Top Ten Tuesday | Books Set in Vegas

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

Hey, friends! Okay, so the “real” topic this week is actually “Books That Awaken the Travel Bug in Me” but I feel like I just did a T10T that was super similar with โ€œBooks That Take Place in Another Countryโ€ and I didn’t want to say the same answers! So, I completely changed it up and decided to just showcase ten books that take place in, or have a major scene set in, the city that I live in: Las Vegas!

Me, cheesin’ in Bellagio

I mean, I know itโ€™s technically nicknamed โ€œThe City of Sinโ€ but we got some banging book stores, too! Okay, I love you and hope youโ€™re all have the happiest of reading!

    1. HELLO, DANI! Thatโ€™s so dang cool! The best part about this post so far has been friends telling me they live close! Also – adding to my TBR now! Thank you, love. And I hope youโ€™re having happy reading! ๐Ÿ’›โœจ


    1. YAY! I actually havenโ€™t read it yet. But I loved The Secret History so damn much! I have high hopes! And I hope youโ€™re having happy reading! ๐Ÿ’›โœจ


    1. LARONDA – I HAD NO IDEA YOU LIVED IN VEGAS. OH MY GOSH. Legit, my love for you just keeps growing and growing. And lmao – I recommend Bad Things the most on this list… but itโ€™s steamy for sure. I hope youโ€™re having happy reading, love! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’•


  1. Aww, actually living there?!?!?! How cool is that?!?! โค
    I always wanted to see Vegas. I think as for living there it would be too intense for me. But then again, i have no idea. It's just the impression i get from pictures, movies and books.

    1. NOW YOU HAVE A BETTER REASON TO COME (spoiler – it me) Hahahahah! The strip is for sure INTENSE, but the rest? Not near as busy as Chicago, New York, or LA! Just… more adds for porn, hahaha! Happy reading (AND TRAVELING TO ME), love! ๐Ÿ’—xx

  2. Nice take on this week’s topic! The Night Huntress series sounds interesting. The only series that comes to mind that I’ve read set in Vegas is The Signs of the Zodiac series by Vicki Pettersson. It has been a while since I read it, but I enjoyed it. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. Awh, thank you! Yeah… I felt like I was doing good… then they all turned into romances I’ve enjoyed! Hehe! But give me all your recs! I love reading about books set in Vegas and Flint/Detroit! Happy reading, love! ๐Ÿ’—xx


    1. Oh my gosh, I actually live in Henderson, too! Hahaha! Shhh… don’t ruin the T10T immersion! But that’s awesome, Mogsy! And yes! You have to let me know when you come out! ๐Ÿ’—xx


  3. I have not read any of these! I also did not realize you live in Vega ๐Ÿ’• I live in Portland now and love it. Not too far from you. We did Thanksgiving with the adults in Vegas one year and it was a blast. In August we are bring the kids but I am dreading the heat haha. I am told August is sweltering! Love the pic ๐Ÿ˜

      1. Girl, okay, I talk about this IRL constantly. I was born and raised in Michigan, I moved out there after college, and I never though it was humid. Ever. Like, we’d go to Texas and Florida and I couldn’t believe people lived there. Now, whenever I got back home to Michigan, I just want to cry over the humidity! Hahah! It’s funny how things are when you just… don’t know? Haha! โค

  4. YES! I love this spin on the topic. When I saw you say Las Vegas I was thinking, I feel like I’ve hardly read any books that have scenes in Vegas and then poof, your list reminded me that I totally did. And then it reminded me that I need to kick my butt into gear and read the Percy Jackson books, still. Thanks for sharing!
