A little bit late for me, but oops! Let’s get straight to the book recommendation goodness!
If&Then Thursdays is a book meme created by Alex@ Young at Heart Books. How do you participate? It’s easy! All you have to do is choose two books that are somewhat related in theme, writing style, genre, etc. Tell us how they are similar and why we would like them! All recommendations should be made in this format:
“If you like Book A, then you might enjoy Book B”
If you enjoyed (or perhaps didn’t)…
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Okay, back when I was first starting YA, I lovedddddddddddd this book. Um, fallen angels? Sign me up. Classic bad boy? Total heart eyes. Then as I grew older, I looked back at it, and went erm, there was something a bit sketchy about that. Okay, a lot when it came to Patch. BUT childhood me loved it (which was a bit concerning with Mr. Patch’s attitude sometimes – childhood me and adult me might need a little chit chat). And I can tell you a few reasons why: the small town atmosphere, the mysterious darker tone to the novel, mysterious shadowy evil, people with wings ;), and a man in a leather jacket (I’m pretty sure he drove a motorcycle – did he or am I just going crazy?). Then you look at the characters, and they’re totally problematic, but I did love that concept. Check out more about it here.
You may enjoy…
Secrets of Skin and Stone by Wendy Laine
Warning: this book does contain topics of self-harm. Just want to let you know before you read it. Okay, this book isn’t a book about fallen angels, but instead of gargoyles. Um, super sign me up for that, too. I’ve never seen anything about gargoyles before, and apparently me and people with wings are still good from childhood. XD But this story has all the elements of Hush, Hush that I did love – the small town Southern atmosphere, the darker tone to the novel where it a bit more grittier than the average YA, and the mysterious shadowy evil, WINGS, and a guy with a leather jacket and motorcycle. However, this story took all of these elements and made it better, in my opinion. So, if you didn’t enjoy Hush, Hush, but were intrigued by the concept, I think you might really enjoy this book. If you did like Hush, Hush, you totally might like this one since it had all the things Hush, Hush had. Check it out here.
