Top Eight Most Unique Books I've Ever Read
1. Cinder, by Marissa Meyer
Fairy tale retellings are all the rage now, but making Cinderella a cyborg queen? That's just the start of all the wildly creative and unique parts of this epic story about love, betrayal and
2. Wings, by Aprilynne Pike
There are tons of fae books out there, but not a ton where the fae are actually plants. Sort of. It took a book or two for me to get on board with that, but by the final book in the series, I was hooked.
3. White Hot Kiss, by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I may not have liked how the whole thing ended, but there's no denying that the concept of gargoyles who come to life in order to protect humanity from demons is pretty awesome. I loved White Hot Kiss before the love triangle fully came to light because of the incredible mythology created in this world.
4. Unholy Ghosts, by Stacia Kane
This is one of the darkest series I've ever read, but also one of the most compelling. The Downside Ghosts series is this combination of dystopian and paranormal where our heroine is a strung-out witch named Chess and the hero is an uneducated bouncer named Terrible who looks like Elvis. And despite their flaws, you will root for them every step of the way.
5. Shade, by Jeri Smith-Ready
The Shade series is not merely a ghost series. It's a series about young love and letting go. And being able to see and talk to ghosts. There's that too.
6. Fire and Flood, by Victoria Scott
It's like the Hunger Games meets Survivor when a group of teens is dropped off in the middle of a jungle with nothing but a weird egg and a faceless voice in their ears. But, what develops is an awesome story of friendship, love and survival. And those eggs turn out to be the best part of the whole thing.
7. Poison Study, by Maria V. Snyder
Poison Study started my love of all things Maria V. Snyder, because it's a really cool story about how a lowly criminal becomes a leader's food tester and then she ends up becoming a sort of leader in her own right as she taps into her hidden power and forms relationships with awesome people.
8. The Naturals, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I loved this book about a group of teens who are so brilliant and have such honed abilities that the FBI hires them to try and solve cold cases. I wish they would make a TV show around this book. I bet it would be a big hit.
