Bird by Crystal Chan was a unique read for me because there was just something incredibly beautiful about the writing. The writing immediately pulled me in and didn’t let go until I had finished reading.

I hadn’t really heard much about The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker until my sister bought it for me when she was on holiday.  This is another book with beautiful writing. Once you get used to the writing style, you’re completely drawn in.

6063110

This is such a unique read. The hardback cover I read has beautiful silver page ages. I’m a sucker for a beautiful book, both in appearance and inside. I loved the story.

6671933

Ah, I loved The Boy With The Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu. It’s a quick, fairy-tale esque read.

12749843

I thoroughly enjoyed The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. Another fairy-tale book, with stunning writing. It’s intriguing and easy to read.

12665819

I was surprised that I enjoyed Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn so much.  I haven’t seen much middle ground surrounding this book. I think you either love it or hate it. I loved that this book confused me. It wasn’t straight forward. I hate being confused by a book, yet still utterly love it. That’s why this was a unique read for me.

6826861

This is such a weird book. Really weird. It’s actually really gross in sections. Dan Rhodes is certainly a unique writer.

7048800

I thought The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender  was a really well written book. The reason why I’ve listed it as unique is because of the wonderful title and it’s slight quirkiness/oddness!

15958671

The Girl On Paper by Guillame Musso is a fantastic book. Please don’t be put off by this cover! This book was strange to start with but it became such a wonderful story. One that I could definitely pull some amazing quotes out of about reading.

8591107

It had to be done. The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin is one of the most unique series I’ve read. It completely messed with my mind. I NEED to know what happened. I NEED the last book in the series. I think it’s my most anticipated end book of the series so far!

Top Ten Books Featuring Travel In Some Way

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s Top Ten List is 10 books that feature travel in some way. This is really going to be quite difficult for me to think of some but I’m sure looking around at other blogs will give me some inspiration to read more books that involve travel!

So here we go, in no particular order…

Saving June

 

Saving June by Hannah Harrington- I read this book after reading Speechless. I really enjoyed the road trip Harper went on to California. It also included a lot of music, which I absolute love in a book!

 

7606431

One Moment, One Morning by Sarah Rayner- Okay, this one is very loosely based on travel, but it’s a heart-breaking story of an incident on a train that changes the lives of some individuals. It really made me feel so sad, but it was a great story!

can_you_keep_a_secret_UK

Can You Keep A Secret? by Sophie Kinsella- Another one that briefly mentions travel. Emma spills her secrets to a stranger on a train that ends up being the company’s CEO.

86_Rachel%20Joyce-The%20Unlikely%20Pilgrimage%20Of%20Harold%20Fry

 

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce- This is such a sweet book. The travel in this book is by foot. It’s a heart-warming story.

11331421

 

The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Phillip Sendker- I love this book! It’s about a girl who travels to Burma to learn more about her father that disappeared without a trace.

100915

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S Lewis- I know this is a bit of a stretch, but it does involve travel to a different place. It’s such a magical story, it’s always been a favourite!

chasing daisy

Chasing Daisy by Paige Toon- This is a good chick-lit read. It’s got a bit more depth than your average chick-lit. Some parts were incredibly sad!

1032295

Lucy in the Sky by Paige Toon- Another book that includes travel from Paige Toon. This is an easy read and nice and light. Just what I need sometimes!

6622006

The Very Thought Of You by Rosie Alison – This book is loosely based on travel too. It is about a young girl who is evacuated from London to Yorkshire. It has some interesting psychological observations.

6282690

The Lost Daughter- Diane Chamberlain- I really like Diane Chamberlain’s writing and this book was the first I had read of hers. It was about a young girl who made mistakes and ended up running away from her problems, creating a new life for herself.

Please feel free to share your links so I can see what is on your list this week! Not that I need to add to my TBR pile… but I swear I do every week!
