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, if you you’re looking for a psychological thriller like Wake by Lisa McMann, I suggest checking out Slide by Jill Hathaway. If you like parodies of the paranormal genre, especially if you enjoyed Paranormalcy by Kiersten White, then the recently released Team Human by Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan should be next on your reading list. Finally, if you’re looking for something in the realistic lit genre, similar to Sarah Dessen novel such as Lock and Key, that explores first-loves and growing up — take a look at Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott!

**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!
