These contemporaries will take you from a castle in England in Me Before You, to the shores of New Zealand in Antipodes! They are both unique in content but the beauty of the countries in which they are set will make you want to book your flights! I loved each of these books because they were journey’s to self discovery.
Oh my goodness the past couple of years has produced some amazing YA Historical Fictions. I loved each and every one of the adventures found in these books! You will find Historical Realism in jungles of northern Africa in Soldier Boy, Folklore among the countryside of Hungary in Blood Rose Rebellion and Lost Crow Conspiracy, and Murder Mysteries with Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula. Let’s not forget the highly intense journey out of War torn East Prussia in Salt to the Sea and a trip of self-discovery across Europe in The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. You will not be disappointed with this collection of YA Historical Fiction reads!
These YA Fantasy reads will keep you on your toes. Book of Lies and Spellbook of the Lost and Found will teach you about Irish folklore and fairy tales. They both include stories set in Ireland with magic to tell their tales. The Bone Season series is one of my all time favorites set in the streets of London where clairvoyants are being imprisoned and it is up to one girl and the Mime Order to save them. If you haven’t read these books definitely add them to your list!
What are some of your YA novels set in other countries?
Ahh! Thanks for the tag! This one looks like so much fun!
There are so many of these that I didn’t know were set in another country! I really want to read The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and Stalking Jack the Ripper. Great post 🙂
