Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke And The Bookish. This week's topic is books that were out of my comfort zones - that ones that were so wildly different from what I'm used to reading. This is most likely going to be a very, very short list since I don't really have that much of a comfort zone, but I'll list what I can remember.
In no particular order:
One Whole & Perfect Day by Judith Clark - This book is not like any other YA out there. It doesn't really focus on a young character. As a matter of fact, if I remember correctly, there's an array of characters of all ages, even a grandfather gets his own chapters in this book. It sort of breaks the mold of an average YA and I was a bit uncomfortable with it at first, but it ended up being a really great novel.
Teach Me by R.A. Nelson - This story about a student/teacher relationship was so dramatic and realistic and after coming off of my Twilight high (since this was the book I read right after) it was extremely out of my comfort zone.
A Child Called "It" by Dave Pelzer - How could this book be in anyone's comfort zones? I read this in high school and was horrified. Absolutely horrified. Spent one half of the book gasping in the outrage and the other sobbing like a baby. Though it's a very good book, I now stay far, far away from autobiographies.
Like I said - very short list today. Only those three books have ever made me uncomfortable. What about you? What books pushed you out of your comfort zone?
