Top Ten Unique Books I’ve Read

Top Ten Tuesday sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday covers the most unique books I’ve ever read. Or, if we are choosing to be nit-picky with grammar, Top Ten Unique Books I have read, as “unique” cannot be modified by words like “most” and “very” since it already implies something that is singular, standing alone in it’s style or category.

I was supposed to cover “top ten books I’ve read in one sitting” in this post, but it rapidly downgraded into a list of “some books I happened to read in one sitting” since they range from excellent, life changing reads to mind-numbingly terrible books. The common factor appears to be that I was trapped in some sort of enclosed space at the time that I happened to be reading that book with little else to do. Without further ado, I present the Top Ten Books I Read in One Sitting, or Some Books I Happened to Read in One Sitting. Continue reading
