Book Recommendations Requests

LibraryThing's official group for members to ask for book recommendations for themselves or for others.

In a reading rut and need a new title to help jolt you out of it? Have to buy a book for someone and have no idea? Post your recommendations requests here.

Include as many relevant details as you can—read-alikes, age of reader, preferred genres, etc.

This is a place to ask for recommendations, not to promote your book. For book promotion, check out Hobnob with Authors.
