Friday Favorites: Books Outside your Usual Genre

Friday Favorites: Books Outside your Usual Genre

Thank you so much to Something of the Book for staying on top of this weekly meme list! I know if I was in charge of something as massive as this, I’d feel so much pressure to have everything planned out like two years in advance, which is not something I can do with something like this! So major shout out, and go check out the rest of the topics for July and hop on in!

So basically, I am not a huge fan of romance novels, or at least the ones that usually have a half naked guy on the cover or something. I know, shoot me. But lately I’ve noticed that I have read some novels classified as “romance” that I actually enjoyed, so I’m going to list the ones I read, and the ones I want to read here!

I’m actually surprised that Natasha felt love for Daniel after less than 24 hours, but I feel like I would have felt the same way. I liked this one.


I can’t stop talking about this book, seriously! Mixing historical fiction with romance must be something I’m down with because I absolutely loved this novel so much.


Everyone keeps telling me that I have to read this, so I’m gonna freaking do it! I swear it.


I’ve been sleeping on Maurene Goo so let me start off with this one first.


The first book was surprisingly enjoyable, although I read it a year ago or so. I’d like to finish this one and see what Kendra Donovan is going to do to get back to her own time.

This one was actually kind of hard! They may not have been the typical romance novels, but they are tagged as being romance novels in some aspect, so it totally counts, right? What genre would you say is outside of your usual genre? Let me know!

  1. Ahhhhh PLEASE read Evelyn Hugo! I was so worried to read it, but I swear, it’s worth all the hype. It’s just a fun and easy, but also surprisingly deep and heart-wrenching book. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it!

  2. For me it’s non-fiction, horror and anything with magical realism. I’m a huge sucker for romance though haha I loved the books you’ve listed! Evelyn Hugo is amazing and I hope you enjoy it when you read it. TJR is a queen ๐Ÿ˜

    1. Oh yeah non-fiction and horror are not on my list! I can’t do horror though! I remember reading The Merciless and that really freaked me out lol. I don’t even know if I want to finish the series even though I’ve heard it’s really good. Oh yay! I’m glad you liked the books I listed. I think this one was a little hard for me but I’m glad that I got to explore some other books ๐Ÿ™‚ I will let you know when I get to Evelyn Hugo!

      1. I feel you on the horror. Like, it’s a genre I very rarely dabble in but when I’m feeling stupidly brave I’ll pick something up and take forever to read it coz I’ll only read it during the day in small doses ๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. AHH EVELYN HUGO. I love this book so, so much, such a fantastic read, I hope you will love it too ๐Ÿ˜€
    If I had to pick one, I’d say… maybe horror, that is a genre I’m not drawn to naturally and would probably be too freaked out and scared to ever read haahaha ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Everyone keeps telling me I need to read it ASAP, so I just put a hold on it at my library! I hope I get it before I go to Hawaii but if not, I hope they at least hold it for me until I come back! I’m sure I will love it since so many of my book blogger friends are recommending it ๐Ÿ™‚

      That’s me too, Marie! It’s so hard for me to read anything horror!
