    After some books for research

    Discussion in 'Research' started by TheSmiler, May 23, 2014.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, however it is research for my books/interesting websites just recommendations that I'm after really.

    Basically I'm new to writing so I'm after some similar books to the ones I'm planning on writing. As the books that I own and write are not really in the same category. Anyway the book types I'm after;

    Girl going through high school (interesting events that happen would be great).

    This is just going to be a short introduction story, to one of my major series (potentially).

    Post Apocalyptic books; needs emphasis on describing surroundings etc.
    After like a Fallout 3/New Vegas setting if you have played any of them games.

    Book similar to the film Crazies.
    This is just for a book about a town getting infected/people surviving.

    I will be purchasing the ones that sound like they are on the money, so if any of you have done one of these books and they are on Amazon I'll be grabbing it.

    Stargirl: Homeschool girl goes to public highschool, culture shock mixed with romance ensues


    Maze runner trilogy book 2, Scorch trials: After escaping their prison the group of teens has to make their way across a ruined planet before they too are infected with the deadly virus

    Kill Order: This is the stand alone prequel to the maze runner trilogy.

    If none of these sound like what you are looking for I'd recommend checking out the genre tags on Goodreads
