Top Ten Tuesday (9)

Top 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
Pride and Prejudice
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
I Am the Cheese
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
Little Women
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
Little House in the Big Woods (Little House, #1)
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
The Girl Who Chased the Moon
This is more of an adult fantasy book, I guess, but it was great. 

Only five this week! What books have you read that were out of your comfort zone? Leave a link/comment! (:
