If You Like (Blank), Then Read (Blank)

0001-82053168Books. We love ’em. The problem is, is that we love ’em so much that we don’t always know what to read next. Amazon recommendations are often slightly less than helpful, Goodreads recommendations rarely get updated, and recommendations from non-bookworm friends tend to be, “Oh, you should totally read (insert name of wildly popular book that you’ve already read. Twice.)!”

That is why I love Epic Read’s Like Try Why. This is kind of like my own little version of that, but with more than three recommendations.

Yep.

  1. I cannot handle the cover on that last one. Brrrgh.

    I got bored with Emmy & Oliver, but am willing to give it another try, because I just got a couple of chapters in.
