If you didn’t know, I’m a Midwest girl through and through. I was born in Indiana, and then we moved to Ohio, and then we moved to Wisconsin, and then we moved back to Indiana. So, like I said, very Midwest. I live in Utah now (very not Midwest), but I still love me some Midwest setting. Especially in YA novels. And I’ve actually been noticing an increase in the amount of Midwest settings in YA novels lately! Or maybe I’m just imagining that, I don’t know.
But anyway, today’s TTT prompt is Top Ten Books in X Setting, so I chose Midwest! (Who would’ve guessed, right?) These are all the books that I could find that I’ve read with Midwest settings. There are probably more that should be on this list, but I couldn’t remember. Sorry, forgotten books! I still love you! Just include your setting on Goodreads, and I’ll be sure to get you next time.
