Book Blogger Hop
This week’s Book Blogger Hop question is: What is your favorite book set in a different country than the one you live in?
The only series/set I own with an international cover is the Harry Potter series. I got them for Christmas 2011. I wanted to read them in all their British glory so my husband bought them for me. I loved every minute of reading them, except when “soccer” and “sweater” appeared in later books. Way to ruin my British experience! Ha ha. Just kidding.
Updated: I totally read the question wrong. I figured this out after hopping to a few others’ posts. My favorite setting in a different country is Victorian England and the Tudors era as well.
What about you?
This week’s Follow Friday question is: What is a book you didn’t like that all your friends raved about or what book did you love that wasn’t popular?
There are a few that I haven’t like that others have: The Devil Wears Prada, Le Petit Prince, and A Handmaid’s Tale.
- The Devil Wears Prada was too long and too boring. I liked the movie a whole lot better than I liked the book.
- I read Le Petit Prince in French for school. I think that’s why I didn’t like it. I want to read it again in English and for fun and see if that changes my perception of it.
- And, I didn’t like the lack of information regarding the how or why the world went the way it did in A Handmaid’s Tale.
