Bout of Books Read-a-Thon Challenge: If You Like This, Try This

Bout of Books

Day 4 of the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon is almost a wrap, and to see it out, another challenge. Tonight we're having a go at If You Like This, Try This, hosted once more by Bout of Books.

The rules:

Since we all love recommending books, here's your chance to share the love.
Example: If you like paranormal romance with bloodthirsty vikings, try Shelly Laurenston's Call of Crows series.
Make sure you use the hashtag #boutofbooks on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, so we can see your recs.

Doesn't sound too hard now, does it? I've chosen five television shows (well, four and one TV movie genre, really) and have recommended a book you might like if you enjoy that show. So here goes...

If You Like This, Try This

If you like The Walking Dead, try reading Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick

If you like Spartacus, try reading Red Rising by Pierce Brown

If you like Firefly, try reading The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

If you like cheesy, lovely Christmas TV movies, try reading My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

If you like Supernatural, try reading Demon Road by Derek Landy

I hope you enjoy these recommendations!

I didn't get as much reading done today as I'd hoped, but I finished another book so that's definitely something. Only 3 days left! Here's hoping I get another 6 books read!


  1. I guess this explains why I didn't like Red Rising that much :) I might try Demon Road! :)

  2. Supernatural has been one of my favourite series for years. I may take a look Demon Road. Thank you for the recommendation.

    Happy readings! ;)

  3. Thanks so much! Firefly was my life for years, so I'm all over The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet. :D
