Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists and let’s face it, so am I!
Top Ten Books I Read that were Outside of My Comfort Zone
- Sleeping Beauty Series by A.N. Roquelaure Traumatizing series. I had to force myself to finish book one.
- The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown I’m not much into whoddunit books but I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed this one. I’ve always wanted to take any of Dan Brown’s books and book myself a flight to Europe – take a tour of all the places he mentioned here and in Angels & Demons.
- The Last Temptation of Christ by Nikos Kazantzakis I am a product of Catholic School education. On my senior year, I was to do a book report of my own choosing. I chose this and needless to say, it was rejected by my English teacher.
- Harold Robbins Books I was twelve when I discovered Harold Robbins. It didn’t take very long before I realize that his books are definitely not intended for my age bracket at the time. I remember being castigated by my aunt who told me I shouldn’t be reading his books so I found a way to read them secretly.
- Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer This series started my love affair with YA books. I’ve not looked back since.
- Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R. Ward Much like Twilight, this series by JR Ward paved the way to so many paranormal romance books on my shelves.
- Graceling by Kristin Cashore I wasn’t big on reading fantasy books – until I read this.
- The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan My very first zombie novels! I’ve been collecting them ever since.
- The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins My first taste of dystopian. I remember reading the first book and basically forcing everyone I know to read it.
- Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder Ms. Schroeder introduced me to verse books. So few words, yet so powerful. I have been reading these books since and loving each and every one of them!
