“Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here atThe Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.”
Those paragraphs were taken from The Broke and the Bookish. For more information, here’s the post.
The bloggers have changed this meme a little bit because some people say that, sometimes, it’s hard to choose 10 books for a theme, so the bloggers added this: 10 is just a suggestion to aim for if you can hit it — do a list of 3 or 5 or 20 on your list. Your post, your choice! Really, it’s just a starting off point. We realize 10 can be hard and we don’t at all always expect it. And we always thumbs up anyone putting a different yet related spin on the topic to make it work for them!
I think I’ll start doing a list of 5 books!
The theme for this week is: Ten Books Set Outside The US!
Harry Potterseries, by J.K. Rowling: United Kingdom
Red Rising, by Pierce Brown: Mars ( oh yes, it’s not only outside USA, but it’s also set in another planet!)
Between the Shades of Gray, by Ruta Sepetys: Lithuania and Siberia.
The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak: Germany
Cinder, by Marissa Meyer (I haven’t read it yet):It’s most likely that this story takes place in Beijing, China, because, in this book, there is a fictional name, New Beijing.
Well, that’s it for today! I hope I post something tomorrow!
