NoveList

Custom Reading Recommendations

Sometimes you know what you want to read - everyone is reading it and talking about it, or it’s your book club assignment, or it’s the sequel of the last book you loved. But sometimes you want to look around and be surprised by something new.

We have a service to help you fill your to-read list: NoveList, an interactive database integrated into our library catalog that specializes in readers’ advisory. NoveList employs 80 full-time librarians who put their own personal knowledge into book recommendations.

Sometimes, the thrill of the chase - the act of finding a book you didn’t even know existed - is the best part. We hope you’ll enjoy using this rich new resource.

So how do you use it?

Search for a book in our catalog - let’s use Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

In the list right below the book cover, locate and click on the word Related.

Here you will find a plethora of information, starting with a list of other books in the series (if the book you are looking up is in a series), all in series order - no more guessing which one to read next! Click on a title to locate it in our catalog so you can check it out or place a hold request.

Click on a book cover, author name, or series title to learn what makes them so similar to the book you're looking up - you can use the arrows to navigate through each recommendation. If something piques your interest, click on the title, author name, or the blue "Find it" button to locate it in the catalog.

Scroll a bit more to find the Story Elements secton, including Appeal terms, Character traits, Genre, and Themes. These search terms help readers cut across genres. Romances can be just as suspenseful as thrillers; fantasy titles can be just as beautifully written as literary fiction. You may love a mystery, but not because it is a mystery; you love it because of its atmosphere and converging plot lines. Select as many of these terms as you like, and NoveList will generate recommendations that feature all of your chosen elements.
