is a tool for book discovery. It can help you find recommended reads by genre or other characteristics. Included in its database are many, many book reviews, all from important periodicals that booksellers and librarians use to select what to buy. Readers can use them, too, to help them decide if a book might fit their interests.
In addition to the link above, NoveList Plus can be found on the library's website under Databases. Searching is easy! Just type in the title of a book for which you'd like to find reviews, or an author's name, or even a genre (fantasy, science fiction, romance, mystery, and so on).
If the book has been reviewed by Publishers Weekly
, Library Journal
, School Library Journal, Booklist
, or Kirkus Reviews
, those reviews will be included in full. Note: for those interested in what goes into writing one of these reviews -- the elements that should be included, length, ethics, and so forth -- check out Library Journal's reviewer guidelines
