Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten Most Unique Books I've Read
1. The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell - it's not too often that you get to read about a priest in space :)
2. Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner - YA/historical fiction/sci-fi book with tiny illustrations, love it!
3. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett - a hilarious tale of the Armageddon.
4. Room by Emma Donoghue - disturbing account of an abduction narrated by the abductee/abductor's young son.
5. The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh - a modern story of a troubled young woman who uses the Victorian language of flowers to communicate with those around her.
6. To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Wills - part time-traveling sci-fi, part mystery, part romance, part Victorian comedy...fully amazing!
7. The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender - a tale of a girl who can taste emotions in her food!
8. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell - a nesting doll of interconnected stories that take place throughout the past and the future.
9. The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly - historical fiction/fantasy/fairytale book about a book!
10. Heads You Lose by Lisa Lutz and David Hayward - a co-authored murder mystery where the others alternate chapters and take jabs at each other in their writing. Quirky and hilarious!
