Mon. | Dec. 19 – Reading Outside My Comfort Zone #AMonthofFaves2016 – Surprise Find(s) This Year
My comfort zone is fairly large ( or as large as I want it to be, mostly!) I read romance, women’s fiction, chick lit, dabble in historical fiction and read extensively in suspense, mystery and psych thriller.
I don’t take part in many audio books and books with paranormal elements and that is where I read out of my comfort zone this year.
Good As Gone by Amy Gentry (audio version).
Read by Karen Peakes
I loved this book. I felt that I would have loved it equally actually reading the book, but hearing Karen put voices to all the characters- the secrets, the bombshells, well.. I highly recommend.
And I will be looking for more Karen Peakes read books as I expand more into audio.
Ink and Bone by Lisa Unger
Lisa Unger captured my mystery/suspense loving hearing with In The Blood. Her latest 2 books have had a bit more paranormal elements than what I really want- and Ink and Bone especially. I loved the characters and the setting, but the paranormal elements did scare me a bit!
*What books did you read that were out of your comfort zone this year?*
Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,

Audiobooks were one of my out of comfort zone areas as well this year! And I’m not into paranormal either…
I’m really hoping to add more audio to my rotation next year!
I started reading more suspense/mysteries: I Let You Go, Behind Closed Doors, and The Girl From Home to name a few.
I have Behind Closed Doors and need to read it!
Like you, I don’t read outside of my comfort zone very often, but usually feel good about it when I do. Hillbilly Elegy and I’m Thinking of Ending Things were a couple that I talked about.
Paranormal? You’re brave! That is too far out for me!
I was kinda scared when I was reading the book!
I RARELY leave my comfort zone of historical fiction, mystery, and women’s fiction.
A few books had some hidden paranormal in them but not enough to make me stop reading. 🙂
ENJOY your day and week.
My A Month of Faves
I completely understand. I feel my comfort zone is fairly wide!
The stuff you don’t read is my comfort zone 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the audiobooks and hope you read more … don’t give up on light paranormal books 🙂
I def want to try more audio for next year!!!! 🙂
