  11. I guess I never realized Big Little Lies takes place in Australia. That makes it that much more interesting for me to pick up. I learned that I read A LOT about England - haha.

    1. I loved the Sydney setting! And yes England- same here!!

  12. Since it seems like I may not get through my bucket list to do more traveling unless I win a contest, reading about other countries from books sounds like a fab thing to do, and you've given some great choices. Hugs...RO

    1. I know, I don't think I'm gonna make it all the places I want to go either! Better get reading I guess :)

  13. It's amazing how varied locations can be. I was surprised when I did my list that I had so many books to choose from. Although I just realized I left the UK off my list! Love this list, Greg😁

  14. I think I read a lot of books set in England, so it's great for me to see everyone's lists this weeks! Canada is particularly an interesting one, I don't see many stories set in Canada.

    1. I want to read more set in Canada too. I do read a lot set in England and never seem to tire of that country!

      Delete
  15. I need to read at least one book by Kelly Armstrong since her thrillers take place in my country. I keep telling myself I need to read more Canadian authors!

  17. What a diverse list! I don't think I've ever read a book set in Africa-- it's something that I definitely want to do more since I know so little about the entire continent.

  23. Ooo! You’ve got a wide variety!

  30. That cover of Love and Gelato is just amazing! :-) Fab list!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Big Little Lies made my list too - I really liked the book setting for Australia. I'm watching the tv show right now and I'm not sure what to think about the setting change, but the scenery sure is beautiful. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Big Little Lies made it onto my list as well. :-) The only other book I've read from this list is The Breakdown, which I enjoyed much more than her first novel.

    I added City of the Lost, The Blue, and What She Saw to my "To Read" list. I don't think I'd heard of any of these before, so I'm glad you shared them here! :-) (I'm especially thankful for The Blue because I can use it for one of the PopSugar Reading Challenge categories!)

  33. Heh heh, Tintin could probably fill this list right up, I envy how much he and Snowy get to travel :D

  34. Oh wow, this reminds me that Love & Gelato is still sitting on my kindle waiting to be read. That cover for Kalahari is beautiful too...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oooh The Blue has quite a fascinating locale! I had no idea that Vitro was set elsewhere either, I want to read that one (and Kalahari, of course). Great choices!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would have had such a hard time with this topic. I did enjoy the Armstrong series though.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I want to read Love and Gelato, and The Blue looks good also!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. The Blue really caught my eye because of its location! I also want to read Love and Gelato!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh, I should definitely read Love & Gelato...I even know roughly where my copy is. Have a wonderful week. - Katie

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is probably one of the more impressive reading lists I have seen. Tibet. Look at that! And the Blue has all sorts of interesting locals as well.

    ReplyDelete
  41. The School for Unusual Girls is a wicked cool title!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow I haven't read any of these yet but wow sure is a vast collection of interesting locals!

  44. I haven't read any of these yet, but Love & Gelato is on my TBR for so long now. Every time I see this cover it makes me happy :D

  45. Interesting! I haven't heard of most of these! I love these TTT posts because they give me so many new books to check out. (My bank account, though, may speak differently on the matter.)

    ReplyDelete
  46. YES! Love and Gelato!! Not only is the cover cute, the story sounds darling. Like you mentioned, I'm also excited about the follow up Jenna wrote too. L&G is a book that's still on my must-read TBR... but here's hoping I actually read it during these upcoming warmer months. :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Greg.

  47. City of the Lost looks good... I will have to look it up! And Love and Gelato! Totally forgot that one! ;) Great list here!
