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.
This week we have a special edition of LIKE, TRY, WHY! We have five books, all of which are included in our Epic Firsts program! Here’s the scoop:
If you like a high-fantasy, cloak and dagger adventure like Graceling by Kristin Cashore, then you need to give Defiance by C.J. Redwine a try! For fans of tech savvy, hacker-extraordinaire Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, you’ll love Noa, the teen version of Lisbeth in Don’t Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon. Did you love the competing souls story in The Host by Stephenie Meyer? Give What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang a shot! If the mystery of the parallel universes is what keeps you hooked to the TV show Fringe, then you better start reading Through to You by Emily Hainsworth. Finally, if you’re looking for a high-stakes dystopian complete with corrupted governments and a ruined landscape like in Pure by Julianna Baggott, move Breathe by Sarah Crossan to the top of your TBR pile!
