Tiny Navajo Reads: Top Ten Books Enjoyed Outside My Comfort Zone


September 3, 2019 by TinyNavajo

Hi guys! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! TTT was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Today’s theme is a very interesting one. It’s about books that I’ve read outside of my comfort zone, meaning books in genres or about subjects I wouldn’t necessarily turn to for my pleasure reading. So, let’s see if I can come up with ten of them. :]

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Playing with Fire by Tess Gerritsen

The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo

The Book of M by Peng Shepherd

From Notting Hill with Love…Actually by Ali McNamara

And honestly…this is all that I can think of at the moment. A lot of these books are contemporary. That is not my favourite genre of reading, because I read to escape the world, not to be in it. The few contemporaries I have read have a very specific tropes in them which is why I choose to read them.

What are some of your favourite books outside of your comfort zone? Why did you read them? Comment below and let me know!

  1. Hmm that’s an interesting question because sometimes I like to read to think: what the actual.. is going on here😅. So that often means outside comfort zone. I have lately discovered the joy of thrillers though through John Grisham.

      It wasn’t one that I was expecting to like as much as I did, but it was about books and censoring so I figured I might as well give it a shot.

    I absolutely LOVED ‘Fahrenheit 451’ and I guess I can say it was a little bit outside of my comfort zone, since I don’t read that many classics and I usually prefer realistic stories to sci-fi/fantasy. One of the main times I went outside my reading comfort zone was with Dennis Lehane’s books. I almost never read mysteries but I impulsively checked out ‘Gone Baby Gone’ from the library and I just fell in love with his stuff. 🙂
