I honestly don’t really know what my usual genre is any more! I’d still say I’m a contemporary girl at heart though, with contemporary YA as my easy-read go-to. So you won’t find those below!
1. Illuminae – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Honestly I thought this book would be impossible for me to read with it’s dossier format, but I adored it! It did take a little while ot wrap my head around but it was well worth it. You can read my full review on it right here.
2. The Secret History – Donna Tartt
I don’t generally tend towards literary fiction, but this is one book I just couldn’t get out of my head. I was very quickly recommending it to a lot of people I knew, and though it’s not everybody’s cup of tea it certainly drew me in to the story and kept me flicking the pages!
3. Becoming – Michelle Obama
This one is a it cheeky because while I don’t read too many, I do genuinely like to read memoirs of people whose lives I sort of know, or who I know of. I adored reading Michelle’s story and she is such an inspiring lady! A little too inspiring, maybe don’t read this if you don’t want to compelled to do a little more with your life, because I felt a little bit useless afterwards (in an empowered, girl-power kind of way, if that’s even possible?).
So there we go, three somewhat recent reads of mine that weren’t in my usual easy-read genres but which I loved regardless!
Do you have a go-to genre & what is it? What books have you loved outside that genre?
Until next week,
