This is a common phrase/question that people employ when asking us booksellers for suggestions for their friends and family. "Well, he/she loved so-and-so...what else is like that" In fact, that is very helpful when trying to recommend books, knowing other books & authors that they like.

But sometimes one can get stuck in a rut and cannot come up with a wide selection of suggestions. Let's help each other find new books based on books we already enjoy. Adult, young adult, whatever you like!

Here are some Specific Titles that might prompt some suggestions:

My name is Meghan Chase.
I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who’s sworn to stand por my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I’m not sure anyone can survive it.
This time, there will be no turning back.
The third book in the Iron Fey series provides the same non-stop action as its predecessors. The only thing is, this time around, the constant conflict...

The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World por A.J. Jacobs
Just for the heck of it, one dia A.J. Jacobs decided to read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica, all thirty-two volumes. Surprisingly his details about his adventure is quite amusing and he does share some very interesting tidbits from the EB. Or as Jon Stewart says: "The Know-It-All is a hilarious book and quite impressive achievement. I've always said, why doesn't someone put out a less complete version of the encyclopedia? Well done, A.J."

The título says it all. However, if you are a Twilight hater or lover with a good sense of humor, you should be able to enjoy this. ;-) Ratings and comments would be lovely!

Luis Fuentes has always been sheltered from the gang violence that nearly destroyed his brothers’ lives. But that didn’t stop him from taking risks — whether he’s scaling a mountain in the Rockies or dreaming of a future as an astronaut, Luis can’t stop looking for the seguinte thrill. Nikki Cruz lives her life por three rules — boys lie to get their way, don’t trust a boy who says “I amor you,” and never encontro, data a boy from the south side of Fairfield. Her parents may be from Mexico, but as a doctor’s daughter, she has mais in common with her north-side neighbors than the Latino...

Mmkay, this is a really powerful-but really long- quote and I really hope you take just a few minutos out of whatever you're doing and read it.

"I was telling you about evil, now that I know what it is. It's what makes a man get drunk and press a red hot poker on his child's back. It's what makes men have to queue for hours at the dock gates for a chance of a job when there are only a dozen jobs for a hundred men, so they fight each other in order to get them, and the foreman laugh and egg them on. It's what takes an old couple who've got nothing left but each other and splits them up to go...

I explained in my anterior linkthe meaning of the this phrase, but here is a quick recap: advance readers' copies are sent pre-published books por publishers in hopes that a particularly enthusiastic recipient will personally promote the work to his or her customers, and thus increase sales exponentially.

Titles mentioned in my first artigo included:
- The Hunger Games por Suzanne Collins
- Half-Assed por Jeanette Fulda
- The Rhino with Glue-on Shoes por Lucy Spelman
- Cheer! por Kate Torgovnick

Here are mais books that I have read in galley form (another phrase for advance reader copy) and hope that...

In A Sunburned Country, A Walk in the Woods and I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away por link
While I have only discovered Bill Bryson's works within the past year, I have whole-heartedly fallen in amor with his writings. Why? Because they are the freaking funniest things I have ever read. He delights in depicting the strange and the awkward, which usually turns out to be him. This "God Dad! [teenage eyes rolling in disdain, can't believing that they are related]" theme runs throughout his books, adding *pop* and *crackle* to his extremely informative...

My Life in France por Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme
You must know Julia Child por name if not por reputation. The cook of all cooks. The woman who revolutionized American household kitchens; she entered the início por TV and left us groaning, having just gorged on prodigious French food. But that really isn't her, Julia Child declares, in her book. My Life in France is an amazing, humanizing potrait of Julia Child as we peek into her life before fame and (can you belive it?) her life before she could cook (she claims that she was horrible in the cozinha before moving to France and attended cooking...
