Top Ten Most Unique Books I've Read
Unique due to topic (or a fresh spin on one):
1. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger- This one is unique because it's about being able to time travel, but having NO control of when it will happen or where you will go. Scary, sad, and totally unique.
2. Tease by Amanda Maciel- It seems like a lot of people aren't liking this book... but not me :) I love that this shows the view of the bully in a suicide incident. We always see stories from the victim POV. Here we get to see what it's like from the other side... and maybe that's what makes people uncomfortable about this book.
3. This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers- A truly unique Zombie book. This is about a girl facing apocalypse who DOESN'T want to live. WHAT??? She's depressed and suicidal and just waiting for the end to come. All other apocalypse books I've read are about people who desperately want to live.
4. Uses for Boys by Erica Lorraine Scheidt- This one is unique because of the bravery of this book. This book was not afraid to go places that most books won't.
5. One Moment by Kristina McBride- I categorize this one as unique because it does something most books don't. It villianizes the victim. I loved the idea of dealing with someone's flaws AFTER they tragically died. There's nothing that can be resolved and you aren't supposed to feel that way towards someone who is no longer here... but there it was.
6. The Murder of Bindy MacKenzie by Jaclyn Moriarty- This whole series was truly unique for me. Maybe it's because I'm American and the author is Aussie... but at first I was like "what the hell am I reading???" and then all of a sudden it all makes sense. I've never read anything like it.
Unique due to the WAY the story is told:
7. Crank by Ellen Hopkins- This was my first "verse" book.
8. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher- Told mainly through cassette tapes.
9. Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan- Told in an all-seeing, god-like voice of dead people.
Just All Around Unique:
10. Cinder by Marissa Meyer- I JUST finished this last night (I know, finally!!!). I have to say it's one of the most unique retellings I've ever read. It's a futuristic dystopian fairy tale retelling with freaking robots and plagues and aliens!!
