If You Like This, You'll Like That! // Recommendation Tag

Sunday, May 29, 2016

Hey guys! *waves* Okay, first things first, I swear my blog isn't dead! I've just been really, really, really, busy--finals coming up, HOMEWORK, projects in almost every class... Okay, so *maybe* I'm still on social media, but you get the point. Hehe. (Did I mention that I'm also sleep deprived? I'm sleep deprived.)

If you're wondering, yes, I'm still reading, in fact, I'm currently reading Illuminae. It's a great book, but for some reason it's taking me a REALLY long time to finish. Dunno why. :-( I'm not only behind on my reading, but I'm also behind on my reviews, like I have, what, 6 books I've read and have not reviewed yet? For me, it's panic everywhere, not just at the disco. I haven't even posted in the month of May, for crying out loud. So, um, happy May? BUT! I'm here now, so better late than never, right? 

OKAY. (Jeez, sorry about that ramble, haha. I haven't been able to get anything out for a while.) Today I am here with a TAG! I was tagged by the wonderful Sue Kooky (If you haven't checked out her blog, you really should, it's awesome) a long time ago...*cringe* but I was in that whole reading/blogging slump thing, so um, I never got to it. But here it is! 

Wait I have to nominate people first, right? *crickets* Okay, here we go. 

Analee at Book Snacks
(Her blog is amazing!) 


Paige at The Paige Turner 
(I know you haven't posted in a while, but a change in your blog look must mean that you are still alive...right?

NOW we can get to the tag. (Finally!) 

If you liked...                                                       Then you'll enjoy...

(Um, hello, they both have fish on the cover. Haha, just kidding.) They're both about two young, diverse girls who learn to overcome their problems in different ways. Out Of My Mind is about a girl named Melody Brooks who has cerebral palsy. It causes her to not be able to control her body movements, walk, or talk. Her story is all about her getting more comfortable about who she is and becoming stronger because of her challenges. It's a great book. Fish In A Tree is a book about a girl named Ally who has dyslexia. In the beginning, she doesn't know it, and she feels un-smart for not being able to read as well as the other students. She's afraid to ask for help, even when she needs, it but discovers that there's nothing to be ashamed of. 

If you liked...                                                                           Then you'll absolutely *LOVE* 

These books have two AMAZING protagonists and a bunch of awesome side characters. If you want what I call "the feels" (basically a wave of emotions crashing around in your head) then these books are for you. Everything, Everything is about Madeline (AKA Maddy), a girl who's stuck at home all the time. Why? Because she's allergic to the world. She's fine with it, really. But then the boy next door appears and that's when the tables turn. Not If I See You First is Parker's story. Parker is blind. She's also fierce, loving, a maybe a little selfish. The characters in these two books are *so* wonderful, and you just can't help falling in love with them, and their story. <3 

If you liked...                                                                   Then you'll like...

If you want a story that stays with you long after the last page, these two books ought to do the trick. Every Soul A Star a beautifully written novel in written in 3 perspectives. The characters are so unique. They really have depth and are described really well. I can't say much about the book without giving spoilers so that's that.  (I promise it's a really good book!) Lost In The Sun is about a boy named Trent who has a rather...scarring past. Yeah. Scarring. Throughout the book, he learns to let go and move on, since you can't dwell on things forever. I honestly really don't know why I paired these two books together, but JUST GO WITH IT. 

Okay, last one: 

If you enjoyed:                                                                Then you'll *LOVE* (and vice versa)

Ta da! You guys KNEW I had to sneak in Keeper. Hehe. Okay, this is probably the most unique pairing of this entire list, so hear me. Out. These two books have what I call the *IT* factor. It has just what grabs your attention and it keeps you interested. It makes you actually care about the characters. While you guys probably already know all about Keeper, You're Invited is about these four girls who start a party planning business. Interesting, right? That's the *IT* factor. Another thing these two books have in common is...SQUAD GOALS!!! They both have awesome characters who really care about one another. Kay, that's all I got. 


Thanks so much for tuning in, even after I've been gone. *cringe* Sorry! I promise I'll whip up a YA review for y'all sometime soon! MG is coming up, probably after all the YA stuff, but I've already gotten the books! I just have to read them first. Hope you guys have a nice week! Thanks again!
