Book Lists:

Are you looking for some reading inspiration? Check out our book lists!


In addition to our fantastic reading lists, check out the following:


Bookbrowse– a constantly updated database run by a group of (paid) dedicated readers who select their favorite new books to review and share. In addition to reviews, check out their “book finder” tab, read author interviews, find reading group guides, and view suggested book club titles. Click here to access from home.


Novelist- maintained by librarians across the country, this database offers  book reviews, read-alike suggestions, reading guides, and author profiles. Novelist is less selective and subjective than Bookbrowse; it’s also been around longer. However, Novelist only reviews fiction while Bookbrowse does both fiction and non-fiction titles.


Book News (100% Handpicked) displays handpicked lists by Mill Valley Library staff featuring books that have recently added to the library collection.


  • Book Riot (hip, edgy reviews and articles of selected new books)
