From Snarky Comeback Guidebooks to Unlawful Mythical Creatures

 - Nov 23, 2011
A good read doesn't necessarily involve complex plots and characters; sometimes, all that's needed is whimsy, as demonstrated by these quirky, unconventional books.

While drama, science fiction and existential books are fine, there are some who prefer something that's less serious and more humorous. So instead of searching for an original storyline, authors have looked to pop culture and everyday life for inspiration. The result is usually an interesting book that pokes fun at society and parodies the media in a way that many can relate to.

Whether it's a guide teaching someone that it's OK to drink in every social occasion, or a children's book transformed into something morbid, these quirky, unconventional books are definitely not your average novels.
