Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme: ten of the most unique books I've read!
ILLUMINAE by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: This one's mostly about the way the story is told. I absolutely love how so many different formats are used and how they all come together to form one story!
SIX OF CROWS by Leigh Bardugo: No matter how hard I try, I can't think of any books that compare to this. When you combine the setting and the multiple perspectives and the heist aspect, you get something totally unique.
WOLF BY WOLF by Ryan Graudin: Alternate histories aren't really anything new, but alternate histories plus powers plus motorcycle races? Definitely unique. And definitely amazing.
THE SCORPIO RACES by Maggie Stiefvater: The weird thing about this book is that it feels kind of familiar, like it should remind me of another book. But it doesn't. I've never read anything quite like it.
MORE HAPPY THAN NOT by Adam Silvera: This book might not have worked for me, but it was certainly unique, and I liked that part of it a lot.
THE IMPOSSIBLE KNIFE OF MEMORY by Laurie Halse Anderson: It's been a while since I've read this, but there are still a few scenes that stick in my memory so clearly just because I haven't read anything like it since.
THE PRINCESS BRIDE by William Goldman: Nothing can ever be like The Princess Bride, because nothing can ever hope to measure up to it. (Except for the movie, but that's another story.)
I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN by Jandy Nelson: I don't gush about this book nearly enough. I'm long overdue for a reread, but still. This book is amazing, and maybe it's just because it's not new, but I don't think it gets nearly the love it deserves. It's so beautifully written and perfectly put together.
PRISONER OF NIGHT AND FOG by Anne Blankman: This book was not at all what I was expecting going into it, because I thought I was getting something mostly predictable. Nope. This is something (almost) entirely to itself.
PIVOT POINT by Kasie West: We all love Kasie West's contemporaries, but this duology gets sadly overlooked. It takes the idea of having alternating perspectives in time and turns it on its head by having two alternating potential futures.
