California Here We Come | Books Set in the Golden State [Part 2]

Posted July 12, 2017 by Cristina (Girl in the Pages) in California Here We Come, Features / 6 Comments

It’s probably no secret by now that I am a beloved West Coast native and I LIVE for books set in California. I’m thrilled to see that a golden state setting is becoming more and more common, and will 100% prioritize books set in California on my TBR. I’ve decided to start compiling lists of the top YA books set in California and chronicling them on my blog. Today’s post features books set in both NorCal (San Francisco!) and SoCal. And no, NOBODY who lives in SF actually refers to it as “Frisco” so if you ever come to the Bay Area, do yourself a favor and don’t call it that (we do, however, say “hella”).

Have you read any of the above books? Do you find that you gravitate toward books set in certain parts of the world or US? Do you find your home state or country to be the setting for YA books? What’s your favorite YA book that’s set in California or your home location? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I have not heard of Outrun the Moon but it sounds really great!

    I also enjoy books set in California! I am not from there but it is one of my favourite places to visit!

    I did not realize that Lucky in Love was set in a orange County! Definitely adding to TBR!!

  2. Ooh I have actually read none of these books and as someone who doesn’t live in the US I always love reading books set there, specifically focusing on the city where the characters explore the city/are influenced by it! These all sound so amazing and I cannot wait to read them! Thanks so much for sharing! <3

    • Thank you for the lovely comment, Anisa! I too love when books are based in areas/settings that play a large part in the plot of the book (rather than just a random town that could be anywhere) so I’m starting to try and keep track of specific book locations with this feature. I’m glad you’re enjoying it! 😀
