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. 


  1. Heart's blood is such a beautiful book :) Enchanted is also a good recommendation! Happy reading and good luck!
