Recommend A... meme

…Author Similar to an Author You Love

Recommend A… is a SUPER meme hosted by Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit that lets us get a little random, and a little off the radar. I LOVE IT.

I think the hardest part of choosing this week’s recommendation is picking just one author to start with! After much thought and back and forth, I’m going with Morgan Matson. I know, I know. She’s only written two books, but they were both outstanding. Emotional, well-written, sometimes fun, sometimes sad, always heartfelt. I think that if you love Morgan’s books, you’d also totally love…

Jenny Han

Specifically, her Summer series. The story of Belly and the Fischer boys is emo, broody, sweet, sad, and AWESOME. Plus it’s got the bonus of a beach town, a triangle that isn’t irritating at all, and a real sense of…reality, I guess. There are lots of things in the Summer series that ring true–not everything, but lots of things. The tone of Jenny Han’s books would be perfect for fan of Morgan Matson!

    I haven’t read either of these authors although I have seen Han’s books mentioned. Must check them out.

    I’ve heard fantastic things about Jenny Han’s books – why I haven’t read any of them, I don’t know! – so I’m guessing Morgan Matson must be fantastic too! I’ll have to keep an eye out for her books!

    Two amazing authors = WIN. I loved Morgan’s first book, and Jenny’s first book in the Summer series, so I completely agree.

Tell me what's up!
