Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list top bookish things.
Note that Giselle and Jenni often decide to split it and each do a Top 5.
Originality is not dead yet!
Now I didn’t go through ALL of the books I read, so these are just the first ones that came to mind for this week’s Top 10 Tuesday. And yep, it’s just me this week! J-dog isn’t feeling her best.
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: The world inside this novel is insanely creative, but the characters, the twists, the story, are all so unique. I would love to get a glimpse inside this woman’s mind!
- All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry: Even though I didn’t love this book as much as many others, it still stands out with its unique storytelling style. I can say I have never read a book narrated quite like this before!
- Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick: I read this one 2 years ago, and I still remember it very clearly – so that’s saying something if you know me! >.< This book is so very different. It’s one of those that leaves you thinking about it for days and weeks afterwards, to make sense of what you read and your feelings toward it.
- Ready Player One by Ernest Cline: This is one where the world itself really stands out from any other futuristic worlds/dystopians I’ve read. It’s all created using a gaming system that you can literally escape to and live your whole life in. I can’t even give it justice with just a few sentences it’s one you have to see for yourself!
- Don’t You Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn: I love mind-f*ck books and this one gave me one hell of a ride! I do think it will be a book that needs a certain kind of reader to appreciate its level of weirdness, but I loved every minute of it!
- Cress by Marissa Meyer: No explanation is really needed for this one – I mean you have all read it, right? >.< Hello: cyborg Cinderella!
- Antigoddess by Kendare Blake: Kendare is easily one of my fav authors and she takes on such a unique premise involving Greek gods with this one!
- Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge: This is another one I didn’t absolutely love but I still appreciated the unique world that it was set in – it was kind of mind-blowing at times!
- Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn: Yep, her two books made this list, and while they’re both very different from each other, they’re just as incredibly unique and awesomely weird!
- Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling: Even though there have been countless copy-cats… nice try, but there is no matching Harry Potter’s level of originality and overall epicness!
