In this week’s Like, Try, Why, we recommend books for fans of The Secret Circle by L.J. Smith, How the García Girls Lost Their Accents by Julia Alvarez and Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.
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’S RECOMMENDATIONS:
Whether you were a fan of The Secret Circle show or books, your favorite series is coming to an end. Don’t go through witchy withdrawal! Start reading the new series, Spellcaster, by Evernight-author Claudia Gray!
If you like stories that see the main characters come of age while searching for a sense of place and struggle to incorporate their heritage and their pasts with futures that are not what they expected, then add Flowers in the Sky by Lynn Joseph to your TBR pile.
If you fell in love with the dystopian world and romance in the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, it’s time to binge-read the Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver. The final book, Requiem, hit shelves this week, so if you’ve been planning to read this series, now is the time to do it!
