Today I'm linking up with The Broke and Bookish to bring you the top ten most unique books I've ever read. So here they are in no particular order and hoping I didn't forget something obvious. :)

- The Book Thief by Martin Zusak... Any book that has death narrating it is unique... just saying.
- Life Expectancy by Dean Koontz... A very different kind of book that looks at life through different lenses. A fun read. :)
- The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.... No list is complete without including some Tolkien. :) In all honesty though, I don't think anyone could disagree that Tolkien's works inspired much of modern fantasy and remains unique in their creativity and majesty.
- Leave it to Psmith by P.G. Wodehouse... All of Wodehouse's books are unique but this one was even more so. :) Remains one of my favorite books to this day. :)
- The Screwtape Leters by C.S. Lewis... Unique to the extreme. I would really like to re-read this book actually because whenever I see excerpts from it I think "This is so good! I don't remember this!" I would highly recommend this book as an eyeopening novel that makes you look at your actions and your thoughts in a different light.
- The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde... I've mentioned this book a lot on my blog since reading it. I found it very thought provoking and definitely unique in the way it is written and what it discusses... especially for the time in which it was written.
- Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling... I'm not a crazy fan like some of those bloggers out there ;) but I do enjoy the Harry Potter books a lot and I consider them quite unique and incredibly imaginative.
- The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer... One of my favorite non-fiction novels. The way Tozer presents the theology in this I found to be unique, fresh and interesting.
- 1984, Animal Farm, Farenheight 451... I'm paring those three together. I read them all about the same time and they're sort of similar in their ideas. At the age when I read them with my limited experiences of the world I found them to be startlingly unique. Now that I'm older, more mature and know more about the world then I want to, I find that these ideas are sadly starting to come true.
- One Corpse Too Many by Ellis Peters... This is a fun mystery novel that I have always enjoyed for its unique setting in medieval times. I've always been a bit of a history lover as well as a mystery novel lover so when you combine thoughts you make me happy. :) It's so interesting to read a mystery novel where you don't have all of the modern conveniences that yyou normally think of. Government is very different, there's no fingerprinting and you can't get everywhere as quickly.
I actually thought this list would be hard to make but once I started looking at my Goodreads list of books I'd read the list just flowed and soon I had too many so I had to cut back!
