When I Realised That I Read A LOT of Books Set in the US!

July 19, 2016 Top Ten Tuesday 6

Top Ten TuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.

Summer is finally here! And now I wish it would go away! Haha, only joking. But seriously, it is WAY hotter then any English person could cope with right now! Plus, the warm weather seems to be totally screwing up my blood glucose readings which is not very helpful and I’m a bit all over the place with them at the moment. I guess these things are sent to try us!

So, I think my problem is that I read a lot of Fantasy. So although it looks like I read nothing but books set in the US, I don’t, but if the book is not set in the US then chances are that the place doesn’t actually exist in the real world!

Anna and the French KissIsla and the Happily Ever After

I loved both of the books, they were perect swoony romance books with characters you could help but route for. Plus, set in the backdrop of Paris, the most romantic place ever!


HP Covers 4

Harry Potter – If there is one thing I am proud of in my life it is that I am from the same country as Harry Potter! I don’t have to explain why I love this series so much, but I always love reading it and spotting all the places in the UK that I know!

Summer Shadows – I have never read a book set in Afghanistan before and it was really interesting to read about the traditions and customs of the country. We only ever seem to hear about the bad things that happen over there, so reading a romance set in the country was refreshing.



Where Rainbows End/Love, Rosie – I love this book, it’s totally unique for the way that it is written because it’s all done by correspondence between all of the characters. I had a love/hate relationship with it because I love the unique format, but then I miss the interactions between characters. Still an awesome book though!


seeking crystal cover

Seeking Crystal – If there is one place in the world that I want to go it is Venice! I loved the setting of this book and it made an excellent addition to the series. If you haven’t already read any of the Benedict’s series then you must!

Have you read any of these books that are set outside of the US?

What’s on your list this week?

      Haha I really do! I must go and do some research on GR about books not set in the US! 🙂

    I think we all read far more books set in the US than we first realise. I thought about doing this weeks theme because I love the idea of travelling through books (we can’t always afford to in real life, can we?) and then I realised the majority of my books are set either in the US or the UK and that would be a very boring UK based list, wouldn’t it? I do like the books you’ve picked, though. HP is a series I’d not thought but they are so quintessentially British aren’t they? Looking at your list I’ve not read any Joss Stirling but I may have to investigate as they seem to be set in some interesting places.

      I totally get you, there are some really cool places that I never would have known about if it hadn’t been for books! Yes, do! Joss Stirling’s books are great!
