Top Ten Nineteen

Top ten if you like this ... try this

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/feature hosted by The Broke and Bookish.  This weeks topic was one I actually found quite hard to think of a list to for some reason, as alot of the books I would suggest normally I realised were either quite obvious (e.g. in the same series/ by the same author) or may have also been one alot of people would have heard of.  So with that in mind, I managed to put together a list of recommendations I hope may be less known (with some exceptions).  So here are my top ten if you like this... try this: 

1) If you liked Twilight  -  Try My Blood Approves - Another vampire series that focuses on a family, plus it includes a love triangle.  What else could you want? 

2) If you liked The Mortal Instruments - Try The Switched Series - I found it quite hard to think of another urban fantasy, so decided on this instead as it includes the supernatural element of trolls and is just another great series to try, particularly if you like some of the forbidden love and family side of the shadowhunter series.   

3) If you liked Anna and The French Kiss -  Try The Geography of You and Me - Another cutesy romance which includes amazing settings and some truly heartwarming scenes.  

4) If you liked The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Try We All Looked Up -  Another story set around school and unique, different characters as well as a key friendship.  Its also just an amazing read! 

5) If you liked We Were Liars -  Try Ketchup Clouds - I actually have yet to finish this one, but that doesn't mean it can't be recommended.  Another with a secret and betrayal which always keeps you guessing, jumps between present and past and is told in a unique style.  

6) If you liked The Book Thief - Try The Midnight Palace - If haven't read one or either of these books, then you need to because they are both amazing stories told beautifully and set against a historical backdrop.

7) If you liked If I Stay - Try Everyday - Both of the main characters in these spent most of the book in out of body experiences, with the main character in Everyday being more of a soul than a body.  They also both show how love can have life changing effects.  

8) If you liked The Fault In Our Stars - Try Before I Die - Again, I know many people have also heard of this one, but if you have yet to read it and liked TFIOS, then I would definitely give it a go.  A story about a girl with cancer falling in love and learning to make the most of the time she has left.  Warning, it's also just as emotional.
