#AMonthOfFaves: Reading out of my comfort zone


My comfort zone in books: women’s fiction, mystery/suspense, psychological thriller, cozy mystery and light romance.

I rarely dabble in the non-fiction. I don’t read erotica. Science fiction- ehh. I recognize my strengths and likes in reading- and I stick with them.

So today’s topic is a bit hard for me to chat about because I don’t read out of my comfort zone- then Katie H reminded me to think outside the box- so here goes!

Wait- be sure and check out Tanya @ Girlxoxo and Andi @ Estella’s Revenge!

Now, here we go:

Book with Different Format:

Love And Miss Communication by Elyssa Friedland:

Each chapter began with a picture of an phone pictured above. Since the main character was addicted to technology- it was cute- and a little outside the box.


Violence in Fiction:

Both books had that psychological thriller feel that I love- but the level of violence/the graphic-ness of books disturbed me on levels. I enjoyed the story lines- but after reading both books needed a heavy dose of happy reading to recover.


Self Help:

you are a bad ass

I rarely read self-help books. In fact the last one I read was the He’s Just Not That Into You book. I’m still reading this one (and going back and re-reading certain chapters at times) but Jen’s take on things- it makes sense to me. Plus- who can resist that cover?!


What book did you read in 2015 that pushed you out of your comfort zone?



Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,

T @ Traveling With T

    • Yay! I have heard so much about The Martian- but I haven’t read it (or watched the movie!) Have you read Ready Player One by Ernest Cline? That one was def a out of my comfort zone when I read it a couple of years ago- but I really liked it!
