Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Hi guys! I know I haven’t been posting very much recently, but I’ve been really busy with school lately. I hope you’re all having a lovely Tuesday evening!
This week’s topic is your top 10 books you’ve enjoyed recently that weren’t in your typical genre or were out of your comfort zone. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to start reading more books that weren’t in my preferred genres (contemporary romance, mystery/thriller, coming of age), so this TTT prompt is in perfect timing! Some of the genres I don’t reach for quite as often include fantasy, science fiction, and adult fiction.

As you can see, I obviously do NOT venture very much outside my chosen genre. Probably about 95% of the books I read are contemporary. And that’s completely fine! I often do love reading books in other genres such as fantasy and science fiction, but I know my heart will always belong to contemporary romance and coming of age novels.
Did anyone else struggle with this topic as much as I did? What do you consider your typical genre? What YA fantasy/sci-fi books would you recommend to a newbie like me? (I’ve read Throne of Glass and the Lunar Chronicles, but that’s about it….)
