1. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. This books regained my faith in YA urban fantasy. I loved the storyline, the beautiful way it was written, and the characters.
2. Storm by Brigid Kemmerer. The idea of the elements — fire, water, air, earth, spirit — isn’t exactly new, but the way that Kemmerer crafts the story is so fresh and fun, woven through with humour that will make you grin, makes it an overall fresh and unique YA reads.
3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Dystopian fairytale retelling? Hell yeah that’s unique.
4. Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy Christopher. A unique writing style, and a story that will stick with you for a long while after.
5. Soul Fire by Aprille Legacy. With a strong but believable main character, Soul Fire is a unique fantasy read that was a joy to read.
6. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. Based off Russian mythology and lore, Shadow and Bone is wonderfully unique and thrilling.
7. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. Bizarre, amazingly written, this was definitely a unique read.
8. Bird by Crystal Chan. Simultaneously heart-breaking and heart-warming, this is a uniquely wonderful read.
9. Divergent by Veronica Roth. A lot of people would call this a The Hunger Games knock-off; however, I disagree. I love the idea about the factions and one girl who doesn’t fit into any of them. It’s a great story. (The first book, anyway, I have issues with the second and third…)
10. All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill. Time travel, romance, and a villain you will sympathise with.
