Top Ten Tuesday (7)


Happy Tuesday! Today I've decided to participate in Top Ten Tuesday, formerly hosted by Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish, now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today's topic is: 

Books That Take Place In Another Country

    
    
  
  


I could have chosen ten fantasy novels set in fantasy worlds, but surprisingly, it was very easy to come up with ten novels set in other (real) countries! These are among my favorites, though I have others that I loved. The majority on this list are in Europe (England, France, Scotland, etc.). I'd love recommendations set in countries of other continents!

  1. I just was noticing on book shelf, I have a lot of books that take place in Germany. Probably because I do enjoy historical fiction of WW2.

  2. Great picks, Alyssa!

    Hmmm, how about Susan Kaye Quinn's Third Daughter. It's a steampunk style set in India. Jeannie Lin does steampunk stories set in China and Japan, too.

  4. Nice! Yeah, at the time I couldn't think of 1 more pick that's in an actual real life country other than USA so I went with fantasy! Now I remember at least 2 picks! Lol!

  8. I love most of these books you've mentioned here. I still need to read the Deception book though. I also need to pick up Sky in the Deep! Hoping to do that some time next month!

  13. I don't think I've read any books set outside of the US or Europe but one of my favorite books House of Bathory is set in Slovakia. I don't think there are that many books set in Eastern Europe.

  14. I have only read one of the books on your list, Mortal Heart. I honestly didn't remember where it was set but I do think I need to branch out a bit.

  15. I have seen a lot of great lists, with so many diverse locations featured in fantasy books. I loved Anstey's book, and I want to read more of her work.
