Find Your Next Read: The Sun is Also a Star Read-A-Likes

Welcome to my old feature brought back as I try to establish a routine for my blog. One Friday a month I will be featuring a list of read-a-likes for a specific book, or a list of great reads for a specific genre. I do a lot of book recommendations for my job and for class so I figured it was time I share them with you. Happy Reading!

For those that want another young adult romance novel that takes place in a single day…

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

You don’t want to receive a call from Death-Cast because that means you’re going to die sometime in the next 24 hours. Mateo and Rufus received that call on the same day. They start as strangers that meet through the app Last Friend and become so much more. Read this book to see how they spend their last day.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

What she thought was the worst thing, may turn out to be the best thing. Hadley misses her flight to London for her father’s second wedding, but then she meets the perfect boy. Oliver is British and is sitting in her row on the plane. They have a very long plan ride to get to know each other, but life will soon tear them apart.

Love & Other Train Wrecks by Leah Konen

"One train ride. Two Strangers." Noah is a hopeless romantic and Amy doesn’t believe in true love. When their train breaks down due to a snowstorm, they end up on a quest to arrive at their destinations on time, but get much more than they bargained for.

If you want even more star-crossed love stories from a variety of genres, then try…

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (Historical Fiction)

Two completely different teens come together on their bus ride to school. Eleanor and Park share a connection through music and comics. What starts as a budding friendship turns into much more. Eleanor and Park is set in the 1980s.

The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski (Fantasy)

Kestrel is the general’s daughter of a vast empire who wants to control her own fate. Arin is a slave with secrets of his own. They aren’t meant to fall in love, but they do. The Winner’s Curse is filled with political intrigue, romance, and war strategies.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver (Dystopian)

In an alternate United States love has been deemed a dangerous disease, and once you turn 18 you have to get the Cure. Lena thought the Cure would make life perfect, and then she meets Alex. In a world where love is forbidden, will they take the chance on love?

Another well-written novel from the same author…

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

  1. This is a great feature. I actually still need to read The Sun is Also a Star. It's on my TBR, along with several of the other titles you're recommending. I'm especially looking forward to Silvera's book.

    1. They Both Die at the End was one of my favorite reads of last year!!!!! I can't recommend it enough.

  2. This is a great list! I've only read Everything, Everything but a lot of these are on my TBR already
