Top Ten Unique Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is all about unique reads. It took me some time to think about them, but here they are!

Illuminae- Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

The format of this book is what makes it so unique. I adored it!

George- Alex Gino


I find this book unique because its child-like narration is so authentic.

The Last Beginning- Lauren James

The Last Beginning (The Next Together, #2)

A sci-fi ish book with different formats. I’ve recently finished this book and I absolutely adored it!

One- Sarah Crossan


A hard-hitting book told in verse.

Cloud Busting- Malorie Blackman

Cloud Busting

This book deals with bullying through poetry ❤

The Girl With Glass Feet- Ali Shaw

The Girl With Glass Feet

A beautiful book with a fairy tale-esque story. My edition had silver page edges ❤

The Boy With The Cuckoo-Shaped Heart- Mathias Malzieu

The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

Another fairy tale-esque story. So unusual, but so good!

Another Little Piece- Kate Karyus Quinn

Another Little Piece

Such an odd story. Yet, so compelling! I have a feeling that this book is either love or hate it though…

The Girl On Paper- Guillaume Musso

The Girl on Paper

This is definitely one of the most unique stories that I’ve read. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Bird- Crystal Chan


I’ve included this one because of its beautiful writing. It really stood out for me in the middle grade genre!

I have listed some of these books before on my list, but I’ve added 5 new unique reads since I last made this list in 2014! 

What did you put on your list this week? Feel free to leave a link to your post and I’ll stop by!

  1. Illuminae- definitely! I just finished the sequel too and it was great. 🙂 The Last Beginning looks really good too…

  2. Oow I was going to read One soon and didn’t know it was written in verse! I may have to read this next just to find out. The story alone sounds unique enough.

    Great List
    Happy Reading

  3. I didn’t even think of putting George on the list, but that is definitely one of the best unique books I’ve read. I’m seeing Illuminae on so many lists. I really need to read that one!

  4. I haven’t heard of any of these books. It’s so cool to stumble across a TTT post like this. They all sound good. I’m especially looking forward to checking out The Boy With The Cuckoo-Shaped Heart, although George has piqued my interest as well.

    Here is my TTT

  5. Totally agree with Illuminae and One! And I realllly need to start the Lauren James series! I have the first book and it sounds SO good- I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet! I also have Bird, and Another Little Piece, both of which I need to read. Great choices!

  6. Oh wow, The Last Beginning (and it’s previous book) sound super intriguing!! I’d never heard of it! And I would love a book with silver edged pages, that sells it right there…

Comments make me smile and I love to reply to them! Thanks for visiting today!
