Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.
This week our topic is to suggests books to read if you like a particular author or book. I’ve decided to divide this list into two. Some of my suggestions are obvious but I’ve also tried to include one or two unpredictable picks that makes the list a little bit more interesting.
If you like Anna and the French Kiss, I would recommend these books.
1. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour Morgan Matson: Matson’s books are often fun summer adventures that will make you laugh, cry and smile. Not only do you get a swoon-worthy romance, there is also a lot of heart to her books and there are other relationships, such as family & friendship, that play an equally important role in the story.
2. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick: An obvious choice. It’s the characters that take center stage in Huntley’s work and within her books we explore a multitude of different dynamics and explore the way people interact with others and the differences in the nature of their relationships.
3. Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway: Again the characters are at the heart of her work. This books focuses on action and consequences and the way a traumatic event effects an entire community. It’s a story driven by emotion with a focus on the troubles of reconnecting, confusion, betrayal, friendship, family and love.
4. A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall: This is a purely charming book. I found that the concept of having the story told from the people on the outside looking in was such a refreshing and unique reading experience. It’s an easy read, full of humour, charm and quirkiness.
5. Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler: Family, friendship, mystery, love and reconnecting. Those are the components that easily summarises this book.
6. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey: This series looks at the fallout of an alien invasion. The story is told from multiple perspectives and keeps you on your toes as you’re constantly questioning who you should trust.
7. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi: Two worlds collide. Here we get a story that looks at two separate worlds; the futuristic and primitive. This is a story built on trust and loyalty and looks at how these two worlds are forced to come together in order to survive.
8. Angelfall by Susan Ee: Angels are not cute cherubs or your typical bad boy in this series. The angels are warriors, and they are both fierce and vengeful. In the middle of an Apocalypse we follow Penryn’s journey and her determination to keep her family safe and the risks she takes in order to survive.
9. Vicious by V. E. Schwab: This story is like a game of cat and mouse. There are no heroes in this book, just two people that believe they’re doing the right thing. This book is full of jealousy, anger, manipulation, suspense and betrayal. It’s the kind of book that will keep you guessing.
10. Red Rising by Pierce Brown: A futuristic society that embodies the brutality of classical civilization. Intense is how I’d summarise this journey. There is no sugarcoating. This world is brutal, harsh and heartbreaking. The characters are far from perfect but that makes them all the more interesting and real.
Those are my recommendations. Tell me, who made it to your list?
