Top Ten Tuesday: If You Liked X Author...

This is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's Topic: If You Liked X Author Try this...

1) If You liked the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling try: The Sister's Grimm series by Michael Buckley-Same sort of magical feel with fairytale characters and also parallels things like prejudice and it's a good way to learn about how some of the actual written classic fairytales went (hint: Disney got it wrong).

2) If you liked the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer try: Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead for better written and more entertaining vampires and romance.

3) If you liked Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins try: 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson for similar coming of age fun in Europe.

4) If you liked The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare try: The Demon's Lexicon Trilogy by Sarah Rees Brennan for a similar feeling urban fantasy character driven world.

5) If you liked Graceling by Kristin Cashore try: Tamora Pierce's Tortall series for similar girls who kick ass. The first book is Alanna: The First Adventure but really you can start any of the first books with the girls (I myself picked up Daine's first without realizing it was part of a larger series).

6) If you liked the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr try: the Tithe Trilogy by Holly Black for similar feeling dark faerie world.

7) If you liked Halo by Alexandra Adornetto try: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand for more angels (and in my opinion better written ones).

8) If you liked The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins try: Battle Royale to see why people are saying the books are so much alike (I personally don't prescribe to the theory that HG is a BR rip-off but I do think there was definite influence going on).

9) If you liked Tempest by Julie Cross try: Hourglass by Myra McEntire for more time travel shenanigans.

10) If you liked Clarity by Kim Harrington try: 1-800-WHERE-R-U by Meg Cabot (and the Mediator series) for more awesome girls with paranormal gifts.
