Challenge: Reading outside your comfort zone

This year I decided to try some books I would never usually read and reviewed them on here. I always avoided romantic/chic-lit/ woman’s fiction so I read a book by Jenny Colgan called Little Beach Street Bakery.
I usually don’t enjoyed crime novels, they are over too quick or very much the same as the one before so I read Blackhouse by Peter May and Did you see Melody by Sophie Hannah.
First here are the reviews

In hindsight I would recommend everyone read outside their comfort zone I discovered how much I enjoyed books I wouldn’t normally read and found characters like Polly in Little Beach Street who I would read about for years.
