Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
March 20: Books that Take Place in Another Country
I don’t go out of the way to purposefully choose books that have taken place in another country. That said, I do tend to read authors from England. Many of the psychological thrillers have been placed in England. But, for me, as I’m looking at these books, the placement of the story is not really what matters, and probably explains why I don’t even remember where most of them are placed.
Me Before You and Wed to a Spy are probably the ones where placement is more important due to relationships and speech being different. In Me Before You the dress is different as well, but she dresses with an interesting flair anyway! She would dress like that whether in the U.S. or England! Which is what makes her character so much fun.
It does look like I need to venture out a bit more. I thought I read one in India, but again, the details of the placement get lost for me. Also, the fact that I enjoy reading horror and dystopian make the countries less important and the characterization more so.
Have you read around the world or do you tend to read from certain countries?
