if you have been to all 50 states in the US, choose a Canadian province

Kate Buechler | 10 comments All the Crooked Saints is set in Colorado. The book was fairly heavy on the magical realism, and arguably it really could have been set in just about any state without changing the story much at all.

Annie The Dream Thieves, set in Virginia.

This is a novella that is a "half" number in this series about the Baba Yagas in the US - told from the perspective of a teen apprentice. It's set in Wyoming, and I'm stunned to realize I haven't been there yet! (Adding it to my to-visit list!)

I just finished this book. It takes place in Maine, a state I have yet to visit. It was a fascinating story of a man who lived in the woods of Maine for over twenty years. I highly recommend it!

Aileen Swenson | 8 comments I just started reading Educated: A Memoir
which I've heard some rave reviews about. I'm only a couple chapters in, but so far it's very interesting.

I would also recommendThe Great Alone by Kristin Hannah. This one is set in Alaska but I've actually been there so I couldn't use it for this prompt. There are some similar themes in this fictional novel to what I'm reading so far in Educated.
