  1. We have some of the same books like Outlander (had a feeling you'd include it too!) and The Nightingale. I never even thought to include Canada or Anne of Green Gables would have made my list :)

    If I'd put Ireland on my list I would have added PS, I Love You and maybe some of Juliet Marillier's fantasy novels.

    Great list!

    1. Yes! Completely agree, Christina. I haven't read P.S. I Love You, but I saw the movie and definitely want to read the book. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Anything set in Ireland and Scotland become auto-reads for me Christina, I couldn't love those two countries more! And Anna and the French Kiss will always be an all-time favorite of mine, so even though I've never been to Paris, I love it because of that book:)

  5. Great list! I picked up a copy of The Nightingale at BEA, but I still need to read it. Outlander and Salt to the Sea are also on my TBR list. I'm happy to see that you enjoyed them.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  7. I couldn't figure out the exact location of Salt to the Sea either. I notice you put Europe. I put Prussia, though I am not sure exactly where that is/was. Ha!

    1. I was going to put Prussia! I even looked up what Prussia would be today and there were so many possibilities depending on where the lines are drawn on the map that I went with Europe in general. Due to the war, it got confusing! Thanks for visiting, Anne!

  8. Oh man, I think I pushed a button before I posted my comment. I hate that. I had a hard time narrowing down exactly where Salt to the Sea was set, too.
