First day of Bout of Books 10 and first challenge! This is the "If You Like X, Try Y" challenge and is hosted at The Book Barbies blog. It is as follows:
All you have to do is give one or more recommendations based on the formula "If you like ____, try ___."
The specifics are entirely up to you. You can give a recommendation based on an entire genre, an author, a title, a random subject, whatever!
So my picks are these:
If you like major plot twists, try Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn.
If you like post-apocaliptic novels, try The Road, by Cormac McCarthy.
If you like science-fiction, try Oryx and Crake, by Margaret Atwood.
If you like dark and mysterious characters, try The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde.
If you like fairy-tale retellings, try Beauty, by Robin McKinley.
