Top Ten Tuesday: Get Me Out of My Comfort Zone


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic and this week’s topic is: Ten Book I Enjoyed Recently (last yearish) That Weren’t My Typical Genre/Type of Book (or that was out of your comfort zone)

1) The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown – I’m not a HUGE nonfiction reader, but I really enjoyed this one!
2) The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness – I think this is classified as Science Fiction? I’m not sure because I don’t read a lot of Science Fiction.
3) Skyscraping by Cordelia Jensen – I almost never read books written in verse and I didn’t expect to enjoy this one, but I did.
4) Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson – When I read romance it’s generally YA Contemporary, but I’m glad I gave this one a shot.
5) In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters – I don’t think I’d classify this book as horror, but it’s about as horror as I get.
6) Wonder by R.J. Palacio – This is a middle grade book that I read for a class. It definitely made me think about things in a different way.
7) The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman – What is this, magical realism? I’m not sure, but I liked it.
8) Last Bus to Wisdom by Ivan Doig – This is about as close to a Western I think I’ll ever get.
9) All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – I don’t often stray into the Adult Fiction genre, but I’m glad I did for this one.
10) Uprooted by Naomi Novik – A little more in the Fantasy genre than I would normally read, but I still liked it.
