Top Ten Tuesday: Unique Book Titles

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week’s topic is all about the most unique books you’ve encountered. Instead of picking my most unique books, I’ve decided to focus on the most unique sounding book titles that I’ve read or are currently on my to be read list.

1. The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner: When I first heard of this book I didn’t know what to think of it. I had no idea if we were talking about literal serpents or if it was a metaphor of some sorts. I’ve still not read this book but I will do soon.

2. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin: I love wolves. They’re so majestic and elegant but incredibly fierce as well. I was curious to see how the title played into the story and I can tell you now, it’s a heart breaker.

3. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi: I wanted to know who the Star-Touched Queen was and why she was chosen in a sense. Admittedly the stunning book cover played its part in my buying of the book as well.

4. The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore: How much does a feather actually weight? I honestly have no idea but the title sounded magical and whimsical so I had to pick it up.

5. Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson: Beside the hype surrounding the series, I really wanted to know what it meant to be Mistborn. As I found out it’s actually one of the coolest magic system in fantasy and I love how it derives from metal manipulation. It’s a gem of a series.

6. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor: By now everyone know that a book by Laini Taylor is bound to be beautifully written and hauntingly magical. I’ve yet to read Strange the Dreamer yet but I’m curious to find out what it’s all about.

7. A Madness so Discreet by Mindy McGinnis: Everything about this book sound spooky and mysterious. I’ve still not read this book but I really want to see the kind of madness explored in the book.

8. Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson: I honestly have no idea what this book is actually about but it sounds like a fun ride and I’ve heard a lot of praise for this series.

9. The Diviners by Libba Bray: What is a Diviner? Seriously I want to know. I actually forgot this book was on my tbr list but this week’s topic was a perfect reminder.

10. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler: I am all for chasing some mermaids. Now I know this is a contemporary book so I doubt we’ll see actual mermaids but it still sounds like a fun book for the summer.

Those are my 10 most unique sounding books.
What’s your most unique book?

  1. Such an amazing list! I really want to read Strange the Dreamer but, I’ve been hearing mixed things about it. It does sound very unique though! I also can’t wait to get my hands on The Weight of Feathers. It definitely does sound magical and I’m very intrigued!

    1. The Weight of Feathers is such an underrated book. It’s so magical and the characters are wonderful. I’ve been trying to avoid reading any reviews of Strange the Dreamer before I read it.

    1. different and creepy sounds like a good combination to me haha. Wolf by Wolf is absolutely incredible. The characters are so wonderful and have oodles of depth to them.


    1. Aaah I’m so excited to read Strange the Dreamer. I agree with TSTQ, the writing was beautiful but I didn’t really get a full feel of the characters.


  2. Awesome list!! I love Serpent King and really hope you enjoy it when you check it out 🙂 And Mistborn is amazing- I’ve only read the first one so far, but I loved it! Agree that the magic system is so unique! And I really want to read Star Crossed Queen, Strange the Dreamer and Wolf by Wolf 🙂

    1. I’m told I’ll need to stock up on the tissues for The Serpent King. I hope you enjoy the rest of the Mistborn trilogy, it gets better with each book and the character arc are phenomenal.
