Top Ten Tuesday – Hey, check this action out

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.

We’ve all been there… finished the latest book by our favorite author and thought “Well what should I read next?!” because you’re still in the mood for that author. So instead of re-reading a book of theirs, here are some suggestions of books you should check out if you like a certain author.

If you like Meg Cabot try… Awkward by Marnie Bates – This is especially true if you’re a Princess Diaries fan. Awkward has that Meg Cabot vibe going, full of awkward teen moments and a dreamy boy to boot! It also has that “no way this could really happen, could it, surely not!” But you secretly hope it does…

If you like Kristin Cashore try… Grave Mercy by Robin LeFevers – If you’re looking for a book that delivers a fantastic, kick-butt heroine with tons of conflicted emotions, Grave Mercy is the book for you. Like the Graceling series, Grave Mercy has that bucking the system vibe going that is sure to be a great follow up series to the Graceling series.

If you like Myra McEntire, try… Texas Gothic or  The Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore – So the themes in these books are a little different, but the elements are the same. Both books by Clement-Moore take place in the South and have this great supernatural/magic/spooky element to them that remind me of McEntire’s books, minus the time-traveling though. They’ve also got some great humor in them, as well as steamy love-interests!

If you like Jessica Spotswood, try… Perigee Moon by Tara Fuller – These two books take place in totally different time periods, but they’ve got some great similarities in themes, such as persecution of being a witch. Maybe that’s about it, but I love both of these books and think they’re great follow ups to each other!

If you like Stephenie Meyer, try… Dreamless by Josephine Angelini – I mean this in the best way though. Dreamless is a great read that you’ll want to pick up if you’re still floating from the Twilight high.

If you like Lauren Kate, try… Unearthly by Cynthia Hand – Angels aside, Cynthia Hand’s writing is beautiful and fun and reminds me sometimes of Lauren Kate’s. There are great similar elements in their series, as well as that same “will they, won’t they, of course they will, what is wrong with you?!” vibe going on.

I think that should hold you up for now… so it’s not 10. What are you gonna do? Not read my blog anymore?

*thinks about it*

Wait, don’t! Please read my blog! I’ll give you 10 next week!

  1. Mental note: Come back here after work and ACTUALLY look into the recommendations! Work is too busy today for me to hang out in the blogging world 😦 😦


  2. Grave Mercy is on my too read list for the exact same reason you listed: I heard it was a lot like Cashore’s books. Can’t wait to get to it!
