Top Ten Most Unique Books I've Read


Hidden Falls series by Olivia Newport: This is my first experience reading a serial novel. I'm not sure that I love the format, but it's a unique way of telling a story.

The Beloved Daughter by Alana Terry: Set in North Korea, this book is definitely unlike any others I've read.

The Face of the Earth by Deborah Raney: With the premise of a missing wife and labeled as a romance novel, this one is definitely different. I was skeptical, but it turned out to be a really good book.


The Doppleganger Chronicles by G.P. Taylor: This series was my introduction to "illustro-novels" and I thought these were delightful stories!

Misery Loves Company by Rene Gutteridge: Gutteridge's novel is set around a book blogger being stalked by a disgruntled author. Awesome story ... even if it creeped this book blogger out at times!

Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay: I've never read a book told exclusively through letters (and primarily one-sided), but Reay did a great job with a new format.


The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund: Hedlund has written several novels based on the lives of real people. She pulls a lot from history and then adds her own touches.

City of Tranquil Light by Bo Caldwell: Perhaps THE most unique book ever. I'm not even sure how to describe it, but it's one of my favorites. And one that several non-reader friends have also thoroughly loved.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett: It takes talent to tell a story (completely) from three distinct perspectives, but Stockett pulls it off in The Help.

Courting Trouble by Deeanne Gist: This "romance" novel is unlike any other romance I've read ... ever. Without spoiling it for those who haven't read it, I can't go into detail, but it's a great read.

  1. Great list :) The only one that I have read is The Help, but I loved that book. It is definitely a unique book, haven't read another book like it. My TTT.
