13 Books to Read After You Finish "13 Reasons Why"

Jay Asher's bestselling novel, 13 REASONS WHY, was recently adapted as a Netflix original series, debuting on March 31st, 2017. After binge-watching the entire series in less than 24 hours, we knew we needed more. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of 13 books to read after you've finished the series. Adding the 10th Anniversary Edition of 13 REASONS WHY by Jay Asher seemed like a natural choice, because it is filled with exclusive new content such as an intro by Jay Asher and some deleted scenes. The rest of our featured titles, however, are very different, although they each feature the same heart-pounding drama and tear-filled emotional scenes. From Adam Silvera we have HISTORY IS ALL YOU LEFT ME, a beautiful and heartbreaking story of grief and love, written in a way that keeps the reader in the dark about what led the characters to this point, much like 13 REASONS WHY. Also featured is GOODBYE DAYS by Jeff Zentner, which follows teenaged Carver, who has inadvertently caused a car accident that killed his three best friends and follows his journey from guilt to acceptance.

Whether you finished the series in one night or have yet to tune in, you're sure to find a great read on our latest bookshelf.
