Like, Try, Why

We have weekly YA book recommendations right here! In this week’s Like, Try, Why, we recommend books to fans of Such Wicked Intent, The Pact and Circle of Magic.



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.

Trying to decide what to read next? Let Epic Reads' weekly LIKE, TRY, WHY feature help you find your next read!



If you love gothic thrillers, especially ones that retell the classics, then check out The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd. It’s a retelling of the classic, The Island of Doctor Moreau!

Fans of Jodi Picoult’s The Pact looking for something heart-wrenching but hopeful (and without the suicide pact) should check out Nobody But Us, the new release from Kristin Halbrook!

If you’re a fantasy lover, especially novels like the Circle of Magic series by Tamora Pierce, you should look into adding City of A Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster to your bookshelf!
