July 19: Ten Books Set Outside the US
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
I didn’t know how I felt about this post, I read a lot of fantasy and most fantasy worlds are set in a different world, so those answers feel like a cop-out to me. It was a struggle to come up with ten real places but I did it!
- Anna and the French Kiss
Okay so for a portion of this story it is set in Atlanta but the majority of it does take place in Paris.
- Isla and the Happily Ever After
Again the main focus is that it takes place in France
- Between Shades of Gray
- Die for Me trilogy (I haven’t read it but I believe it’s set in Paris)
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone mostly takes place in Prague
- Venom takes place in Italy
And not only Italy, but Renaissance Italy, my favorite time period of Italy 🙂
- The Graveyard Book- London
- Me before You- England
I cannot for the life of me remember which part of England it takes place in….I go hide in shame now.
- Outlander- Scotland
- The Bronze Horseman- Russia
I did it! I didn’t think I was going to be able to without resorting to fantasy worlds but I didn’t have to! Once I started listing a couple a bunch started coming to me.
What was on your list? Do we have some similar answers?

Great list, not read any of them, but want to read Outlander. Here’s my list. https://bookgeeking.wordpress.com/2016/07/19/top-ten-tuesday-books-set-outside-the-us/
I too read mainly fantasy and was trying to avoid just putting fantasy worlds in.
