Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish". Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
July 19: Ten Books Set Outside The US
This should be an easy topic for me since I read a lot of books from outside of the US. However, there are so many to choose from, so it's not that easy again. So, I tried to put some of my favourite books from all the continents on here. Let's see.
Austen, Jane "Persuasion" - 1817
Mann, Thomas "Buddenbrooks: The Decline of a Family" (German: Buddenbrooks) - 1901
Pamuk, Orhan "My Name is Red" (Turkish: Benim Adim Kirmizi) - 1998
Le Clézio, Jean-Marie Gustave "The African" (French: L'Africain) - 2004
