*twirls about as she dusts off another tag to do* I’m going to conquer this tag mountain ok, I will do thissss. Let’s roll on out of our comfort zone with this tag, as I have to eliminate a genre and then for my answers none of the books can be from that genre. *looks about nervously*
- You have to pick ONE GENRE that you frequently read about… and then, you can’t use ANY books from that genre while answering the questions!
So I’m actually discarding a sub genre ahem…since I read a lot of this sub genre. Urban Fantasy bye bye. We’re also chucking Paranormal out too since those genres over lap a lot.
A Book That Is An Exception When It Comes To Genres Or Elements You Don’t Typically Like
Erm…The Vamps and Little Mix’s autobiographies as well as The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire by Dan and Phil. I’m not a huge fine of autobiography type books, however if it’s about a band and it’s written by the band then I’m down for that. I find hearing about their story, how they got to where they are super interesting. As well seeing photos you’d not see otherwise. TABINOF was also quirky and something ordinarily I’d not pick up, mostly due to it’s layout being a mix up of words, drawings, photos etc.
A Book You Enjoyed From A Genre You Previously Held Some Stigma Against
Doing It! by Hannah Witton – non fic and written by a YouTuber who talks openly about sex, health (both sexual and mental) and much more this was one of the few books I’ve enjoyed which falls into the non fic category.
A Book You Didn’t Know Was Out Of Your Comfort Zone Until You Started Reading It
Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amy Kaufman. I was NOT expecting the layout to be well what it was. I appreciated it but it was a bit of oh damn what am I reading right now? moment. As I’m used to your standard layout of just words.
Pick A Friend Who Motivates You To Pick Up Books You Might Not Normally Be Interested In – Is There A Book They Convinced You To Give A Try?
My irl bestie, we’ve been best mates for over a decade now, and we’re both readers. However whilst we overlap in many genres, she does like thrillers/crime/mysteries whereas I prefer to consume that genre on TV. She did get me to try We Were Liars by E Lockhart though, and it was good but also really not my cuppa tea.
A Book That Is Out of Your Comfort Zone, But You Would Like to Read
Romance. Like shove all the adult romance books in here as they’re all sorta out of my zone but I’m also super curious…the covers kind of put me off though. I don’t want a shirtless dude staring at me on a cover thank you.
A Book/Genre So Outside Of Your Comfort Zone That You’ll Probably Never Give It A Chance
I mean I used to say I’d never read Sci-Fi or Non-Fiction now look at me, I’ve read both so I mean I’m not saying never. BUT historical fiction. I’d probably fall asleep after the first page to be honest, historical fiction just has never appealed to me unless it’s paired up with fantasy/paranormal things *shrugs*
Consider yourself tagged, if you’re reading this and haven’t done this one before!
Wheeee so which genre is out of your comfort zone? Let me know in the comments, and do we share any similar answers?
