Top Ten Tuesday!!- 19th July!!

 set outside us

 

Hello Everyone!!

Top Ten Tuesday is a book meme hosted by Broke and Bookish. Basically, you get a new bookish topic every Tuesday, and you comprise a list of ten (or however many you’re able to list) things relating to said topic.

This week’s topic is Books Outside US!! 

I love reading books from different settings. I think it increases the scope of your knowledge and lets you experience different cultures around the world.


Even though I am from India, my reading revolves a lot around US authors and settings. So I will first list the books, I Love in the Indian setting.
