Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Book I Enjoyed Recently That Werent My Typical Genre

I wanted to alter this TTT to be about 10 books I have read that weren't like my usual or typical reads.

Cry Silent Tears by Joe Peters. Although this genre always interests me, I don't read this genre a lot, I often get inquisitive about the lives of others but not so often that I will emotionally wreck myself by reading the books about their experiences.

This was a really enjoyable read and Kathryn Rogers has become an author I will continue to look for work from because I loved this book so much. However it wasn't like my usual reads and it was refreshing for it to be that way.
Although I speak some German and continue to work on it, I would never usually read a book that is about the war, I'm not entirely sure why, it interests me and I think that and my part of knowing German made this book a nice one for me to read.
Now this book was thoroughly gripping and interesting, it would never usually be a book id read if it hadn't of sounded like Tate from AMHS. Along with that reason I think I was inquisitive about the way it would end and I don't regret reading it even though it isn't my usual topic or genre of book.
I think Risen being a different genre to my usual reads kind of encouraged me to read it even more than I already wanted to after reading the synopsis. I have to admit it was a better book than I had imaged it was going to be.
I love zombies and such like there's no tomorrow and I also loved the World War Z film more than the book but I think I wanted to compare the book to film and well they were nowhere near. It was hard for me to read but from what I understood, I liked it.
Well this book was certainly enjoyable for the most part, it wasn't something I would of usually read but I would totally read it all over again.
This book was spectacular, and unusual which attracted me. I'm thankful for Chloe and her friend for buying me this book and The Spooks Apprentice for my 16th birthday because they were enjoyable to read and I cant wait to read more.
I don't regret getting this book when it was less than £1, as much as it wasn't my usual genre and the 2nd book in a trilogy it was very gripping and I love it enough to look into to getting the first and third book.

The Sookie Stackhouse Series, ive recently just finished number 5 out of the 11 I own and I'm in love with them but I'm usually not reading this genre either, I'm really up to reading more fantasy genre'd books in the future though.

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke And The Bookish

    1. I would say to definitely give it a good read. It isn't a terrible book. Happy ttt

  3. Love the variety of books in your list! The Book Thief is one of my all time favorites! Also, the Sookie Stackhouse books are pretty fun - or at least until somewhere around book 7 or 8. :)

    Check out my TTT.

    1. I'm glad you love the variety. The Book Thief was a great read and I can understand why its on of many peoples favourites.

      IM currently on the 6th book from the Sookie Stackhouse series so I will have to look forward to 7 and 8 to see if I can spot where they lose their fun' ness thanks for the pre warning.
