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:
- Sisters of the Crescent Empress takes place in this magical Russia setting.
- Pachinko. This takes place in Japan and Korea.
- Song of Achilles takes place in Greece.
- Paris Adrift – like the name might suggest, takes place in Paris.
- Escape from Aleppo takes place in Syria.
- The Night Diary takes place in Pakistan/India.
- Pride and Prometheus takes place in England.
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.
