B.O.B Fictional World Travel

Bout of Books 14 kicked off today (I'm super excited!) and today is also the start of the mini-challenges!  There is still time to sign up for the reading challenge as well.  Simply go here!
Our first challenge is hosted by Between Library Shelves and is focused on travel...something else I totally love :)  Here are the rules for the challenge:
List 3-6 books of fiction that take place in countries other than where you are currently residing.  Post on whatever media outlet you have access to and display your post as creatively as you feel inclined to.  Don't forget to link back to BLS!
Here are my fictional travels...

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden...set in Japan 

44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith...set in Scotland

The House of Special Purpose by John Boyne...set in Russia

Girl with the Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier...set in the Netherlands

The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian...set in Syria
Golden Boy by Tara Sullivan...set in Tanzania
A world map showing each place in relation to each other...all of the settings are in red.  Clearly, I need to visit South America...

So, where have you traveled with your reading?

Happy reading, fellow Bout of Bookers!


  1. I love the maps. I'm obsessed with Central America right now. I also love a good British or Australian setting. :)

    1. I'm obsessed with maps, too! So interesting :)

  2. Great job with this. I love the mini maps.
