Find a great book

Find a Great Book!

Finding your next great read can be a challenge! We have included a few resources that we love, and if you need more help feel free to e-mail a librarian for some suggestions.

Goodreads is a wonderful resource to track your reading and to see what other people are recommending. Lists are generated by users, so it's a great opportunity to find what like minded people read. 

Novelist Plus
Novelist helps you find books similar to what you've read, and breaks down books by different key components. This resource is accessible through the Digital Maine Library.

Kent District Library What's Next Database
This is a spectacular database if you're looking for what to read next in your series. Searchable by author, series, book title, or genre.

Literature Map
This resource is an excellent means of finding your next favorite author. Enter an author's name and the Literature Map will create a visual web of similar authors. The closer an author's name is to the center of the web, the more similar they are to the author for whom you searched.
