Top Ten Tuesday

This week's topic is Top Ten Favorite Books With England Setting. I spent a semester abroad in Bath, England during my junior year in college and LOVED it! I can't wait to go back and I hope I get to go next year. England is always in my heart and I love reading about it. I 'll focus on the teen books and try to create an adult list later in the week.

Harry Potter series - hands down, part of all time favorite books
The Agency series: Love this series - the spy agency plus the romance
Countess Below Stairs - fantastic book about after the Russian Revolution where a Countess flees and ends up in England working as maid.
Sure Fire: Twins discover a father they've never met is a spy, who gets kidnapped and needs their help.
Angus Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging: best friends, romance, and laughter - lots of laughter
The Season: Regency romance about three girls and their first season (and a potential murder)
Enola Holmes series: Sherlock's sister trying to uncover the mysterious disappearance by her mother and trying to live in London undetected by her brothers.
Bewitching Season: Magic, romance, and a plot to harm the queen
Sorcery and Cecelia: Cousins and best friends write letters to each other sharing details of evil wizards.
Ruby in the Smoke: A favorite from my youth - Sally, a recent orphan, searches for a ruby and clues to the death of her father

Georgia Nicolson!!! Have you read the Young Sherlock series by Andrew Lane? If not you might want to. I also love The Agency books. Great pick and list!

I love so many of these books. Sorcery and Cecilia is on my list too. (I did Regency England.) It's such a great book.

Well you just gave me a bunch of new books to check out. I've read The Agency books (the first two, at least) and Harry Potter (of course) but the others are new to me! Great list!

I loved Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging as well as Harry Potter. I'd add Sophie Kinsella books and Forbidden to my England list!

Great topic! I debated doing international settings until I settled on cities. I've had The Season on my TBR list since I read my first Sarah MacLean book earlier this year, I'm glad to hear you liked it!
