“What should I read next?” It’s a delightfully difficult question that librarians love to help answer.
If you already know what you like, our Read-alikes posts pair popular books with materials with similar themes, writing styles, humor, characters, or plots. Our Booklists posts also group books with similar themes (not related to any one particular title). If you want a quick easy recommendation you should check those out.
Mariah Recommends are more lengthy, detailed reviews from me, you’re very own Teen Librarian. If you are not sure what you are looking for that might be a good place to get some ideas.
If you need more help than that please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include READER’S ADVISORY in the subject line so I know to get to it right away. Also, try to answer a few of these questions in the email:
1. What was the best book you read lately?
2. What was the worst book you read lately?
3. Do you like books where things happen really fast? Or do you like books that explore a character’s development slowly over time?
4. Are you in the mood for any sort of book in particular?
I’ll try to get back to you with a few recommendations within a few days!
