Are you participating in the #TraveltheWorldinBooks readathon or challenge? Are you still figuring out what to read, or simply curious about where some stories take place?
You can check out my Book Map for the settings of all my reads. I also invite you to check out my sidebar where I have a drop down "Travel the World in Books" which lists the country settings.
In this post, I'm pulling together some of my favourite book, or reads that I consider "notable" and worth reading (so far!). Maybe you'll discover some new reads for your challenge TBR!
Edit: So I just came back from GirlXOXO's post on the Global Reading Exposure Challenge and realize that this list is just a perfect response. She asks that we share a book that takes place in a region other than where we're living. It would be impossible for me to share just one, there are just too many!
