Bout of Books Challenge | Like This, Try That

Day 4 of Bout of Books 11.0 is going fantastic!

Today's challenge is the Like This, Try That challenge hosted by Lori from Writing My Own Fairy Tale.
For my challenge, I decided to do a Like This, Try This challenge. It’s pretty self-explanatory. The rules are as follows:
  • You must recommend a book based on another book, movie, tv show, etc similar to this: “If you liked _____, you should try _____ because _____.”
  • Any genre and reading level is fine and you may use any set-up you like, so long as you’re recommending a book based on something else and explaining why.
  • Post your recommendation wherever you are posting your read-a-thon updates.
  • The challenge and giveaway will be open for 24 hours from midnight CST to midnight CST Thursday, August 21.
Here is an example:
If you liked this….
The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
You should try this…..
The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles, #1)
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
Because both are very well written, engaging YA fantasy books about strong females who go on long journeys and become leaders, whether they want to be or not.
 It’s that easy!
I'm excited to give this challenge a try. During Bout of Books 10.0 I didn't try, but this time I'm prepared!

If you liked this...
The Diviners by Libba Bray

You should try this...
Tortured Souls by Kimber Leigh Wheaton 

Because they both have a paranormal aspect dealing with psychic abilities. Both female characters have to battle a demon/evil spirit and defeat him for the sake of souls and humanity. Both demons/evil spirits want to obtain immortality and in some shape or form perform a number of rituals/sacrifices. These are both fantastic semi-horror ya novels that will keep you on the edge of your seat, guessing and sort of freaked out as well.

What is your like this, try this recommendation? 


  1. Ugh, I need to stop being so afraid of Diviners and just read it!

    Thanks for the suggestion! :)

    1. Diviners isn't that scary as everyone says and I'm deathly afraid to watch or read anything horror. This book is more so intriguing. There are moments where you can get scared, but then as the fear rises something happens that just keeps you wanting to know what happens next.

      I think it's a unique book!
