Top Ten Tuesday: Books that Take Place in Another Country

When I was first planning my calendar, I was like, “Oh I’ll have a ton of books for this prompt”. And then I looked at my shelf. Books that take place in a fictional fantasy realm I wasn’t sure if they counted – and then I realized I would have to be more creative. This is part of the Top Ten Tuesday series that is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl now!

  • The Leavers. While a large part of this book takes place in the US, a huge chunk takes place in China as well. These scenes and time there are essential to the story as a whole.
  • The Astonishing Color of After. It has a similar situation as The Leavers. Our main character spends time in Taiwan that is integral to her journey.

And now my non-cheating answers:

So there you go, some cheating answers, some real answers. But this does give me an idea to do another list with FANTASY worlds and those that take place IN SPACE.


What were some of your ideas for this prompt?

  1. Greece and PAris are two places I always enjoy reading about. And China!

    I think a list of places in fantasy or in space would be cool!

  2. Well, I have Pachinko but haven’t read it yet. I have Americanah which is set in Nigeria. A Thousand Splendid Suns which is set in Afghanistan? Some British books, some American books.
