Top Ten Tuesday – Not My Usual Read

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Ten Books I Enjoyed Recently (last yearish) That Weren’t My Typical Genre/Type of Book (or that was out of your comfort zone). As you may have guessed from my reviews that I read a wide array of books and genres, and am pretty open to almost anything. That being said, there are some genres and types of books that I don’t gravitate towards; mysteries, historical fiction and the like. But I have read some stellar books recently that forced me out of my usual reading habits. So in no particular order here are the 10 11 best out of my comfort zone books from the last year. Links go to my reviews.
