It’s Tuesday and also the first day back to school for my daughter…She’s in 2nd grade now and I’m just…so not ready for this lol. Everything is happening so fast and I’ve been crying for weeks over this ugh. 🙂 Let’s wish Queen Juliet a happy first day of school.
Tuesday also means Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s theme: September 3: Books I Enjoyed That Are Outside of My Comfort Zone (i.e., a genre you don’t typically read or subject matter you’re not usually drawn to)
This is kind of hard for me since I usually stick to genres I like but I do think I have a few 🙂
I remember reading this and thinking oh yeah, this is going to be some amazing horror and yes, while there was horror. A lot of it, there was also a sci-fi aspect I was not expecting and enjoyed the hell out of.
I love mysteries but I’m not a great fan of crime novels, especially procedural ones. This is an exception. I was gripped the entire time and was on the edge. It’s deliriously good. ALSO, I read a series out of order which is usually a big no no for me. And enjoyed it!! That’s how good it was.
I have never been a fan of choose your own adventure novels. *Takes deep breath* Is this a safe space? I don’t know they just never did anything for me and kind of made me anxious. This one….is amazing and hilarious. Choose the man of yo dreams ya’ll. One arc will never leave my mind and that’s of your character hooking up with somebody who refers to his manhood as haggis. Gold, pure gold.
I keep saying I don’t like Fantasy but then my favorite books prove me wrong again and again. Ella Enchanted is a STAPLE in children’s fantasy but my favorite of Gail Carson has to be the The Two Princesses of Bamarre. I actually haven’t read it since I was a young Amanda! So it’s definitely time for a reread.
Okay, there’s no way I can hit 10 but this is a great enough list 🙂 Have you read any of these books? Show me your Top Tuesday!
