Top Ten Tuesday: Books Set In College & Foreign Countries

Top Ten Tuesdays is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Favourite Books with College & Foreign Country Settings: 

Since I couldn't decide which setting to choose I decided to split my list into two. I've been reading so many NA books lately, a College setting seemed like the perfect choice! And also foreign country settings.

College Setting:

(1) Keep Me Still by Caisey Quinn
I just read this one and it is seriously awesome and a must read for any NA lovers!

(2) The Only Exception by Magan Vernon (April 9th 2013)
Loved this new adult romance so much - it was refreshing to have such a feisty heroine! Monica stood up for what she believed in, as did Trey. They often clashed heads in political class at college, but that didn't stop them falling in love!

(3) On An Edge Of Glass by Autumn Doughton (March 9th 2013)
A musician hero this isn't a complete douche, a heroine that isn't a whiny crying pain in the neck and a healthy romantic and humorous storyline!!! Excellent book!

(4) Wait For You by J. Lynn (February 26th 2013)
Yeah, well this JLA book kinda started my obsession with NA/College books so it has to make the list. And it is awesome!

(5) The Coincidence Of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorensen (Dec 13th 2012)
Such an emotional story with strong characters - this one was really beautiful! Only problem was a killer cliff hanger!

Foreign Country Settings

(1) Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase (April 23rd 2013)
I think this book basically consisted of every girl's fairytale dream, discovering she's a duchess in a small foreign country & falling in love with a sexy as hell prince. And of course there is plenty of sexy time on her new estate *wink wink*

(2) Queen In Exile By Donna Hatch
This book actually spanned two foreign countries, and also had a dash of magical fantasy. A surprisingly emotional story - defiantly not as light & fluffy as I thought it would be, but certainly a great read!

(3) My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century by Rachel Harris
Gah I love this series! How cool would it be to travel back to Renaissance Italy…answer: very cool indeed!

(4) The False Princess by Eilis O'Neal
This was such a magical Cinderella type story, with lots of mystery, twists & turns and of course a dash of romance!

(5) Lessons Learned by Kate Davies
This book is made up of two shorter stories revolving around a foreign royal family. I read this a few years ago (2008ish) before NA stories exploded in popularity, but I feel like this could actually fit perfectly into that genre. I might have to reread this one and post a review soon, because it's a bit of a hidden gem!

Well those are my Top Ten Ten - what about yours?


  1. I bought On an Edge of Glass recently. Glad to read that it's good! Fab list.

    1. It is actually one of my favourite books I've read this year! Such a sweet romantic story! Hope you enjoy it too :)

  2. My list was about the college setting too - and I had to include Wait For You as well. How could you not include Cam and his eggs?!

    TTT @ Krista's Dust Jacket

    1. Totally - Cam & his eggs...and let's not forget his cookies either *wink wink*

  3. I love the foreign country, I should have thought of that but I did different Europe countries :D

    My TTT

    1. I suppose my foreign county books are all set in Europe too! Europe's always a great setting for books, especially romances & fairytales which is what I love to read :)

    2. Amy thanks for visiting my blog, I love Europe settings too, like you said if it feels so romantic :D

  4. Fun theme. Loved Wait For You. Want to read Suddenly Royal and My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century.


    1. Suddenly Royal was amazing, it looks like it's going to be a sweet little romance, but it's also quite sexy too :)

  5. Great list. My favorite college set book is probably Beautiful Disaster.

    My TTT.

    1. I haven't read Beautiful Disaster yet but it definitely on my TBR list!

  6. I haven't read ANY of these books. That's a first. I've got The Only Exception from Netgalley, but I haven't gotten to it yet.
