Who Else Writes Like?
Published on 12th November 2020
You've found that perfect author but read all their books and are waiting patiently for the next one to come out. There may not even be a next one.
The wait is just too long...
Why not try someone that writes like him/her?
Who else writes like? is simple and easy to use, just type in the author and search.
Who else writes like? is a website (and book) that helps you find a similar author to the one you love. It's a handy tool for a wide variety of people.
We all miss browsing the shelves of our libraries seeking out that book that is like the one we devoured the night before. Nothing beats a good page turner, and this is thanks to the amazing author who has written it, now you can look for a similar author.
Who else writes like? also gives the genre and this can be useful considering some authors write under different pseudonyms. It also gives you the option to select from award winning authors, authors of audio/eBook titles, and titles that are suitable for young adults and children.
You can refine your search by adding the country, character, series, or setting of a book.
Are you searching for Irish authors such as the legendary Roddy Doyle, and looking for a bit of good Irish craic?
Check out Dermot Bolger, Patrick McCabe, or Joseph O’Connor to name but a few…or maybe crime intrigues you?
American authors such as C.J. Box can be similarly compared to Harlan Coben, James Lee Burke, Dana Stabenow, and the list goes on.
The website also has other features including lists of authors who have received awards from the Booker Prize to the Pulitzer.
It features a list of useful books, websites, and an editor’s choice section. My favourite section is the News and Updates which includes articles on the latest trends in the book world.
You can also check out another website called Who’s Next? this is a guide to Children’s authors.
