THE PROBLEM: You just finished an amazing YA book and you want to keep that satisfied feeling going, but you don’t know what to read next. Or alternatively, you’ve read something amazing and have been searching for the perfect follow up read, but have come up short every time.
THE SOLUTION: Never fear readers, because Epic Reads is here to solve all your bookish problems. Introducing our weekly feature, “Like, Try, Why”! Each week we’ll pick a few popular books (and sometimes even TV shoes or movies!!) that we adored and then PERSONALLY recommend what to read next. This is no automated feature, this is the real thang y’all. So sit back, relax and let this week’s Like, Try, Why introduce you to your next epic read.
*I went with a bit of a theme for our “Try” section this week. Totally not on purpose, but since it happened, we’ll dub this week “Chicks with Weapons on the Cover….Week”.*
This week, if you love sexy, paranormal-romance stories featuring battling angels like in Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, I suggest checking out Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton. Forget everything you know about unicorns, and instead focus on the fact that Rampant by Diana Peterfreund features a bad-ass, creature slaying female protaganist. Seriously, think Buffy the Vampire Slayer but instead of vamps, she slays unicorns. If you’re more in the mood for a swashbuckling adventure story like Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer, then check out Steel by Carrie Vaughn!

**Booksellers and librarians!** We’re working hard to create high resolution print versions of each of our Like Try Whys, plus individual ones you can use to display on the shelves AND a black white version for those who don’t want to use colored ink! Stay tuned for updates on that project, coming your way soon!
