This week's theme: Top Ten Most Unique Books I've Read (maybe the MC was really different, maybe it was the way it was written, a very unique spin on a genre or topic, etc.)
So, here we go:
1. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien: This book is well known and often mimicked and imitated through other writers. BUT, I don't think most of them come close to creating a whole new world quite like Tolkien. This isn't just a book he wrote; this is a world he created.
2. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro: This book is so unique in it's approach at a ethically challenged world and the lives of those who never had a chance at normalcy.
3. Animal Farm by George Orwell: Orwell never hid the fact that he was against totalitarianism. What he did do was sugar coat it with farm animals. It's like a kids book for adults. I love it!
5. Its Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini: I have never read any other book that takes place in the psych ward of a hospital, especially with such a relatable main character.
6. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher: The narrator through most of this novel is a tape-recording. Its very unique and interesting.
7. Bonk by Mary Roach: A non-fiction book about the science of sex....so unique!
8. A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan: This book jumps around in time and jumps from character to character. Also, there is a chapter written in PowerPoint. If that's not unique, then I don't know what is unique.
9. Jacob T. Marley by R. William Bennett: This is a book based on a side character in a classic. That's pretty dang unique!
10. Z: A novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler: This is a novel based on letters and other facts about a real person. It's very entertaining and interesting.
