Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl to bring bookish friends together. A new topic is posted each week.
Most of the books I read are from another country, since I’m norwegian. But I’ll include more books that aren’t placed in the US/America, since that’s where most of the authors I read are from.
Kafka on the Shore and Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
- Absoloutly worth reading, the writing, the characters, the plot all amazing
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
- Kabul, Afghanistan
- Haven’t read the whole book, only long excerpts for class, but it’s heartwrenching and I have to pick up the whole book soon
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
- Alaskan wilderness, USA
- Okay book, based on a better story
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
- Pacific Ocean, with a Tamil boy
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
- Historial fiction from nazi germany with a girl who steals books, her parents taken away to concentration camp.
Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn
- A fantasy book I read as a child and loved, but I can’t vouch for how good it is since it was so long ago
The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
- Barcelona, Spain
- Gothic mystery
I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
- Non-fiction and biographical book of Malala’s life in Swat Valley in Pakistan and how she got shot in the head fighting for her education
The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
- Venice, Italy
Love Zafon! What a lovely list. My TTT: https://mwgerard.com/top-ten-tuesday-books-that-take-place-in-another-country/
Great list! I love The Kite Runner, Life of Pi and The Book Thief. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of any of those!
