Book tastes

I have a really eclectic taste in books. I love to read historical fiction (I love an old house mystery tying the present to the past), history (especially about women who were a head of their time). I like time travel, but not the technical type as I don't want to spend loads of time reading about a technology that doesn't exist. I enjoyed Outlander and am on the hunt for the perfect time travel adventure book. I also love dystopian future books. Recently I've been into listening to a lot of true crime podcasts and would be interested in reading about them as well.

Don't get this!

Outside of reading Fables I'm not into graphic novels. I don't like books with graphic sex scenes or sappy romances. I'm not into a lot of science fiction or anything that's really technical.

Other notes

I've included my Amazon wish list if it's needed. However, I would really love to be surprised by something that I've never heard or thought of before. I was given the first Outlander book the first time I took part in Santa Thing and I don't know that I would have ever read it otherwise. I'm so addicted to that series now that I'm rationing when I read the books so it won't all be over!
