Top 10 Books Out of My Comfort Zone That Ended Up Favorites

tttcomfortzone

Hi all! How is your week going?

I am still reading Glass Sword and I just don’ know how I feel about it. It’s kind of not really living up to my expectations and it really pains me to say that. But I am hoping it picks up because I don’t want to not like this book 😦

Anyway, before I start another rant that I am sure my boyfriend is sick of hearing, it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday!

TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, please check here for future topics!

This weeks topic isΒ books that you read recently that were out of your genre/comfort zone that you ended up really liking.

So without further ado…

Outlander

I AM SORRY! Yes, IΒ have to mention Outlander AGAIN, but I am really proud of myself for reading this book! And even more proud that it is not one of my favorites. I really pushed myself out of my comfort zone with this book because I usually hate reading long books. And if this series doesn’t intimidate you…then well…wow because it definitely did me!

The Martian

Another new favorite. I really don’t even know what made me want to read this book because it’s definitely not my usual genre, but it was so fantastic!

 

Ready Player One

Now this is still techinically YA I suppose but it’s not something I would usually read. I am not a gamer by any means. I don’t play video games, nor do I even try to understand them but this book really makes me want to! I loved all the references and the feel to the entire book. It was so vivid and makes me feel like I was in the stimulation myself. I really really enjoyed this book. It was so much fun to read.

Gone Girl

I actually really enjoyed this book. I was hooked and totally creeped out by the crazy. I ranted to my mom the entire time while reading this book. I would rush out of my room screaming and yelling telling my mom everything that it made my mom feel like she read the whole book right along with me XD

Modern Romance

This is nonfiction. I don’t read nonfiction.Β Ever. But it is Aziz Ansari and even though it was more academic than I thought it’d be, I still really enjoyed it.It probably helped that Aziz still put his flair and humor whilst talking about some serious subjects. He made it entertaining and informing at the same time.

Percy Jackson

Middle grade. I didn’t even want to touch Middle Grade because I thought it would be a little too kiddie for me but surprisingly enough this is one of the best series ever! I can’t believe I waited this long to finally read them! It’s notΒ completely out of my comfort zone because it’s still Fantasy and I love love love Fantasy, but I am including it because it’s mostly MG.

Yes, I still need to read The Heroes of Olympus series 😦


 

And that is honestly all I can think of that I read recently. Whoa I didn’t even have 10. If that’s not a sign that I need to mix it up then I don’t know what is! So this year I better rectify this and read some more books out of my comfort zone because this is just sad πŸ˜₯

Any suggestions?

Until next time,
