July 6th: Favorite Books Outside Your Comfort Zone:
I’m a big fan of YA Contemporaries, so anything else, is considered
out of my Comfort Zone. These five books, made me want to read
more books that are outside of my comfort zone, Hopefully I will get
out of this reading slump real soon, so I can start this adventure. 🙂
1.) Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead.
At first, I really didn’t want to read this series, because I am not
a fan of the whole Vampire gig. But after I was forced into it by my
sister, I fell in love! I just wish that I liked the Bloodlines Series just
as much… 😦
2.) The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender.
Years ago, I went into this book blind, so I didn’t even know that it
was fantasy/magical realism. And I must say, I wasn’t mad. It’s been
such a long time since I first read this book, I would LOVE to read it
again some time soon. Hopefully I still love it just as much! 🙂
3.) The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins.
I usually can’t find a book with characters, that are around my age
where everything isn’t about sex. So I was SO happy when I read
and LOVED this book! I can’t wait to see the movie in October!!
4.) Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk.
I can’t even tell you how much I LOVED this book! I would have
never guessed that I would have come across a book like this, and
love it so much. I have Invisible Monster Remix, which is in the format
Chuck Palahniuk originally wanted it in, so I need to get to that ASAP!
5.) The Murmurings by Carly Anne West.
There was just something about the cover, that called me in, and I had
to have it! It was a bit weird, but all in all, I think it was a great read.
It earned extra points, because it is set in Arizona. 😉
