Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Take Place in Another Country

Posted March 27, 2018 by smutmatters in Top Ten Tuesday / 2 Comments

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday over at That Artsy Reader Girl is books that take place in another country. I had fun going through my lists to find these books. Here’s my list for this week:





  1. Devil in Spring – The third book in the Ravenels series by Lisa Kleypas was as fun as I’d hoped. Gabriel and Pandora were one of my favorite couples of 2018 so far.
  2. A Princess in Theory – I did just read this one, but I loved it so much it’s earned a place here.
  3. Marrying Winterborne – Am I cheating by putting 2 books from the same series in this list? Maybe. But when they’re this good, who cares?
  4. Crazy Rich Asians – I read this one for my book club and it was fantastic. I cannot wait to see the movie.
  5. I Let You Go – I know. I rated this one as middling. But it was actually hard to come up with 10 books I’ve read recently that take place in another country at all.
  6. Queen of Hearts – I love this series so freaking much. If you like cozies, particularly that take place in the early 20th century, you should really be reading this one.
  7. Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist – Another series I love. Agatha Raisin is a horrible woman; I don’t know why I like her so much, but I really love her and all of her adventures.
  8. A Storm of Swords – I know Westeros is fiction, but I’m going to count it anyway because why the hell not? I counted Thesolo, after all.
  9. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – Obviously. I don’t even need to say anything else.
  10. The Secret Place – Are you reading Tana French? If not, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. She’s so good, and her settings come alive – they’re as much a character as the people in the books.

That’s it for this week! What about you guys – do you have any favorite books that take place in countries other than where you live?
