Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is Ten Books I Enjoyed Recently (last yearish) That Weren’t My Typical Genre/Type of Book (or that was out of your comfort zone). I decided to change it up a bit, and go with Ten Books I Want To Read that are out of my comfort zone. Basically, this is just me wondering about a lot of hyped books and a little bit of less hyped books, and staring at them on my TBR, wondering which one I should buy next. Be prepared: there’s a LOT of fantasy and retellings here. Don’t forget to click on the title of the books to read their fabulous synopsis!
1 • The Lunar Chronicles, Marissa Meyer
I KNOW, everyone’s talking about that series, and I haven’t read it yet. I missed the hype train, clearly, but well. I have to say, I don’t read a lot of retellings, and, hm, androids either, BUT I’m definitely going to read that soon, I’m so curious about it.
2 • The Darkest Part of The Forest, Holly Black
Fantasy is one of the genres I want to read more of,this year, and this book seems SO weird, I don’t know if it’s really right up my alley, or not…But I do know that cover is gorgeous and I want to read what’s behind it.
3 • Splintered, A.G. Howard
4 • The Raven Boys, Maggie Stiefvater
YES I will read that book, and I put it there because it’s fantasy and ghosts and weirdness and I’m all up for weirdness now even if it’s not what I’m used to read about.
5 • Lock & Mori, Heather W. Petty
Yet again another retelling, aren’t I FULL of surprises? I found out about this book not that long ago, and it seems filled with mystery and ups and downs, just what I like.
6 • The Reader, Traci Chee
This is another fantasy, but damn, that synopsis really got me, I’m intrigued, and I’m willing to step out of my contemporary comfort zone to try that one out.
7 • A Darker Shade of Magic, V. E. Schwab
Everyone is talking about that book. EVERYONE. And I haven’t read it *goes hide in shame*. I guess it’s not the kind of book I’m always used to, it being historical fiction AND fantasy. BUT I want to read it now.
8 • Six of Crows, Leigh Bardugo
Hello, hype, once again you’re making me SO curious. This book is clearly out of my comfort zone, and I’m yet still wondering whether I should read it or not. TELL ME.
9 • The Wrath and The Dawn, Renee Ahdieh
A retelling, because, well, why not?! This one’s loved by TONS of people, and the cover is gorgeous, the story seems epic, and I’ve been told that the romance is great. I LOVE romance too, so… .
10 • The Mortal Instruments series, Cassandra Clare
HELLO THERE. I don’t even know by now if this book is out of my comfort zone or not. I read the first book, then I stopped. But now I feel like restarting again. The real question is, that series, or the other series ?! HELP ME.
