Welcome to the debut of my new feature…Breaking Out of My Comfort Zone! This feature is all about trying out new genres of books that I wouldn’t necessarily be motivated to read on my own. Each Breaking Out of My Comfort Zone post will be focused on a specific genre, and I’ll be sharing my past experiences with that genre and asking for advice about choosing new books to read.
I consider myself to be a pretty well-rounded reader in terms of genres. There aren’t very many that I haven’t tried out at least once…but there are still a bunch for which I consider myself to be a “beginner,” and aren’t necessarily in my reading comfort zone. So I’m hoping to branch out a little bit more with this new feature…and I hope that you guys will help me!
Each time, I’ll list some books in a genre that I’ve been meaning to read, and there will be a poll at the end for you to vote on which one I should check out next! I’ll then read the book you guys chose and write a follow-up post telling you how I felt about it.
The first Breaking Out of My Comfort Zone genre that I’m going to talk about is fantasy.
Even though I’ve read a few fantasy books, or books that have had fantasy elements in them, I still consider myself to be a beginner in this genre. The most fantasy-ish books that I’ve read have been the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin, American Gods by Neil Gaiman, and Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen. Those are the only books/series I’ve read that I would consider their main genre (outside of “YA” or “Adult”) to be fantasy.
I have some fantasy books on my TBR list that I’ve been meaning to read, and those are…
