Listless Monday, Not Your Average Magical Creatures

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

I thought it would be fun to list books that contain magical creatures - but not just any magical creatures, as that list would be enormous.  No, I wanted to list those book that contain unique, unusual creatures.  Here you'll not find your average vampires or werewolves, but unicorns and selkies and other strange beasties.

I know there are tons more, so I am hoping you will have some to suggest!

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. Fantastic list! I haven't read a lot of these, but I love magical creatures (even better when they are different from the norm). I definitely need to read The Last Unicorn soon. It's been on my list for forever.

  2. Penelope, I read it so long ago I've forgotten it, but I remember liking it.


Love it when you comment!
