Books I Enjoyed Outside my Comfort Zone

So I typically only read fantasy but since starting my blog I have really started to expand my reading tastes and dip my toes in other genres. As this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is books I enjoyed outside of my comfort zone I went through and picked 5 books that sparked my love of these other genres.

1 copyThe Death of Mrs Westaway by Ruth Ware – I had wanted to pick up mystery/thrillers for the longest time and I came across The Death of Mrs Westaway in a book store and I remembered it had some good reviews so I picked it up and LOVED it!

2 copySawkill Girls by Claire Legrand – this was my first real foray into more dark/horror fantasy and I really enjoyed it! This book was super eerie and strange and it captured me right from the start.

3 copyThe Hating Game by Sally Thorne – This book propelled me back into the world of adult romance/smut. I am a sucker for the hate to love trope and this book executed it perfectly.

4 copyReady Player One by Ernest Cline – Sci-fi isn’t my thing at all and Ready Player One has really been the only book in the sci-fi genre I have been able to stomach so far. I recently read The Long Way to A Small Angry Planet not too long ago and didn’t really enjoy it all that much but I am still open to picking up more books from this genre and exploring what else it has to offer!

5 copyEliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia – this was my real first kind of hard hitting young adult contemporary book with mental health representation included. Up until I picked Eliza and Her Monsters up I was just reading a lot of fluffy YA books with no real substance.
