I absolutly love reading a book that’s set in a different place. I know what it’s like to live here in Canada. I want something different. I’m also getting a little bored of people living in the US. It’s all the same and I’m looking for something different. Plus the majority of books take place in the US. It’s overdone.
If I can’t physically go their myself then I want to experience a new culture by reading about it. I want to feel like I’m in a new place! I really like it when authors add a little bit of a different language too. That’s pretty cool. I just want to be anywhere but here when I read, is that so wrong?
Here’s some books set in some cool and exciting places:
- Tiger’s Curse – Colleen Houck
- The Girl of Fire and Thorns – Rae Carson
- Seraphina – Rachel Hartman
Seriously. Go check out those books! What other books have you guys read that take places in cool places?
