Top Ten Tuesdsay- 11/04/2017

Hello everyone! I'm linking back up with The Broke and the Bookish this week to participate in another Top Ten Tuesday. I didn't participate last week, because I couldn't relate to the topic. This week's topic however is very interesting. So find below, "Top Ten of The Most Unique books I've Ever Read".

Note: I'm not listing these books in order of preference, simply numbering them as they come to mind. 

1. "I'll Give You the Sun" by Jandy Nelson. I read this book in the beginning of 2017. Noah and Jude Sweetwine are extremely artistic twins who suffer from loss in a non-linear novel. She writes as an artist, describing all items as colours and people as emotions. 


2. "Heartless" by Marissa Meyer. I finished this book very recently. Meyer tells the story of The Queen of Hearts, before she was The Queen of Hearts, using Caroll's writing style from the classic "Alice in Wonderland".

3. "Mosquitoland" by David Arnold. This unique book is about a young girl who's mother is suffering from cancer- and her journey towards her home. It's hard to describe curtly, but you can expect my review soon!

4. "Popular" by Maya van Wagenen. I read this teen memoir back in 2015, and this list reminded me of how much I loved it. Maya follows a 1950s teenage guide and attempts to make herself more popular in Middle School. 

5."The List" by Siobhan Vivian. This book is about an anonymous list that rates the girls in school every year. I absolutely loved it- and still remember it vividly, although I read it two years ago.

6. "Because You'll Never Meet Me" by Leah Thomas. I just finished reading the sequel to this book and I have to say that you should definitely read both!

7. "The Leaving" by Tara Altebrando. While I can't say this was one of my favourite books, I can say that I loved how different the plot was and how unique the characterization was!

8. "This Adventure Ends" by Emma Mill. This story revolves around a young girl, two twins and their pain and love. I read this book late last year, and would definitely recommend it to all of you!

9. "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library"by Chris Grabenstein.  This Middle-Grade Novel is extremely funny and interesting. Although it's a quick read, it's definitely not one you should miss!

10. "Eleanor and Park" by Rainbow Rowell. I liked this one better than most of Rowell's other books, mostly due to the characterization. 

I've just realized that in this list of unique books I've read in the past two years, I've only reviewed three! You can look out for reviews of these books coming soon. I will definitely be reviewing "Because You'll Never Meet Me", "Popular", "Mosquitoland" and "This Adventure Ends".

My review of "Heartless" comes out tomorrow- be sure to look out for that!

What books have you read from this list? Any suggestions?

  2. We've got a few books in common here! I'll give you the sun and Escape from Mr Lemoncello's Library is on my TBR list and The leaving just made it there. Great choices! I didn't do a TTT on the most unique books, but on the most unique characters. Have a look! http://marelithalkink.blogspot.co.za/2017/04/top-ten-most-unique-characters.html

  4. Nope...I haven't ready of these, but they sound like they certainly qualify.

  5. OOOOH! I did the most un-unique tropes for this TTT because it just seemed like more fun but I LOVE YOUR LIST! I adored I'll Give You The Sun and most of the others are on my TBR!

    Have a great weekend.

  6. I've heard really good things about Jandy Nelson and Rainbow Rowell, but never read books from either one. Their on my still-to-be-read book lists. :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.

    1. Jandy Nelson is a great writer- I've only read I'll Give you the Sun!
      Rowell on the other hand, has had two great novels (Fangirl and Eleanor and Park). I've found that the others weren't quite a hit.....

      Thanks for stopping by Poems and Poets!
