Top Ten Tuesday- Books Set Outside the US

Hey everyone, I'm back with a new post, and a new meme! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the "Broke and the Bookish". I may not be participating in each post, but this week's list was about books, so I decided to join in.

 "Top Ten Books Set outside the US that we've enjoyed":

Inferno by Dan Brown- this book was set in Florence, and although it is the last in the Robert Langdon series, I think I enjoyed it the most.

Almost French by Sarah Turnbull- Set mostly in France, this memoir takes us through the cultural differences between Australia and France from the view of an expat.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak- This book is set in Nazi Occupied Germany, and it's one of my all time favourites. Although the book is slow, it is moving, and tells a great story.

No Stars at the Circus by Mary Finn- This is another book about Nazi Occupation, but it's told from the perspective of a young Jew. It's a middle grade novel that still excellently portrays the horrible conditions of those dark times.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen- This classic is set in 18th Century England, and tells a beautiful story. Challenging societal norms of the time, Austen communicates greatly the true meaning of love.

I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai- This memoir is another one of my favourites. Set in Pakistan and England, this memoir tells the story of Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai.

Spilled Water by Sally Grindley- This is a middle grade novel that I absolutely loved when I was younger. It's set in China and shows us the life of young children sold into domestic servitude.

Three cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson- This book is another memoir set in Pakistan- and I loved it as a younger girl.

Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein- Set in Occupied Europe, this book is a sequel to "Code Name Verity". I liked it a lot better than it's prequel as it moved much faster.

Chocolat by Joanne Harris- This book is set in a small French town and speaks of breaking the rules, and challenging religion.
