Top Ten: Books Set Outside the US

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was a rewind, so I chose to cover July 19th’s list: top ten books set outside the US. Although I mostly read books set in England, I was able to find ten books set wholly (or partly) in ten different countries (and also another planet).
