Top Ten Books I've Read That Are Outside My Norm

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and The Artsy Reader Girl.

1. Wilder Girls by Rory Power - this veers towards horror/thriller, but I loved it!

2. Once and Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy - this does have the fantasy I love, but it also has a lot of outer space, which I don't read *as* much

3. The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg - I don't usually read much music-inspired books, but I loved Eulberg's other books!

4. Believarexic by J.J. Johnson - this book is a little different stylistically than what I usually read, but it's gorgeously written!

5. The Only Thing to Fear by Caroline Tung Richmond - this is a great alternate history book

6. Asylum by Madeleine Roux - this falls into the horror genre, which I usually avoid, but I couldn't resist the actual pictures from real asylums!

7. The Madmen's Daughter by Megan Shepherd - I don't read much historical fiction that doesn't also have a fantasy element, but I enjoyed this book

8. Rush by Eve Silver - Rush has a very scifi/aliens vibe, but it also has enough general paranormal elements that it pulled me in

9. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot - this is one of the few non-fiction books that I have read and enjoyed, but at times it practically reads like fiction!

10. The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White - one more scary book. Despite how often they're coming up in this list, I usually don't read many. Also, the writing in this is some of the best I've ever read!

  1. I really need to read Wilder Girls sometime.

    And The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was fabulous. Have you seen the film based on it?
