If you enjoyed Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kauffman which is a sci-novel set in the future with rebel ships (and it sounds super cool) then I highly recommend Warcross by Marie Lu! It’s another book set in the future with games and virtual reality and a (nerdy) awesome cast of characters. The sequel is coming out sometime this year so definitely pick it up.
The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed sounds very similar to Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu, neither of which I have read yet but these girl power books are on my radar. I do have a copy of Moxie and they sound so epic and empowering and I’m here for it. I think there more or less about girls in highschool sick of people hating on women so start a sort of campaign so obviously awesome and very important books to read.

If you liked Geekerella by Ashley Poston then you absolutely must read Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. I’ve actually read both of these and really loved them both but Eliza is hands down in my top five favourite books of ever because I loved (and related to) it so much. It’s such an amazing book and YOU JUST HAVE TO READ IT! Please do yourself a favour.

So if you’ve seen Tomorrowland then I think you’d really enjoy the story of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Now I haven’t actually read this classic and I hope to see but I do adore the movie with my entire heart. I recommend this because of the different world you can travel to, which is why I love both of these. Another good one you may like is Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carol which may be more similar but I absolutely love The Secret Garden so definitely give these a try.

So if you enjoyed The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty then I very much urge to read Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertali. Both of these are hilarious and very comical. Although they’re about different age groups they have the “anonymous” life in common. Simon is a beautiful coming of age story about a gay teen who isn’t out yet and is anonymously emailing a boy at his school. The movie that just came out – Love, Simon – is getting loads of buzz and I’m hyped for it so there’s yet another reason to read it if you haven’t picked up this heartwarming book yet!

Simon Vs The Homosapiens Agenda
If you loved How To Train Your Dragon then you’ll have the best time with the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. These two both have the chosen one trope and mythology, humour and action and both honestly so much fun. They’re middle grade but anyone can enjoy. How To Train Your Dragon also is a book adaptation so you may want to look into that too.

So if you’ve watched Sherlock then you definitely should read The Famous Five series by Enid Blyton. They’re both about crime solving and The Famous Five were the books that really got me into reading. They’re quick and really entertaining. I had such a blast and you won’t get bored because they are a lot of them so definitely give them a go!
The Famous FIve
If you really enjoyed Gotham then just go and read Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, or rather all of her books but this one in particular is full of crime and mystery and JUST GO AND READ THE SHADOWHUNTER CHRONICLES OKAY! They’re so good and it’s basically my weakness. They’re both in a city with strange disappearances and you’ll be on the edge of your seat. Just really good stuff…. GO READ IT!!!!!
If you really enjoyed Sense8 then you’re going to love The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater which is one of my recent all time favourites and I adore it to pieces. It’s a strange magical realism and I’m going to struggle trying to give you a summary. The reason I think they’re similar is the aspect of almost inner “psychic” connections with more than one character. Honestly the entire series is amazing and I highly recommend!
The Raven Boys
I hoped you liked all of these recommendations and that they were somewhat useful and maybe you find your next favourite!
