Ten Five Books That Were Out Of My Comfort Zone
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
In seventh grade, when I read this, I was such a fantasy and realistic fiction addict that I never read anything else! My teacher convinced me to give Austen a go, and I've been a diehard fan ever since! (I like to think I'm a more diverse reader now, too.)
2. I am the Cheese by Robert Cormier
This book is definitely a psychological thriller. I loved it and couldn't put it down, but I read it at way too young an age and freaked myself out!
3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Jo March is one of my favorite characters ever. (She's like a contemporary of Elizabeth Bennet.) My mom actually recommended this to me a few years back, and while we tend not to have similar reading tastes, I loved this!
4. Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
And this is an instance where my mom's taste and my own differs. I didn't think this was a bad book, not at all, but I wasn't inspired to go read the sequels.
5. The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
This is more of an adult fantasy book, I guess, but it was great.
