Top Ten Tuesday (46)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This Tuesday's theme is...

Top Ten Favorite Books With X Setting:
Foreign Settings

I know it's not very original, but I just couldn't think of anything else. I looked through my shelves, searching for ideas, and some books with foreign settings just popped out at me. So, here are ten YA books I like that have a foreign (not in North America; sorry, Canada) setting. (And no classics, either, or else Hamlet would be on here.)

Where I Want A One-Way Ticket To:
(And a little bit of England. I think. 
Round-trip ticket, please.)

Some Tropical Island and London, 
But Mostly Some Tropical Island:

The War-Ridden Danger Zone:

That Place I Want To Go To and 
That I Am A Woman Of:

P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney:

That Country Mulan Saved:

I Don't Know What To Say For This One:

Etienne, Etienne, Etienne:

Where Chandler and Monica...
You Know:

That Place With The Attic Where Important Things Happen:

What setting did you choose to explore this week?


  1. Great list! I have heard wonderful things about the atmospheric backdrop in The Madman's Daughter, and I agree that the foreign backdrop in Anna was done well. When I finished the book, my first thought was, "Wow, I need to go to Paris and attend this school," but then I remembered SOAP doesn't actually exist. :( Haha.

  2. Great picks! Majority of these are still on my TBR pile but I really liked TFiOS.

    My TTT

  3. I've only read a few of these but I've loved them all. Anna and the French Kiss has one of my favorite settings, as does Meant to Be. I'm going to have to check out Stolen, Endangered, and Origin since those sound like ones I might enjoy. Great list!

  4. This is a great list! I've only read Anna out of all of them though! I have a few of the others and plan on reading them soon!

  5. Oh this is an awesome list! And I love your prelude to each book! So many books on this list I still need to read.

  6. Great list! I think I'd go on and on if this was my topic for this week :) I read Girl With the Pearl Earring a few years ago and enjoyed it. Need to revisit that book one of these days...

  7. I agree, this was a hard TTT for my blog too. I haven't read too many foreign books, but Anna and the French Kiss was a great book =)
    Nice List!

    My TTT

  8. Haha I love your titles before each book! TFIOS, Anna, and Stolen are all great!! I really need to read Tiger Lily.

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT!

  9. I love Nemo reference haha. This is a great list. I really need to read Tiger Lily soon!

  10. My big thing is historical, so at this point, I've probably read more European-set books, and a number of Japanese-set books, than books in my own native continent. I should probably branch out a little more and try to find books set in less-familiar-to-me places, like Africa, China, and Persia.

  11. I loved The Fault in Our Stars. Great choice!

    My TTT.

  12. I'm about to start Tiger Lily!!! Very excited for it.

    YA Sisterhood

  13. HAHA, what a great list set up! "Where Monica and Chandler... You know"
