--Like This, Try This--
1. You must recommend a book based on another book, movie, tv show, etc similar to this: “If you liked _____, you should try _____ because _____.”

2. Any genre and reading level is fine and you may use any set-up you like, so long as you’re recommending a book based on something else and explaining why.

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Both  re-tellings of Beauty and the Beast so each one has a romance that develops over time and has characters. Each has characters that change for the better because of their love for the other person.

How is your read-a-thon going?
Happy reading
