#TopTenTuesday Books Set in the Caribbean

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

Barbados BeachThis week’s topic is a freebie and since I’m off to Barbados in a few days time (don’t hate me) I’ve come up with a list of books set wholly or partly in the Caribbean. Links from the title will take you to my review or the book description on Goodreads. 

Sugar Money by Jane Harris – Martinique & Grenada
Fortune by Amanda Smyth – Trinidad
Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys – Jamaica
Sugar in the Blood by Andrea Stuart – Barbados
Washington Black by Esi Edugyan – Barbados
How The One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House by Cherie Jones – Barbados
Love After Love by Ingrid Persaud – Trinidad
River Sing Me Home by Eleanor Shearer – Barbados, British Guiana (now Guyana) & Trinidad
The Tide Between Us by Olive Collins – Jamaica
Island on Fire by Sophie Schiller – Martinique

  1. Barbados! That sounds lovely this time of year. Enjoy your holiday! Island on Fire sounds like it would be an interesting read.

    Happy Reading!
