Eleven books with beautifully strange love stories

At Entertainment Weekly Sarah Weldon tagged eleven beautifully strange romance books to read if you loved the awards season frontrunning film The Shape of Water. One title on the list:
Issac Marion, Warm Bodies

Told from the perspective of R, a zombie in the middle of a "no-life" crisis, this love story between a human-eating zombie and a human girl causes a ripple in their world. The novel, which became a 2013 film starring Nicholas Hoult, is quirky, haunting, and deeply romantic in equal measure.
