Happy November! A new month means a new round of Top Five Wednesday posts! Today’s post is all about book that defy genre or are hard to place in a certain category. I’ll primarily be talking about books that could fit into more than one genre below!
Geekerella by Ashley Poston– Geekerella can be considered to be a fairytale retelling, as sixteen-year old Starfield fan Elle is forced to live with her mean stepmother and stepsisters, or a contemporary read.
The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr– The One Memory of Flora Banks is promoted as and is definitely more-so a contemporary book, but as you read the book more and more, some psychological thriller vibes kick in.
The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock– The Smell of Other People’s Houses could be considered a historical fiction novel, since it takes place in 1970s Alaska, or a contemporary novel, as it follows the daily lives of four teenagers. Whatever it is, READ THIS BOOK, IT’S ONE OF MY FAVORITES OF 2017!
The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer– Fairytale retelling or sci-fi? I always classify The Lunar Chronicles as both, calling it a sci-fi fairytale retelling, as I feel that the books don’t fit into just one genre.
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins– There’s Someone Inside Your House definitely falls more into the horror genre, but its YA romance and family vibes could place it into the contemporary genre.
