New genres

Branching out on reading
Lately, I have been thinking I should branch out on the genres I read. I’ve already read a lot of: fantasy, historical fiction, crime, thriller, horror and action books. However, two of my favourite books of all time, “Boys Life” by Robert McCammon and “To kill a mockingbird” by Harper Lee do not fall into any of these categories.
I therefore find it mind boggling that I do not read more variety. This can only aid my writing as well as I experience new styles etc. So if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them. I already have “Water for elephants” and “the help” lined up. Check out my forthcoming review of Victoria Hislop’s “the Return” as well.
