I was tagged by Raven over at Dreamy Addictions to do the Around the World Book Tag. First off I want to thank her for tagging me. I thought this was a pretty cool tag to do as it involves one of my favorite past times, traveling. So if you haven’t checked out her blog yet, please do so now, she’s great!
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!
One of my favorite adult mystery series is the Sano Ichiro series by Laura Joh Rowland. It is set in feudal Japan and follows Sano Ichiro a police detective for the emperor. It is politically gripping, filled with loads of mystery and drama! You guys should check it out. Click the cover to head to the GoodReads page.
Soulless is one of my favorite books from the Parisol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger. It is based in England in the early 1900’s I think. It features vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural beings. Click the cover to head over to the GoodReads page.
Even though it is not fully based on the real life Russia, Shadow and Bone from the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo is very heavily Russian influenced. With the style of words, the architecture of the buildings as well as the culture, food, and clothing are all influenced by Russia. Click the cover to head over to the GoodReads page!
Based in a futuristic China, Cinder from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer is a great book. Set in New Beijing of the future, we get a new spin on the classic fairytale of Cinderalla with asian influence. Food, clothing, culture, and politics are all reflective to China and other parts of Asia as well! Click on the cover to head over to the GoodReads page!
Legacy of Kings from the Blood of Gods and Royals series by Eleanor Herman is based in the ancient Macedon which we now all call Greece. It follows Alexander the great as he navigates being a teenager and future king of the world. Not only do we get to learn about ancient Greece, but also about the politics, and philosophies as well.
