Fantastic Fiction

Fantastic Fiction is a great website when you want to look up an author’s collection of books, and it even lists the books of a series in order.  Also great for searching by genre (bottom of the page).

Literature Map

Literature Map is not only helpful, but it is a lot of fun to play with. Type in an author’s name and the website generates a web of other authors that have similar writing styles and genres. The closer the author’s name is to another, the more alike the authors are.

Whichbook

Which Book is another fun site to play with as it helps you pick a book based on your mood, which you can do for free or sign up and create saved lists. The site provides a list of sliders, and you can choose 4 of the sliders to indicate your mood (are you looking for something more Happy or Sad, Expected or Unpredictable, Easy or Demanding, No Sex or Lots of Sex, etc…). Once you’ve indicated your tastes, it will provide you with a list that fits your mood.
