Have you just finished the best book ever, and now you're looking for something just as good? Try NoveList Plus, our new recommendation tool. It suggests books based on subject matter, genre, reading level, and "appeal factors," such as a heartwrenching tone or gritty writing style.

NoveList Plus provides elusive series information, so you can figure out which book comes next. If fiction isn't what you're looking for, graphic novels and nonfiction are included. It also features "sound-alikes," suggestions for audiobooks that include audio characteristics.

Best of all, NoveList is in our catalog. Click on a specific title and look for the Recommendations section for read-alikes. If you're browsing a results list, you might see "While you Wait" suggestions for items that already have holds.

NoveList Plus is just part of us making sure that you're never without a good read. Don't forget We Recommend, book lists curated by APL librarians, and Personal Picks, a reading list customized to your tastes.
