Top Ten Tuesday-- Uncomfortable Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This weeks topic is books that I read that were out of my comfort zone.
This was really really hard to even come up with a few books. There aren't very many books I have read that are out of my comfort zone.

1. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma:
I think this is out of everyones comfort zone. Incest. But you must get over this and READ THIS BOOK! It is too amazing to not read it.

2. Night by Elie Wiesel:
Had to read this book in 8th grade. I'm not a huge fan of reading books about the Holocaust.

These are seriously the only books I can think of that I have actually read.

3. Diary of Anne Frank:
I've always wanted to read this because everyone talks about it, but just like Night it's a true story about the Holocaust. Don't think I can get myself to read that. Poor Anne.

Genres out of my comfort zone:
4. Westerns:
I'm not a western fan at all. I don't care for cowboys, I don't care about owning cowboy boots, and I don't like western books. I do like horses though. lol and Clint Eastwood movies. Hmm.... odd.

5. Books about aliens:
Just can't get into them. Only exception to this is The Host but come on, that hardly counts as an alien book.

I can't think of anything else. I can pretty much read most things and get into them. Being an English major forces you to read a lot of horrible stuff and forces you deal with it.


  1. Oh - I had to read 'Night' in high school too, I know what you mean, the subject matter definitely makes it an uncomfortable read!

  2. I included Forbidden too. I was surprised how much I loved this book and how much it affected me.

  3. Westerns and Aliens, yeah - me too LOL

  4. I can't read "Forbidden" because of the incest issue. I don't think I can see that in a positive light and give an honest review which is why I haven't picked it up.

  5. I think everyone should read at least one book about the Holocaust. We shouldn't forget.
    Here's my post

  6. I only read the first page of Night, since it was my friends book for High School and we didn't go to the same school at the time. Oh and The diary of Anne Frank, SO SO SO sad.


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
