten White
    Ottoman Empire
  3. When the Crow Sings by Jacqueline Wales
  4. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
  5. My Brilliant Friend By Elena Ferrante
  6. Dublin Murder Squad series by Tana French
  7. I Love I Hate I Miss My Sister by Amélie Sarn
  8. Slumdog Millionaire by Vikas Swarup
  9. Saturday by Ian McEwan
  10. 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.
