I’m a very picky reader so when someone asks for a book recommendation, I really hope that he/she either is a fan of at least one of my favorite authors, is interested in topics that I like to read about, or is open to checking out new authors. However, this isn’t always the case.
When I don’t know what to recommend, I visit Novelist. Once I’m there, I simply enter an author’s name, click on Author Read-alikes or Recommended Reads, and then I’m presented with many possible books.
If you want to check out Novelist, you can access it at home or in the library from our Electronic Database page.
Besides recommendations for all ages, Novelist also gives detailed information about authors and works, book club discussion guides and questions, and curriculum outlines for teachers.
