Top Ten Most Unique Books I’ve Read

April 8, 2014

toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is a fun meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

Today we’re discussing unique books. This topic was both super easy but super hard for me all at the same time, because for me, a unique book can be quite a personal thing. Some of the books I’ve chosen probably don’t scream unique to everyone, but they are definitely unique to me in some way.

Top Ten Tuesday April 8thBlindness by Jose Saramago – For the book’s total lack of punctuation, as well as the plot line.

Pretty Girl 13 by Liz Coley – I’ve never, ever read a book quite like this one.

Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson – Simply for the layout of the book. It’s peppered with receipts, photos and playlists.

Rory by Ciye Cho – For the concept: human girls being stolen and sold to ghosts.

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting – The most unique dystopian set-up I’ve ever read.

Zombie Apocalypse by Stephen Jones – Again, the layout of this one. I loved how it flitted between text messages, blog posts and even a coroner’s report, which I thought was really cool.

The Traveller by Garrett Addison – Just pure, sheer, WTF-ery.

Room by Emma Donaghue – You’d expect a book tackling this kind of subject to be told from an adult’s point of view, but it’s not, and I love that.

The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick – I’m yet to read a book that deals with mental illness in a similar way to this one.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – I adored this book, but I’ve never found another book like it.

    Room very nearly made it to my list! I agree, the POV from the young child really made this book unique (and very good). I’ve added Pretty Girl 13 and Rory to my TBR – they sound so good!
