Friday Favorites: Books Outside Your Usual Genre

friday favorites


Hello, fellow bookworms!

Today’s post is a tag that was created by Something of the Book and she has a whole list of Friday Favorites to follow. They are awesome and it is a fun way to find new books with a twist and see how others have answered it!

I am one to always pick up Fantasy. It is my go-to genre and one that I don’t ever see myself not ever reading. There are times that I do venture out of my comfort and am surprised by the books I read. So here is my list of books that are outside of my usual genre!


1.) Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco Series

I have been obsessed with this series since I finished the first book. I am so excited for the third book but so sad this series is coming to an end!

2.) Wild Blue Wonder by Carlie Sorosiak

Here’s the thing, I tend to not like Contemporary. It’s a love/hate type of relationship. I did absolutely love this one and you should definitely check it out!

3.) Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson Series

If you didn’t see this one coming then you must not have me on Instagram, haha. I love this contemporary/mystery and can’t wait for the third book!

4.) Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

I read this one recently and absolutely loved it! Creepy at times but so good!

5.) The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas

Yes, another one by the same author! I have been getting into thrillers and hers are just wonderful and really help to get me out of my reading slumps.

    1. I took a chance on it a few months ago during my reading slump and loved it! The third one is coming out, I believe, early next year! If you do end up reading it, can’t wait to see what you think of it!

    1. Truly Devious is a great series! I am looking forward to the third book in the series coming next year. It’s definitely a good time to start reading it!


    1. I definitely get sticking to Fantasy! I’ve been trying to venture out more and have found some awesome books that way! It’s just hard to get away from what you love, haha.

      1. I think that’s what I’ve been doing for the majority of this year. I’ve been reading a lot of contemporaries and thrillers. It feels so good coming back to fantasy again! Lol
