...the USA, of course!
Most of my readers know I'm from Germany and LOVE everything American (except maybe...GM food...but is that really only American? Let's not get into political correctness here. Because I suck at it)
Naturally, I had to pick the Top Ten Novels set in the US that I read so far (something about my grammar is off today)
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Such a classic. Also, did I mention I love everything about US history, too?
1) Caster Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margret Stohl
I love reading about the Southern mentality. It's like home. Seriously, people in my town are just as narrowminded and conservative as say...Link's mom. I love them anyways (shhh! not literally all of them!)
2) The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr
I'm not even completely sure, but I believe it's set in San Francisco and that...made me add another city to the list of places I've got to visit before I die...
3) The Lying Game Series by Sara Shepard
LOVE the whote desert-like city Shepard describes in those books. I could never live there for long (I need rainy days and storms that I can run in), but it sure sounds cool!
4) The Pretty Little Liars Series by Sara Shepard
Sorry, sorry. I had to. I love Rosewood even more than that deserty town. Might also be because of the way they portray it in the TV show. The houses are too pretty to be true!
5) 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody
I would trade my hometown for L.A. at all times. Sorry. And yes, I really am that disloyal.
6) Belles by Jen Calonita
Although I'd actually prefer to live where Izzy lives. I wouldn't feel comfortable around rich people. I'm a klutz and I can't behave myself.
7) Airhead Trilogy by Meg Cabot
8) The Princess Diaries Series by Meg Cabot
9) The Caster Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
...because they're all set and noone (don't lie!) can pretend not to be sooo curious about NYC. I'm dying to see it and someday I will.
10) The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot
Set in California and gives a really great and different image of California. Also, it's plain hilarious!
