Like This? Try That! 90s Movie Edition

For this edition of Like This? Try That!, we’re going to talk about books you might enjoy if you liked certain movies. Today I’m focusing on movies that were released in the late nineties, so if you love movies from that time these recommendations are for you! As far as genre goes, we’re looking at a range from romantic comedy/drama to science fiction and crime thriller. They also run the gamut from older releases to new and include an independently published title. With plenty of variety here, hopefully there will be something you like!

Like this? Try that! Movie Edition

For this edition of Like This? Try That!, we’re going to talk about books you might enjoy if you liked certain movies.

Each of these three recommendations is from a different genre, so I hope there’s something you’ll like from this list!

I included a range from backlist books to a new release, and each of the three recommendations is in an entirely different genre than the others. Hopefully that means you’ll find something you like!

Let’s just jump in, shall we?
