Books. 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.
IF YOU LIKE THE RAVEN BOYS BY MAGGIE STIEFVATER, THEN READ THE ACCIDENT SEASON BY MOIRA-FOWELY DOYLE
Haunting story lines, addicting writing style, achingly real characters and just a hint of magic.
IF YOU LIKE THE COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN BY HOLLY BLACK, THEN READ THE IMMORTAL RULES BY JULIE KAGAWA
Snarky vampires that are actually bloody and badass female heroines.
IF YOU LIKE DOROTHY MUST DIE BY DANIELLE PAIGE THEN READ SPLINTERED BY A. G. HOWARD
Children’s stories that have been twisted around and turned on their head. Female main characters who have no idea what they got themselves into but aren’t turning back now.
IF YOU LIKE A CLOCKWORK ANGEL BY CASSANDRA CLARE, THEN READ ILLUSIONARIUM BY HEATHER DIXON
WHY: Steampunk-y goodness, arrogant fighters and eerie monsters.
IF YOU LIKE ELEANOR & PARK BY RAINBOW ROWELL THEN READ EMMY & OLIVER BY ROBIN BENWAY
Adorable love stories with a little bit of a hitch.
IF YOU LIKE HEIST SOCIETY BY ALLY CARTER THEN READ HOW TO LEAD A LIFE OF CRIME BY KIRSTEN MILLER
Fun illegal stuff.
IF YOU LIKE DAUGHTER OF SMOKE & BONE BY LAINI TAYLOR THEN READ THE WEIGHT OF FEATHERS BY ANNA-MARIE MCLEMORE
Achingly beautiful writing that will draw you in and not let you put it down.
IF YOU LIKE ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD BY KENDARE BLAKE READ SHUTTER BY COURTNEY ALAMENDA
Ghost hunters and the ghosties themselves.
So! How do you find new books to read? Do you like Epic Read’s Like Try Why?
