This week’stopi was  Top Ten Books With X Setting. I always love reading books from where I am from which happens to be the great state of New Jersey. New Jersey often gets a very bad rap but I love it and get super excite when I read books set there. Here my top 8 books set in NJ!

Do you love reading books set where you are from/live as much as I do?

  1. What fun to chose your home state as your setting this week! I’m sorry to say I haven’t read a single book that you chose. Apparently I need to broaden my horizons! 🙂 I usually enjoy books set here in Florida. I’ve never read one in my actual city (although it was mentioned in the Twilight series LOL) but it’s still fun to read about places that are relatively close to home.

  2. I love it when I come across a book set in my home state or an area I’m familiar with. I think I’ve read a few books that had locations in NJ- most recently a historical book about the Revolution. I think this was about the battle of Trenton? It’s been a while.

    Been Here All Along and How To Keep Rolling both look good…

  3. I haven’t read a lot of the books on your list but I have read the Stephanie Plum books and those were good. I’m going to have to check out the others but one of them is a book you reviewed recently on your blog. I want to read that one too.

    Great post and topic!

  4. It seems like I’ve read quite a few books that take place there, but I’ve only read Boy Meets Boy from your list. The Jessica Darling books start out in NJ and I think all of Jennifer Salvato Doktorski’s books are set there too. 🙂 I always love when I read a book set in my state too.

  5. I LOVE when books are set near me! Love, love LOVE! It happens insanely infrequently, because no one lives in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and it is kind of an entity unto itself, but when it does- or even when a book MENTIONS the area- I get giddy! I didn’t know that these were set in NJ, actuallY! Even the one I have read (oops!), I guess I wasn’t paying attention 😉 Great list, I love your topic choice!!
