Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Ten Books I Enjoyed Recently (last year-ish) That Weren’t My Typical Genre/Type of Book.
I don’t think I have ten but I do have a few!
1.) Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I like to play video games, but I’ve never read a book centered around a video game until Ready Player One. It was great and so action packed.
2.) All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
This was my first and only historical fiction so far. This was a new genre for me. Ever since reading this one, it has started my interest in the genre and made me order more historical fiction books. I can’t wait to read them!
3.) Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
I don’t usually read non-fiction but after reading the synopsis I decided to give it a try. I was surprised by how relatable and funny it was.
4.) The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
This was a good, weird book. I don’t read a lot of classics and am trying to do that more. None of the characters in this book were relatable and Tom and Daisy were some of the worst people I’ve ever read about. But I was still able to enjoy the story. I liked Gatsby and the way the characters spoke. I would definitely read this one again.
5.) Illumine by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I don’t like sci-fi books. At least I thought I didn’t. After I read this book it changed my whole outlook on the genre. I want more books like this one!
I don’t read them at all really. Only once, but that’s because it was based on a book I love. These I picked up purely because they sounded interesting and I need to complete my 2015 Goodreads challenge. I am glad I read them whatever the reason.
6.) Black: The Birth of Evil by Ted Dekker
7.) The Boxcar Children (1-3) by Gertrude Warner
8.) Pandora: End of Days by
