Hosted by the team over at The Broke and the Bookish, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme for list-loving bloggers. Every Tuesday, participants compile a list of their favorite books, authors, or other literature-related things that fall under a certain category.
I adore today's topic because I love books featuring individual styles and concepts. Bring on the weirdness, the unreliable narrators, and the unconventional storytelling styles because they do not turn me off at all. While I cannot promise that all of these books are literally unique, the absolute only one of their kind, I can almost guarantee you will remember them long after finishing.
I love this book's concept. A satirical story about a society in which teenagers must become surrogate parents because all adults are infertile is practically an idea made for me.
These two collaborators amazed me with their ability to tell a story in artful photographs.
This epistolary novel is unconventional in so many ways. The protagonist, who tells a story entirely in letters to a death row convict, is a murderer herself, but neither character's story is exactly what it seems.
4. Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn
Quinn's debut is twisted, gruesome, and mysterious. Not everyone will appreciate it, but I did.
Obviously I'm including Shatter Me on this list. Obviously.
I love Hale's satirically over-exaggerated writing style and crazy main character.
This story focuses on a lesser-known part of World War II-era history, making it stand out from other books about the same time period.
8. All the Truth That's in Me by Julie Berry
With a gorgeous second-person narrative and a conflict I had never seen before reading this book, All the Truth That's in Me earns its title of unique novel.
9. Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith
This novel's protagonist is strange and slightly unstable, and her voice captivated me.
10. I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
A school for spies? Yes, please.
What are some other "unique" books I should read?
