So let’s try something new. On Twitter, I asked people to reply with an emoji and I would stalk their profile and then recommend them a book. Everyone who knows me knows that my stalking skills are amazing, so we’ll see how well this goes!
I know I’m probably going to recommend some that people have already read – oops!
Cheyenne – @nowherechey
Okay, so I feel like this is cheating a bit because she’s my best friend! But we’ll see.
For Chey, I think she’d enjoy What Would The Spice Girls Do? by Lauren Bravo. Her Twitter shows just how much she’s into feminism, and I also know that she does love a good bop.

You’re a harder one to recommend to! From what I can tell, I think you’re quite into your art and definitely into nature! So I’d suggest you look at Chris Riddell’s Poems to Live Your Life By. It’s a collection of poems that are both classic and modern, all illustrated by Chris Riddell. And there’s a few about nature in there too!
Julie – @StruckByStories
Yes, a YA fan! I’d love for you to read More Than This by Patrick Ness. I was really unsure about this book to begin with, but I fell in love with it!
The PhD Mummy – @mummy_phd
I really feel that you’ll love Matt Haig’s The Truth Pixie. I know this is a book written for kids, but it is one that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults. You seem to talk about mental health quite a lot on Twitter, so I feel like you’d definitely love this as it deals with it in a really nice way.
Stephanie Gillespie – @SteffieReads
You’ve recently bought Truly Madly Guilty, so I’d love for you to try Marian Keyes’ The Mystery of Mercy Close. It’s a bulky book, but you don’t seem to shy away from them! And it’s one of my top reads for this year so far!
Brianna Higdon – @briannahigdon
Ooh, a fellow animal lover! For anyone who loves their pets, I’ll always recommend A Streetcat Named Bob, because it is just the most heartwarming story, and unlike Marley and Me, you’ll only cry happy tears!
Ash – @thebookbakery17
You’re a YA book blogger, which makes this both impossible and easier than the last two. I’m also a lover of YA, but I feel like you will have already read every book I want to recommend, so I’m going to have to try extra hard to find a more unusual one!
I’m praying you haven’t read this one, but I’d love to recommend Outside by Sarah Ann Juckes. It’s one of my top YA reads of this year, and it’s all about a girl who has been held captive and then one day discovers that the outside is actually real. It’s thrilling! So sorry if you’ve already read this!
Jimmy – @itsjimmothy
You’re so supportive to everyone on Twitter! So I feel like sometimes, you may want that support back. That’s why I’d go for Matt Haig’s Notes on a Nervous Planet, which is all about how to deal with the stresses of the modern world! You deserve as much support as you give out to everyone on social media!
Kim – @chimmykins
As soon as I saw that you’re into Joss Whedon and sci-fi, I knew straight away what book to recommend you!
I’m almost certain that you’ll love Charlie Laidlaw’s The Things We Learn When We’re Dead. It explores the idea of dying and heaven being a spaceship! It’s weird, but weirdly brilliant!
Clare Riley – @ClareR73
I’m not too sure what to recommend you, but I feel like you’d really enjoy Matt Haig’s How To Stop Time, which is the perfect mix of sci-fi and real-world problems! It’s all about a man who doesn’t age at the same speed as other humans, and kept me gripped until the end!
Kayla – @HopeFaithnBooks
I feel like I’m cheating a bit again here since I know Kayla!
I feel like you’ve already read this, but if you haven’t, it’s a bonus! The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan is brilliant, and I’m certain you’ll love this. It’s one of those really good heartwarming books that you don’t want to end!
Andie – @croissandie
So you’re into anime and Marvel? The best thing I can think of is Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. It’s about someone who writes her own webcomic which has it’s own fandom! It’s brilliant for people who are a part of any fandom. And the art in it is brilliant!
Emma – @bookinggoodread
According to your bio, you’re into true crime, and I’ll be honest – it’s not really my sort of thing, so this one may seem like a bit of a stretch. But I really think you’d like The Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz. It’s a murder mystery where there is also a book inside a book! Sounds confusing but it’s absolutely brilliant!
And that’s it! I can’t believe how popular this proved to be, so you will all have to keep your eyes out for the next time I do a post like this! I’ve loved doing this and I really hope I haven’t recommended too many books that have already been read!
