[Top Ten Tuesday] books set outside the U.S.

I’m linking up with The Broke and the Bookish (as always) for Top Ten Books Set Outside The U.S. It is so hard to find books that aren’t based in either the U.S., England, or Scotland. Please let me know of any books you know of that aren’t one of those three in the comments! 🙂


This was actually really hard because there are SO many books that have at least partial settings in the U.S., but here is practically the only ten I could find that weren’t in fantasy realms (and even then…)

  1. The Cuckoo’s Calling: London, Kentigern Gardens, Chelsea
  2. Doon, Destined for Doon, Shades of Doon: Scotland, magical Scotland realm
  3. The Kite Runner: Kabul, Afghanistan
  4. Macbeth: Scotland
  5. Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, Clockwork Princess: London, England, Whales
  6. The Picture of Dorian Gray: London, England
  7. Anna and the French Kiss: France
  8. A Tale of Two Cities: France, England
  9. The Night Circus: travels including (NY,) London, Paris(, Boston)
  10. Me Before You: U.K, Switzerland


And that’s it! What books have you read that take place outside of the U.S.? Feel free to leave your TTT in the comments!

Love, Aubrey

    • It’s set outside of the U.S. I wouldn’t say it is super accurate, and I *did have some issues with it, but you should check it out! It’s really interesting and reinforced my want to go to school in France for a year. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    • You should check them out! Yeah. He still seems to have a narrow world view at time and was just sucking up to the Scottish king for Macbeth, but I still really enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
