Top Ten Tuesday: The Most Unique Books I’ve Read

This list was fun to create, because I was reminded of some of the unique books I’ve read in various genres. From YA fantasy to contemporary, from standalones to series. I even added one non-YA book, because of it’s originality. They are all unique in their own ways. I hope you enjoy this fun list, and that I might be able to introduce you to some great reads!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the fabulous The Broke and Bookish. It’s my favorite weekly meme, because the topics are always super fun, and it’s also a fantastic way to connect with other book bloggers. Join us!

      Awe. What didn’t you like about the movie? I thought they did a pretty good adaptation.

        I can see that. I read it when it first came out. Is the audiobook pretty good then?

  7. The Host is a good one! I loved the concept of this book. I had thought there was going to be a sequel but I don’t think it will happen unfortunately.

      I thought it was a standalone although a sequel would be awesome! I’m not sure Stephanie Meyer is doing much writing since she hasn’t had much out since then.

      1. Did you read The Chemist? I think it came out in October. I thought it was pretty good. No vampires or aliens 😊

      2. SarahYAandWine says:

        Oh ya. I have it but haven’t read it. I haven’t heard great things which is delaying my reading it. I do plan to get to it eventually though.

  12. I’ve sadly only read 2 of the books on your list. D: I need to read more unique books out there apparently. 😄 I super agree about The Night Circus. It was just so different. I can’t wait to read The Diabolic as well, since you found it to be so unique as well. 😀 Wonderful post, Sarah, and I now have a few books to check out. 😄
