So I’m from Ohio, and surprisingly, I haven’t seen or read many books from Ohio. Curious to see what kinds of books pop up set in my home state, I googled “books set in Ohio.”

The following list is pulled from a couple different places in the top search categories. Perhaps you and I will read them sometime.

  1. The Outsider by Stephen King
  2. Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valez
  3. The Devil All the Time by Ray Pollock
  4. Winesbeg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson
  5. The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
  6. Ohio by Stephen Markley
  7. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey (one I actually read, a good read but the sequels aren’t as much)
  8. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
  9. Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
  10. Indignation by Philip Roth
  11. The House of Dies Drear by Virginia Hamilton (another great novel, haven’t read it in decades, need to read it again)
  12. If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio
  13. Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
  14. “…And Ladies of the Club” by Helen Hoover
  15. Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein

Couple of links I grabbed from: http://www.bookglow.net/must-read-books-set-in-ohio/ & https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Novels_set_in_Ohio

Some of these I knew of and others I didn’t or forgot about. I wish there were more books set in Ohio, it really is an interesting place to write about.
