This meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic is Top Ten Tuesday #73: Books I Enjoyed Recently (last yearish) That Weren’t My Typical Genre/Type of Book (or that was out of your comfort zone)
I am a pretty good judge of books, and don’t tend to leave my comfort zone often. After searching my Goodreads shelves, I could only find 5 books for this topic!

1. The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle 

2.  Symptoms of Being Human by Jeff Garvin 
I learned SO much from this book. It opened my eyes. See my review HERE!

3.  Up to This Pointe by Jennifer Longo
A book about a girl who goes to Antarctica? This one definitely isn’t my typical read. My review will be posted soon!

4.  The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner 
I can already tell that this is going to be one of my favorite books from 2016. I really didn’t think I would like it, but wow, it was incredible. Stay tuned for my review! 🙂

5. A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro 
Thrillers/mysteries aren’t my favorite, but ASIC was amazing! Review to come.

Do you have any of these books featured in your TTT this week? Have you read any of them? Let me know in the comments below!

    Haven’t read any but have heard of a most of them. I really really want to read A study in Charlotte and now the Accident Season. I’m still on the fence about reading The Serpent King though… I know it’s gotten fantastic reviews but I just don’t know if it’s for me. I think I’ll wait to read your review better I decide on Up to this Point. Great post, Nori! Thanks! 🙂

  2. I have an ARC of The Accident Season sitting in my TBR pile. I want to read it so badly, but other books keep jumping in front of it. I’ll have to take time soon. href=””>My TTT

  3. I didn’t have any books for this topic, so kudos to you for finding five! I’m excited for A Study in Charlotte and The Serpent King. Glad you liked them. 🙂

  4. I haven’t read any of these, but a lot of them are on my TBR! The Serpent King is the one I’m most excited to read though because it just looks and sounds amazing and everyone keeps raving about it. 🙂

  5. I keep seeing The Serpent King on blogs and on twitter and hear nothing but good things. I wouldn’t have considered it because it isn’t my usual read but I think I’m going to have to give it a chance. I took a look at your review for The Accident Season and your experience enchanted me, I am so intrigued now that I’m adding it to my TBR immediately. So thank you for bringing new books to my attention. I have really enjoyed this weeks topic for that very reason.

  6. I keep hearing about The Serpent King and I have no idea what it’s about O.o but I keep seeing that people like it, so I guess I’ll have to look it up xD I also saw Up to the Pointe at my library but I have no idea what that’s about either…But I DID read the Accident Season, that one was crazy! 😀

    I didn’t think A Study in Charlotte was my thing but it looks like I should give it a chance! I haven’t heard much about The Serpent King but I think I might try that too! As usual, thanks for the recs Nori!

  8. The Accident Season is one that I want to read for myself, and it sounds so promising here as well! I LOVED The Symptoms of Being Human as you already know, and I also recently finished and enjoyed A Study in Charlotte. I’m glad you could too 😀

    I’m right in the thick of things as I currently devour The Serpent King, and I must say it totally caught me by surprise as well!

  10. I need to read The Accident Season! I’ve had some trouble getting into it – I have no idea why. But I will have to give it a try since it sounds like you really enjoyed it!
