Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.
April 11: Top Ten Of The Most Unique Books I’ve Read (topic originally done 4/14) Some variations: top ten unique sounding books on my TBR, top ten most unique books I’ve read in X genre, etc.
This week I’ve split the list up into unique books I’ve read and unique-sounding books I’m looking forward to reading. Some books are unique in the format, others in setting, and others in their content or storytelling. They are all memorable.
Unique books that I’ve read:
- Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. Every time Ursula dies, she gets to come back and live her life over again. How does making a different choice affect the outcome of your life?
- Landline by Rainbow Rowell. A magic phone connects 2013 Georgie McCool to her 1998 (not yet) husband Neal.
- 11/22/63 by Stephen King. Can JFK’s assassination be stopped? And will doing so make the future a better place?
- Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography by Neil Patrick Harris. Not your traditional autobiography.
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The circus forms a perfect setting for a magical dual between two illusionists.
- A Dream Worth Living: Finding Strength in the Depths of Struggle Along the Continental Divide by Andy Amick. Ok, full disclosure – my husband wrote this book. BUT how many people do you know who have ridden their bicycle along the Continental Divide from Canada to Mexico and lived to tell the tale? Also, don’t miss out on my giveaway for a chance to win a Kindle copy!
Haven’t read yet, but on my list.
- You are Here: An Owner’s Manual for Dangerous Minds by Jenny Lawson. A coloring book for depression. I like it.
- All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda. Told backwards from Day 15 to Day 1.
- Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey. An elderly woman with dementia is sure her friend Elizabeth is missing. The story also brings in the past and her sister’s disappearance.
- Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach. This was recommended by a friend, and definitely sounds unique enough for this list.
Have you read any of these unique picks? What unique book(s) should I add to my TBR? Sound off below, and link up to your own TTT if you’ve got one!
