You just finished a book that you absolutely LOVED. But now, it has left you in one of those dreaded book hangovers. If you’re looking for a book to read that’s similar to a title that you adored or an author you admire, NoveList, a database powered by Ebsco is here to help! With your library card, you can have access to read-alikes for authors, titles, and even genre suggestions. You can access Novelist from the Library’s website www.livingstonlibrary.org, or by clicking here.

Another great way to get book recommendations is through GoodReads. Not only is Goodreads an awesome app and website for connecting with other readers and keeping track of your yearly reading goal, but Goodreads also gives you book recommendations based on books that you have read, books that you have enjoyed, and various topics. GoodReads is also free to use. You can visit GoodReads, here.
If you’re looking for a book, but aren’t exactly sure what you’re looking for, fear not! You can view librarian curated suggestions and book lists right here on this blog, by either navigating to the right side of the page and clicking on “Book Lists,” or by clicking here. We also have a rotating selection of book suggestions located on the ends of the shelving in the fiction section and themed book displays located near the new adult seating area. Also, make sure to follow our Instagram @LivingstonLibrary for special Livi Lit videos where you can see the Livingston Public Library librarians talk about what they’re reading.
