Novelist Plus Help
Match your mood
Find books to match your mood. On the home screen you’ll find pre-selected I’m in the
Mood For combos. Select the level (adult, teen, ages 9-12, or ages 0-8) and decide what
mood you’re in. If you don’t like the suggested moods, click on the Appeal Mixer and
create your own match.
Find a read-alike
If you just finished a book you loved, type the name of the title (or author or series) into
the search bar at the top. On the right side of the page you will find librarian-created
Read-alike suggestions. If those aren’t enough, head to the bottom of the page and use
Search for More to find what you love.
Browse your favourite genres
Genre Browse will show you what’s new in a genre, as well suggestions for popular
sub-genres. Look for it in the top menu under Browse By... Genre.
Need a recommendation?
On the left side of the homepage the Recommended Reads lists in both fiction and
non-fiction, for all ages, are a great place to start.
Use the Advanced Search page to search for Audiobooks, Award Winners, Forthcoming
titles, Book Discussion Guides, Publication date, Author Nationality and more! After you
search you can narrow the results using the refine options on the left.
Save your favourites
Create an account (it’s free!) and log-in to save your favourite books, series, authors or
book discussion guides in your folder for later.
