Top Ten Books I Enjoyed Recently That Weren't My Typical Genre

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme started over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they have a specific topic for a top ten list. Link up, visit some new blogs and add to your ever growing TBR list! This week's topic is:

Top Ten Books I Enjoyed Recently That Weren't My Typical Genre

Erm, Top Eight, actually. I could not think of just two more! Because honestly, I rarely do read outside of my typical genre. But I think this list is proof that I should do so more often, as I loved a lot of these and a few even made my Top Ten Favourites of 2015!

The Martian
Does My Head Look Big in This?

Quite a few of these I read because they were book club picks, so yay for book club! While Does My Head Look Big in This? and Undertow are both YA, which is my usual genre, each have subject matters I felt I'm inclined to avoid. I'm also an avid reader of M/M romance, but nothing quite like the Captive Prince trilogy. I wish there were more like this I could read, as it's a fantastic series. I very, very rarely read non-fiction so Pale Blue Dot was definitely a feat for me. I read it because my Dad asked me to and quite enjoyed it. Still, my father never remembers I actually did read it and makes digs before I have to remind him again. Dads, right? Next he'll try to quiz me as proof that I finished it.

What books have you enjoyed that are more outside your comfort zone? Have you read any of the above?


  1. All new to me reads! Seeing a lot of this today! LOL!

  2. The Captive Prince Series is on TBR, I am hoping to get around to it sometime this year. To much reading to be done.

  3. I've heard such good things about Ready Player One - glad you enjoyed it!
