Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is Top Ten Of The Most Unique Books I’ve Read. I thought I would spin this topic slightly and focus on some of the unique reads on my TBR. When I say unique, I mean out of my usual favorite genres. Hoping to expand my horizons a bit with these reads.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey // I am currently about halfway through this book and find it fascinating. I don’t usually read self help type books but I am glad to be reading this one!
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri // This is a Pulitzer Prize winner that I hear good things about. It intrigues me but also intimidates me.
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini // I honestly can’t decide if I want to read this book. I hear that its amazing but that it is also intense and violent. We will see if I find the right time to try it.
Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly // I don’t read a lot of nonfiction so this is outside my comfort zone a bit. But the story sounds really interesting to me.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss // I saw this novel on a list of best fantasy novels of all time recently. And it intrigues me. I read a lot of mainstream, popular fantasy and this seems a bit outside of that.
Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis // I’ve only barely started this book so I consider it mostly still on my TBR. One of my life reading goals is to read more Lewis. And this seems like a good place to start after Narnia.
1776 by David McCullough // I like American history but I have never read anything quite as dynamic and interwoven as this novel/history. Again, I find myself intrigued by it.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J. K. Rowling // I include this one in my list because it is a screenplay for a movie. And I haven’t read any of those 🙂
