Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week there’s a new topic for a top ten list.
This week’s topic is Ten Books Set Outside The US. This was a lot harder than I expected because it seems that I read a lot of books set in the U.S.
1. Anna and the French Kiss – This book is set in the U.S. for parts, but the better part of the book is set in Paris. It’s a cute contemp book!
2. Me Before You – Such a good book, set in England. It was a tearjerker for me, so you might cry.
3. You and Me, Always – Jill Mansell is one of my favorite adult authors. Her books are set in various places in England.
4. Harry Potter series – A childhood favorite that I absolutely love. These books are set in England as well.
5. The Lunar Chronicles series – These books are set in various countries within the Eastern Hemisphere (in the future) AND IN SPACE!
6. The Wrath & the Dawn – A book set in the Middle East (I think?) with such beautiful imagery.
7. Just One Year – This is the second book in the duology, but the only one that isn’t heavily set in the U.S. Plus I liked book two a lot better than book one.
8. Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging series – I haven’t read these books in forever, but I remember them being hilarious. I think I stopped around book 5, so I need to re-read and then finish the series.
9. Twenties Girl – I haven’t read Sophie Kinsella in a while, but the books I’ve read I really liked. They’re all set in England for the most part, from what I’ve seen.
10. Queen of Babble – A little bit of this book is set in the U.S. (some of the beginning), but the rest is set in foreign locales (England/France).
Have you read any of the books I listed here? If so, what’d you think of them?
