Another “pick your own ending” topic today where we could select a TV show/movie/comic/etc. to prompt book choices.
Well, if you’re like me, you loved Roswell and wanted to love the new CW show Star-Crossed…but didn’t.
Sure, it’s got alien/human forbidden love, and teen angst, and Julie Taylor, and actually some interesting messages to share on acceptance and race and sexuality.
But it’s also got that one guy from The Nine Lives of Chloe King and a version of Aimee Teegarden that is soooo not Julie Taylor. So, yeah. Boo.
To make up for it, here are some books I think you’ll love that are delightfully alien!
Bonus shoutout to A Wrinkle in Time, which I adore but always think of as more middle-grade. And okay, I know the Peterfreund book was a bit of a stretch, but I heard it called “Jane Austen in space” once so it stuck.
PS: Bonus friendship points to any of you who read the Roswell books in addition to the TV show. I may or may not still have my copies…
