Hello everyone! It’s that time of the week again! Top Ten Tuesday is a book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Basically, you get a different bookish topic every Tuesday, and you comprise a list of ten (or however many you’re able to list) relating to said topic.
This topic is so great in so many ways. Much of my reading revolves around stories set in the United States, and I’ve been wanting to diversify my taste- the first step involves expanding my reading with regards to setting. There are bound to be so many amazing books out there that aren’t set in the US! Since I haven’t read very many at all, I’m going to tell you six books I have read, and six that I really want to read!
Books I Have Read:
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini: set mostly in Afghanistan, a little in Pakistan
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor: Prague
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi: Iran
All the Light We Cannot See: France and Germany
Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith: England
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh: The Middle East – specifically Persia
Books on my TBR:
Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed: Pakistan (how haven’t I read this yet LOL)
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera: Czechoslovakia
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri: India
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: Unsure of the specifics, but set in Europe
