Let’s go and travel and read about other places outside the United States!  Well, admittedly, I read a lot of historical romance so it does mean that I read a lot of books SET outside the US.  I’ll try to vary it a little bit and not just say London. *wink

    I need to read the Star-Touched Queen! It’s so incredible how authors have begun using non-Western societies as inspiration for their fantasy novels; The Wrath and the Dawn did a particularly wonderful job of incorporating Middle Eastern culture into its otherwise fantasy-setting. Six of Crows was also such a fantastic novel. I, unfortunately, haven’t read a TON of books set outside the US – I really need to start expanding my reading more. 🙁

    • Yes, there are a lot of books coming out that are NOT set in the US or a dystopia like US, so it IS good for us!

      I haven’t read the Wrath and the Dawn yet but I heard it’s really, really good!

      THE STAR-TOUCHED QUEEN IS SOOOO GOOD!!

    • Thank you, Leslie! I know Anna and the French Kiss is a favorite but I really didn’t like it as much. 🙂 I only picked it for this post because I didn’t want to share books all set in London/England 🙂

    How to Woo a Reluctant Lady and that whole series by Sabrina Jeffreys is excellent! I read a lot of historical romance & most is set in England or Scotland. Additionally, if you haven’t read any Laura Florand books, they are all set in France and so, so good!
