Top Ten Tuesday (14)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books Set Outside the US
Unfortunately I couldn't think of ten of my favorite books that were set outside of the US, but I managed to come up with a few! I might have overlooked some though that I've read, so if you have any favorites, feel free to share below and let me know!
1.  Stolen by Lucy Christopher (Set in Australia)
2. Death Wish (Ceruleans #1) by Megan Tayte (Set on an English cove)
3. Harry Potter (OBVIOUSLY) by J.K. Rowling
-It goes without saying that I had to include this on my list this week, because who would I be if I didn't?! :)
4. Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss #1) by Stephanie Perkins (Set mostly in France so I'm counting this one:) 
5. If You're Lucky by Yvonne Prinz (Australia)

  1. I have had Stolen on my to-read list for forever(!), and I didn't realize it was set in Australia. I also love Harry Potter, obviously. :)

    1. Kat you need to read Stolen ASAP then! it's so short too, so the commitment level for reading it is minimal! the first time i read it i read it in one sitting late one night! (i've since read it like 20 times no lie LOL)
      Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. I hope you're getting ideas for most out-of-USA books from people's posts. Reading broadens one's horizons. My TTT.

  4. I'm so bummed I missed TTT this week! I was looking forward to choosing books with a non-U.S. setting. But alas, ran out of time. (Real life got in the way, how dare it!) But I love seeing your picks. Stolen is a good one - the setting played such a big part in the story. Had I found the time to post, I would have included The Bronze Horseman (Russia), Outlander (Scotland) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Sweden).

    1. I had a hard time this week getting back into TTT with this topic, because I couldn't think of any settings outside of the US but once I started reading everyone else's I could kick myself for some of the obvious ones i forgot that I read!
      Funny story: Stolen's setting makes me NOT want to go to Australia (even though I love that book and it is one of my all time favorites) because I'm afraid I'm going to get lost out there! I never realized they had such open expanses of territory like that that people don't really inhabit! Crazy!
      I have yet to read Outlander but I have all the books! Do you watch the show too Tanya?

    2. To be honest, I have no real desire to go to Australia, either. I've never thought about getting lost in the Outback (lol) but I'll leave my Australian adventures to dinner at the Outback restaurant. :)

      Okay this is going to sound completely weird, but... I watched most of the first season of Outlander but haven't watched anything since. It was just too much. I can't even describe it right. I loved the books and I was loving the show but it was like, I loved it *too much* and it was overwhelming to see brought to life and I almost couldn't bear watching it week to week. I know that sounds ridiculous but I can't explain it any better. LOL

    3. OH NO! That's a bummer because I was really looking forward to the show! I think that's how I may feel about GOT when I finally get around to watching it. I want to get further into the book series though first before I do, because I don't want any spoilers from watching the show.
