Top Ten Tuesday #4

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where, each week, a Top Ten list is posted based on a particular topic.

This week's: Top Ten Most Unique Books I've Read

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Mafi's writing style is so unique I loved being trapped in Juliette's head and reading her seemingly crazy thought processes

Between the Lives by Jessica Shirvington

Shirvington always manages to take a genre and put her own original twist to it. I've never read a sci-fi like Between the Lives - I didn't even realise it was a sci-fi until I was actually reading it properly. Very psychological.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Green's witty and sophisticated writing style that turned a serious issue into at times hilarious banter, made this heart-breaking story one that has changed me forever.

Angelfall by Susan Ee

Post-apocalyptic cross angels! And the angels are the bad guys? Yes yes yes! Such a good take on angels.

Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo

This is one of my favourite fantasy series of all time. Bardugo's Ravka is loosely-based on Russia and it's a wonderful world of magic and deceit.

Drowning Instinct by Isla J. Bick

Jesus Christ this book. The feels. How wrong is a student-teacher relationship? Wrong right? Or is it? This book made be question EVERYTHING. There is no white or black. All the issues explored in Drowning Instinct were grey space.

Easy by Tammara Webber

An amazing take on rape and the repercussions of not reporting abuse. Very well written and eeeeep Landon <3

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Oh the structure of this was stunning - Mia's trapped in a sort of limbo after a car accident and she needs to decide where she should stay or die. As her loved ones visit her hospital bed she tells us her story with each of them and we see the love and indecision she's faced with.

Something Like Normal by Trish Doller

Contemporary/NA books are very rarely written from the perspective of males. Doller takes it a step further and writes from a US soldier who's served in the Middle East and is suffering from PTSD while on his break back in the US.

The Collector by Victoria Scott

From the point of view of a bad boy who works for the big guy downstairs. I loved Dante's bad boy attitude and his hilarious banter.
