Challenge(s): Like This, Try This hosted by 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. 

If you liked "Delirum" by Lauren Oliver... 
  • try "Matched" by Ally Condie. Both main characters live in a dystopian community where every move is controlled by the government and love isn't a choice.
If you liked "Heart's Blood" by Juliet Marillier...
  • try "Enchanted" by Alethea Kontis because both are beautiful retellings of fairy tales with lots and lots of magic.
  • try "Red Riding Hood" (2011) because not only both are retelllings od fairy takes as the main characters face many mysteries and fight for their love.
