These are books that are so weird and so puzzling, I can't help but wonder if my reading comprehension is not what it used to be. By no means am I saying that the books are terrible. Quite the contrary. It's just whenever I think of the books, I end up with more questions than answers. Below are a list of books that I think are worth the read, but (cue Keanu Reeves:) "Whoa!"
