Top Ten Tuesday: Books that Take Place in Another Country

This one was actually more challenging to come up with than we originally thought it would be! At first we kept finding books that “mostly” took place in another country, but not entirely. But here are our favorites that take place in another country.

Thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for another Top Ten Tuesday!


Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse (India)

The Keep by Jennifer Egan (Germany)

The People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks (several European countries)

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (Spain)

Censoring an Iranian Love Story by Shahriar Mandanipour (Iran)

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (Spain)

Kim by Rudyard Kipling (India)

Harry Potter (any of the ones in the series) by J. K. Rowling (U.K.)

My Struggle by Karl Ove Knausgaard (Norway)
