Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted on The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s theme is… The most unique books I’ve ever read!
This is a hard list of make, because there are a lot of factors that can affect the list. What if a book isn’t really unique, and I just haven’t read the others book that are like them? Or what if the books I read just aren’t that unique, and I just haven’t read the really good stuff? So maybe the books on this list are unique, and maybe they’re not, but I’ve only have what I’ve read to go by, so here goes nothing!
This book had the most fascinating take on death that I’ve seen in a book to date. I’ve read a few books that deal with similar subjects, but never one quite like this.
I’ve read a fair few futuristic stories, but this one is definitely interesting. The idea of having to train people to end lives because no one would die otherwise? Definitely something different.
Gaiman has such an incredible imagination, and this is definitely one of my favourites by him. It’s such a fantastical, imaginative story that stands out in the sea of fantasy stories.
This book definitely wins the prize for the most unique narrator.
This is such a beautiful, unique take on how grief manifests in kids. It’s one of those books that is beautiful to read as an adult, and would be a great way to help kids understand grief.
This series is unique because of the relationships between the characters. None of the relationships on their own are unique, but the combination of all of them make it interesting.
There have been more and more circus stories of late, but this is the one that seemed to pop up first. It’s such a unique setting that makes it stand out in a crowd.
I wasn’t particularly fond of this book – too violent and it goes a whole lot of nowhere – but I had to admit that it’s a wonderfully unique idea. The idea of life being a precursor to the afterlife, and the way that afterlife divides up is just brilliant. I wish it were a better book, honestly.
This is an oldie, but still a great, unique novel. The idea of the entire world being so controlled that people don’t even see colour anymore is amazing. And the ending is one of my favourites of all time.
