I found this week really hard. Not because I haven’t read unique books, but because that maybe the books that I think are unique aren’t. In saying that, this list of books are unique to me. And it might not be the whole book that is unique, but something about it. Like always these are in no order.
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: I think that anything that Laini will write will be unique. There is something about both the way she writes and the worlds that she creates, that are unique. I just fall in love with everything that she does | Full Review.
The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig: Time travel through maps on private ships…yer pretty unique there. This was one of my favourite books that I read last year for many reasons. 1. How unique the concept was. 2. It was set in Hawaii | Full Review
And I Darken by Kiersten White: If if you didn’t know I love History. It’s one of my favourite things in the world. I could spend hours watching documentaries about Ancient Greece, the dynasties of Kings. I love it. So when I heard this was set in the Ottoman Empire and it was a gender switch for Vlad the Implaer. I knew I needed it | Full Review
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab: This is only a recent read of mine, but the world is absolutely fantastic. The love the ideas of magic, and different worlds and how everything comes together. I love the characters and just how unique everything is, but works so well.
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: Although setting a book during WWII isn’t unique, what the book centred around was. It covers the worst maritime disaster every and not many people know about. This book was heartbreaking, brought me to tears, but it was also beautiful and hopeful | Full Review.
Masquerade by Kylie Fornasier: This #LoveOZYA book is magical and heartbreaking. Set during the 1750s, it’s not something you see a lot in YA – neither are the things that happen.
Vigilante by Kady Cross: Although the main plot of this one isn’t unique – what happens because of it is. The protagonist here, driven by grief and rage decides to take things into her own hands. It’s rare that we get a vigilante in a YA contemporary | Full Review.
The Impossible Story of Olive in Love by Tonya Alexandra: Although I didn’t like this book. The concept behind the novel was interesting. Where a girl cannot be seen by anyone, but her true love. It’s so intriguing and what first pulled me towards the book | Full Review
