Loved That? Read This! [1]

Loved That, Read This is a brand new book meme on Fridays created by Nicole at Boundless Bookaholic. Learn more about it here and check back every week for more book recommendations!


If you loved All the Bright Places, then read My Heart and Other Black Holes.

Both of these books feature spot-on mental health representations and show the individualized nature of a mental illness like depression. They also both feature pairs of teens who meet through their shared desire to commit suicide, and will probably make you cry more than once! You’ll need tissues for both of these books!



If you loved Winger, then read Openly Straight.

Both of these books feature LGBTQPIA+ characters and take place at boys’ boarding schools. If you loved the poignant honesty and raw storytelling in Winger, then you’ll love Koenigsberg’s Openly Straight. Both stories do a great job at showing the difficulties of figuring out who you are and what you want when you’re a teen.



If you loved The Fault in Our Stars, then read Side Effects May Vary.

If you loved John Green’s book about teens dying with cancer, then you need to read Julie Murphy’s debut novel about a boy in love with a girl who has cancer-and might have a chance to live. Murphy’s book has a lot more grit than Green’s novel but features all the humor and heart.

What do you think of my recommendations? Do you have any other recommendations for the books I picked? Let me know in the comments!
