This is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week, there’s a theme and you choose ten books that fit it. Check out upcoming topics here.
Woooow, I haven’t done a TTT since December I’ve meant to do so many since then, but I am terrible about remembering and I have no clue why. *sigh* Oh well. This week, I actually managed to remember, and I love the topic, so let’s get to the books!
(I’m in the US, btw.)
In no particular order…
There’s a lot of England on this list
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray (England)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (England…I think)
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde (again, England…I think)
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (England, but there’s 4 of them!)
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (England)
The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle (I *think* this is set in Ireland)
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer-Bradley (it’s an Arthurian retelling, so wherever that is specifically, sorry )
The Witches by Roald Dahl (set in England and Norway, I think)
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor (Czech Republic)
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón (Spain)
Honestly, I know I’ve read books that took place in other countries, but either A) I couldn’t remember them, B) they took place in a lot of different places (like how in most, I think, of Dan Brown’s books they’re moving around a lot) and I couldn’t remember locations, C) I didn’t like them enough to include them on a “favorites” list, or D) they were non-fiction (and maybe that would have counted for this week’s prompt, idk, but I decided not to use them).
But I still really, really need to read more books set in more places, so if you have recs, please leave them below! I have a few set in other countries that are on my TBR pile, but I haven’t gotten to them yet 😦 Hopefully soon, though.
