Have you reached the end of your to-read list? Pause to savor your triumph, and then get right back into it with these free, online suggestion generators. Once you have a recommended author/title or three, search our catalogue to see if the library has them for you to borrow/reserve.

Fantastic Fiction is a comprehensive guide to upcoming titles in a series, or books your favourite author thinks you might try next, or the most popular titles in a given genre. You can join up if you want, to compile lists and receive notifications, but either way, you're going to spend hours happily browsing.
You'll like this one: whichbook lets you use up to four sliders to choose books by Mood & Emotion. Or pick authors from a World Map, or by Characters & Plot. You can even decide how explicit the - ahem - romance gets.
Again, What Should I Read Next? lets you join with an email address and password, to save lists and so forth, but you don't have to. Enter a title and author you've enjoyed, and watch the site generate your next to-read list.
So much fun. Literature Map asks you to enter your chosen author, and then the site generates a cloud of other authors enjoyed by the same readers. The closer the names, the more likely the enjoyment. Branch out and travel far! Take a risk!

Or maybe just start by browsing the most popular lists.
