Top Ten Tuesdays: Foreign Country Books

This week's Top Ten Tuesday has us pick a favorite setting and make a list of the books that go with.  I decided to do books that take place in foreign countries because I like being able to go to a different place.  Surprisingly enough, I do not have a passport because I have never been to a foreign country--just in books :)

Top Ten Books that I Love in Foreign Countries

1. Anne of Green Gables series--really...anything by L.M. Montgomery--all of her books take place in or around Prince Edward Island

2. Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society...which takes place on the Channel Islands

3. Angels and Demons--takes place primarily in and around Vatican City

4. Da Vinci Code--takes place in Paris, France

5. Jane Austen books--all in England :)

6. The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas--Germany/Poland (not sure because the book really doesn't specify)

7. Cry the Beloved Country--South Africa

Ok now I duplicate countries because I can't think of other non-in those countries

8. A Tale of Two Cities--England and France (though mostly France)

9. Harry Potter--England/fantasy world

10. Downburst--half US/half Canada

A really interesting list of top ten novels set in favourite locations. It's a great way to get to know a place, isn't it?
