    • I do like to step outside my comfort zone from time to time (sometimes farther outside than others). This one was a little slow for me in the beginning but I’m glad I stuck with it… if it was just a random author I might not have.

  1. I have grown to love mysteries set in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (especially British, with historical elements). In general I think these kinds of cross-genre books are cool because they can teach something about history without being dull. (I can read a straight history book without getting bored, but I know lots of people who can’t.)

    • I think I like stories that incorporate history — James Rollins, Steve Berry, and the like — more than those that actually take place in it. But I am starting to read more historical fiction from time to time, so I’ll have to keep an eye out for more cross-genre examples.
