Top Ten Tuesday 21 - unique books

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's theme: Top Ten Most Unique Books I've Read


Ash by Malinda Lo - A really unique and sweet retelling of Cinderella.

Ultraviolet by R. J. Anderson - I don't want to say too much for fear of spoilers, but this book takes quite a few unexpected directions from where it starts out.

Vicious by V.E. Schwab -  So you think you know your superheroes from your supervillains? Think again...

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman -  Gaiman is a genius. That is all.

The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker - Gorgeously written historical fantasy, with mythology from not one but two different cultures!

Bruiser by Neal Shusterman - Another gorgeously written book. It's at times thoughtful, disturbing, hopeful, and above all beautiful.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness - This book seems like a children's book at first, but it is so much more than that. There is truth in stories...

Cinder by Marissa Meyer - Cyborg Cinderella. Doesn't get much more original than that!

Partials by Dan Wells - A YA dystopian novel that's actually very scientific! A very unique cast of characters as well.

Unwind by Neal Shusterman - The premise of this world is so sinister and very few books have managed to leave me as chilled as this one

    OOh nice! Lots of these are new to me! Know of Cinder and Dan Wells' book though!

    Here's my Tuesday post

    Have a GREAT

    Old Follower :)

  2. Every time I visit your blog I'm struck by how pretty is it! :)

    But back to the books... I love Neverwhere. Such a brilliant book. I haven't read most of the others on this list, but I've heard good things about a lot of them. Ash is meant to be a lesbian retelling of Cinderella right? I'm excited about that one, as well as The Golem & The Jinni.

    I knew it! I knew I'd see your list and absolutely love it and agree with it! (well with the one's I've read)

    Neverwhere is my favorite Gaiman books!! Love Cinder and OMG, A Monster Calls, totally will make any one cry! And I've been dying to read V.E. Schwab's Vicious for a while now! Uuuugggghhhh! Girl, I could go on and on LOL!

    Neverwhere is my favorite Gaiman novel! Yes, Ash is a lesbian retelling, which I didn't know when I started reading haha
    The Golem and the Jinni was one of the best books I read last year. I hope you like it!

    Neverwhere is my favorite Gaiman novel as well! I mean, I only put books I really liked on this list, so of course I'd recommend that you read all of these haha

    Great list :) The only one I have read is Partials, and it definitely was unique but I just didn't enjoy it very much. I have quite a few of the others on my TBR list - excited to get to A Monster Calls and Cinder. My TTT.

  9. I love Vicious! It blew me away and was like nothing I've ever read before. Great picks!

  10. Ooh Bruiser looks really good. I must look that up. I've got Unwind and A Monster Calls to read so I'm excited to get to them! :-)
