Who knows, maybe someone will actually find one of my readalike suggestions helpful afterall ;-)
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is a partial freebie:
Top Ten Books to Read if You Like…
7. If You Liked Divergent Trilogy, try The Eden Trilogy by Keary Taylor
Similarities: Badass protagonist (ok, actually, I didn’t really love Tris, but she did have certain badass abilities) who finds out she’s different and then uses her difference to fight for what’s right.
Differences: More post-apocalyptic than dystopian. Cyborg zombies (it’s better than it sounds).
6. If You Liked The Maze Runner, try The Red Sector Chronicles by Krystle Jones
Similarities: Cross between dystopian and post-apocalyptic.
Differences: Maze Runner has Cranks, Red Sector has vampires (but sci-fi-esque vampires) plus a vampire-human war. No puzzle-solving and task-completing. More romance.
5. If You Liked The Mara Dyer Trilogy, try The Nocte Trilogy by Courtney Cole
Similarities: Haven’t read Mara Dyer, so please correct me if I’m wrong… YA genre. Love interest you can’t help but love, too. All sorts of mysterious and eerie.
Differences: Mara Dyer is paranormal, Nocte is a psychological thriller.
4. If You Liked Harry Potter, try The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg
Similarities: Magic! But straight-up magic that has to be learned by humans, not just supernatural creatures with inherent, instinctual powers. Big showdowns with bad guys you love to hate.
Differences: Older characters. More focus on romance. Completely different types of stories.
3. If You Liked The Night Circus, try Girl on a Wire by Gwenda Bond
Similarities: YA genre. Romance, magic, and circus all rolled into one.
Differences: I haven’t actually read The Night Circus yet, so… (I told you this was a hard TTT for me, cut me some slack!)
2. If You Liked The Black Dagger Brotherhood, try Thieves by Lexi Blake
Similarities: Vampires, BDSM, and occasionally menages.
Differences: To be honest, I haven’t actually read BDB either, but I have a feeling Thieves might be less dark. And funnier. Also, it’s not really BDSM but still has LOTS of kink.
1. If you Liked Supernatural (especially if you ship Destiel), try The Incubus Saga by Amanda Meuwissen
Similarities: Fantasy genre. Two super close brothers driving around the country and hunting down supernatural creatures. Lots of feels.
Differences: The main character actually DOES fall in love with the creature they team up with. And the creature is an incubus, not an angel.
