Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish. Want to participate? Head over to their blog and find out how it works!
1. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
The Book Thief quickly became one of my favorite books. What's so unique about it, is that it is told by a unexpected narrator: Death
2. 1984 by George Orwell
A literary classic and a must read. This one is unique because George Orwell was so ahead of his time and managed to capture it perfectly in a setting that has a frightening amount of similarities with our modern society.
3. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
This is simply because I've never read a book where the author actually managed to incorporate so many characters without making them pointless, whilst also making sure there are sustainable ties between each story line. It's almost impossible and I applaud George R.R. Martin for his incredible skills.
4. The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
Unique because of it's format is.. (surprise) a dictionary. Very fitting given the title and content, and very refreshing from the average book\format.
5. The Archived by Victoria Schwab
This book features and extremely unique and original setting, unlike anything I've read before.
6. The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith
So maybe the story is not that unique, but it contains a massive plot twist that I did not see coming. and I always see them coming in crime novels. So yes, unique in a way!
7. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
This is a satirical book in which the author is a characters of sorts in his own story. Furthermore, the author that is credited turns out to be fake. Fun!
8. The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz by Denis Avey
Unique because - as the title suggest - the story completely baffles you because you don't expect someone to voluntarily enter Auschwitz as a prisoner.
9. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
An extremely modern twist on the fairy tales we know and love. The author is very creative in her alterations of the originals, making the book such a joy to read.
10. War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
Once again a book with an unique narrator - horse Joey. Though it's aimed at children, it's a beautiful read for everyone that will educate you on the horrors of WWI
