Challenge: Fictional World Travel.
“Today’s challenge is to list 3 to 6 books of fiction that take place in countries other than the one you currently reside in. Some countries are easy to find books set in them, but possibly the more challenging of picks will be the ones that intrigue the most. All you need to do is list the books of choice on your blog, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, etc., and display them how you wish. BE CREATIVE! Then come back here and link up your results, and then visit other participants’ blogs and social media link-ups and see what books they chose for the challenge.”
When you live in the United states, it seems like there aren’t a lot of YA books that are set in a different country/a country that isn’t really written about. The books I have read that are in places like Sweden (Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist), have been e-books, and I can’t stack an e-book! The books I chose are:
- Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. Aruba.
- Something Blue by Emily Giffin. London, England.
- Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins. Paris, France and Barcelona, Spain.
- How To Build A Girl by Caitlin Moran. Somewhere in the UK..(I haven’t read it yet!)
- The Martian by Andy Weir. Mars.(Space is not in the U.S.. it’s an equal opportunity 🙂 )
