MY Top 5 Book & Series RECOMMENDATIONS for The Tinker and The Fold fans (Foldies)
By Evan Gordon
#5. The Maze Runner series by James Dashner:
This trilogy follows teenager Thomas who wakes up in a maze one day with no memory other than that of his first name. Consisting of three books (The Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials, and The Death Cure), two prequels (The Kill Order and The Fever Code), and two movies, The Maze Runner is a great science fiction series to start.
#4. The Giver by Lois Lowry:
If you haven’t read The Giver, it explores some of the same ideas as The Tinker, such as everyone being equal and having the same as everyone else. However, the society in this novel takes it a little too far, banning everything that separates one person from another, including color, music, and even having your own children.
#3. The Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore:
This book series (I Am Number Four, The Power of Six, The Rise of Nine, The Fall of Five, The Revenge of Seven, The Fate of Ten, and United as One) is about a group of aliens hiding out on Earth as they slowly develop special abilities beyond our wildest imagination.
#2. The Reckoners by Brandon Sanderson:
Imagine that one day a new star appeared in the sky. But not just an everyday normal star, this star grants incredible powers to people on Earth at random, but with a catch. Those who are endowed become greedy, evil, and self-serving, sending the world into chaos. With three books (Steelheart, Firefight, and Calamity), this book falls right into many of the same categories as The Tinker and The Fold.
#1. The Fifth Wave Trilogy by Rick Yancey: The Fifth Wave Trilogy (The Fifth Wave, The Infinite Sea, and The Last Star) is number 1 on this list because it is literally the exact opposite of The Tinker and The Fold. In the Fifth Wave, teen girl Cassie does everything that she can to survive the oncoming waves of natural disasters and disease sent by The Others (The exact opposite of The Aaptuuans).
