Readalike Lists

What’s a readalike? “Readalikes” refer to books that have similar vibes, themes, or interests to other books. In the library world, we use readalikes to help readers find new books based on other books you’ve liked in the past. I love making readalike lists to help me recommend books, and they can also be useful for putting together displays or making “recommended reading lists” for my library.

If you’re a library worker, feel free to use any of these lists for displays, recommendations, or booklists! And if you’re not a library worker, but just a reader, I hope you’ll use these lists to discover some new books.

Happy reading! Ari
