Top Ten Most Unique Books I’ve Read

Posted April 7, 2014 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 7 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.

This is a hard topic! There are so many reasons why I love books, and frequently it’s because the book is about something or is set somewhere that is very uncommon in the books I read. I’m going to break things down into unique settings and unique topics/premises. Hopefully I’ll be able to narrow things down to ten books that fall into these two categories because I am all about organization. Hehe.

Unique Settings
Girl at Sea by Maureen Johnson (set on a boat sailing the Mediterranean)
Open Road Summer by Emery Lord (set on tour buses as they drive around the country)
Captivate by Vanessa Garden (set in an underwater world that’s not about mermaids)
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (set in futuristic Russia)
Frost by Kate Avery Ellison (set in the coldest place in the world, ridden with monsters)

Unique Topics/Premises
From What I Remember by Stacy Kramer and Valerie Thomas (an accidental road trip to Mexico)
Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney (a love story between a modern-day guy and a girl in a painting)
On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves (a love story between two stranded survivors, one 18 and one 31)
Delirium by Lauren Oliver (love is a disease)
Unbreak My Heart by Melissa C. Walker (heartbreak over a lost friendship instead of a lost relationship)

So! Agree? Disagree? What are some of the most unique books you’ve read?

  1. Delirium and Shadow and Bone were both amazing reads. Delirium has to be one of my favourite YA novels – I simply adored it. :) Great list! I just added On the Island and Starry Nights on my TBR list.
