1. GoodReads Spring Book List
I have always loved how simple and thorough it is, particularly as a bibliophile. It is easy to make a list of books you have read, and see other books you haven’t read in “related” fields. It is also fun to see what your friends are reading, in case you need some more ideas on how to fill your bookshelves!
GoodReads keeps their audience up to speed with books that have recently come out, and books that they would suggest in different genres. Definitely a fun place to go.
2. What Should I Read Next?
What if you love Kellerman paperbacks, but you only have two of his books. This can help you find the others!
Or, you can type in your favorite subject and it will find books about that subject! Honestly, this is a lot of fun…many shelves will be filled, thanks to this tool.
3. Modern Mrs. Darcy
I also may absolutely love the lists on this page.
“Books that are really engaging, but easy to read,” or “Not cheerful and upbeat, but really good,” or “Looking for a good story: Literary Matchmaking!” This is a fun place to find good books for you!
4. Which Book???
What books are in the slapstick section? Looking for a “weird and wonderful” book to read? Looking for something in between “funny” and “serious”? More interested in a “gentle” book than a “violent” book? This place will help you out.
5. Barnes & Noble Reads
From basic lists such as, “The Book Nerd’s Guide to Picking Your Next Read”,
or “8 Movies You Didn’t Know Were Based On Books”,
to “The 5 Most Brain-Warping Fan Theories About Books”.
Honestly, this site is fun all the way around.
I can’t say I blame her at all for this sentiment!
Truly, the first piece of furniture I bought when I moved out on my own was a bookshelf. Because I have a load of books…and these books need a home.
Books on top of books and in front of books on the shelves, with books in between.
Ahh, the love of reading.
The thing is, I can get into a rut with reading.
I remember one season in college when I read every single Vonnegut book there was. (You can’t really read just one of his books to understand what he’s saying…you kind of have to read a few.)
But after that…then what?
I’ve read every single Brontë sister book ever published (including Anne’s books), most of Austen, Shelly, Wordsworth, Frost, Dickinson, Henry James, Kate Chopin…Steve Martin…
