Maybe we can take the mystery out of this question by offering some suggestions of web sites and magazines to help you choose new but similar books to the ones you are reading now. First, let's start right in the library. The library subscribes to "Book Page" a monthly newspaper of sorts for books lovers. "Book Page" reviews new and forthcoming titles and highlights some of the best books each month. The library receives fifty copies each month and it's free for you. Time magazine also publishes mostly monthly book reviews. Back issues check out for three weeks.

Web sites containing tons of reviews and recommendations:

Booklist Online - More than 130,000 book reviews for book lovers from American Library Association.

Common Sense Media - Good resource for parents.  Reviews movies, games, apps, websites, tv, books and music.

Goodreads - Share book recommendations with friends, keep track of reading lists or form a book club.

Librarything - Register to connect to people who read what you do! Suggestions for book clubs, too.

New York Times Book Review

NPR Books

Worldcat - Search for book titles in libraries worldwide.

Please ask library staff for more recommendations - it's what we are here for!
