Happy Tuesday! I think I know my reading habits well enough to usually predict what books I will like and what books I won’t. But that wasn’t always the case. Also … sometimes when I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone, I’ve ended up loving a book, learning something new about writing or storytelling, or at least appreciating that I read it. This week I dived into my goodreads archives, and came up with these ten books that, frankly, I’m surprised I ever decided to read.

If ever I read Stephanie’s latest book, it’ll be able to fit in a topic like this! I’m so not a horror story reader/movie goer, but since I so liked Perkin’s ‘Anna,’ I did pick her newest up.
Yeah. I am the biggest wuss about horror that I know, but I could handle it. It had all the things I love about the Anna/Lola/Isla books – just with a lot of suspense and gore thrown in!
I’m reading Stephanie’s book soon and I’m intrigued to see what I make of it.
I’ll be interested to see what you think!
The Silmarillion was okay but man is it dense, I probably don’t remember very much of it! And There’s Someone Inside Your House *nods* I wasn’t crazy about it, but as time goes on I remember it even less and less fondly, sadly enough.
Oooof I could barely get the The Simarillion, but had to read it for a class. And I never read horror, so There’s Someone Inside Your House was a stretch for me – but I still enjoyed it!
I’m surprised I haven’t read There’s Someone Inside Your House yet, because I’m a huge horror fan and I was actually stepping out of my comfort zone when I read her contemporary novels. However, I’ve heard pretty meh things about it… I think this one’s going to stay sat on the TBR for a while.
Here’s my TTT.
I really liked it, but I hate horror so I don’t know if my opinion would mean that much to you!
Great list! It’s amazing what we can find when we step out of our comfort zone, especially when it comes to what we read. Romola and The Passion of Dolssa are both on my TBR.
I have 11/22/63 on my TBR because I love Stephen King! I really enjoy Philip K. Dick as well, although I haven’t read that particular one yet.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
I’ve only read 11/22/63 and There’s Somebody Inside Your House… which isn’t surprising for me because I like thrillers and chillers. 😉
I loved 11/22/63 even though I am not a Stephen King fan. Fantastic book.
An interesting, eclectic list. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the novel The Art of Fielding, which included frequent reference to the work of Herman Melville, but I’ve still had no inclination to read Moby Dick 🙂
