Bout of Books 11: Day Three Update and Day Four Challenge!

Bout of Books

Day Three Update: I was really pleased with the amount I was able to read today. I read another 45 pages of Circle of Spies which brought me over the one hundred page mark. And I was also able to read two short stories that were about 25 pages each, they were Fairy Slippers by Amber Stokes (Which I absolutely loved!) and The Foreboding by Travis Thrasher.
By the end of the day on Thursday I'm hoping to reach the halfway point of Circle Of Spies, and read a novella called Necessary Proof by Camy Tang.

"You must recommend a book based on another book, movie, tv show, etc similar to this: “If you liked _____, you should try _____ because _____.”

If you liked this...
Anomaly by Krista McGee 

You should try this...
Remnants: Season of Wonder by Lisa T. Bergren

Because... These are both amazing YA dystopian novels! They both have strong spunky female main characters. And a delightful cast of secondary characters. While the dystopian world building is different in each, the plot lines are similar in that in both there are teens that were created to help save the world. 
There is also a huge foundation of faith and hope which both of these books are built on, which is something a number of dystopians don't really have.
