      Hi Kendra! Thanks for your suggestions, I’ll keep them all in mind! I used to live in Sweden, so I’d especially love to tackle the Scandinavian ones 🙂

    Love this! What a great idea! Looking forward to reading many of these. I loved Arundhati Roy’s book, The God of Small Things for India and would love a suggestion for Israel!

      Hi Jennifer, The God of Small Things is a favorite of mine too! Thanks so much for sharing your request for books set in Israel, I’ve added it to my list!

      Hi Kathryn, I’d love to prepare a list of books set in France! It’s certainly in the back of my mind, as I’ve read many great ones over the years 🙂

    I saw your list for 2018 on Pinterest. Kindly tell me why Israel was not included.

      Hi Deborah! Thanks for asking. I could only include 52 countries, so I missed quite a few (over 100 countries)! I’m compiling another list for next year, so will keep your suggestion in mind.

    I have a trip coming up to the southwest of the US and have Barbara Kingsolver and Edward Abbey on my list but would love to see a list with others. You have done the other lists beautifully and have inspired me to continue my reading and traveling journey.

      Hi Autumn, I’m super jealous of your trip! I’d love to start working on some more US centric lists, so thanks so much for your suggestion! Thanks also for your kind words, please do keep me posted if you have any book recommendations I should add! 🙂

    Can you do one for Turkey? I’ve only been reading Elif Shafak books and I would love to find more Turkish authors!

    • Reply Ash at Tale Away February 26, 2018 at 7:40 pm

      Hi Rosie, it’s on the list indeed! Turkey is certainly a part of the world I’d love to explore more, both in books.. and travels too!

    I love expanding my horizons through reading (and making lists!), so your site is an awesome find for me! 🙂 I see that you put out requests for places, but I’m very interested in also seeing a list for Black History books, Poetry collections, and especially celebrating women. Would you be interested in creating to-read lists for any of those topics? Even if the answer is no, I still can’t wait to start on your already published lists! Thanks!

    Happy Reading,

      Hi Kellie, thanks so much for your lovely comment! I’m so happy that you might just find your next book here! I’d absolutely love to keep expanding the lists here in future. I particularly enjoy all the topics you’ve mentioned myself – so would love to look into these themes one day. Do you have any favorites you’d like to share? I’m always trying to expand my reading horizons further too! 🙂

    I recently traveled to Ghana, which I found to be an amazing country. Since my return, I have been reading books set in Ghana. Unfortunately, I am running low on options. I would love to know of more books set in the country.

      Hi SueAn, thanks so much for your request! I’d love to gather a list of books in Ghana, so I’ve put it on my to-do list! Have you read any titles you’d recommend so far?
