Top 5 Wednesdays: Genre Benders

Hello beautiful people!

The topic for this weeks Top 5 Wednesday post is genre benders: books that defy genre or are hard to place in a certain category.

Cool thing is that I’ve read a LOT of genre bending books, more than I originally thought. So let’s get to it!

FIVE. The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
