Library Update

It’s time for my monthly Library update!! I feel like I’ve been getting better at reading the books that I borrow instead of letting them sit there until I need to return them. Though I have been more in a E-Book reading phase at the moment so it’s been a little bit difficult to pick something up physically and actually read it. However, I am still going to utilise the library and continue to borrow books that have piqued my interest and hopefully read them. I have actually finished one book already that I have borrowed and that is Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir!

๐Ÿš€ Sci-Fi Favs ๐Ÿš€

I’ve been slowly dipping my feet into the sci-fi genre and have really enjoyed what I have picked up so far. I’m mostly only read series at this stage, I haven’t really encountered many stand-alone’s that I have captured my attention enough for me to want to read, though there have been a few. I think there are definitely some sub-genre’s that won’t appeal to me but until I actually pick up a few and give them a try I will never know… I am definitely open to any recommendations!

Here are a few sci-fi books I have loved:

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 weekโ€™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 โ€“ 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!

36373481

2 copySawkill Girls by Claire Legrand โ€“ 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.

38139409

3 copyThe Hating Game by Sally Thorne โ€“ 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 โ€“ Sci-fi isnโ€™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 didnโ€™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!

8d117c8c-2523-43da-adbf-cbab1c56ad67

5 copyEliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia โ€“ 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.
