I’ve been giving a lot of books recommendations lately, so I decided to start a new weekly feature. Loved That, Read This is all about recommending books! There’s no set amount on how many books you have to recommend per week, or restrictions on what genres/age categories you can feature. Just have fun with this! If you want to participate, please link back to me in your post, and then link up below via the linky! Okay, with that said, here we go:
I recently devoured all the Hundred Oaks books by Miranda Kenneally this year, and I recommend them all. So I decided to do a Loved That, Read This post focusing on other books that could be recommended to lovers of this series.
Both of these books are set in small towns with a mostly close-knit community, and a focus on baseball/softball. There’s some drama, scandals, romance, and females who are a little afraid of being hurt. Calling It is for an older crowd though, since it’s an adult book.
In these two books, there’s a focus on a summer camp/summer program. There’s an aspect of religion in both as well. And finally, the guys like the girls a lot–and they’re super adorable. One thing to note is that When Dimple Met Rishi is much more diverse, so don’t go into Things I Can’t Forget looking for that.
Similarities between these two: rich teenage boys, poor/working teenage girls, attraction between the pair of teens even with their vast differences, and some drama. Both boys are swoony, although a bit naïve about how working class people live. And I think both Caymen and Savannah are strong, independent girls.
There’s a focus of music loving characters, and not to spoil anything, but there’s another big similarity in these related to music. P.S. I Like You has more of a mysterious vibe with the anonymous pen pal, but Jesse’s Girl will have you guessing about a few things too. Both books are super cute.
Have you read any of these books? I’d love to hear your thoughts on them! Don’t forget to link up below with the URL to your blog post (not your blog), and your name. Then if you have some time, check out some of the other links!
