Around the World in YA

Around the World in YA-2

Hello everyone! Before I continue, I just want to say thank you for bearing with me. I’m in the middle of changing themes and colors on my blog! Along with that and job orientation/training, I haven’t been able to read much (boo) so I have yet to post a review (even more boo). Anyway, today I’ll be doing the Around the World in YA tag. Thank you Becca @ Becca and Books for creating and tagging me! It looks like so much fun. A lot of people travel for the summer … I’m not one of them lol so I live vicariously through fictional characters! I love reading books with a wide diversity of cultures and locations!

The rules:  

List a country, and then show which favorite book of yours is set in that country is. You can use the countries I used, add your own, or use completely different ones!


die for me

The Die for Me trilogy by Amy Plum is set in Paris, France! This trilogy was such a great read and those book covers are gorgeous!

his fair assassin

His Fair Assassin’s trilogy by Robin LaFevers (amazing by the way) takes places in France, too. However, it takes place ins Brittany, not Paris!


infernal devices

My favorite trilogy, The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare, takes place all over London! Take me there!


book thief

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak takes place in Germany! I don’t particularly love that era in Germany but still.


just one year

Just One Day by Gayle Forman actually takes place at different locations in Europe but most importantly in Amsterdam.

South Africa

Fiela's Child

Fiela’s Child by Dalene Matthee (required reading in high school haha) took me to South Africa! It was one of my favorite required readings!

    Love your new signature Anjie! I think the blue and yellow complement each other really well 🙂 Fiela’s Child sounds really interesting; I don’t think I’ve read a book that takes place in South Africa before.
    Thanks for tagging me! 🙂

    • Thank you so much!! I love that combo 😀
      It was, I’m glad it was a required reading. I probably wouldn’t have read it otherwise because it’s not well known.
      No problem! Can’t wait to see what countries you’ve read about!

    I love this idea. I might struggle to come up with books though. I didn’t know Amy Plums books were set in Paris. I need to read them!

  9. What a fun tag! I think for Paris I would choose Anna and the French Kiss because Stephanie Perkins described it so well. I have not read any of Amy Plum’s books but I bet they’re really good. I really enjoyed The Infernal Devices trilogy and I enjoyed reading a little bit about England.

    Also, good luck on your job orientation! I had mine yesterday and I’m still not done haha. I still have more training to do.

    • Yay! Thank you so much!! I can’t wait to finish, there’s so many things to change haha but I love making little graphics so it’s not as bad.
      You can always use different countries! Becca, who created it, used China and India but I didn’t have any of those haha.
