Top Ten Most Unique books I've Read
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)
This was a toughy of a list. I almost stopped at five, but I powered through and realized that some of my favorites books are a bit different, unique. What's on your list of unique titles?
1) The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo
I love books where the narrator talks directly to the reader. This is one of my favorites.
2) The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde
Fforde takes classic literature and turns it on its head. Awesome.
3) Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
War from a fighting female's perspective. Not often done.
4) For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
An Austin tale set in a dystopian future. Quite clever.
5) The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
A book where a setting is as important as the characters.
6) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
Told from the unique perspective of young man on the spectrum.
7) Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn
A tale that shows how difficult it would be to read without all 26 letters of the alphabet.
8) The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
Death as a narrator. Chapter foreshadowing. A heartfelt and breathtakingly good read.
9) Room by Emma Donoghue
Absolutely disturbing tale from a five year old's perspective.
10) Lemonade Mouth by Mark Peter Hughes
Written like a documentary, and another example of how books excel to movies.
