Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s theme is ten books that take place in another country, which is always a fun one. (And so fitting for March’s Monthly Motif!) We last did this theme back in July of 2016, so I’m keeping my list to books that I’ve read fairly recently. I’m happy to report that it was much easier to find a list of ten books this time around.
🇪🇸 The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee: Monty is from the UK and travels to Spain, Italy, and France.
🇺🇦 #Prettyboy Must Die by Kimberly Reid: Jake is from the US and most of the book takes place in the US, but at the beginning of the book, he’s on a mission in Ukraine.
🇬🇧 My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows: Jane is the seven-day queen of England!
🇯🇵 Seven Days of You by Cecelia Vinesse: Sophia is living out her last week in Japan as the book opens.
🇳🇵 Completely by Ruthie Knox: As the book opens, Rosemary is in Nepal climbing Mt. Everest!
🇦🇺 Lucy and Linh by Alice Pung: This book tells the story of a Chinese immigrant family in Australia.
🇨🇦 Catch and Release by Laura Drewry: This book is part of a series that takes place at a fishing resort in Canada!
🇬🇧 A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab: This book is also part of a series. It takes place in a series of parallel Londons.
🇨🇺 Break of Day by Andie J. Christopher: Carla is visiting her aunt in Cuba when a tropical storm strands her with a surly photojournalist.
🇫🇷 The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry: Dolssa is a young woman who hears the voice of God in Inquisition-era France.
