When they've read everything else...
c.j.'s selections ten ten ten
|one||If they've read Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, buy them |
Serpentine by Cindy Pon
It's also a lush fantasy world with a kickass heroine, a dark destiny, and a double life, plus it's rich with details from Chinese mythology.
If they've read Truthwitch by Susan Dennard, buy them
The Assassin's Blade by Cassandra Rose Clarke
It's full of assassins, magic, pirates, and a badass heroine, in a Middle Eastern inspired country. It'll feed their craving while they wait for Windwitch!
|three||If they've read The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, buy them |
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova
Celtic magic, meet Bruja magic. Both books feature worlds overlapping our own, legend and lore, and endearingly prickly girls who don't take adventure sitting down.
If they've read The Diviners by Libba Bray, buy them
Iron Cast by Destiny Soria
It's another 1920s glitzy magical adventure but a little more bitesized, with a diverse cast, atmospheric magic, and murder mystery thrown in.
|five||If they've read Cinder by Marissa Meyer, buy them |
Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell
Sci-fi Cinderella, meet steampunk Cinderella. A beautiful retelling with an Ella Enchanted flair and a surprising happy ending.
|six||If they've read Red Rising by Pierce Brown, buy them |
The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid
It's also vicious Romanesque far-future science fiction with plenty of mayhem and political intrigue, but with a badass female lead and a standalone plot.
|seven||If they've read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, buy them |
The Memory Book by Lara Avery
It's similarly poignant and tragic, with the focus on a young girl who takes her memory-stealing illness as a chance to live the life she's always dreamt.
|eight||If they've read City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, buy them |
Fate of Flames by Sarah Raughley
It's also an urban fantasy with geek vibes and a kickass monster-fighting team, but the baddies in this one are shadowy mega-monsters rather than demons and vamps.
|nine||If they've read Paper Towns by John Green, buy them |
You Were Here by Cori McCarthy
It also deals with love, loss, friendship, and mayhem, but it's told in multiple formats (graphic novel, word art poetry, and prose) and perspectives.
|ten||If they've read A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, buy them |
Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho
It's got the same British alternate universe vibes and dagger wit, but with an ethnically diverse cast, fairy magic, and endearingly grouchy sorcerers.
