Top Ten Tuesday: Books Set Outside the US

TTT 1.0

For those who don’t know, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, they post a new theme and everyone is invited to join in! (Note: all book cover images in this post link to that book’s Goodreads page.)

Today’s Theme: Ten Books Set Outside the United States

After taking several months off, it’s so nice to do a Top Ten Tuesday post! Many of these have a fantasy element, but I only included those that are still modeled after our world.

Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor – Nigeria
Every Breath by Ellie Marney – Australia

Some of My Favorites:

The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)  Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)  Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)  Carry On  Die for Me (Revenants, #1)
