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

Today’s stop: SOUTH AMERICA

A few months 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 re-blog, tumble, pin, download, print and share. We created these maps for everyone and we hope you are enjoying them as much as us!

Other maps:

Canada & Greenland
Europe

Oceania

Today we are traveling below the equator to visit SOUTH AMERICA. We are missing a few countries on this map, you’d be surprised at how hard it is to find teen books set in South American countries!

How many books on this list have you read?

    ‘The Queen of Water’ was AMAZING, the same goes for ‘Origin.’ I’m sad Guyana, the country touching Brazil and Venezuela doesn’t have any books. I’M GUYANESE (half)! And it’s a truly awesome place.

    Awesome. I’ve read The Disappeared before. I have my students read 1 novel a trimester about the Hispanic culture. Will have to ask my librarian if we can get these other books!
