Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.
Well, this was an eye-opening TTT! I haven’t read a lot of books outside of the United States, apparently. Most of them involve someone from the US heading overseas on a trip of some kind, and luckily I have a Goodreads shelf specifically for that. I decided to split this TTT up into books I’ve read that take place outside the US and books on my TBR. Definitely link me up with yours!
Wanderlost by Jen Malone /// This was such a sweet story. I read it so quickly because it was just too adorable. I shipped it reaaaal hard. I shipped it hard all over Europe.
Two Summers by Aimee Friedman /// I was super looking forward to this book because I love parallel life stories, but it didn’t completely wow me. The main character goes to Paris in “one of her lives” and has a few surprises along the way. Definitely glad I read it and would definitely recommend it!
Come Away With Me by Karma Brown /// Ugh this book made me uuuugly cry. Very emotional read but involves a lot of international travel as a woman moves on from a loss.
Anna and the French Kiss (and Isla) by Stephanie Perkins /// I loved this companion series so much and ANNA is one of my all-time favorites. This book, like ISLA, is set at a boarding school in Paris. Shippy and fluffy and completely glorious. I need a reread soon…
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill /// This adorable fluff book came into my life thanks to my TBTB Secret Santa one year and I really loved it. (Completely underrated book, in my opinion.) It takes place during a class trip to London and has such a great hate-to-love romance.
Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch /// I haven’t seen great reviews for this one 🙁 I was super looking forward to it and will probably give it a try at some point anyways! The cover is irresistible.
Love, Lucy by April Lindner /// This is supposed to be a retelling of A Room with a View, something I’ve never read before, so we’ll see! It sounds cute – a summery romance in Italy.
Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard /// I definitely haven’t read a book that takes place in Central America yet, so this will be a nice change from the Eurocentric books I’ve read in the past. I’ve heard lots of good things about this book but still feel like it’s a bit underrated (maybe just because it’s older?).
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson /// I’ve been talking about this duo for a while because I loooove the redesigned covers and preordered them. The story itself involves travel around Europe and I’m super here for that! I need more Maureen Johnson after only reading one of her short stories.
London Belongs to Us by Sarra Manning /// I’m pretty sure the physical copy of this releases in the US in November, but it looks like the kindle copy is available now? Not sure, but this sounds super cute. She travels to different parts of the city and meets lots of people on her journey.
Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse /// This is a second chance romance set in Tokyo, so it simultaneously sounds like something right up my alley and something I’ve never read before. I’m really excited about the setting. AND they only have seven days before she moves back to the States, so let me get it.
