Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
I love discovering and falling in love with new countries and cultures through books! That moment where an author perfectly captures the beauty of the country their story is set in, is pure magic. So today I’m going to share some of my favorite books that are set in another country than my own. Though technically ever book set in the USA is a book set in another country for me since I’m from Belgium, I’ll just choose one book set in the USA and keep the rest out of the list because there wouldn’t be much variety in it otherwise. Also I have to note that some of these are fantasy or sci-fi series that are in worlds inspired by those countries. And since this is my list, I say that counts! So let’s get on with the list!
