If You Like The Others… Read House of Comarré

If You Like The Others… Read House of Comarré Last year when Written in Red came out, it seemed to pop up everywhere for me.

If You Like The Hollows… Read Cassie Palmer & Dorina Basarb

If You Like The Hollows… Read Cassie Palmer & Dorina Basarb Okay this maybe cheating since I am recommending two series instead of one, but in my defense both series are by Karen Chance, are set in the same world, take place simultaneously, and have characters who crossover in both series. So really I am recommending the body of work of one author. My favorite characteristic of Kim Harrison’s The Hollow series is not only the strong female protagonist, but also...
