Welcome

reader's advisory

Have you ever read a really good book but then had no idea what to read next? This guide may help you figure out what kinds of books you're interested in, and offers plenty of suggestions for your next read!

The main genres are listed on the left, while we also have a section devoted to movies and tv shows based on books, as well as sections with links to different book awards, reviews, bestseller lists, and much more.

Tips for Selecting Books

Some tips to consider when looking for a new book to read:

  • What kinds of books do you usually tend to read, or are generally drawn to? Do you like futuristic science fiction, or do you enjoy or a fast-paced thriller?
  • What have you recently read and enjoyed? Think about what you liked-the setting, the plot, the characters, etc.
  • What kinds of books do you avoid? Think about why certain books were not for you, or what you didn't like about them.
  • Why are you looking for a book to read? Are you in the mood to learn something new, finally read that classic novel, or get lost in a mystery?

If you still have questions, you can always chat with a SC4 Librarian. We can tailor our recommendations to your personal preferences to better help you select that next great page-turner!
