Top Ten Tuesday: March 27, 2018

March 27, 2018     The Bluestocking Bookworm     Books, Reading

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Please take a moment to pop over and say hi!

I have missed a fair number of Top Ten Tuesdays, and that makes me super sad. But this week’s topic is one I am very excited about. Let me just point out that as a Canadian, I could have cheated and used books set in the US, but I didn’t. As always, in no specific order!

Top Ten Six Books Set In Other Countries


[Spain] Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
[France] The Painted Girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan
[Scotland] Outlander by Diana Gabaldon


[Sweden] Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist – This book has a lot of triggering content.
[South Korea] Rebel Seoul by Axie Oh – This book is set in the future, but it is too good to leave off the list!
[Czech Republic] Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Honorable Mentions: Chocolat by Joanne Harris (France), The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (Afghanistan)

Four Books Set in Canada You Should Read

So I know that Canada is where I live. But a lot of my readers aren’t from here, and I wanted to share some love for books that are set in this great country of mine!

bitten by kelley armstrong

Strangers by David A. Robertson
Bitten by Kelley Armstrong – Starts in Canada then moves elsewhere
The Break by Katherena Vermette
The Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay – Starts in Canada then moves elsewhere

Honorable mentions: The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow, Scion of the Fox by S.M. Beiko (I haven’t read this one yet, but it is set in my city!), The Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

  1. Outlander was on my list too! Such a good one! I’ve never read Smoke & Bone, but it’s been on my tbr for forever and I didn’t realize it took place in another country. Now I want to read it even more! And oh my gosh, I’ve been dying to read Bitten for ages because I love the TV show. Have you seen it? So good!!!

  2. Oooh Daughter of Smoke and Bone! It’s been so long since I read it, but I remember how gorgeous I found the setting to be. I really want to read Bitten, too, since I’ve read some of Armstrong’s YA books and enjoyed them!
