Ten Books to Read if You Like These Popular Books/Authors
If you love fantasy series about strong women, Tamora Pierce is the place to start. If you've started with Sarah J. Maas instead, however, you should read The Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce ASAP.
If you're keen for another story in a small Southern town after reading To Kill a Mockingbird, Carson McCullers is a great choice. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is her best.
If you enjoyed We Were Liars' suspenseful tale of teenagers with grisly secrets, The Secret History takes the theme to another level.
Paper Towns left you wanting more tragically misunderstood manic pixie dream girls? You're next read should definitely be The Virgin Suicides.
These two might not seem similar but I think they have the same sense of quirkiness and sincerity. Eleanor and Cassandra have the same wit and charm.
Two writers who can capture the nuance of emotional truths in contemporary life. I don't think it's a stretch to call Sarah Dessen YA's very own Anne Tyler.
Loved Ask the Passengers and now looking for another coming of age story about a young woman discovering her sexuality? Oranges Are not the Only Fruit sets the standard for the genre.
If you're looking for more otherworldly London after reading The Bone Season, look no further than Neil Gaiman's classic, Neverwhere.
The extravagance of 1920s New York pairs well with the life of luxuriating conjured up by Françoise Sagan's tale of a summer in French Riviera of the 1950s.
Two truly astounding post-apocalyptic tales that complement each other very well. The best of the genre.
