10 Books Set Outside the U.S.A | Top 10 Tuesday [#39]


Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday weekly fun on my blog! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This week’s topic is Top 10 Books Set Outside the U.S.A.

Let’s face it. A lot of the books we read are based in the US. That’s because a lot of authors write what they know, and a lot of authors we read today are American. That is all fine and dandy, but sometimes we want something a little different. So here is my list of books that are set outside of the U.S.A!
