Happy Tuesday! I know we've been slacking a bit but we're back. And this top ten seemed to really have us stumped. Thanks to the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish, who host this weekly meme, we are bringing you ten books we think you'd like if you like x, y, or z.
Fan of Sookie Stackhouse? Then try Guilty Pleasures (Book 1 of the Anita Blake Novels) by Laurell K. Hamilton. In the same fashion as The Southern Vampire Mysteries, vampirism has recently become legal, which of course means, vampires, vampires everywhere. Anita isn't quite like Sookie, unless you count her countless supernatural suitors and the danger lurking at every turn, but the difference between these two women is what sets the books apart.
Once upon a time I loved a little book called Twilight. If you did too I would suggest Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. There are no vampires here, however, the formula of the book is similar. If you liked Edward Cullen, you will love Patch.
Down the Rabbit Hole I blissfully go. Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my favorite stories, making Splintered by A.G. Howard a treat. No, this isn't Alice's story, but rather her descendent, Alyssa. A "what came after" sorta tale, that left little to want.
I wasn't the biggest fan of The Spectacular Now, but I didn't completely dislike it either. My theory is that I love male characters such as Ezra from The Beginning Of Everything by Robin Schneider so much that I've become a harsh judge. If you loved the voice of Sutter, I'm betting you'll love Ezra too. Give him a chance.
If you like Arrested Development, you'll love This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper. It had the dark human that Arrested Development has and the dysfunctional family to go with it. They both have very prominent patriarchs that force these families who shouldn't be together, to be together.
If the show Supernatural is up your alley, Penryn & The End of Days Series by Susan Ee is for you. No their are no hot brothers, but there are snarky angels causing the end of the world. It gets really twisted and graphic so the horror aspect is very prominent as well.
If you're into Veronica Mars, (Like I am) then you may like Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu. This has an air of mystery to it that you get in VM. It also has a lot of he said she said that Veronica has.
If you like Dawson's Creek, then you should enjoy the Remember When Trilogy by T. Torrest. It is all about first love and heartbreak. If you liked the will they, won't they that Joey and Dawson or even Joey and Pacey had, you'll enjoy this sweet tale.
Finally, if you like Pretty In Pink, then you will LOVE The Distance Between Us by Kasie West. Opposites attract and bloom in this story. Rich boy and the girl from the wrong side of the tracks getting together is a story we always wish would happen in real life. Distance really has the doubt, hope and hurdles that Andie and Blane have in the movie.
Until Next Time!
