Loved That, Read This

 

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’ve read the first four books, but then for the other recommendations, I’ve only read one book from each pairing. But for the books I read, I loved them, and the other two are high on my TBR pile.

 

If you loved Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, then read Shuffle, Repeat.

These two books focus on playlists in cars (yay for music!), and another fun little connection between these are the fact that the parents know each other pretty well. Both of these books are on my favorites list, and have a swoony boy.

If you loved Lola and the Boy Next Door, then read The Start of Me and You.

Both of these feature kind of nerdy boys who are SUPER adorable. Once again these are two of my favorite books. The main characters are vastly different (Lola is more eccentric, while Paige is more reserved), but they’re both excellent reads.

If you loved Things I Can’t Forget, then read The Names They Gave Us.

I haven’t read The Names They Gave Us yet (I’m awful for letting Emery’s latest book sit so long unread). But based on the summary, it sounds similar to Things I Can’t Forget. Religious main characters being counselors at a summer camp. Both of these authors write swoony romances too!

If you loved When Dimple Met Rishi, then read Click’d.

I love how these two feature girl coders. I loved When Dimple Met Rishi, so I’m super excited to read Click’d. It’s written for a younger crowd (middle grade vs. young adult), but I’m sure it’s amazing. Once again, these books feature some kind of summer camp/program.

This week I decided to show authors who have a similar writing style/theme in their books.

 

If you loved Sarah Dessen, then read Morgan Matson.

They both like to focus on mostly the same small town in their books, and their earlier characters reappear in later books. The characters are engaging, and I could get lost in their books. Morgan is one of my new favorite authors, so I highly recommend her books, especially Since You’ve Been Gone.

If you loved Huntley Fitzpatrick, then read Miranda Kenneally.

I think both of these authors write super cute romances. Miranda has a sports focus on her books, but as someone who doesn’t really like sports, I still adored her Hundred Oaks series. I loved the audiobooks for Huntley’s books, and would recommend them to audiobook lovers. You could easily read either of these authors’ books in a day if you’re so inclined.

If you loved Elle Kennedy, then read Miranda Kenneally.

Yes, I’m recommending Miranda twice. Anyways I’ve only read books 1-2 of Elle’s Off-Campus series, but I LOVED them. If you’re looking for some sports books with a little less hot romance, check out Miranda’s Hundred Oaks series. They’re fantastic, and geared towards a younger group of people (YA vs. NA). I still have a ton of Elle books to read, so I better get on that!

If you loved Sophie Kinsella, then read Jill Mansell.

These two are authors from the United Kingdom, and I think they both have a similar feel to their stories. Although to be honest, I’ve found myself enjoying Jill’s books more lately than Sophie’s. I think because there’s more of a focus on romance throughout each book? Not sure.

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.

 

If you loved Stealing Parker, then read Calling It.

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.

If you loved When Dimple Met Rishi, then read Things I Can’t Forget.

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.

If you loved The Distance Between Us, then read Racing Savannah.

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.

If you loved P.S. I Like You, then read Jesse’s Girl.

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.

If you loved Scoring Wilder, then read Boomerang.

Both of these books feature feisty females who are trying to focus on their goals without letting these cute soccer guys distract them. All the characters are well fleshed out, and I’d highly recommend these two. Plus they’re only $2.99 for Kindle copies.

If you loved Firsts, then read Suffer Love.

These two books have teen girls with family issues who are trying to take control of their lives in very similar ways. Suffer Love is a little less sexualized, and a little more romantic. But they’re both fantastic reads.

If you loved Up to This Pointe, then read Paint My Body Red.

These girls are escaping their current life situations by leaving town, and both books are told in ‘Then’ and ‘Now’ timelines. One thing to note is that Paint My Body Red focuses on heavier topics, like suicide and mental illness.

If you loved Once and for All, then read Underwater.

There’s a major connection between these two, but I’m not going to spoil anything. Let’s just say the main characters are going through emotional issues, and that they find new guys to focus on in the time being.

I’ve been watching a lot of TV, so I decided to recommend books based on shows I’ve enjoyed.

 

If you loved Gossip Girl, then read The Royals series.

Rich lifestyle, scandal/secrets, elite school, and hot guys. There’s definitely enough drama for Gossip Girl fans. I’ve only read books 1-2 of The Royals, but I think it’s just the kind of entertainment GG watchers would enjoy.

If you loved Pitch, then read Hundred Oaks series.

Pitch is more new adult/adult based, and the Hundred Oaks books are targeting a younger audience, but it’s females doing sports. In book 1, Jordan plays football–a male dominated sport like baseball.

If you loved White Collar, then read Heist Society series.

I need to watch the last 1-2 seasons of White Collar, and I haven’t read the Heist Society books yet…but I’ve read rave reviews by bloggers I trust. They seem to have similar themes, so it seems natural to recommend these. I’m hoping to read them very soon.

If you loved The Originals, then read Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Who doesn’t love more vampires and their drama? The Black Dagger Brotherhood series focuses on the ruling vampires like The Originals does. There’s some fighting, a little bit of gore, some romance, etc. I’ve only read books 1-3, but I’ve really enjoyed them all.

Read This 17

If you loved Divergent, then read Delirium.

I’ve been noticing people in the industry still steering clear of dystopian books, so in honor of my love for them, here’s a book rec. Both of these books feature a society surrounded by a wall, and the occupants are divided in some way (factions/factionless vs. cured/uncured). Both books feature main characters who slowly realize that their world isn’t what it seems.

Read This 18

If you loved Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here, then read All the Feels.

These two books focus on main characters who are obsessed with either a TV show, or movie, franchise. Scarlett’s in high school, and Liv’s in college. Both girls express their grief over their respective fandom being cancelled by doing something creative. Scarlett writes fanfiction, and Liv starts a campaign (and does movie clips) to try and bring her fandom back.

Read This 19

If you loved Sloppy Firsts, then read The Boyfriend List.

I’m giving two “older” series some love! Both of these main characters are very opinionated, and a bit out there sometimes. Each of the girls lose their best friend in some way (no, the best friends don’t die). The Jessica Darling series is 5 books (some of which are NA aged), and the Ruby Oliver series is 4 books.

Read This 20

If you loved Remember Me?, then read Airhead.

These two books feature main characters (adult vs. YA) who don’t remember everything when they wake up. Their lives are changed when they wake up in the hospital after their accidents. Both books have a bit of darkness to them, and lots of secrets/lies that keep you flipping the pages.

Read This 13

If you loved Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, then read Open Road Summer.

Both books focus on summer road trips, and music plays a big part in each. Plus there’s cute boys, which is always a plus! I think Morgan and Emery’s writing styles have the same kind of vibe, so if you love one, you’ll likely love the other. If you want to try out Open Road Summer, the Kindle ebook is only $1.99!

Read This 14

If you loved Did I Mention I Love You?, then read The Possibility of Now.

The main characters are teen girls with estranged dads; in the books, they go visit/live with their dads. Romance is less of a focus in The Possibility of Now. One major difference is that Did I Mention I Love You? is the first book in a trilogy, and The Possibility of Now is a standalone. And if you haven’t read Did I Mention I Love You? yet either, the Kindle copy is $1.99!

Read This 15

If you loved I Was Here, then read My Heart and Other Black Holes.

Both books focus on the topic of suicide, so they’re a bit dark. I Was Here shows the aftermath after someone commits suicide, and My Heart and Other Black Holes shows the exact opposite: someone who’s considering suicide. I listened to the audiobooks for both of these, and highly recommend the narrators!

Read This 16

If you loved Twenty Boy Summer, then read The Start of Me and You.

These books have one major thing in common: the main characters’ boyfriends have died. They’re starting to put themselves out there again, considering the possibility of love once more. The friends are pretty awesome in these books. Yay girl power! If you haven’t read Twenty Boy Summer yet, the Kindle copy is $1.99 right now!

Read This 9

If you loved Everything, Everything, then read Underwater.

In both of these books, the main characters are trapped inside their houses, but for very different reasons. Both books have a twist you might, or might not, see coming, depending on how good you are at guessing/reading into foreshadowing. Underwater is slightly darker in subject matter.

Read This 10

If you loved Lock and Key, then read My Life Next Door.

Boy next door romances, plus secrets abound, are featured in both of these books. My Life Next Door is a little lighter in subject matter compared to Lock and Key. It’s also quite a bit funnier. George, Jase’s kid brother, is pretty hilarious.

Read This 11

If you loved The Boy Most Likely To, then read What You Left Behind.

Both books feature male MCs (The Boy Most Likely To has dual POVs with a female too). These teen boys are going through some tough times, all in the midst of falling in love. They also have something major in common, but I don’t want to spoil the surprise. You’ll have to read to see!

Read This 12

If you loved Eleanor & Park, then read Just Visiting.

For these two books, there’s one “poor” white character, and one “richer” diverse character. Both books feature dual POVs, a love of music, and are sad in their own ways. A major difference is Eleanor & Park is set in the past (80’s), but Just Visiting is set in the present day.

One note before we go to the book recs: This week’s post is a special edition of LGBTQIA+ books in honor of pride month being over, but not forgotten. I, for one, want to read diverse books all year. I bought quite a few books last month that I can’t wait to read ASAP, and I also placed some holds at the library.

Read This 5

If you loved George, then read If I Was Your Girl.

If you loved George, then I think you’ll love a teen’s perspective when it comes to be transgendered. The writing is beautiful and eye-opening in both books, especially for someone who isn’t well informed about being trans. Both main characters are very likable, and easy to relate to.

Read This 6

If you loved None of the Above, then read Symptoms of Being Human.

Both are unique POVs that I don’t think get told very often. One is about an intersex person, and the other is about a gender fluid person. Both books are amazing, and some of the events tug at your heartstrings for what the main characters had to endure. There’s a blog in Symptoms of Being Human, and the posts were some of my favorite parts.

Read This 7

If you loved I’ll Give You the Sun, then read Fans of the Impossible Life.

Both books feature multiple POVs, private schooling, and complicated relationships. I felt a lot of feels while reading both. I feel like both books were a little dark, but especially Fans of the Impossible Life, because there’s a focus on mental health, bullying, etc.

Read This 8

If you loved Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, then read Everything Leads to You.

If you want a book that focus more on the story line than on romance, then this might be a good choice for you. There’s romance towards the end of both of these books, but the main focus is on things like friendships, jobs, etc. Just note that there are a few major differences (set in the past versus present, male versus female POV, race, family dynamics, etc.) between these two lovely novels.

Read This 1

If you loved Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, then read Tell Me Three Things.

In these books, email is a common form of communication between the main character and the love interest. Half the fun in these books is trying to figure out who the mystery guy is, while experiencing plenty of feels along the way!

Read This 2

If you loved Dreamland, then read The Girl Who Fell.

Both books focus on a darker subject (abusive relationships). The writing in both of these books was spectacular. If that’s not enough to convince you, then let me inform you of the fact that The Girl Who Fell was chosen as an Amazon ‘best young adult books of 2016 so far’ pick!

Read This 3

If you loved Speak, then read The Way I Used to Be.

These books also deal with a darker subject, but this time it’s rape. Both books were beautifully written, and make your heart ache for what these characters had to endure. One major difference is each book’s time frame: Speak focuses on one year, while The Way I Used to Be is spread across all four years of high school.

Read This 4

If you loved Second Chance Summer, then read The F- It List

A couple more emotional books (I’m noticing a pattern in this post). In addition to both main characters experiencing grief/denial over their fathers, I also think they open themselves up to the possibilities of life as the plot progresses. Fair warning, The F- It List is a sex positive book.
