Books Set In Another Country

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature once hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! Each week, a new topic is put into place and bloggers share their top ten (or your own amount) accordingly.

I actually have a lot of books on my TBR that is set in other countries, but I haven’t got round to actually reading them yet, so this list was shortened to just five books that I have! A majority of these books aren’t 100% set in the country, I think in most of them, they often travel to that country or a major part of the novel is set in that country.

  1. The Kite Runner is by far one of my favorite books! I read it in high school and absolutely loved it. I’ve been meaning to read A Thousand Splendid Suns by the same author and never get around to it. Hopefully, I can find time for it soon. Great post by the way! I definitely need to read more books set in other countries!
