[Top 10 Tuesday is a book blog meme hosted by the wonderful The Broke and the Bookish because who doesn’t love top 10 lists!]
It’s time for another Top Ten! This week’s topic is Ten Books Outside of the US.
Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
Despite not having finished the series, it’s still one of my favourites to read and imagine the wonderful world of Hogwarts.
Asking For It by Louise O’Neill
Set in a small Irish town, O’Neill explores issues of online sexual harassment that affect everyone.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Will and Louisa wouldn’t be the same without their lovely English accents. I think it gives them a gentleness that no North American accent ever could.
Secret Daughter by Shilpi Gowda
I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of the US and India about two families who are forever connected without knowing it.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen
The classic English tale with a brain-eating twist.
Maus I & II by Art Spiegelman
Maus should be required reading for high school students around the world.
I am Mala by Mala Yousafzai
This is an incredible example of bravery for the modern world and modern girl.
The Girl with Seven Names by Hyeonseo Lee
This memoir taught me the injustice North Koreans faced both inside and out of the country.
Geisha, A Life by Mineko Iwasaki
Celebrated as the most successful Geiko of her time, she recalls her privileged upbringing to the formal customs and culture of being a professional Geisha.
Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
Rachel Chu doesn’t know what she’s getting into when she agrees to spend the summer in China with her boyfriend. The boyfriend, she finds out later, who is heir to one of the most massive fortunes in the country.
