Top Ten Tuesday: Far, Far, Away

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

 March 27: Books That Take Place In Another Country

When I started looking up books for this list I was surprised at how few were on my read shelf over at Goodreads.  Perhaps I need to venture out in my reading a bit more.

Ten books that were set in foreign countries.

  1. The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)  This one was set in the United Kingdom.  I enjoyed the first book quite a bit but the second one fell flat and I didn’t continue on with the series.
  2. The Oracle of Stamboul  This book is a historical fiction novel set in late 1800’s Istanbul Turkey.
  3. A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1)  This is a YA Fantasy trilogy set in the United Kingdom.
  4. A Thousand Splendid Suns This depressing but important read was set in Afghanistan.
  5. The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon, #2)  This mystery thriller was set in France, England, and Scotland.
  6. Last Train to Istanbul This emotional read was set during WWII in France and Turkey.
  7. The Alchemist This short read was set in Egypt and the Sahara Desert.
  8. Crack in the Curtain This indie story is set in Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey and the United States but most of it takes place in Bulgaria.
  9. Immortal Unchained (Argeneau, #25) Not too adventurous here as this story takes place in Canada.
  10. The Book of Life (All Souls Trilogy, #3) Not 100% sure what all countries this book is set in.  France for sure and England but probably a couple others too.

What are some of your favorite locations for books?
