Read A-likes Booklist (Genre Guide List)


I am attempting to create a cross reference list of books by genre category.  What does that mean?  Basically below there will several genres listed.  Click on the genre link and it will take you to a new page and the new page will list books that fits into that category.  They are just books that revolves around the same theme or topic.  Some books may be on multiple lists.  This is just a list.  Not a list of books I have reviewed.  So books in these lists I may not have read the books, or may not even like the book, but they are on the list because they fit into the category.  What’s the point then?  Well, ever been in a rut, trying to figure out what to read next, and so, you spend hours on the internet just trying to find similar books in a genre you are currently reading? In a few months hopefully this will save people some time.  This will be on-going project.  Please if you know of a book that should belong in a list let me know.

Categories are listed by author’s last name.  Series will be one entry under author’s name.  Synopsis of book will be featured and if it’s a series only the first book’s synopsis will be given to avoid any spoilers (as some later books in series have spoilers in their summary).

Again, if you know of a book or series and don’t see it on the list let me know.
