Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten List and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
Every Day – David Levithan
The first and only book I have ever read in which the main character does not have a gender.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time – Mark Haddon
I have never before read a book in which the main character is autistic. Reading from a 15 year old autistic boys mind was incredible.
The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood
I have read my fair amount of dystopian books, but no world has ever been like the one that Margaret Atwood created for this book.
Nought’s & Crosses – Malorie Blackman
The whole concept of this book is unique as I have never heard of another book that has anything close to what Malorie Blackman gives us in this book.
Harry Potter – J.K.Rowling
I chose Harry Potter because it is unique to me int he way that no other story has effected me in the way this one did. I have never felt so involved in a book series before. It is simply phenomenal.
Slammed – Colleen Hoover
I have never read a book that featured Slam Poetry or really any poetry before, so this one really was a first for me and I really loved it.
Cloud Atlas – David Mitchell
This book is unique in it’s own right. There’s no way to explain exactly what makes this book special and unique without talking for about an hour, so you will just have to trust me!
The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini
I had never read any books set in Afghanistan before this one and haven’t since. Reading this books and learning about the country and its culture and history was really interesting.
As well as my Top Unique books that I have read, there are also a few that I haven’t read yet but know that they are really unique books too.
Life of Pi – Yann Martel
I have seen the film version of this book and thought it was incredible. After reading a sample and hearing so many incredible things about the book I know that it is going to be special. Plus it will be unique to me as I have never read a book which centres around a character trapped on a small boat with a lion before!
The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Cbhosky
This book is unique as it is written completely in letter format. I’ve read a few books which feature letters/emails, but never a book full of them.
The Lover’s Dictionary – David Levithan
This book is written just like a dictionary with a different love story for each letter. Beautifully unique.
Forbidden – Tabitha Suzuma
This book is based on a girl and boy who are in love with each other, but who are brother and sister. Never have I read anything even close to this.
What are the most unique books you’ve ever read?
