Top Ten Tuesday: Books Set Outside the US

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays: a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. The topic of July 19, 2016 is: top ten books set outside of the US–by outside the United States, I’m assuming that means anywhere else in the world (since high fantasy worlds are separate?).

Top Ten Tuesday

1. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling — Set in Britain
