Take ten: books that take place in another country
I do believe some of my most favorite stories take place in another country, so this is an easy list for me.;) If you would like to learn more about the book, just click the image to go to Amazon. This post does contain affiliate links (thanks for supporting my book habit!;))
1. Close to You
I loved this one! I mean, it's set in Hobbiton (in New Zealand, in cause you aren't a nerd married to a nerd. lol)and has a gorgeous romance, need I say more?;)
2. Then There Was You
I related a lot to Paige, and love that she travels to Australia, a country that has a piece of my heart.;)
3. Harvest of Rubies
This one is set in ancient Persia.
4. Garden of Madness
I loved the books I read in this series, since it is about the Seven ancient wonders of the world. This one featured Solomon's handing gardens.
Because my list isn't complete without an Austen on it.;)
6. The Bronte Plot
I loved that this one is not only set in England, but also has the characters go on a literary tour!
7. The Hawthorne House series
This one is just an excellent Regency series set in England. I could of made this more challenging and limited myself to one book per country, but I may not of been able to come up with 10.;)
8. The French Twist series
Granted, it has been a while since I read this series (and yes, the cover of this one is not set in another country, I realize that;)), but I really enjoyed the baker having a chance to live in France.
9. The Giftsnatcher
This one makes a lot of my lists, because it was so incredibly well written and totally out of my normal genre, with having elements of magic in with the story of Jack the Ripper.
10. There You'll Find Me
Set in Ireland, this is a humorous, yet deep, YA story.
The Chronicles of Narnia
They are kind of in England.;) I just had to fit them in!
So, that's my list for the week! I look forward to seeing what you all have on yours!

Kara! Jenny! Katherine! Narnia! And of course, I so need to read Charity's book. I've zero doubt it's imaginative. :)ReplyDelete
You do need to take the time to read some of her books! I'm right there with you though, since I have one of her books on my kindle that has been there way to long. I may need to start it next...;)Delete
I fit Harry Potter and Narnia on my TTT too <3 <3 Happy reading!ReplyDelete
They work well!;)Delete
Thanks for stopping by!
You have some wonderful sounding books on your list. And I love the cover of EMMA that you chose. My TTTReplyDelete
I hadn't seen that cover before, so I had to use it.;) The colors are fun!Delete
I unfortunately couldn't include Harry Potter as I live in England! Great list. :-)ReplyDelete
That is sad.;) I will have to see what, if any books you included on your list that are set in America.Delete
Lovely list! The Giftsnatcher just ended up on my kindle. Oops. 😂ReplyDelete
Here's my link: https://wp.me/p6C2DX-1zZ
Oops, how did that happen?;) I hope you enjoy it every bit as much as I did!Delete
Awesome list! I have a couple of Kara Isaac's books I need to read. :) Love Tracy Higley's "Seven Wonders" series; I have one on my list too! I also included There You'll Find Me. So many great authors and settings!ReplyDelete
I hope you get the chance to read Kara's books soon, since they are wonderful! I can't wait to read the new series she is working on.;)Delete
I need to get back to the Seven Wonders series, since I realized I haven't read it all.
I will have to check out your list now.;)
Nice list! Harry Potter is one of my favorite series, honestly. :)ReplyDelete
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
One of mine too! It's such a fun series.Delete
Ahh another list with HP and Narnia :D Sometimes I feel like we can use HP in any list :DReplyDelete
I haven't read any of the other books on your list but they definitely looks good.
My TTT: http://flippingthruthepages.com/2018/03/ten-books-that-take-place-in-another-country/
I feel the same way! I originally had them as part of the actual list, then I decided that they needed to not be numbered, since I put them on most of my lists.;)Delete
Really unique books!! I read the Chronicles of Narnia also. I have Harry on my list also-how could you not?LOLReplyDelete
I know! I just wish Hogwarts was real.;)Delete
I haven't done the Narnia series yet, but I loved to watch the dodgy movie series as a kid XDReplyDelete
The books are way better, so hopefully you will find the time to read them.:)Delete
I may have to check out Higley's books! :)ReplyDelete

I can't speak for all of them, but I loved learning more about the Seven ancient wonders of the world!Delete
