Top Ten Tuesday ~ Books Set in Europe




Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish



I absolutely love, love, love Paris and Venice and so I decided to do a setting in Europe. I was thinking of beach settings but I'm sure we've recently done a similar topic not that long ago, since it's currently Summer in the US.

I don't know very many of those but I love the topic, good one!

Alyssaz said...

Just reading this list makes me want to travel around Europe!

Sara (Page Sage) said...

Great list! I love DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE, HARRY POTTER, NAME OF THE STAR, and THE BOOK THIEF. Their settings are so vivid!

My TTT

CarrieAnne said...

I wish there were more YA set in Europe being published these days, esp. historicals. Not only is it one of my areas of historical expertise and greatest interest, but it's also kind of boring to only read books set in the country the writer comes from.

Lanaia M. said...

I also chose setting in Europe! We have quite similar list, I love it haha! :)

My Top Ten Tuesday.

Paperback Princess said...

Visited you back, your right we had a few of the same books the same. I've got some of those books you listed in my TBR pile, Gail Carriger and Cassandra Clare's series.


Thanks for visiting!

Paperback Princess said...

Carrie Anne visited you back, I loved your topic.

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

HARRY POTTER! Whee! But seriously, sorry...fangirl moment just happened haha I also love seeing Heist Society on your list! I'm really a big fan of that series, and I think it's massively underrated! :)

Paperback Princess said...

Sara totally agree with you, I think that the Book Thief and Daughter of Smoke & Bone is fairly a close second to the HP series, I don't think anyone can top the settings in the HP series though :D


Thanks for stopping by, I visited your blog right back and commented too :D

Paperback Princess said...

I would love to visit Europe, it just sounds so dramatic and beautiful everywhere in Europe, but I love to visit Venice and Paris the most. I tried to find your blog but couldn't from your comment, so if you'd like to link back to your TTT post, I'd gladly stop by.


Thanks for visiting!

Paperback Princess said...

Thanks Greg! I'd love to check out your TTT post if you've got one, please link back so I can visit you right back :D

Greg Hill said...

I didn't do a TTT but I did do a Teaser Tuesday, if you want to check it out. It's here http://greglhill.blogspot.com/
Thanks, have a great day!

Paperback Princess said...

Thanks Greg, checking it out now. Thanks for the visit :D

Lauren @ Books, Tea & Me said...

I love books set in Europe. Looks like I need to check some of these out :)

Quinn's Book Nook said...

Ooo, I love books set in Europe, especially the UK. Of course I love HP, and The Name of the Star is great! I'm a sucker for ghost stories. I really want to read The Girl with the Steel Corset. I was in B&N the other day, and I saw the third book in the series, but they didn't have the first two :( I would have bought the whole series, if they had them.
I have Venom out from the library right now, and I can't wait to read that. And I still need to read the Laini Taylor books. I'm slacking!

Jillyn said...

The Harry Potter books made my list too. Another book set in England that I really liked was Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. Great list!

My TTT.

heartJESS said...

I love this list, especially how you broke it down by country! I've got Luxe, but I haven't read it yet.

Here's my TTT

Stop by my giveaway if you have a moment!

Jess @ Such A Novel Idea

Krystianna said...

I love the Harry Potter series! I really want to check out The Luxe books.

Saru Garg said...

Great list! I did a similar theme and can't believe I forgot Daughter of Smoke and Bone!

My TTT:

Amy Logg said...

Yay Harry Potter made your list! At least one of those books makes most of my lists. I love books set in Europe - they always have a more romantic dreamy sort of feeling...or maybe I'm just being weird lol :D

artsy musings said...

I just finished Heist Society and I liked all the places Kat went to. Yay for Harry Potter. Rest umm, haven't read as yet...


Also, you should totally read Just One Day, it's set in Europe and America and it's a favorite book of mine. Love it.

Carina Olsen said...

Harry Potter. <3 Sigh. Need to re-read those :) Ohh, everyone is talking about The Book Thief. I think I need to read it soon, maybe ;p Awesome top ten :)

Alyssaz said...

Sunrise Avenue



Thanks for asking!

Lyn Kaye said...

Name of the Star was an oddly fun book.

Paperback Princess said...

Amy don't worry that's not weird at all, I totally feel the same way as you do, it's nearly like Europe is like a dream-like place with gondolas, old historic churches/museums etc

Paperback Princess said...

I'm yet to finish the Luxe series but hopefully you enjoy it, I have started to love historical fiction lately :)

Paperback Princess said...

Lyn I can't wait to read book 2.

Paperback Princess said...

Jess I do hope you get a chance to read Luxe series, it really is a great series :D Visiting you right back ;)

Paperback Princess said...

Don't worry Quinn there's sooooo many touted series out there that I haven't read as yet, like Tahereh Mafi's (although I've got both books), Leigh Bardugo's and oh my the list just goes on, and I just have to really stop and just read from my personal pile!

Paperback Princess said...

Lauren if you have other books to recommend that are set in Europe I'd love to pick up more books :D

Paperback Princess said...

Alyssa visited you right back I loved the setting you chose, original :D The books listed are also fantastic!

Paperback Princess said...

Lauren I can't find a website address for your profile, please link me to your survey as I'd love to come and visit and have a read of your answers too :D

Paperback Princess said...

Lauren did you do a TTT post? I can't find a website address for your profile so if you'd like to link me back I can visit :D

Lauren @ Books, Tea & Me said...

Yeah, for sure! My url is booksteame.com :)

Kate @ whYAnot said...

Daughter of Smoke and Bone - I LOVE that book. And the setting does make it all the more authentic. I have a copy of the girl with the steel corset. I need to read it! Great list.

Paperback Princess said...

Thanks Kate! I'm yet to read the sequel to Daughter of Smoke & Bone, even though I loved it, I've just had a huge TBR pile and haven't gotten around to it :(


The Girl with the Steel Corset's trilogy is finished I believe and all books are released, so you can read the entire series, one book after the other :D I love reading series' like that.

Paperback Princess said...

Thanks Lauren, love your choice of setting, I was going to choose the beach too as I love summer and the beach, but I had thought that I recently chosen that for a recent TTT topic already.


Great book choices :D

Kate @ whYAnot said...

I love to do that too! Except when the series is too long... I tried to read Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series back to back.... there's over 20 books. I gave up at around 17 or so :P


Days of Blood and Starlight is great too. I adore it I'm at the stage where I'm almost counting down the days till book 3 comes out :P

Erin said...

Good answers. Personally I couldn't think of anything so didn't participate in this weeks
