Top 10 Foreign Setting Books I Want to Read

5 comments


I've come to the depressing conclusion that I am a "Lucy"- and not the adventurous one from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Think more A Room with a View, but minus all the romance. That is, while I love the idea of jetting off to travel or teach English in another country for a year, the second I start running the logistics in my mind, I know I won't do it, no matter how much I want to.

I will do some major traveling one day, but for now, I will content myself with books. Because books make everything better. :)




I'm not a big non-fiction reader, but I love getting immersed in the landscape and culture of another country. Thus, 8/10 of these are fiction, and two are non-fiction memoirs that sounded really fun.

What about you guys? Do you have any favorite books set in other countries? Or any non-fiction recommendations?

That's it for this round of 10! Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for this week's Updates! In which I read books. ;)

  1. Love love LOVE The Alchemist! Some readers don't care for Coelho's style of writing; it's very simplistic, as if his stories are really fables. But I love the message behind The Alchemist, and I breezed through it in just two days.

    1. I'm glad you liked The Alchemist! I chose it mainly for the setting, but a good story and characters never hurt, right? ;)

  2. Try 'Between Shades of Gray' for some historical culture shock

    2. I thought about adding Between Shades of Gray, but... I don't want to visit Siberia. I'm bad about cold weather. ^^; And thank you! I meant to be all done with the design changes, but the little things aren't as bad once the main overhaul is done. :)
