Have you read all of John Green’s books and now you’re wondering what to read next?  Here are some suggestions:

If you liked Looking For Alaska: You might want to try other boarding school novels like Paper Covers Rock by Jenny Hubbard (if you’re looking for another guy narrator) and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart (if you’d like to switch to a girl narrator). Another great choice is Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher; like Alaska, it’s about a guy who is piecing together information about a girl he thought he knew.

If you liked An Abundance of Katherines:  Other road trip stories like The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith and Car Trouble by Jeanne DuPrau could be right up your alley.   Much like Katherines, Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler is (as the title suggests) about dealing with a breakup.

If you liked Paper Towns:  Check out some more books about guys falling for and/or getting caught up in the lives of complex, eccentric, mysterious girls.  You might try out The Disenchantments by Nina Lacour, The Amanda Project by Melissa Kantor, and Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King.

If you liked Will Grayson, Will Grayson:  Try some other books told in multiple perspectives, like My Most Excellent Year by Steve Kluger or Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan.   If you’re interested in another LGBT read, Geography Club by Brent Hartinger is a great pick for fans of Will Grayson.
