Top Ten Tuesday – If You Like This, Try That


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s topic is essentially book recommendations/readalikes.

“If you like this super popular book, try that less popular book.” 


If you liked The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, try The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton. Magical realism with beautiful writing that will take your breath away.


If you liked The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, try Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott. A cruel game run by “the man” that must be won for the greater good.


If you liked Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, try Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. A heartbreaking yet important look at suicide.


If you liked The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey, try Wool by Hugh Howey. A world very different from our own and the people trying to learn how to navigate it.


If you liked If I Stay by Gayle Forman, try The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg. She’s passed on, but can she move on?


If you liked Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, try The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. Action-packed creepy ghost story.


If you liked Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi, try These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. Girl has to survive in in an unfamiliar situation with the help of a swoon-worthy guy.


If you liked Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella, try Boomerang by Noelle August (Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger). A light and fluffy feel-good story.


If you liked Ready Player One by Earnest Cline, try The Silence of Six by E. C. Myers. Hacker story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.


If you liked Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, try This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales. Love stories are great, but it’s really about the music.

Have you read any of these? If so, do you have any other readalikes? 

I’m always looking for more recommendations!
