How to find good books

I get frustrated when I go to the Library or  to a book sale and either come out empty handed or with something I later don't like.
 I know I'm not the only one that happens to.

 So today I am going to share some tips that help me find good books.

1. Use a website or app that gives you     recommendations.
   What Should I read next? Is an easy to use website. You just type in an author or book title and it will give you a list of books that are similar in style.

2.Make a list of what you are looking for.
  This will keep you organized and on track of what you are looking for.

3. Look for books by your favorite authors.
 Since those books are by your favorite author chances are you will like them.

4. Browse.
 If you have the time, sometimes browsing will help you come across a hidden gem.

These tips don't guarantee that you will find good books, but they do help.

What about you? How do you find good books?



  1. Nice post/topic, Ella. You know I agree. I feel like for me, instead of keeping track rigidly what I read/want to read, it's important to know what a reader likes - style/era/authors because it makes it less likely to buy a book that you'll dislike. That's not to say we shouldn't try new authors, but if we can nail down the genres we enjoy, then it makes reading less a chore and more beautiful. And the latter is what it should be. :)

  2. Thanks for leaving a comment Rissi!!!!
    I agree. I love reading books by new authors too, but books by my favorite authors are what I read the most of.
