Out Of Your Comfort Zone Reading Challenge- Sign Up Post

I took part in my first ever reading challenge this year, and I had so much fun that I wanted to try another one.

The Out Of Your Comfort Zone reading challenge was started by Caro @ bookcheshirecat and I love the idea behind it of trying to read more books that are out of your comfort zone.

You can sign up to take part over on the blog which I’ve linked above and in the header image below, and there are loads of pretty graphics that you can use in your posts, too. (Aside from the pink one with the cat below, the blue ones after that are mine.)

Out of my comfort zone 2021

2021 #outofcomfortzonechallenge TBR

I’ve read contemporary novels in the past without realising that’s what they were considered, but it’s not a genre I’ve actively sought out. (mostly because I’m not entirely sure what contemporary means.)

My list of contemporary novels is pretty short, but it might grow if I can find more books to add to it.

  1. Girl, Woman, Other- Bernardine Evaristo

Science Fiction is another genre I don’t read a lot of, even by accident. But Stuart MacBride is one of my favourite authors and this book of his is considered sci-fi, so I’m going to give it a try.

  1. Halfhead- Stuart MacBride

It turns out I own quite a number of historical novels, so this list was by far the easiest.

  1. The Other Boleyn Girl- Philippa Gregory
  2. Washington Black- Esi Edugyan
  3. Parade’s End- Ford Maddox Fod
  4. Vanity Fair- William Makepeace Thackeray

Another teeny list…

  1. The Switch- Beth O’Leary

And another.

  1. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell- Susanna Clarke


What’s on your 2021 tbr list?

I read a lot of books and get emotionally invested in the lives of fictional characters.

      I’ve had the book on my tbr for ages so I’m really hoping I do get round to it this year. Maybe we could buddy read it?
