Top Ten Tuesdays

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks topic is..
Ten Books I Enjoyed Recently (last yearish) That Weren't My Typical Genre/Type of Book -

I don't normally read M/M books, but I adored/loved/worshipped Carry On by Rainbow Rowell and while I normally stay away from book that overly contain emails, documents, interviews and so on, I was really impressed with Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
1. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
2. Graphic Novel edition of Howl by Allen Ginsberg

I don't venture out of my reading comfort zone too much, so this one was hard. I did come up with:
1. Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics - YA Horror is new to me, and it was rather captivating.
2. Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman - I rarely pick up YA SciFi, but when I do they seem to be a hit for me, and this one was!

Honestly, I don't go beyond my normal comfort zone either. However, a book buddy of mine sent me a book from Europe and I hadn't read this author before and gave it a go! I ended up really liking it! So here is my one and only I can think of at this point...
1. Trouble by Non Pratt
(I received Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan. It's a magical thriller. I'm a big chicken, so anything with THRILLER makes me want to run with my tail between my legs! I'm going to give it a go! Can I get a High-Five!?)


  1. I tend not to go outside of my comfort zone either. Great picks ladies, a lot of them are new to me.

  2. Ah, those sound like great books. Most of the time I don't go out of my comfort zone unless I've read a quote that I loved. That's why I read The Vespertine.
