Thoughts/Notes: Awesome start so far if I do say so myself! Since I didn't set myself a TBR, it is hard to tell the amount of progress I have made but with my goal of reading 5 books this week... I think I'm doing pretty good! Only two more to go and since the YearAThon was a total bust I'm really hoping that this one will end up being a whole lot better! I'm proud that I went strong the first day because I'm not 100% sure if the rest of the week is going to be looking too good reading wise. 

Today's Challenge: If You Like X, Try Y

This challenge is recommending similar books/authors to people! I decided I would give it a shot, but I'm not sure if I am going to be doing the rest of the week's challenges!

If you like...                                                                      Try...
Sarah Dessen                                                                    Jenny Han

This recommendation works anyway! If you like Jenny Han, try Sarah Dessen! They both write summery contemporaries and have similar writing styles.

If you like...                                                                        Try...
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins/                            Wither by Divergent by Veronica Roth                                               Lauren                                                                                                 DeStefano All three of these novels are dystopian, and I feel like if you like one, you'll like the other!

So that was me taking a shot at if you like x, try y! If you did this post, please leave it in the comments! I would love to see your recommendations.                                                                                                                                       


  1. Glad to come across someone who has read similar page numbers. Will you up your goal, since you did so great on your first day? I upped mine, from 8 to 12. :)

    1. I'm considering upping my goal, but I'm not sure about how the rest of the week is going to unfold school wise so I'm keeping my goal 5 until I reach it :)
