Kindred Reads {3}

3 weeks ago I started posting these book recommendations posts, which I'm hoping to keep posting as a weekly theme post for my blog! This is something that I personally wish I saw more of; after reading a book I enjoy, I often want to read similar books but they can be hard to discover!
These books contain similar elements, whether it's content, writing style, or other themes found in the stories.

If you like...
Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz
You might want to read...
Remembrance by Michelle Madow
Reincarnated lovers who are given a second chance, need I say more? It's an extremely similar plot, except I found the characters (Liz and Drew in Remembrance, Emma and Brendan in Spellbound) to be complete opposites. Plus, there's a bit more mythology behind the story in Spellbound. But still, similar stories played out in different ways.









Evermore (The Immortals #1) by Alyson Noel

And... just like Spellbound and Remembrance, Evermore is the story of lovers given another chance in a new life. Except, there are some different and exciting twists in Evermore compared to Spellbound and Remembrance (such as the whole Immortals mythology) which make it stand out. Just take one moody girl, one brooding boy, give them a long history (literally) and VOILA! Instant fated lovers YA novel.

I don't mean to take away from these books, since I read all 3 of them and really enjoyed some of them, but it is true that they're similar.






Are there any others you can think of that are similar to these books? Have you read any (or all) of these? What did you think of them?
