Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books To Read If you like ________ .

  1. Nice choices! I really want to read All the Bright Places! I heard it’s like Eleanor and Park 🙂 My sister just bought Spectacular Now and I’m happy to read it! Is it a tear jerker too? 🙂

    1. You should, it really was a great read, very moving just like Eleanor & Park was, yes 🙂
      I didn’t cry while reading The spectacular now, but it’s an important story. We follow the character through its journey, and he has some bad times and struggles, it can move some people a lot, I think. What I loved the most about this book, is that it’s very realistic 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy it, I can’t wait to hear your thoughts about it! 🙂
      Thank you so much for your comment! ❤


  2. Marie! These are some wonderful picks, I can definitely see them being similar to John Green’s work! As Simple As Snow reminds me of Paper Towns, in terms of the ‘girl that loves mysteries’! Emmy And Oliver and Let’s Get Lost are on my TBR also!
    Great post! xoxo 💋

  3. Love this post, YA is so much more than John Green no matter what the bookstores or media tries to have you believe. I love how many female authors you chose to showcase as well. I have only read ATBP but I love Jennifer Niven so much, she’s the cutest!
