Top Ten Books for People who like X Author
10. If you like Suzanne Collin's dystopian like The Hunger Games, try Divergent by Veronica Roth or Wither by Lauren Destefano. Both have great dystopian worlds!
9. If you like the high fantasy like George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire try Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, which though it is YA (unlike Martin's books) it is an amazing high fantasy.
8.  If you like Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson books try The Accidental Hero by Matt Myklusch which is a great MG fantasy with a guy main character, or if you feel like you need some more modern mythology try Aimee Carter's The Goddess Test.
7. If you're in the mood for more faeries like Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey, try Wings by Aprilynne Pike, which has awesome faeries and a great world.
6. If you love Cassandra Clare's works, try A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford or The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. Both have characters just as funny and a plot just as entertaining.
5. If you're a Stephanie Meyer fan *insert angry mob who wants my head here* try Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver or Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed, both have great paranormal romance.
4. If you feel like you want more like Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid books try The Strange Case of Origami Yoda which is a hilarious middle school book written in the same style, with a Star Wars twist or Lucky Cap by Patrick Jennings, which is so funny!
3. If you like "fluffy" dystopians like Ally Condie's, try The Selection by Kiera Cass which has a plot just as good as any dystopian but not so much blood!
2. If you want a light romance like Stephanie Perkins's novels, try Patrick Jenning's Barb and Dingbat's Crybaby Hotline!
1. If you need a good historical mash-up like Seth Grahame-Smith's books, try Fateful by Claudia Gray, Titanic, with werewolves.


  1. Great list of recommendations! I really want to read Divergent, a lot of readers seem to love that book! :)
