Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke And The Bookish. Lists galore, I can think of nothing better!

This week's theme is top ten most unique books you've read. I decided to split my list this week and do top five most unique books I've read as well as top five most unique sounding books on my TBR.

Top Five Most Unique Books I've Read:

1. A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall - Exactly as the title suggests, this book different to anything I have read before. It is a love story told from multiple different perspectives, including a squirrel and a bench but not the two main characters. I love it!

2. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon - This book I didn't love so much but I did love the format of the book. Almost every page is different and there are illustrations, it just added so much to the book. Unfortunately, I didn't love the story itself.

3. Where Rainbows End (Love, Rosie) by Cecelia Ahern - I love this book so much of course I had to mention it. This book is written entirely in letters, emails, texts, IM conversations, newspaper articles, and more things that I'm probably forgetting. It was such a unique way to tell Alex and Rosie's story.

4. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak - It's narrated by death. I don't think there's much more to say on the matter.

5. UnWind by Neal Shusterman - This is just such a unique idea. It's organ donation to the most extreme. The basic premise is that abortion is illegal but when a child is between the ages of 13-18 the parents can decide to have them unwound, meaning all of their organs are transplanted into others. It's unlike anything else I have read.

Top Five Most Unique Sounding Books On My TBR:

1. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma - From what I hear this is an incest love story. That definitely sounds like a unique storyline to me.

2. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy - The whole revenge bucket list plot isn't all that unique, but finding out your not actually dying after carrying it out definitely is. 

3. You by Caroline Kepnes - I believe this is written in second person from the perspective of a stalker, which is not something I have ever read before.

4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer - Fairytale retellings aren't all that unique but I haven't heard of any other fairytale retellings involving cyborgs.

5. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff - This is another book that is written in a really unique format. 

What unique books should I add to my TBR? I particularly love books written in a unique format.

  1. I've had my eye on Forbidden for years but, I don't know if I'll ever be ready for it. Illuminae is also a book I really want to get my hands on as soon as possible! Same goes for Everything, Everything which I didn't really plan on reading until I saw the trailer for the movie. Hope you're having a wonderful week!

    1. I kind of feel the same about Forbidden but I'm going to try and make myself read it this year. The movie trailer for Everything, Everything looks amazing, doesn't it?

  2. Great list! I just bought Everything Everything and I can't wait to read it!

    Here’s my TTT!
