Top Ten Tuesday: The Most Unique Books We’ve Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This Top Ten Tuesday is talking about unique books that we have read. Talking about unique books is tricky. Obviously we may select some books that we find to be unique and you may be reading this and shaking your head because you think the opposite. So, before we dive into it we should probably talk about WHY these books are unique.

We selected these unique books for one or more of the following reasons: it’s fresh take on a historical topic done in a way we hardly ever see, the collaboration of the authors, it’s the first book of a particular genre we have read, it has a super unique writing style, the book is literally a bunch of documents that make up a crazy file that you get super invested it, or the book tackles a tough subject that just really hit you. These are just SOME of the unique books we have read, but the ones that came to mind first. So…here are 10 unique books that we at Midwestern Book Nerd have read.

Book Thief by Markus Zusak | My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows | Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein | The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins | The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank | Illuminae series by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff | Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi | In My Hands: Memories of a Holocaust Survivor by Irene Gut Opdyke | The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley | Wonder by R.J. Palacio

QUESTION: What are some unique books you have read (because we want to read them too!)? What of these books have you read?

    1. YES! This exactly! I for some reason can’t do Sci-fi. It makes zero sense to me because I love fantasy. But for some reason this format and everything else just clicked with me. I thought the concept was super cool and I became way more addicted than I had anticipated.
