It's the moment every book-lover knows all too well—you've reached the final page of a book you've absolutely loved. You linger on the last sentence, re-reading it a few times, stalling, savoring these final moments. As soon as your eyes drift up, the pangs of mourning take hold. You are lost, adrift without a heading. What can you read that could possibly compare to this last high? We've been there. We know what it's like. We can help! Book Advice will give you all the tools you need to find your next favorite book. Use Books & Authors or NoveList to find similar reads, or look at curated book lists from across the Internet.

Explore Catalog Lists

Use the library catalog to explore staff curated lists, award-winning books, new titles, and bestsellers. Use the Explore button on the catalog navigation bar and select a category to dive into.
