10 Books Set Outside the US

Ten Books Set Outside the U.S.
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

There were no stipulations besides the "U.S." thing, but I didn't let myself go crazy.  I chose to stay away from magical lands that are technically not in America, and stuck with realistic fiction (for the most part).  I did, however, take full advantage of teen travel titles that send the characters on a journey through Europe to find themselves or some great truth.

What's on your list?  Happy reading!

1) Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (France)

2) A Time to Dance by Padma Venkatraman (India)

Love & Gelato
3) Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch (Italy)

13 Little Blue Envelopes (Little Blue Envelope, #1)
4) 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson (Europe)

5) Just One Day by Gayle Forman (Europe)

6) The Good Braider by Terry Farish (Sudan)

7) Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys (Lithuania/Siberia)

8) Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (England/France)

The Royal We
9) The Royal We by Heather Cocks (England)

10) The Martian by Andy Weir (Mars)


  1. I should have added Code Name Verity to mine - such a good novel!
    Check out my TTT.

  2. Between Shades of Gray sounds like a good read, but the fact that it's set during WWII is kind of a turn off. Maybe I'll try it out anyway. Great Top Ten! :D
    My Top Ten Tuesday!
