Top Ten Tuesday -- Top Ten Favorite Books With European Settings

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you at The Broke and the Bookish!! Each week we will be releasing a top ten book related list for you all to enjoy!
I wanted at first to say French but then I realized I love a few books with Italy in them as well! So I decided to go to European settings so I can pick all the books from there that I love! This is one of the weeks that I am actually really excited to be doing this meme!! I know there are more that I have read and just never listed then on goodreads so I can't remember then but if I do I will add them to the list!
Top Ten Eight Favorite Books with European Settings

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
 1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins -- This is one of the books that makes me want to go to France more than anything, I want to go all around the Quarter mentioned in the book! I wouldn't mind running into an √Čtienne St. Clair either :) (Don't tell the boyfriend)

2. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling -- There is no doubt that this has to go on my list! One, its amazing, two it's set in England, so yes please!!

Italian for BeginnersLast Bite: A Novel of Culinary Romance

3. Italian for Beginners by Kristen Harmel -- This was one of my first Italy setting books and it sprouted me into a big long list of Italy settings I needed to read. I was even saving up money at a point to go over there on my own!

4. Last Bite by Nancy Verde Barr -- I read this book back in 2005 or 2006 I can remember when. I just know it was right around the time I graduated high school. I picked up this book because of the cherries, even though I hate cherries, I knew it was about food, so I had to have it. They end up going to Italy in this book and it is amazing!

Ordinary WorldThe Art of French Kissing

5. Ordinary World by Elisa Lorello -- This is the Sequel to Faking It and even though the first one is not set in Italy, This one ends up in Italy! And as I did the first book, I devoured it, and loved the Italian setting! The cover doesn't do it justice, it's wonderful!

6. The Art of French Kissing by Kristen Harmel -- This is another by her, but instead of Italy it is obviously in France, but it is fantastic too!

P.S. I Love YouTwilight (Twilight, #1)

7. PS I Love You by Cecelia Ahern -- I watched the movie to this before I read the book, but I had to devour the book which is even better (and more sad) than the movie! It is in New York but also goes to Ireland quite a bit through travel or flashbacks!

8. Twilight Series by Stephanie Meyer --  I know this is mainly in Washington, but there is also parts of it that flash to Italy and Europe back in the day and recent times and I really enjoyed reading those parts of it!

Well, that's my list for the week! Hope you all enjoy!

  1. One of my favorite European books was Corelli's Mandolin. I felt like I needed a dictionary on every other page, but everything about that book was beautiful. Great idea for a setting.

    I chose NY, mostly because its home :)

  2. Europe is a great reading setting! I loved HP but I have yet to read majority of others you listed.
