Where are You Reading? 2017 wrap-up

The Where are You Reading? Reading Challenge 2017 is hosted by Book Dragon’s Lair and I joined up in late January, even though I said I was done with new challenges. The goal was to read a book that takes place in each letter of the alphabet, with real or fictional locations allowed.

Here’s my book list, and a varied list of places I managed to go! I read them all as a part of my regular reading except Q which I had to get from Interlibrary Loan, as I couldn’t find any Q places on my shelves.
