If You Liked This Book… Try This One Next

Hello everybody! Today, I’m doing a post I’ve kind of wanted to do for years but somehow never have even though I see it done loads on Booktube, which is to recommend a book based on one certain other book/series. I’m a bit nervous in case people don’t like my version of it and my choices, but anyway, onto the post!


<!–more–>
If you liked COUNTING BY SEVENS, then try OCTOBER, OCTOBER

These probably don’t sound that similar on paper, particularly as one takes place in Britain while the other is in America, but something about the writing just really strongly reminded me of reading Counting by 7s years ago when I picked up October, October earlier this month, after Rach recommended it to me. They’re both very special, powerful contemporaries with beautiful messages.

If you liked the SORROW DUOLOGY, then try the STORM WITCH books

If I’m ever reading YA fantasy, it’s generally because it’s political fantasy in some way, and hearing Sorrow was like the West Wing in a different world is definitely what convinced me to give it a chance. Storm Witch is middle grade, but it too has a formidable main character who I love a great deal, and it has similar vibes in terms of the power struggle, even though Storm Witch has a bit more magic.

If you liked LETTERS TO THE LIGHTHOUSE, then try ANNA AT WAR

These are both set in a similar time period, and Letters explores the story of British evacuees in World War Two, but Anna at War focuses on a Jewish German girl who has come to Britain on the Kindertransport. I love both of them desperately.

If you liked A GIRL CALLED OWL/SHADOWS OF WINTERSPELL, try THE MIDNIGHT GUARDIANS

These aren’t exactly the same because Amy Wilson’s work is contemporary and the Midnight Guardians is historical, but if you enjoy reading about fae and adventures and friendship, I think you’d probably enjoy one if you liked the other.

If you like SOPHIE ANDERSON’S WRITING, try THE WILD MAGIC TRILOGY

The fairytale/folk tale, slightly ethereal vibe that Sophie’s work has, particularly in the Castle of Tangled Magic, is why I’ve paired them with this trilogy, which begins with Begone the Raggedy Witches. They’re really interesting fantasies that are a bit different to the majority of MG fantasy, the writing is beautiful and I think the stories they have to tell are so wonderful.



Would you be interested in seeing more posts like this? Are there any specific books you’d want to be included if I did do any? I’d love to hear in the comments!

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve Picked Up Because of Blogger Recommendations

Hello everybody!

Today, I’m taking part in Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and today’s prompt was to pick a past topic. I’ve decided to go for books I’ve picked up because other bloggers have recommended to me; some of which I’ve read and others that are still on my TBR (and I haven’t got a full ten, which I just want to point out in case anyone thought I couldn’t count 😜). Onto the post!
