With all the great books out there, choosing one you want to read can sometimes feel overwhelming. If you're an avid reader who devours one book after another, you might want to read so many books that you can't decide which one to actually start. If you're not a big reader but have to choose something for a class, you might feel as if there isn't a book out there that could possibly interest you.
Whether you fall into one of these groups or not, there are a lot of great options to help you find the right book. Keep reading and start exploring!
This site answers that question with a list of books based on titles you enter. Just type in the name of a book or author you really love and you'll be presented with books like it. If you need recommendations in a hurry, this is the site for you.
On this site, you type in the name of an author you like and a map is generated of similar authors. Once your author map appears, you can keep clicking on author's names to generate new maps. This site is great because it's fast and you get a lot of recommendations.
Goodreads is a social networking site for readers where you can track the books you read and want to read. It's also a great resource for finding new books you might be interested in thanks to its user-generated lists. Here you'll find lists based on just about any topic you can imagine. You can find lists for Jane Austen adaptations or books that should be turned into movies. For those of you with eccentric taste looking for something really specific, here are some books about old people, books with questions as titles, and books set in Colorado. Since all of these lists are put together by random people, their quality isn't guaranteed. Still, they can be a quick, fun way to find books that look interesting.
This site offers book lists for adults, children, and teens based on specific categories. The teen list includes suggestions for romance, fantasy, horror, and more. These lists were put together by librarians, so you can be sure you're getting recommendations from people who truly know and love books.
In case you didn't know, we offer our own book recommendations here at LC. We took the most popular books in the library and put together lists of similar titles. If you like The Fault in Our Stars, Divergent, or Catcher in the Rye, we've got you covered. Check out the list and let us know if there are other recommendations you'd like to see.
