Top Ten Tuesday (37): Most Unique Books I've Read

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Most Unique Books I've Read
(in no particular order)

Unique world-building
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1) by J.K. Rowling: I love the world of the Harry Potter series and I find it unique.
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer : Cinder has an unique dystopic/sci-fi world.
Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #1) by Laini Taylor : One of my favorites worlds in YA books.
Cruel Beauty (Cruel Beauty Universe) by Rosamund Hodge: What I love most of this book was the world building.
White Cat (Curse Workers #1) by Holly Black : I found particularly dark and unique the world of the curse workers.
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater : What I found unique about this books was the races with water horses (I thought that the races were with normal horses).

Unique main characters
The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns #1) by Rae Carson : Elisa the MC is unique (to me) because she isn´t the typical beauty, slim and the one that all the man wants, she´s overweight, and really insecure, but she changes during the course of this book.
Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) by Richelle Mead : Rose was the first (that Ive read in YA) female MC that can kick butt and don´t need a male MC to save her.
The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) by Julie Kagawa : Allison is my favorite female MC in YA, because she´s a strong vampire that doens´t want to lose her humanity and is in constant struggle....and also can kick butt.

  3. I'm reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone at the moment! I've seen it on so many posts lately and it's had such high praise I knew I had to read it. I'm only a couple of chapters in but I'm enjoying it so far.

    Thanks for stopping by Under The Mountain

  6. Oh I absolutely agree! The Scorpio Races blew my brain. I wanted to put it on my list too, but, gah...what's with only 10 books?! ;) Juuust kidding. I loved the world of Cinder, too! VERY original.

  7. So many of these *(almost* made my list, and even though they didn't, they're still favorites of mine. All of them, lol. Great list!

  8. Nice list! I've been reading white cat but I can't get through it

  9. All great books! Although I do admit half of them are still sitting on my TBR. Gotta read them soon <3

  10. I have to wholeheartedly agree with Daughter of Smoke & Bone and with The Immortal Rules! DoSaM has such an amazing and unique world and TIR is a fantastic first book on a series that makes vampires sound fresh again!

  11. I loved cruel beauty waaaayyy more than I thought I would. It was very unique. A girl of fire and thorns was fabulous as well.

  12. Agh I can't wait to read Cinder! So badly!!!


  13. As far as the books go Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Harry are the only two that I have read, and I agree wholeheartedly! And I 100% agree about good old Rose! She is still one of my all time favorite girls in YA or Adult Fiction!

  14. I agree that Harry Potter is very unique. Although many authors since have tried to copy. Vampire Academy was fun and Rose is amazing! Recently started the Immortal Rules series so I have yet to make up my mind there.
