ten books set locally i’d like to read
posted by soe 1:28 am

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie week, where host Jana of That Artsy Reader Girl invites us to make up our own bookish topic.

I recently finished one book that starts in Washington, D.C., and another that includes D.C. among several settings, which made me think about other books set in the area. Rather than give you a list of books set here that I’d recommend (although I’d be happy to do so if you leave a note in the comments), I thought I’d share ten books set locally that I’d like to read:

  1. Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson* (ya)
  2. Rebound by Kwame Alexander (mg)
  3. Down and Across by Arvin Ahmadi* (ya)
  4. The Van Gogh Deception by Deron Hicks (mg)
  5. Calamity at the Continental Club by Colleen Shogan (adult)
  6. All Aunt Hagar’s Children by Edward P. Jones (adult)
  7. All-American Girl by Meg Cabot (ya)
  8. Training School for Negro Girls by Camille Acker (adult)
  9. Speak No Evil by Uzodinma Iweala (ya)
  10. Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders (adult)

*I own a copy and have no excuse why I haven’t read it yet.

Have you read any of these books?
