Planet YA: Europe

Read your way across the globe with our PLANET YA maps!

Today’s stop: EUROPE

A few weeks ago we debuted our United States of YA reading map, a map featuring young adult books set in all 50 states. We promised to extend the project to the rest of the world, and thanks to your help, we’ve been working hard on creating a list of YA books set in as many countries as we can. Now we are rolling out maps for the rest of the world! To make it easier, we are breaking up the maps by regions and will post them in separate blog posts. We encourage you all to reblog, post, download, print and share. We created these maps for everyone and we hope you are enjoying them as much as us!

View Canada & Greenland’s map here.

Take a trip down under with our Oceania map.


Today we are traveling to the magical land of EUROPE. We struggled to find as many countries as we could and with the help of some of our members we were able to get 33 European countries in total for this map!

How many books on this list have you read?

    Love that you’re expanding the map globally! You could add Between for Scotland. :)

    Daughter of Smoke and Bone is sooooo good!

    You’ve left a hole in Slovenia :(

    Why does in the UK it says Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Not Sorcerer’s stone. And the cover isn’t the real one. I think that’s a fake.

      Because lots of books and titles are different in Europe than what they are in the USA.

  9. November 21, 2012 | 8:29 pm

    And for Portragul the covers are different for the starfish book.

  10. November 21, 2012 | 9:10 pm
