The best part about reading is traveling somewhere else while staying right where you are.
I have created a tag in which I list a country, and then tell you what my favorite book that is set in that country is.
Get it? Got it? Good!
For this I must say Just One Day by Gayle Forman. Okay, there’s just one day that’s actually spent in Paris, but it’s the most important day of the book. This is actually one of my favorite books of all time, and I enjoyed it so much more than If I Stay.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I mean, did you actually think I would pick anything else? This book doesn’t give a description of modern day Germany, but it’s certainly a blast into the past.
The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. BECAUSE WILL HERONDALE FOREVER AND ALWAYS.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer sends us into the future. Who knows if future China will really be teeming with cyborgs and androids!
Tiger Moon by Antonia Michaelis is one of the rare YA books set in India. I really enjoyed this one, and I think anyone can get a good feel for India through it.
