The latest addition to the library is a “read-alikes” binder. I started with some of the most popular books in the library and pulled out about five “read-alikes” for each one. These are books that are similar in terms of topic, problems, theme, or setting. This will be helpful for you if you liked a book such as Crank, The Hunger Games, or Thirteen Reasons Why because it will point you in the direction of similar books . For example, right now Thirteen Reasons Why is the #1 book at Ridley High School. If you enjoyed that book, you will probably also enjoy reading:
- If I Stay by Gayle Forman
- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
- The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
If you especially like a certain book or author, please let me know and I’ll make up a read-alike list to add to the binder! Or if you’re interested in seeing the lists, stop by the library anytime to take a look at the binder.
