A fun way to recommend books and poetry to people.

What are 'if you like, you will love' book recommendations? Well basically, they're book recommendations where it tells you that if you liked one book, you're sure to like this other book. Let's give it a go!

1. If you liked Wonder by R. J. Palacio, you will love Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper

Okay, so both of these books are really popular, but Wonder more than Out of My Mind, although I think the latter is better. Out of My Mind is an amazing novel that will probably make you cry. In it, a girl named Melody has cerebral palsy, a disease that makes her unable to walk or talk, but if she could, the whole world would know just how smart she was. Thought to be stupid by her classmates, she longs for a day when she can just speak.

2. If you liked Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier, you will love Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol

You may have read Ghosts, but have you heard of Anya's Ghost? Let me give you a brief idea of the story: Anya is an immigrant from Russia, who doesn't fit and doesn't like it. She has a crush on a boy, but he doesn't really like her. Teenage drama, right? Well, it's teenage drama until she falls into a well. It's teenage drama until she meets the ghost of a long deceased woman. It's teenage drama until the ghost finds her way back up to the surface and follows Anya around. So no, it's not teenage drama. Not even close. Vera Brosgol also immigrated to the United States from Russia when she was young. You may have also heard of her book Be Prepared.

3. If you liked Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling, you will love Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger

Almost everyone knows the story of Harry Potter, the boy who found out he was a wizard, but just as good and probably less well known is Keeper of the Lost Cities, a book following Sophie, a telepathic human with no clue how she obtained her powers. That is, until a mysterious boy name Fitz visits her to tell her that she's not human at all: she's an elf. She leaves the world she knows to train herself when she realizes that she's in danger, but not even the elves understand who she really is, and neither do their enemies. Sure, this was a change in Sophie's life, but was it for better or for worse?
