Breaking out of my mould (a beginning anyway)...

I read ALOT of Novels... and the majority of them are romances of some sort... I like them to take me back in time to an era of elegant dresses, chaperones and Dukes found in back street 'gaming hells'. Maybe I'm an 'incurable romance' or living in an age when there are so many rules to break just seems like a little piece of heaven to the 'rebel' in me. 

I have always loved reading and have spent many hours with my head in a book when I should have been doing something else - much to the annoyance of my parents. I have a total inability to hear anyone while I am reading and I have now developed an incapability to put the book down until I have read it from cover to cover. I will soon become annoyance to my husband. 

However, at risk of becoming said annoyance, I am not about to stop reading (sorry Tom). I love it, even if I occasionally come out of a book wishing my life was a novel rather than the reality it is. Ok, I don't get kidnapped by a masked man and carried off in a carriage but I do have my own escapades. 

Moving away, getting married and changing jobs all in one month was definitely an escapade. 

In many respects I seem to tend to stick within a default position of reading the same genre and not exploring the bestsellers that are being published. Too many have passed me and my bubble by. 

In 2015, I would like to break out of my mould in a few areas and reading matter seems the right place to is the beginnings of a list of books I want to read in 2015 outside of my default position: 

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Taming Poison Dragons by Tim Murgatroyd 
Birdsong by Sebastien Faulks
Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
The Girl You left Behind by Jojo Moyes
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Not That Kinda Girl by Lena Dunham

What have you been reading lately? Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
