A meme from the That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today’s Topic: Books That Take Place In Another Country

My initial thought was how easy it would be to cheat on this topic as a fantasy reader, but when I decided to stick to actual places it was actually still tough to narrow down!

  1. The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova – Netherlands, Turkey, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria…
  2. The Quiet American by Graham Greene – Vietnam
  3. People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks – Australia, Bosnia, Austria, Italy, Spain…
  4. Dingo by Charles de Lint – Australia
  5. Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey – New Zealand
  6. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater – Ireland? (The island itself is fictional but probably.)
  7. The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen – Denmark
  8. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – Czech Republic
  9. GraceLand by Chris Abani – Nigeria
  10. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – England
