Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week’s Top Ten is books I read last year that were out of my comfort zone. Since I haven’t really read too much outside my comfort zone, I’m changing it slightly to Top Ten books outside my comfort zone I would like to read.
10. How Can I Help? – David Goldbloom. This is a well-being book about the life of a psychiatrist. It’s a field I have a lot of interest in and it’s supposed to be compassionate and realistic.
9. The Cuckoo’s Calling – Robert Galbraith. I don’t do a lot of mystery outside of YA but this one has been on my radar even before I knew it was JK Rowling.
8. The Nightingale – Kristin Hannah. So many people have told me this is the best book they read last year.
7. Open Heart, Open Mind – Clara Hughes. I haven’t done too many bios in the past but Clara Hughes is a name I not only know, I’ve followed for her career.
6. Breaking Away – Patrick O’Sullivan. Another bio, this time combining my love of reading with my love of hockey. This seems like an emotional read.
5. Hardwired – Meredith Wild. I usually stay away from the romance section unless I know there’s a new Abbi Glines or J Lynn that just came out but this one keeps catching my eye when I do go there.
4. The Magicians – Lev Grossman. I keep seeing the previews for the TV show and it looks good.
3. Outlander – Diana Gabaldon. This time I have seen the show and it’s soooo good.
2. The Rosie Project – Graeme Simsion. I’ve heard the main character described as Sheldon and Penny from The Big Bang Theory, which is enough for me to be interested.
1. Black Butler – Yana Toboso. Manga is really out of my comfort zone and I’m not sure I’ll like it but I do want to give it a try.
