Books I Already Like

LibraryThing

Enter book titles you’ve read and liked into the ‘BookSuggester’ box; if you want to find a book that’s nothing at all like one you’ve just read, enter that title into the ‘UnSuggester’.

TasteKid.com

Best results with titles, although authors can also be used.

What Should I Read Next

Browse for books using one of the biggest title databases available. You can also keep an eye on the descriptive tags under each suggestion to zoom in on plots that interest you more. (Author searches can also be used.)

Your Next Read

Most effective with newer books. Best results with titles, although authors can also be used.

Authors I Already Like

Enter an author into the ‘Map of Literature’ box to get a map of similar authors — the closer two authors’ names are, the greater the similarity. New maps can be generated by clicking any name that pops up during a search.

My Mood

Whichbook

Use the bars on the left to determine what sort of mood you’d like your book to create (you can make up to four selections). You can also browse lists of book types on the main page, or switch over to a “character, plot, setting” search.

 

Specific Story and Character Details

AllReaders.com

A bare-bones engine that still delivers; you can choose to search by plot and themes, main character details, setting, and writing style (including amounts of violence, sex, dialogue vs. description, etc.).

Whichbook

Under the menu, on the bottom left, there is an option to “Change to character, plot, settings”. Clicking this will bring up a new menu that will allow you to select particular features you want in your next book. You can also browse book lists on the home page, or search by the mood you’d like your book to create.
