BOOK TAG ✨ Out of My Comfort Zone

Time to get out of my comfort zone!

Jess and Teagan at Fiction No Chaser tagged me to this one! Their blog is awesome, by the way – they have all kinds of high-quality bookish content over there! So go and give their blog a follow 🙂

One Major Rule

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!

Okay… so I think I read Contemporary the most… which mean that I can’t use any Contemporary books for this one! 😫


A book that is an exception when it comes to genres or elements you don’t typically like.

Maybe this is kind of cliché (only because I say this a lot!), but I’m going to say Illuminae.


I don’t normally like Science Fiction for some reason. However, The Illuminae Files series is an exception because the format of the books is really interesting and everything is just executed very well throughout the book.

A book you enjoyed from a genre you previously held some stigma against.

Ahh, this is where it gets hard for me because I realize I haven’t actually read that many books!

I’m not sure if this counts, but have you ever looked at a book and thought, “Well, that sounds terrible,” even though you have no idea what it’s about? The Raven Boys was one of those books for me.


I mean, it was a mixture of modern magic/paranormal/romance/a bunch of other things. It just sounded like too much.

But I had to read it for school almost 2 years ago, and I actually really enjoyed it! 🙂

A book you didn’t know was out of your comfort zone until you started reading it.

Okay, there’s a very specific reason why The 5th Wave is out of my comfort zone.


I like dystopian, I guess. Under normal circumstances, I would normally not have a problem with this kind of book.

But when I read it (several years ago, so I may butcher this), I never realized that it was told from 2 different POVs.

I must have skipped the part when the narration said the new character was a guy, because I was so confused for the entire book. Two different characters were going through two very different situations, but I thought they were the same person!! Do you see my dilemma?

I don’t even like multiple POVs, so maybe I wouldn’t have enjoyed it, anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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?

Oooh, I’m kind of new to the blogging scene, so I’m not sure! But…

All of my blogging friends encourage me to try new books! I would probably only read like 3 books a year without you guys.

Now, I’m probably going to read 50 books. So thank you, haha! 

A book that is out of your comfort zone, but you would like to read. 

I have been wanting to read both Vicious and A Darker Shade of Magic for ages, but… I don’t think I’ve ever read an “Adult” book! YA is just so *comfortable* for me!

*hides under the covers*

But I will read them someday soon! I promise!

A book or genre so outside of your comfort zone that you’ll probably never give it a chance. 

Well… I’m pretty sure I’ll never read A Court of Thorns and Roses. 


From what I’ve heard, I probably won’t like it! That kind of book is just not my thing. 


I tag you!

As always, there’s no pressure to do the tag! (It’s just fun to do!)

  1. Yessss Illuminae is amazing! And I’m with you on the ACOTAR series — it’s never really interested me, even though I like some of Sarah J. Maas’s other books. Maybe I’ll pick it up at some point in the future, but probably not. Anyways, thank you for the tag! This is such a fun post idea! 🙂

  2. I know exactly how you feel about not wanting to read outside of YA. I feel the exact same way, which is why I usually have to force myself to read Adult books! And even then, they are very mainstream. Also, I’m glad you liked The Raven Boys!

      1. If you want to try an adult book, maybe you could start with Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine? It was my first adult book and now it’s one of my all-time favorites!

  3. I just finished Vicious and it’s mostly VERY Good and didn’t really feel like Adult to me?? like at all? but ADSOM definitely didn’t feel like YA! I hope you enjoy both books when you read them!! And yesss I love The Raven Boys!! The characters are all so PRECIOUS ❤

  4. Haha Xandra I learn of all the fun book tags from you! 😀 I’ll have to join in and maybe encourage myself to wander away from Fantasy.

    And Illuminae was so good and what am I doing here not reading Gemina yet?

  5. Love all your answers!! And I can relate to the 5th Wave dilemma! When I read that book years ago, I kept blending together the two POVs in the beginning as well. lol! I don’t think I’ll ever read ACOTAR either, but I would highly recommend A Darker Shade of Magic! The pacing feels like YA, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy it! ❤️
