Around the World in YA Books Tag | LibroLiv

Hello, Everyone!

I’m so sorry for being so absent recently, but school as been a killer as of late, suffocating me with homework and revision tasks. As you may know, I am in my final year of traditional school in the UK, and so there’s a lot of pressure with upcoming exams, as well as sixth form applications, and teachers jumping down my throat to get me on their course for next year. Yikes.

Thus, I apologise in advance for my absence that is sure to continue, but – as much as it pains me to say it – my exams have to take priority…I’m sure you all understand.

But, on a happier note, here I am! LaLa tagged me to complete the Around the World in YA Books Tag, and I couldn’t resist. (Make sure you check out LaLa’s Blog here – she’s awesome!) So, here it is…

⋘The Rules⋙

Choose a selection of countries, and pick your favourite YA book set in each country. Simple!

The first stop on our journey is France. More specifically, Paris! That’s right, it’s Anna and the French Kiss, people!


This is probably one of my favourite books ever – it would be a crime not to mention it!


Next up is Germany. More specifically, Nazi occupied/ruled Germany.


Not so cheery, but makes for an amazing YA book. The Book Thief is many people’s favourite book, young and old, and I can definitely perceive why.


Next up is where pretty much 90% of YA novels are set – the USA! More specifically, Pennsylvania.


It was difficult to choose just one, because the USA offers such a vast selection of YA novels, but – to be quite honest – I can’t help but feel that The Perks of Being a Wallflower trumps them all.


The next stop on our vast journey is China. More specifically, Beijing.


I always forget that Cinder is actually set in Beijing due to it being a futuristic version. Nevertheless, here it is!


Next up, Ireland. More specifically, Dublin.


Love, Rosie is so devastatingly long yet simultaneously so devastatingly adorable that it’s easily forgiven. The format is also very unique – one of my favourite reads of 2015.

The UK

The final stop on our tour transports us to my home country – the UK! More specifically, London (obviously).


I never really noticed before, but I haven’t read many YA book set in the UK. Funny.

And that’s everything!

I really hope you enjoyed this post, and if you did, make sure to leave me a like and a comment – it means the world to me!

Until next time, and to keep up with my reading as it happens, find me on Goodreads, Twitter, and Tumblr.
