~ Around the United States in Books (2022 Edition) ~

While reading in 2021, I decided that it would be fun to track the locations of stories around the United States. Some stories take place in multiple locations, so I tried to include them in as many of the states as possible. Other novels were difficult to tell where in the United States they were based even with context clues or phrasing choices. I would have loved to have at least one novel for each state, but, unfortunately, I have not come across stories based in some states, such as Delaware. Throughout this post, I list the cities where the novels were based when possible and just list them as unknown cities for those where I could not recall or pinpoint.


Alabama – 0 novels


Alaska – 5 novels


Arizona – 2 novels


Arkansas – 0 novels


California – 18 novels


Colorado – 3 novels


Connecticut – 1 novel


Delaware – 0 novels


Florida – 8 novels


Georgia – 2 novels


Hawaii – 4 novels


Idaho – 0 novels


Illinois – 3 novels


Indiana – 1 novel


Iowa – 0 novels


Kansas – 0 novels


Kentucky – 1 novel


Louisiana – 1 novel


Maine – 3 novels


Maryland – 2 novels


Massachusetts – 5 novels


Michigan – 2 novels


Minnesota – 1 novel


Mississippi – 0 novels


Missouri – 0 novels


Montana – 0 novels


Nebraska – 0 novels


Nevada – 1 novel


New Hampshire – 0 novels


New Jersey – 1 novel


New Mexico – 0 novels


New York – 17 novels


North Carolina – 1 novel


North Dakota – 0 novels


Ohio – 2 novels


Oklahoma – 1 novel


Oregon – 2 novels


Pennsylvania – 0 novels


Rhode Island– 0 novels


South Carolina – 1 novel


South Dakota – 0 novels


Tennessee – 6 novels


Texas – 1 novel


Utah – 2 novels


Vermont – 2 novels


Virginia – 0 novels


Washington – 6 novels


Washington DC – 3 novels


West Virginia – 1 novel


Wisconsin – 0 novels


Wyoming – 1 novel


I am sure there are some novels that I read in 2022 that I missed in placing in their correct states, but I believe I included most of them. My goal eventually is to read at least one novel set in every state, so it may take a while to complete my map, but I will get there one day. I am not sure in 2023 if I want to continue using this list or start a new one, so I will just track my 2023 reads and decide from there towards the end of the year. Happy Reading!
