NoveList Plus

Help everyone in your community realize a love of reading with NoveList Plus.

Features of NoveList Plus

NoveList Plus is a database of book recommendations for all library workers who do readers' advisory. Our expertise and passion for books and reading means you'll always be able to provide the best help to the readers in your community. 

Unique story elements 

NoveList’s unique story elements like appeal, genre, and theme help you understand what about a book your readers love, and help them find more that are their style.

Read-alike recommendations 

Our recommendations are crafted by experts, and we let you know who wrote a recommendation and why the recommendation makes sense. We offer recommendations for titles, authors, and series, as well as audiobooks.

Listen-alike recommendations for audiobooks 

The same expertise NoveList librarians use to recommend print books is also applied to audiobooks, one of the fastest-growing types of reading.

Series information

A common challenge for readers, NoveList Plus has full series information.

Specific Canadian, Australian, and New Zealand content

Your readers want to read books by their own authors. NoveList Plus includes relevant and regional content for readers and libraries in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
