The majority of books I read have one of two settings: the US or some fantasy world. I'd love to read more books set elsewhere--in real, non-US places--and I'll be asking for your recs at the end of this post! I included two settings that aren't exactly Earthly, and you'll notice that I'm missing one very big continent (because I haven't read enough books taking place there). I also tried to include books that were mostly realistic and contemporary, and I attempted to focus on books with some focus on their setting...but I couldn't think of many. ANYWHO, here are ten (or so) of them.
What are your favorite books set outside of the US? Also, please give me recs! I need more books set in Asia.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein / Anna and the French Kiss and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins / His Fair Assassin by Robin LaFevers / Undead by Kirsty McKay / Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I'm including Neverland because I'm Peter Pan trash and IT'S REAL AND YOU CAN'T TELL ME OTHERWISE.
