July Book Blowout - Mini Challenge

The Where’s your book set? meme

Here’s how it works - just answer some or all of the following questions about the book you are currently reading (or just finished if you are between books).

Here’s the questions:

1. Title and author of the book

Lady Macbeth by Susan Fraser King

2. What year is the book set in?


3. What happened on this day in that year? Go to google and type in the date i.e. 13 July 1952 and see if you can find a news item for that day

No luck with this one!

4. Where is your book set?


5. Have you visited that place before? If yes tell us something about your trip. If no, look the location up on google and tell us an interesting fact about the city/country.
