Genre Benders

We have made it half way though this week!
This week has been trying thus far, I spent my birthday (On Sunday) on the couch sick and coughing up both lungs, I could barely read…much less blog! This is my debut this week! This week’s top 5 Wednesday post is about books that defy genre or hard to place in a certain category.

#Notyourprincess by Lisa Charleyboy

Although this is an anthology, it is also a poetry book and a graphic novel. This book is just AMAZING!

Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan

I have never understood what Chick Literature is, so I don’t actually ever consider it a genre. This book is more like a romance/realistic fiction combined… I hope that isn’t what chick lit actually is.

Kindred by Octavia Butler

This is so not the point of this list, but allow me to say this book is not a dang science fiction novel!

Sold by Patricia McCormick

This was one of the most intense books I read in my teens. It s a mixture of poetry, drama, and realistic fiction.

What Does Consent Really Mean? by Pete Wallis

This is the best fictitious, non-fiction book I read. This is a graphic, informative novel. I would venture to even call it a “How To” guide!

What books have you read that break out of one genre? What do you consider chick lit?

Ciao Book THOTS!

  1. Cool list! I have no idea if chick lit is romance + realistic fiction, definitely realistic fiction but sometimes the focus is more family/career/finding yourself… so I guess anything written by women, for women? It’s a rather generic term, in my opinion… Crazy Rich Asians looks like a fun read, in any case!
