This is a hard one for me because most of the books I read are set in America. Part of the appeal of books for me is that they’re not set in Australia because I get to read about somewhere I haven’t been before but want to visit. But I managed to find 10 books set outside the United States so here we go!

the sidekicks10 // The Sidekicks by Will Kostakis – Australia
This book was so good and also pretty emotional and I quite liked that it was set in my country.

9 // Love, Lucy by April Lindner – Europe
So I actually kind of hated this novel BUT I did like that it was set in Europe, especially Italy, because as you can see I haven’t read many books set in Europe.

8 // Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – Englandme before you
Everybody and their mother knows about this book and when I remembered it’s set in England, it HAD to go on this list!

7 // The Messenger by Markus Zusak – Australia
It’s been a while since I read this but I really enjoyed the Sydney setting!

stolen6 // Stolen by Lucy Christopher – Australia & England
I LOVED THIS BOOK and I loved that it was set in the Australian desert because I have never read a book set in the Aussie outback.

5 // Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling – England
Harry Potter is my new favourite series of ever and when I saw this week’s TTT topic, I knew it had to be on the list.

4 // The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – Germanythe book thief
I adore this book. It was actually the first historical fiction-y book I read as well as the first book I read set in Germany.

3 // Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – France
This book is ALL OF THE CUTE and the fact that it’s set in Paris just makes it better.

a darker shade of magic2 // A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab – England
I love V.E. Schwab and I love ADSOM. I think the cool thing about this is it’s set in not just one fantastical London, but four unlike all the others on the list.

1 // One Day by David Nicholls – England
This book broke my heart and I couldn’t resist putting it on this list because it’s set in England but not London and I really like that.

  1. Love the post! I also put Me Before You and Harry Potter on my list. I mean, duh, I HAD TO 😛 but instead of Anna and the French Kiss, I put Isla and the Happily Ever After because it’s my favorite and it has Barcelona in addition to France 😀 I have A Darker Shade of Magic on the top of my TBR because I have a feeling it’s gonna be great and people won’t seem to shut up about it hahaha I probably would recommend Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Prague) and The Wrath and the Dawn (Afghanistan) if you haven’t read them 🙂 Also, I’ve heard great things about Written in the Stars (Pakistan) but I haven’t read it either. My TTT :

  2. I didn’t know that Me Before You was set in England! Of course, I haven’t read it, so how would I know? It is crazy how many books are set in America! Great list! I’ll have to check these out. 🙂
