Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, where we get a bookish prompt to create a top ten for.
So this week the topic is Ten Books To Read If You Like This Super Popular Book/Author. It means we have to make readalike suggestions in any way we personally prefer. I found this a bit hard because I personally don’t like to compare too much, and I always think about how different some books are from each other. But it is mostly meant to put some lesser known books and authors up for attention so I’ll have a go. Not all of these are lesser known, but I do feel they deserve more attention. I ended up drawing a blank at six.
1 If you like Rick Riordan try Jonathan Stroud
One of the things that I like the most about Rick Riordan are his characters and the humor he uses. These are two things that Jonathan Stroud is also particular good at. Lockwood & co is a good starting point to his work. If you enjoy darker books than Bartimaeus series is a good place to start.
3 If you enjoyed the writing of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern try The Golem and the Djinni by Helene Wecker
Though the topics are very different while I was reading The Golem and the Djinni I felt that the writing reminded me of The Night Circus. Both weaved various story lines together, and it felt magical in places.
5 If you enjoy Stephen King, try Dutch author Thomas Olde Heuvelt
Stephen King is known for his thrillers, but Thomas Olde Heuvelt sure knows how to give you nightmares with his books, like the second half of Hex (which will be out in English next year).
