Young Adult Fiction Set All Around the Globe


“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.”

― James Baldwin

Every book opens another door to a whole new world, with new sights, sounds and wonder beyond your wildest imagination (sounds cheesy but it's true).

So here are a list of places/countries which you can explore through books, listed in alphabetical order. Whether you live in New York, Singapore or the Federated States of Micronesia, there are some real exotic countries out there for you to travel to through the words of talented authors:














Los Angeles: Vain by Fisher Amelie 











These 24 books would be a good way for you to kick-start your worldly travels. Not all are contemporary and hence, these books will offer you peeks into a country's past and future.

Leave your footprints all around the world from the comfort of your armchair.

The world is yours for the reading.

  1. Ahh this post is amazing!! I love books set in foreign countries because most are set in the US :/ Ink was one of my favourite reads this year because there were soo many references to Japanese culture in it. Also that quote at the beginning is my new favourite quote!!

    1. Yay! Thanks, Laura :-) Glad to hear that about INK-- Japanese culture is so mysterious and wonderful, there should be more of it in YA!
