TGIF at GReads - Trying New Genres
If you would like to participate go over to Ginger's blog - GReads
Which particular book(s) opened you up to a new genre?
I didn't have to think about my answer, immediately I thought of Glass Castle, a memoir by Jeannette Walls. I read this in 2009 just before blogging and was amazed with the story. I never had interest in reading memoirs but it intrigued me and I gave it a try. I have read approximately 6 since then and for the most part have enjoyed this genre.
What I wrote in my comments on LibraryThing before I did reviews:
A remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. The Glass Castle is truly astonishing - a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.
Verse Novels - they have became my Simple pleasure
