Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Most Unique Books I've Read

This is more of a list of the Top Ten most Unique or Bizarre books I've read.  Sadly for me, the books that I would consider bizarre were not my favorites.  However, they were all unique.

 The blending of the creepy photographs with the story make this book one of a kind.

I am adding this book, not for the story itself, which is awesome, but not necessarily unique, but for the writing.  The way external dialogs are represented is just so unique. 

This is another book that stayed with me because of how unique it was.  It really made me imagine if there were such a being that was in charge of helping me sleep.  If this could be real, I would have to say that my Sandman is totally failing at their job.

This book also falls into the bizzare/unique.  After I finished my immediate reaction was "WTF".  I will say it stuck with me because it was so different from anything else I've ever read.  If there is anything out there even remotely like this book, I would be interested to know about it.


  1. OOh nice! Read Harry Potter but a lot of the rest are new to me!

    Here's my Tuesday post

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Poor Jane Yolen. Nobody remembers Wizard's Hall and everybody thinks that J. K. Rowling was the first person to write about a boy who goes to a wizard school...

    Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children made my list, too. It certainly was unique! And creepy. I've also got Leviathan sitting in my TBR pile. I haven't really read much in the way of steampunk, so anything in that genre would seem unique to me!

  3. Yep Miss Peregrine made my list too! Love the uniqueness and the old, vintage pictures! Great series so far too!!

  4. I've read Forbidden, and I agree - it was certainly one of a kind.

  5. I have been wanting to read a book by Laurie Halse Anderson for a very long time. The amount of respect she has from readers and authors alike is pretty amazing.

    Thanks for sharing! :) xxx

  6. Great list :) Forbidden made it onto mine as well, I actually ended up really loving that book. I thought it was so well written and the subject was handled very well, but it was very tough to read. My TTT.
