Chapter 50 - Try This (Part 2)

I didn't realize how popular my Try This post was going to be or I would have put more recommendations out there. We are asked for recommendations every single day at Bookends so it is hard not to have a lot of them. This time I am only focusing on genres for my read-alike recommendations. So, here are some more suggestions for authors you might consider.

If you like the psychological thrillers of Mary Kubica try Lisa Jewell, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, and Liv Constantine.

If you like the folksy, downhome feeling of Jan Karon, try Fannie Flagg, Ann B. Ross,

and Charlene Ann Baumbich.

If you like the action of Nelson DeMille, consider WEB Griffin, Daniel Silva, and Michael Connelly.

If you like the romance of Debbie Macomber try Robyn Carr, Sheryl Woods, and Rae Ann Thayne.

If you like the novelized accounts of real people by Melanie Benjamin, try Marie Benedict, Paula McLain, and Meg Waite Clayton.

If you like Southern writers like Dorothea Benton Frank try Mary Alice Monroe, Karen White, Patti Callahan Henry, Mary Kay Andrews, or Wendy Wax.

If you like readable history like Bill O'Reilly try Brian Kilmeade, Erik Larson, and Laura Hillenbrand.

Do you have any favorite read-alikes? Let me know!
