Book Recommendations for Adults

Looking for a good book? Here are some resources to help you find the perfect read.

On our website

Fill out our Book Recommendation Form with your likes and dislikes, and receive a customized list of books recommended just for you.

Or request a Grab Bag and we’ll put together a bag of books for you on your requested subject or genre.

We also have an ever-growing collection of Book Lists created by our staff.

NoveList Database: Search for books by describing a plot, get read-alike recommendations, or browse themed book lists. You will need your library card number to log in. Novelist read-alikes also appear in the Minuteman catalog! Look up a book, click on the title, and scroll down to see if there are read-alikes.
