Books Set In Another Country

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature once hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl! Each week, a new topic is put into place and bloggers share their top ten (or your own amount) accordingly.

I actually have a lot of books on my TBR that is set in other countries, but I haven’t got round to actually reading them yet, so this list was shortened to just five books that I have! A majority of these books aren’t 100% set in the country, I think in most of them, they often travel to that country or a major part of the novel is set in that country.


The Astonishing Colour of After by Emily X.R. Pan (Taiwan)

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi (Ghana)

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (Afghanistan)

A Golden Age by Tahmima Anam (Bangladesh)

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (Tangier, North Africa)

Have you read any of these yet? What did you think? What books do you recommend?

  1. The Kite Runner is by far one of my favorite books! I read it in high school and absolutely loved it. I’ve been meaning to read A Thousand Splendid Suns by the same author and never get around to it. Hopefully, I can find time for it soon. Great post by the way! I definitely need to read more books set in other countries!
