Liza Palmer Party: The Favors (Giveaway)

Every party has to end, and I'm sad to see this celebration of Girl Before a Mirror come to close. For this final day, Cassie's talking about the sweet treat we're serving at our party. And I figured that that I ought to be a good hostess, so I won't send you home empty-handed... I've prepared the favors! Once you read Girl Before a Mirror, chances are you'll be craving more. So, here are fifteen books I recommend after you're done:
If you liked the WRITING, try...
If you like the writing style, your next step is to read more books from Liza herself! DUH. She's got a great backlist, which I've been slowly working my way through. I don't want to devour them all and have nothing left! Here are the three I've read so far - all of which I thoroughly enjoyed and definitely recommend.

Nowhere but Home by Liza Palmer (Review)

If you liked FAMILY dynamics, try...
Family plays a huge role in every Liza Palmer book I've read so far, and the relationship between siblings Anna and Ferdie was one of my favorite storylines in Girl Before a Mirror. You'll find an interesting sibling relationship Garden Spells and unforgettable family dynamics overall in Saving Francesca

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen (Review)
Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta (Review)

If you liked the FRIENDSHIP, try...
Anna has a small group of close friends in Girl Before a Mirror, but I think I loved the friendship that develops between her and Sasha even more! The friendship in Open Road Summer was one of my favorite elements of that book, and the "work friendship" in Attachments is what made it a favorite read.

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord (Review)
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (Review)

If you liked the ROMANCE, try...
You know I can't resist a good love story! I loved the romance in Girl Before a Mirror, and I won't soon forget this couple. Here are three "I never saw you coming" romances, but each depicts that in completely different ways. You'll definitely swoon, but you might cry a little, too. Don't say I didn't warn you!

The First Husband by Laura Dave (Review)
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes (Review)

If you liked the PERSONAL GROWTH, try...
My absolute favorite part of Girl Before a Mirror was watching Anna come into her own. Seeing her bring ideas to life and take charge of her story was amazing! The heroines in all three of these books have a lot to learn about life, love and themselves. It's probably why they're three of my all-time favorite books...

The Opposite of Love by Julie Buxbaum
Just One Day by Gayle Forman (Review)
After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid (Review)

If you liked the WAR backstory, try...
Although it's a small element of Girl Before a Mirror, one character's story made me wish he had his own book. There's a lot of pain and heartbreak there, and it reminded me of these two books. I'll Meet You There and Something Like Normal depict the aftermath of war on a solider in an unforgettable way.

I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
Something Like Normal by Trish Doller

  7. I think this whole thing was just the niftiest idea! I wish I had a local book club to do something like this with. I don't know too many people that enjoy reading like I do (which is probably why I follow a lot of reading blogs). My favorite part, however, would probably have to be the music. So lovely. I'd really love to read this book! Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

  8. My favorite part of the party was the entire thing. I love how food, music, clothes, and so much more, was shared with readers about the book. It really makes a great way to connect the readers with the book and also give them a better idea of what influenced the book.

  9. Basically, this guide for books to read post-Girl Before a Mirror is phenomenal, Hannah! I love that you've highlighted different aspects or characteristics of the story, and chosen your suggestions from there. Have read quite a few on here (and enjoyed them), and I will definitely keep the others in mind for when I'm done with Girl Before a Mirror. Loved the Liza Palmer Party!
