Since the Netflix series came out, a lot of our teens have been talking about 13 Reasons Why. I created a bookmark and accompanying display of read-alikes. It’s only been up a few days and I’ve already had to restock it! If you’d like to use this bookmark at your library, click here to download the pdf file.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Read-Alikes

If you’re anything like me, you’ve binge-watched Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt at least five times since its debut on Netflix. My Unbreakableaddiction is seriously becoming a problem, it’s even spurred several bouts of Hulkamania. I need more! If you also need more Unbreakablegoodness in your life, step away from the TV, grab some pinot noir, and check out one of these books:

Dawn and the Surfer Ghost by Ann M. Martin – This book helped Kimmy survive the bunker and put Xanthippe in her place, so you know it’s good. C’mon there is a surfer ghost, what more could you ask for?!

Bossypants by Tina Fey – Fey’s signature humor is what makesUnbreakable so fantastic, so her book is a must-read for fans.

The Nanny Diaries by Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus – If you enjoy watching watching Kimmy’s experiences working for the uber-rich Vorhees clan, you’ll love this humorous look at Park Aveune nannyhood.

Finding Me by Michelle Knight – If the plight of the Mole Women has you interested in real-life kidnapping survivors, pick up Michelle Knight’s memoir. It’s a heartbreaking but inspiring tale of courage in the face of unimaginable circumstances.

Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham – Do you crack up watching Titus’s attempts to become a famous actor? Then you might like this charming novel about a young woman also trying to find acting success in New York.
