Ten 13 Books I Enjoyed Recently (last yearish) That Weren’t My Typical Genre/Type of Book (or that was out of your comfort zone)
Well, I wouldn’t say that I enjoyed all of the books that were out of my comfort zone. So, I am going to break them up into two categories. The Books I liked 4 or 5 Stars, and Books that I didn’t really care for 3 Stars or under.
1-6.) Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I thought I would never lay a finger on these books, but my sister
made me read them, and I am glad she did. I LOVED THEM! Now I hope,
that Bloodlines is just as good! I’m still waiting on three of the books, then
I will be getting my read on! 🙂
7.) Percy Jackson and The Olympians Series by Rick Riordan. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I haven’t read all of the books yet, but I will in time. I really loved the
first book, and by what I hear, I should love the rest of them just as much!
8.) The Murmurings by Carly Anne West. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I’m not a big fan of Fantasy/Mystery/Thrillers, but this book caught my
attention, and I just had to have it! I think the icing on the cake is the
fact that it is set in Arizona, and I live in Arizona, so I couldn’t say no.
There are some crazy things going on in this book, but I still enjoyed it.
9.) Absent by Katie Williams. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I got this book on my nook app a while ago when it was like $2.
Like I said before, I’m not really into Fantasy or Paranormal books, but
I bought it because it was cheap, and I like/believe in Ghosts, so why not?
10.) The Martian by Andy Weir. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Everyone seems to have liked this book, but it just wasn’t my cup
of tea. I know he was up there by himself, and he was probably going
a little bit crazy, but he talked to much, and it really annoyed me. There
was also too much science going on. It was like he had to explain EVERYTHING
in detail, and I just didn’t need that…
11.) Like Candy by Debra Doxer. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
12.) Sweet Liar by Debra Doxer. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I’m not big on mystery/thrillers, but where I read about these I was like,
this has to be good! But unfortunately for me, there were just okay. Not my style.
I’m sorry but there was just too much foolishness going on in these books.
At first I thought I was really going to enjoy them, but then a lot of unrealistic
things were going on…I’m surprised I picked up and finished both books.
13.) I Take You by Eliza Kennedy. ⭐
I’m not really big on reading Adult fiction, because they tend to be too much.
But when I saw this book, I was thinking it was going to be more along the
lines of the books, Something Borrow, and Something Blue by Emily Giffin…Boy
was I wrong! It was like I was reading PORN! 😐 No Thanks!
That’s it for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday.

of your comfort zone? Let me know down in the comments! 😀
