  1. Great entries. I’ll have try some of your recommendations. I’ll read anything set in Florida, California or New York but I also like Rebecca M. Hales mysteries set in the U.S. Virgin Islands, particularly Aground On St. Thomas. I love Agatha Christies books when they are set in Britain but even more so when she sets them in Egypt or Barbados.

  2. These are great choices! I don’t think I’ve ever read a book based solely on its setting, but I certainly hope to do that in the future. I think it would be a fun way to learn about places around the world.

    1. Thank you! I agree, it would be a great way to learn more about the world. I sometimes read books based on big cities such as New York, Paris or London, but I should find more set in smaller countries!

  3. I hardly ever papayy attention to the country it’s set in since most of the books I read have fictional settings but I try to diversify where the novel takes place. I would like to try to read more books that take place outside of London or the u.s
