Hi! I was recently tagged by Cath at the wonderful blog Trust in the Words. Thank you so much for tagging me!
The rules: Choose a selection of countries, and pick your favourite YA book set in each country.
I think this book tag is awesome! Although I had to think awhile about what books I can pick because most of the YA books I’ve read takes place in either USA or UK. I might have to cheat a little bit by choosing a book or two outside of the genre YA. But this tag has made me want to read more YA books outside of USA and UK.
France – Maria Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender
I absolutely adore this book even though it has ghost in it. This book made me want to visit France so badly.
Germany – The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I am pretty sure you have heard of this book. It’s about a little girl called Liesel living in Germany during world war II. If you haven’t read this book yet you totally should, it’s an amazing book.
Kenya – Love, Life and Elephants; An African love story by Daphne Sheldrick
This book is not an Young Adult book but since it takes place in Kenya I had to include it. It is actually a biography and the women who wrote this is amazing. I learned a lot about Kenya and of course about Elephants (and other awesome animals in Kenya) which I am very happy about.
Sweden – The Circle by Mats Strandberg and Sara Bergmark
Finding a book that is set in Sweden wasn’t so hard for me since I live in Sweden so I have read a bunch of Swedish books. I picked The Circle both because it’s translated in English and because it’s an awesome book. It’s about witches, them controlling elements and more fun stuff.
USA – One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington
There’s a ton of books I could have chosen that takes place in the US but I wanted to pick a book who I don’t think I have mentioned here before. This book is about a girl called Sabine and she lives two lives. Every night, one past midnight, Sabine switch her life. I know it’s sounds weird and it’s really hard to explain but it’s a really good book.
Ireland – Artemis Fowler by Eoin Colfer
I read this book awhile ago… I don’t know if the entire book is in Ireland but at least some parts of it is. I remember it was a pretty funny book and involved many different magical creatures.
UK – Half Bad by Sally Green
There was a lot of books to chose from UK too, but I decided to go with Half Bad. It’s a really cool story with witches and what I especially like about this book is that it is kind of hard to tell who are the “good” and who are the “bad”.
So now to the people I tag…
