Top Ten Tuesday (171)

is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This Tuesday's theme is...

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.




South America

Outer Space


I'm including Neverland because I'm Peter Pan trash and IT'S REAL AND YOU CAN'T TELL ME OTHERWISE.

What are your favorite books set outside of the US? Also, please give me recs! I need more books set in Asia.


  1. Fun set up! I really like how you separated this. Love seeing 'Anna' on your list (it's made lots this week - YAY!), and am curious about Grave Mercy too.

  2. Cool list of books! I loved the His Fair Assassin Trilogy by Robin Lafevers, but forgot to add it to my TTT this week.

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2016/07/top-ten-tuesday-ten-books-set-outside-us.html

  3. I included Neverland too in my list. It's TOTALLY real! xD

  4. I was really disappointed with Stolen! I also have a couple from Europe on my list! :-)

  5. Code Name Verity was on my list this week too. I can't believe I missed A Darker Shade of Magic off my list, I literally just read it and loved it.

  6. Great graphics! Stolen also made my list! It's such a great book!
    My Top Ten Tuesday!

  7. Oh, clever that you used a made up place. Tiger Lily is an awesome book.

  8. Of course Neverland is real! I love your graphics too - makes the locations really stand out. I've got a couple of books set in Asia on my list this week - My TTT

  9. +JMJ+

    I love that there are so many Peter Pan spin offs set in Neverland! =D

    Here's my Top 10 for the week!
