Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was books I enjoyed that were outside my comfort zone.

While I am grossly under-representing the following titles, I’ve also tried to explain them in a way that feels unappealing to me. Considering that there are books out there exactly like the following that I come across and don’t add to my tbr further exemplifies why it is so strange that I still absolutely loved these in particular. Taste is weird, man.

♥ a mystery thriller set in Europe with strong religious undertones (Angels & Demons)
♥ a murder mystery conspiracy thriller set in Sweden (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo)
♥ a medieval epic fantasy (A Game of Thrones)
♥ a nonfiction social history of the internet (How the Internet Happened)
♥ a fundamentalist religious memoir (Jesus Land)

♥ a sci-fi thriller set on Mars (The Martian)
♥ a young adult mystery fantasy (Neverworld Wake)
♥ chick-lit with an awful cover (Still Thinking of You)
♥ a posthumously published medical memoir (When Breath Becomes Air)
♥ a historical paranormal fantasy romance (The Witch of Willow Hall)
