NoveList Plus is a database made available to MA libraries by Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC). You can find book reviews and other information of over 135,000 books. You can browse for books by reader's age group, subjects, genre, story and atmospheric elements, such as "Heartwarming and Quirky" or "Intensifying and Suspenseful", and Author Read-a-likes which suggests authors whose works are alike. There are also book discussion guides for parents or book clubs to spur deep discussions about a book.
NoveList is connected to C/W MARS catalog and users can search for the book in the library catalog directly from the database.
We at the library love to make reading suggestions! Just ask us, we are always happy to help. We are also always coming up with new ways to introduce readers to new books and have many of these resources available online. Take a look to find your next read.
