Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today is all about unique books!
What actually makes a book unique? Plot, characters, writing style, formatting, POV? A combination of all of the above? While it can be unique in one way, it can be pretty standard in other ways.
For me, all the books below are unique in one way or another. Some I’ve already read, some are still on my TBR. But they all strike me as unique in their own way. They have a unique plot, a unique writing style, a unique narrator, or they are unique in any other aspect. So let’s just get into it!
<< Unique books I’ve read >>
What’s unique about it? Japanese mythology! We’re all probably really familiar already with mythical creatures such as dragons, unicorns, mermaids and centaurs. But Japanese mythical creatures such as kami, yokai and kitsunes? Not so much!
What’s unique about it? Well, the fact that they’re fairytale retellings is probably not that unique… But the fun little sci-fi twists? Oh yes! A cyborg Cinderella? A hacking Rapunzel? Bring it on!
What’s unique about it? The narrator is Death. This brings in a pretty unique point-of-view and writing style.
What’s unique about it? Honestly, not the plot or worldbuilding so much. But the writing style is pretty unique! It’s super poetic and well.. unique. It’s hit or miss, but for me it was definitely a hit!
The Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor
What’s unique about it? The exquisite and wonderfully different worldbuilding, the intriguing characters and the gorgeous writing style all work together to create one of the most unique series I’ve ever read.
<< Unique books on my TBR >>
What’s unique about it? Honestly, I still hardly have any clue what this book is actually about. That, combined with the fact that it’s written by Laini Taylor and I’m pretty sure it’ll be another unique reading experience.
What’s unique about it? This book, based on Russian folklore, is frequently described as weird or bizarre. Sounds pretty unique, I guess!
What’s unique about it? The format is definitely the highlight here! The entire story is told through emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more.
What’s unique about it? This book promises to be super meta and make fun of a lot of popular YA tropes. And that’s what will undoubtedly make it super unique and that’s also why it’s my most anticipated release of 2017.
What’s unique about it? Told from the POV of a creepy stalker. Creepy AND pretty unique.
