Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is:
Top Ten Books Set Outside The US I enjoyed
I thought I was going to struggle with this a little bit, but given my history with reading mysteries, I found 10 books in no time flat:) Here is my list.
Angels & Demons by Dan Brown. Set in Italy, specifically, Vatican City, although that’s technically a country, so just Vatican City:)
The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown. Set in Paris and England.
Heller by J.D. Nixon. To be honest, I took my until the third book in this series to figure out where this was set, but I’m now positive it’s Australia.
The Third Secret by Steve Berry. This book is set in Vatican City, but the MC travels to Bosnia and Romania as well.
The Romanov Prophecy by Steve Berry. About 90% of the Cotton Malone series is outside the US, but this is not a Cotton Malone book. This book is set in Russia and is a must read.
Congo by Michael Crichton. A writer way ahead of his time. I think the title tells you where the book is set:)
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. Jurassic Park is an island off the coast of Costa Rica. And a scary place:)
Deception Point by Dan Brown. This intense thriller is set in the Arctic Circle.
Playing for Pizza by John Grisham. I personally loved this book (surprised by the low rating), set in Parma, Italy, where the people are as good as the pizza they serve.
On Dublin Street by Samantha Young. This book was set in Scotland.
What’s on your TTT?
