Top Ten Tuesday (#15)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish!

This week's topic is a Ten Books To Read If You Like This Book/Author type thing! Here goes!

1. If you liked:


Read:


I thought that these books had a similar feel to them. They're not really THAT similar, but when I read Spinning Starlight, it reminded me of These Broken Stars. They both deal with space travel and I think that the character names are really similar.

1. If you liked:


Read:


These both have the same old time feel to them. But I think that These Shallow Graves took place more in the late 1800's were as The Diviners was more 1920's I think. They're both murder mysteries. In my personal opinion, if you liked The Diviners, you'll like These Shallow Graves more.

3. If you liked:


Read:


Both of these books deal with rape culture, but from different points of view.

4. If you liked:


Read:


These series really aren't anything alike, but when I was reading about the competition to become the King's Champion in Throne of Glass, it made me think of The Hunger Games. But considerably less bloody and intense. But still really good!

5. If you liked:


Read:


Both of them deal with women basically just being baby-makers.

6. If you liked:


Read:


They give you feels in a similar way.

7. If you liked:


Read:


They both take place during World War II.

8. If you liked:


Read:


They're both retellings of Beauty and the Beast so if you like that kind of thing, then check it out!

Okay. I really can't think of anymore comparisons so I guess you're just getting 8 from me today! :)

  1. I was actually going to add We Were Liars and Vanishing Girls to my list. They really are similar in the way they made me feel in the end (a crying mess). I've been really wanting to read The Glass Arrow. I didn't know that Eve had a similar concept!

    1. I didn't even like We Were Liars and I still bawled like a baby at the ends of it. The Glass Arrow is really good! I hope you get to read it soon! And it makes me feel good that you learned something from reading my post! Haha!

    1. Most of these books are pretty good! The only ones that I didn't really actually like were We Were Liars and The Diviners. Definitely recommend Spinning Starlight!! I loved it.

    1. I did end up liking These Broken Stars, but like I didn't love it in the beginning. For the longest time I just HATED Lilac, but she eventually grew on me. Spinning Starlight was really good in my opinion. I just saw a picture of the finished copy on twitter and it's SOO PRETTY! Ugh, I need it. I really did not like the Diviners at all. I found it to be waaaaaay longer than it needed to be and the end felt super anticlimactic to me! It took me like a week to read that book and normally it takes me a day or two. And yeah, the second book just recently came out, Lair of Dreams! I loved the Book Thief as well and I hope that you get around to Wolf by Wolf soon because it is magnificent!

  4. This is a really great list. I need to read ACOTAR, Spinning Starlight, and These Broken Stars. I actually was apprehensive about Vanishing Girls because although I really like the way Lauren Oliver writes, I'm not always a big fan of her plots. Great post!

    1. You definitely need to read ACOTAR because it is SO AMAZING!!!!! Also I would definitely recommend Spinning Starlight, it's awesome! I didn't LOVE Vanishing Girls, but I did really like it. Mostly because I love Lauren Oliver. I can see where you're coming from when you say you're not the biggest fan of her plots though. The only ones of her books that I can say that I truly LOVED were the Delirium books! I loved that series!
