Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Anyone can join!
So the focus for this week’s topic revolves around the most unique reads we’ve read. I had to think long and hard about what I consider unique, but I think I’ve come up with something. I also managed to get 10 books, which I thought I wouldn’t be able to do, so that’s pretty impressive.
Belle Eqoque – I really enjoyed this book. The idea was new (to me) and how it was carried out was memorable.
3:59 – First of all, the author’s first name is the same as mine, so that counts as being unique right there. Aside from that, I loved the parallel universe idea; apparently it has been done way more than I knew of.
My Life After Now – This was such an amazing read. While the idea of the book may be scary, it was an incredible read, as well as informative about AIDS.
Poison Princess – Tarot cards come to life? Awesome. Fantastic characters? Sign me up. Really attractive male character. Bonus.
The Archived by Victoria Schwab The Archived – Okay, so as a librarian, this book automatically drew me in. Libraries are places for the dead to rest on shelves…so…awesome.
Monstrous Beauty – Mermaids are fascinating, but they really aren’t written about all that often. This was such a wonderful read and if you haven’t read it or heard of it GO READ IT NOWWWW! I mean it.
The Last Years series – This entire series was amazing. I can’t even explain it well enough to do it justice but it’s fantastic.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time – I didn’t read this book…I listened to it and the audio for it was fantastic. Such a strange, but amazing book.
Monster – The book is written as a screenplay…while it was a bit distracting at times, it was definitely unique.
Fruits Basket series – Changing it up a bit and including a manga in the mix. I used to be obsessed with manga…this one was by far my favorite and the most unique…of course, manga in general is pretty unique.
What do y’all think of my list? Anything I should read to add to this unique list?
