Around the World in YA Books Tag

I doubt I’ll catch up on all these tagged posts by the end of the year but no matter. Here’s another for your enjoyment.

I was tagged by the Orang-utan Librarian back in November. Gracias! Though I tried to find the original post (mostly out of curiousity), I was unable to, but I did stumble upon this post on B&N Reads that looks like it could have been the original. It lists 8 countries with books set in them and the majority of bloggers I’ve seen do this post list 8 as well. Coincidence or no? Hmm… Anyways, the rules:

The rules are simple. List a country, and then show which favorite book of yours is set in that country. You can use the countries I have used, add your own, or use completely different ones!

I’m going to divert from the rules a bit. I’ll list books set in the countries featured below, however, they are not all my favorites. Also, I haven’t read them all and they aren’t all YA books, as the title of this post indicates.
