TTT: Out of the Box

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is “Ten Book I Enjoyed Recently (last yearish) That Weren’t My Typical Genre/Type of Book (or that was out of your comfort zone).”

I tend to stay inside my own little “classics” / cozy mysteries / YA fantasies / kid lit box. Here are some great books from outside that box.

Contemporary / Realistic Fiction:

  1. The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick
  2. Sorta Like a Rock Star by Matthew Quick
  3. Devoted by Jennifer Mathieu (I’m actually getting ready to re-read this one via digital audiobook!)
  4. Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid


  1. Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith

Southern Gothic:

  1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  2. Winter’s Bone by Daniel Woodrell

Graphic Novel:

  1. Zita the Space Girl series by Ben Hatke
  2. Cleopatra in Space series by Mike Maihack


  1. Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell

    Some of these books look really interesting. Thanks for putting together this list. I think I have found some to add to my TBR.
