Hey guys! It’s time for the Thursday post and today it is something that I was tagged by amazing Celinelingg! Thank you for the tag and please go pay a visit to her blog if you haven’t already.
The Out of My Comfort Zone book tag is originally created by emmabooks. The only rule for this one is:
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 not going to be picking books from Fantasy Genre. I’m not sure if I can even complete this tag. 🙈
♠ A book that is an exception when it comes to genres or elements you don’t typically like
Fahrenheit 451. I’m really not that into classics. For some reason they terrify me a little. I mean these are classics. Are you allowed to dislike them? Anyway, I really liked Fahrenheit 451 and want to buy it at some point.
♠ A book you enjoyed from a genre you previously held some stigma against
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. I’ve never read any kind of self-help books before this one. I always thought that these kind of books are nonsense and can’t help anyone. But let me tell you. This book opened my eyes for self-help books! I learned so much from this, and everything that I truly have to learn.
♠ A book you didn’t know was out of your comfort zone until you started reading it.
Little Fires Everywhere. It is a very hyped book so I guess I kind of knew it would be out of my comfort zone? Anyway, I still thought that the synopsis sounded interesting enough that I would enjoy reading this. But it really turned out to not be my cup of tea and I never finished it.
♠ 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?
Honestly, I don’t really have friends that read books. Well there is my sister, and of course this blogging community! But right now, I can’t think of any book I’ve read because of her. She has been suggesting that I should read Jo Nesbø’s books which are something that I wouldn’t normally read.
♠ A book that is out of your comfort zone, but you would like to read
I Am Malala. I don’t read biographies that much, if at all. But Malala’s story is something I really, really would like to read.
♠ A book/genre so outside of your comfort zone that you’ll probably never give it a chance
Fifty Shades Darker. Oh yeah, this is the second book. I have tried the first book, honestly because I didn’t have a clue what it was really about. I never reached 100 pages in that book and I will never ever open that or this one. 😀
Thank you once more to Celinelingg for tagging me! This was surprisingly hard one to complete. I thought there would be many books that are out of my comfort zone but while going through all my read books, surprisingly I have spread my reading tastes so much lately that I no longer read only YA fantasy.
