    Omg I LOVE Pippi Longstockings and I forgot it was set in Sweden! Gasp How could I forget that?! Shame on me. 😄 And I also adore A Single Shard and Number The Stars. ❤ I grew up reading those kinds of books and it was basically the best of ever. :’)
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    Looove this list! Agatha Christie is by far my favorite mystery author, and Murder on the Orient Express is definitely the next book by her that I’ll read! I’m also a pretty big fan of Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park!!! <3) so I’ll absolutely be checking out Eaters of the Dead.

    I only stumble on your post now and it is just stunning! I completely forgot about Agatha Christie…. she did have her novel-settingd travel around the globe. I’ve listed 10 books set in South Africa for TTT and forgot about The man in the brown suit. Thanks for the reminder!
