Ten Book I Enjoyed Recently That Weren’t My Typical Genre

Posted February 23, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Top Ten Tuesday / 58 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created  at The Broke and the Bookish.
his week the topic is  Ten Book I Enjoyed Recently That Weren’t My Typical Genre. Well that first means defining my typical genre. I guess they would be contemporaries, suspense/thrillers and celebrity memoirs. So here are my 10 (ok 11!) Book I enjoyed outside my typical genres.

Ten Books Outside My Typical Genre I Enjoyed



I have loved both of these series so much. There was a lot of hype and the fact that I don’t really read fantasy kept me away for a while but I am glad I finally picked them up.



I like to read some non-fiction every now and again. All three of these were powerful in their own way. Well worth the read (or listen which is how I prefer non-fiction).

Science Fiction


I never really thought I would like science fiction and maybe I normally don’t but these two were some of my favorites last year.

Cozy Mystery


This was such a cute and cozy book. I don’t always read these types but will definitely more in the future.

What are your typical genres? What are some great reads you have read outside your typical genres?

  1. Ready Player One!!! I always forget about that book. But I LOVE the 80’s, so I really want to read it!! Also YAY to The Lunar Chronicles. I SO didn’t think I would like those books… I mean, cyborg Cinderella??? That’s nothing like what I usually would go for. Also what is with the mystery books with the whimsical cat and dog covers? They are everywhere I go lately and I’m so confused as to what they are. (Not saying it’s a bad thing, I just legit do not know what the deal is with them…. am I missing something??)

  2. Ready Player One- nod. Loved all the references and it was just fun. Plus I want an OASIS LOL. And Rest Ye Murdered Gentlemen looks fun too… I remember seeing that one around Christmastime and considering it. Maybe next Christmas! I do like a cozy once in a while, surprisingly.

  3. I adore the Lunar Chronicles series, although I put off reading CINDER for the longest time because it just seemed too sci fi for me. I’m glad I got over that because it’s one of my favorite series ever. Haven’t read the rest of the books you listed, but READY PLAYER ONE is on my TBR mountain chain. I’ll get to it someday …

  4. For good or for bad, I don’t read enough outside of my favorite genre to have participated in yesterday’s TTT. Ha! Actually, they may not be true but I was so skeptical that I didn’t even bother looking. I’m totally a contemporary girl. Totally. And the more romance the better. Throw in tons of emotion and heartache (and some angst) and I’m thrilled. What can I say, if a book manages to batter and bruise my heart… I love it. I did love A Court of Thorns and Roses so I’m thinking I should give fantasy more of a try… as long as there’s plenty of romance. 🙂
